Caveman Ninja (known in Japan as Joe & Mac: Caveman Fight) is a side-scrolling platformer developed and released by Data East for arcades in 1991.
Set in the prehistoric era, Caveman Ninja has cavemen duo Joe and Mac fighting rival cavemen and deadly animals to rescue various damsels in distress. While they start with their melee club attack, they can obtain throwable weapons (such as boomerangs and stone wheels) as power-ups.
The game has numerous console and computer ports in both North America (as Joe & Mac) and Europe (as Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja), released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, Amiga, PC (running MS-DOS), Nintendo Entertainment System, and Game Boy between 1991 and 1993. The SNES version, the only one ported by Data East themselves (and the only one released in Japan), is known for its various changes like removing some weapons and the ability to charge up weapons while adding an overworld map system and new bonus levels.
The Zeebo version was ported by Onan Games and published by G-mode.
