First released in 1985 by A&F Software, Chuckie Egg is one of the most revered Spectrum games ever made, although it was unfortunately never made for the PC. The goal, which is reminiscent of Lode Runner, is simple: move the farmer as he collects eggs, while avoiding the birds. But it's the combination of simplicity and eggcellent [EG] game play makes Chuckie Egg an epitome of classic arcade games.

Chuckie Egg: The Next Batch is by far one of the best Chuckie Egg remakes for the PC (several other versions exist, including the designer's own DirectX port, as well as Java version). In addtion to 8 levels from the original game, The Next Batch adds 7 more devious new levels, as well as extra levels you will get only after beating all 15. Fans of the original Chuckie Egg and Lode Runner series will find much to like in this polished, highly playable fanmade tribute. Highly recommended!
