New game's PROM
Speaking and standard versions
100 % compatible
This new game PROM implements two new features:
- Game Menu video in French, English or German (DIP switch selectable).
- New rule (enabled by DIP switch) set.
The new rule makes the game easier, but also more attractive. In the original Caveman, it is indeed frustrating definitely losing the ball when the Caveman is eaten by a Tyrannosaurus. With this newrule, it now has 3 lives for the video game (for each ball). When the Caveman is eaten, a life is simply count-down and the ball returned to Pinball. We can then continue to play, except when there are no more life, in which case the ball is lost.
What does this version ?
A criticism that has often been made to the Caveman is that this Pinball was not really one. This is the fact that the balance between the video game and Pinball is too perfect, on both we lose the ball, in one than the other. With this new rule, on restores interest Pinball, while not sacrificing the video game.
The new rule is activated by a DIP switch, it is very easy to go back to the original operation by disabling it.
Optional display module
The new game's PROM is scheduled to drive an electronic module connected to A3J6. This module is not required to play, but it will display two lamps to indicate the number of remaining Caveman. These lamps are located in the display box, with a custom backglass.
Screens of the video game
Three languages are available in the original game: French, English and German.
The levels of the video game
The game has height levels, each having two sequences (5 Brontosaurus then 5 Triceratops).
Get the game PROM (2 KB) file and program it in a 2716 EPROM (or EEPROM 2816). Then install this memory in place of the old game PROM.
