Description

You are a bird. A chaffinch called Chaffy, to be exact. Life was good until your best friend Bluey the Blue-tit was kidnapped by Satan's cat, Mewcifer. To get Bluey back, you will have to journey to Satan's domain - at the very core of the earth!

Fly through seven levels of vertically-scrolling action, each bringing Chaffy closer to the planet's molten core. The quest begins high in the sky, avoiding airplanes and oddly hazardous clouds. Chaffy will progress through woods, a bat-filled cave system, an infamous landfill site and then into tunnels of burning magma. If he knocks into anything, one of five available lives is lost. To progress to the next level, Chaffy will need to collect six Chaffincium crystals, the source of his power.

Trivia

Development

Chaffinch Challenge was an entry in Retro Remakes' 'Look Around You' mini-comp, based on an episode of the British parody TV show of the same name. Entrants had to make a game using one of the fake game titles mentioned in the episode. Other entries included Horsefighter, Space Cabbage and Snobby.

In keeping with the TV show, Chaffinch Challenge has been crafted to look and feel like an early '80s game, with authentic ZX Spectrum-style graphics and a soundtrack consisting of classic David Whittaker tunes.
