There really isn't much to be said about Chuckie Egg. The goal of the game is incredibly straightforward as you must collect all the eggs in every level. To do so, you'll hop to and from platforms, climb ladders and avoid a few chickens as they roam the the level stopping only to eat bits of chicken feed. Developed by Nigel Alderton, Chuckie Egg was title that was big in the UK. There's delight in its simplicity, but here's a fun fact: I rage quit this game several times.
The problem I had with Chuckie Egg is that the character you control doesn't have the grace and finesse for jumping unlike today's video game heroes. Much like Ghosts 'n Goblins, you lose direct control of your character once the jump button is pressed and you can't change direction while in flight. That's the thing about games like this. They're deceptively simple and the moment you start losing lives, you'll attack the game carelessly, making it seem more difficult than it really is (another good example of this would be Super Mario Bros.). As such, this is not a game for people with anger issues.
Big thanks to the website www.repton3.co.uk for creating an online emulated version of the game (because I had no idea how to get the Amstrad emulator to work).
