Risky Rick - Rick Dangerous port whips its way onto the Colecovision

Here on Indie Retro News we've always had a soft spot for the Core Design and published by Firebird in 1989 game 'Rick Dangerous'. It is a very challenging action platformer that made you feel like an Indiana Jones character traversing dangerous locations such as caves and temples, avoiding the bad guys and making sure you didn't get hurt by deadly spikes and rolling boulders. It was such a well known game it appeared on the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, and DOS but there was a system it didn't appear on, and that was the CBS Colecovision, at least until now.

Rick Dangerous or as this one is called ' Risky Rick ' had its first showing at the RGC 2016 event, which was shown working on the CBS Colecovision developed by Easter Egg, who was also behind the fantastic Amstrad 128k remake of the Shoot em up game R-Type. Fast forward to this week however and ArcadeVision has announced Risky Rick in Dangerous Traps, the most impressive game ever released for the ColecoVision on a standard 32k Cartridge.

As noted on the main website of which you can put your money down for this awesome port. This is the fruit of years of passionate work done by Easter Egg, with the goal to produce a smooth, funny and advanced gameplay for our beloved console. To make the most of the ColecoVision, this game was 100% coded in assembly language from scratch and designed using customs tools and routines. Pushed the machine were nobody has without the help of extra hardware modules.
