About The Game

A bunch of Neanderthals nerds have raided your village and have kidnapped all the babes! As the Caveman Ninja duo, Joe & Mac must face all kinds of prehistoric perils in order to rescue all the girls. Features awesome graphics & fun filled gameplay.

Trivia

Released in February 1991.

This game is known in Japan as "Tatakae Genshijin - Joe & Mac".

A bootleg of this game is known as "Stone Age".

The Caveman Ninja title seems to be a parody of Data East's previous arcade hit "Bad Dudes" title in Japan : "Dragonninja" :)

Updates

The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
