Excellent unofficial PC conversion of Chuckie Egg, one of the all-time classics on 8-bit machines, e.g. the Commodore 64 and Amstrad CPC. If you've never played this game, you don't know what you're missing. The goal is simple: collect all the eggs on each level within the generous time limit, and also avoid the blue flamingo-like birds. Yes, don't be fooled by the cutesy look of these killer flamingoes. The idea is unabashedly simple, and the graphics may not be state-of-the-art, but remember the saying, "graphics do not make a game"? This is certainly true for this game - it's amazingly addictive. Here is your chance to experience some of the best 8-bit arcade classics that never saw light on the PC. Two thumbs up!
