Description

In the game Charlie the Chef has to bake a cake, but the ingredients (Mixed Peel, Chunky Chocolate, Crafty Cheese, Sneaky Sugar and Colonel Custard) are reluctant. To bake the cake Charile have to mix ten ingredients in the cake but a whole lot of other things (nuts, bolts, screws) flies around and end up in the mix as well and spoil the cake. So Charlie have to watch out what and what not to but in the mix. Every time a non-eatable item is mixed in Charlie have to but in an extra eatable item.

Trivia

Cancelled versions

  • The well known C64 musician Martin Galway begun to code a port to C64, but didn't finish it. Taken from GTW64 - "The code that was recovered from Martin’s work disks shows an early preview where you can control the main character and there are some enemies running around. It is not playable however apart from just being able to control the enemy."
  • There is a unreleased version for the BBC Micro. From the site GTW64 - "Cookies existence on the BBC Micro was to be something of a shock to many people, especially Stairway To Hell (http://www.stairwaytohell.com), who were recovering lost BBC Micro titles through their website. Regular contributor to Stairway To Hell, Dick Greening caused shockwaves by contributing the previously unreleased (and complete!) disk image of Cookie. The game has converted extremely well, with the additional use of colour to enhance graphics on the Beeb. Gameplay is left untouched, featuring play ability that matches its spectrum counterpart. Not only is the game finding significant, but there are also unheard musical delights composed by none other than Martin Galway; a find in itself. Great renditions of Food Glorious Food and other jingles add to what is a fantastic conversion."
