Gameplay[edit]

The Flintstones is an action game set across 24 levels. The player controls Fred Flintstone, who must complete seven tasks, which include locating his daughter Pebbles, and a necklace belonging to his wife Wilma. The player is capable of jumping, and uses a club as a weapon against various enemies throughout the game.[2]
