Contrary to its name, Prehistorik Man on the Game Boy is actually based on Prehistorik 2. Although mediocre, it makes up for that by being very advanced in the graphics and effects department.

Secret Greetings Message

Debug Crash Handler

Prehistorik Man (USA, Europe)-crash.png

All versions of this game have a working crash handler. It's even still linked to some portions of the code. There are two places in the boss screen handling routine that can execute it if something goes wrong. Use Game Genie 00D‑658‑6EA+00D‑668‑D5A to make this screen appear as soon as you reach the first boss.

This screen will show the current registers and banks state. You can also watch a memory dump using the D-Pad.
