Video Game: Radical Rex
Shred pre-historic pavement.

Radical Rex is a Platform Game for Sega Genesis, Sega CD and Super Nintendo, developed by Beam Software and published by Activision in 1994.

The plot is simple: An evil gopher-like creature named Skriitch wants to help the mammals rule the world, so he casts a spell on the dinosaurs that turns them against one another to help him achieve that goal. However, main character Radical Rex, a skateboarding, fire-breathing, "too hip to be extinct" T.rex, was unaffected by the spell. So he sets off to rescue the dinosaurs, which include his girlfriend, Rexanne. Strangely, the SNES version features a human wizard named Sethron as the Big Bad, rather than Skriitch.

The game has largely been forgotten, and is a rather generic 2D platformer. However, the nice graphics and animation, interesting levels, and cool music make it worth checking out.
