Description from the packaging.

He's heavily armed, rigorously trained, and highly motivated...

He's got a six-shooter, "some dynamite" and a big stick.

He's up against Amazon tribesmen, Nazi agents, ruthless assassins and other assorted bad guys. And he has to dodge rampaging boulders, poison blowdarts and deadly pits at every turn. No wonder he can't get decent life insurance.

He's a desperate hero for desperate people. He's also the most fun you'll ever have at your computer.

His name is Rick Dangerous. There's a little of him in all of us.
