Description

Chubby Gristle the car park attendant is on a mission to get as much food into him as possible, and avoid any visits to the health farm or gym. You play Chubby in this Monty Mole-inspired platform game. The screens contain bonus foods to be collected - burgers, chocolate and similar. Progress through the flick-screen levels is achieved by jumping onto platforms, scaling up ropes and using moving ledges.Large falls or contact with the pre-programmed hazards costs you a life.

Trivia

Inspiration

According to Teque's Peter Harrap, Chubby Gristle was based on a car park attendant who worked opposite Teque's offices. He was always turfing them out of his car park, even if they were only turning the cars around in it! "You can't park here" was his catch phrase.
