Back before the word Frak! became a swear on Battlestar Galactica, it was a 1986 platform game on the BBC Micro. My friend had a Beeb and a colour Sony monitor, and we would play Frak! for hours, as well as the excellent Mr Ee! (Mr Do! clone).
You control a caveman called Trogg, who had to traverse various platforms and defeat monsters armed with only a yo-yo. Timing had to be pixel perfect, and it was quite frustrating to complete.
After completing 3 levels the game screen turned itself upside down and you would play again. Memorable for the fact that the caveman would cry "FRAK!" in a speech bubble whenever he died.
Also released on the Electron and C64.
