Dangerous Dave is a 1988 computer game. It was developed for the Apple II and DOS as an example game to accompany his article about his GraBASIC, an Applesoft BASIC add-on, for the UpTime disk magazine.
The game is a platform game written by John Romero. The objective of the game is to explore the deserted pirate's hideout where Dave's rival, Clyde Cooper, hid ten skateboarding trophies. On his quest Dave will encounter various monsters, traps and other perils, as well as treasure, useful items and weapons.
