Charlie the Duck is a fun cartoon platformer reminiscent of Super Mario Bros. starring Charlie, a cute duck you must help get through the levels. Although its similarities to Nintendo's classic make the game familiar and very endearing, Charlie the Duck contains enough charm all of its own. Similar to Super Mario, you collect coins and diamonds, stomp on creatures to get rid of them and avoid others that are hazardous to touch. The game also features many surprises, most of which are hidden in blocks that are scattered across the level. There's various environments that present new and original challenges. Generally, you have to keep going through a level until you see a sign with Charlie's likeness. Fortunately, there's a midway checkpoint that the game returns you to if you die towards the end.

With bright cartoon graphics, an intuitive interface, and the fun, non-violent gameplay, Charlie the Duck is a game that should be especially appealing to young gamers in your house. Highly recommended, and well worth registration required to play beyond the first three levels in the shareware version.

The official site (link below) now also hosts Charlie 2. The game reviewed here is being sold at $7.50.
