This guide is for the 1988 Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, MSX, Commodore Amiga and Sega Master System game. For the 1993, 1994, 1995 and 2012 Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Super Nintendo Entertainment System and iOS games, see The Flintstones (1993), The Flintstones (1994), The Flintstones (1995) and The Flintstones (2012).

The Flintstones is an action game, which had been developed by Tegue Interactive for Grandslam Entertainment and released on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, MSX and Commodore Amiga in 1988, and later for Sega, when released on their Master System in 1991; it is based upon the Hanna-Barbera television series of the same name, which aired from 1960 to 1966, and the fact that Peebles is present in the game also suggests that it is set in early 1963 (as Bamm-Bamm, who was left upon the Rubbles' doorstep later in that same year in the show, is not present). It's also the second title in the The Flintstones series - the first one being Yabba-Dabba-Doo (1985).

Story[edit]

This is from the back of the cassette's, or disk's in the case of the Commodore Amiga version, inlay card, the front of which is shown in the image to the right (it also features Betty, who is not present):

BOWL OR BUST!
Fred and Barney want to go bowling but Wilma has other ideas
and guess who's left holding the baby?

However, this is off the back of the box of the SMS's cartridge, which was released three years later and looks identical to the other versions' inlay cards apart from having the Sega logo at the top of it:

YABBA DABBA DOO!
It's the weekend and Fred Flintstone returns home from work very
excited about the Bedrock Super Bowl final tonight. As he arrives home Wilma reminds him
of his promise to paint the living room before her mother arrives on Sunday.
Wilma insists that Fred can only go bowling if he paints the living room, properly, before he
goes bowling. Reluctantly, Fred agrees, but he doesn't bargain for baby-sitting Peebles and
painting at the same time. Chaos, fun and Flintstones humour is everywhere!
