A thoroughly enjoyable game. I will be playing many more times.

An enjoyable game with good graphics. If you are wondering what that duck is doing in the cage, clear eight sheets of the game to find out. The nightmare has begun.

The best of the bunch is without doubt Chuckie Egg, by A&F Software. It is destined to become an all time Spectrum classic.

My three year old can just about manage, and he thinks this is the best thing since Postman Pat. I agree with him.

There's nothing at all pretentious about this game. It's a goof solid arcade action which follows a tried and tested formula which has proved very successful over the past year or so.

An excellent arcade game, with high addictivity built in. But it's very expensive at almost £8 - the one drawback.

I did find the musical interludes annoying after a while but on the whole it's a most enjoyable fun game and very addictive, if a trifle pricey. Try it.

The inclusion of a giant caged duck (we'll call him Ed) raises a few questions (not least the moral question of cross-breeding), but play through the standard levels and Ed is set free to fly around the screen with even more menace than those clucking hens. Further play throughs then see Ed and his ladies team up to defend their potential offspring and you will need to prove that you're no chicken if Chuckie Egg is to be beaten.

The chief delight of this ladder/maze/platform conundrum lies in simply reaching out of the way places in search of the eggs needed to reach the next level, whilst cocking a snoop at the prowling ducklings. Delicate hops, deft jumps and evasive action are very much the order of the day. Definitely for the platform-jumper enthusiast, as the graphics and sound can only be construed as adequate

This game may never rival Starglider II's graphics or compete with the sound of Mortville Manor, but it'll probably outlast both of them. It has the addictive qualities which keep you coming back again and again. In no time at all you'll be voting for battery hens - gathering eggs sure ain't easy.

As far as platform and ladder type games go, this one isn't too bad, but the price may well put many people off.

Grafisch und steuertechnisch konnte CHUCKIE EGG zwar nicht so ganz überzeugen, ich erinnere nur an die Plattformen im Hühnerstall, wogegen der Rest so einigermaßen stimmte. Dazu ertönt noch eine flotte Musi. was will man mehr? Trotzdem ist CHIJCKIE EGG nur für absolute Fans zu empfehlen, denn sehr neu ist die Idee nun weiß Gott nicht. Dennoch ein ganz ordentliches Game.
