The sequel was later remade on the SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem and the GameBoy under the name ''Prehistorik Man''. In this one, a bunch of dinosaurs stole the village's food supplies. Having no way to replenish them before the winter strikes, the village Elder sends Sam into a quest to find the fabled Dinosaur Graveyard, so they can get enough [[WeirdCurrency bones]] to buy a new supply. As an extra motivator, Sam also gets the beautiful Elder's daughter's hand if successful. This game version was laster re-released on the GameBoyAdvance.
