As a caveman in Frak!, you must find a number of keys scattered throughout each of the game's 96 reversible levels (a total of 192). Acquiring all keys in a given stage allows you access to the next. The lovable troglodyte isn't invincible and, in fact, is downright fragile. He can be killed by daggers, balloons and a number of furry game denizens or by falling to his death. The only weapon in hand is a trusty yo-yo used to smack the enemies.
During the quest, the caveman finds lanterns and diamonds, both of which provide a score bonus — accumulating enough points results in an extra life. Gameplay is a mixture of platform and puzzle-based action. You maneuver the caveman by jumping from platform to platform but must determine which is the shortest jump possible — otherwise, he falls ignominiously to his death. Each time he falls or is attacked by an enemy, he utters the word "Frak!" in disgust.
The game can be played by up to nine players taking alternating turns and comes with an on/off toggle for music and a high score tracker. Who said the life of a caveman was dull? ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
