The world's best beat 'em up game of all time makes its 20th anniversary! Every kid of the 90s happily remembers the times when we were all waiting in the column, waiting for the player to run out of his coins, so we could stick to that arcade machine and play Mustapha and the companions. Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is released in April 1993, exactly 20 years ago, by world's famous Capcom. The game was based on the comic book series called Xenozoic Tales, and was produced as a tie-in to the Cadillacs and Dinosaurs animated series which was aired during the same year the game was released.
