I can't say I liked this game. To its credit, it's put together very well, with reasonable graphics and good movement for the main character - but so were the dozen or so lookalikes that came before it. I just can't see the point in yet another return to the game. Groan.

An arid game: dried-up gameplay, desiccated graphics, not one to quench your addictive thirsts.

Indeed the gameplay is exceptionally over-difficult making it frustrating and annoying rather than enjoyable and amusing. Chubby Gristle tastes of an 8 bit title which has been rehashed for the ST. And at the price it is an expensive way to discover platform games To my mind it falls flat on its face.

The graphics and tune are good but nothing special, though Chubby's voice is quite amusing. Hardly state-of-the-art.

With a price tag of nearly nine quid, I'd expect a little more for my money than the archaic and unoriginal platform action on offer here.

Chubby Gristle is amusing and original, but the game style itself is old, and the game hard enough right from the start to put a lot of people off. And twenty or so screens isn't an awful lot for those who stick with it.

Wer pixelgenaue Sprünge sowie Krümel-Sprites mag und sich von der mäßigen Grafik nicht abschrecken läßt, dem wird das Spiel am ehesten gefallen. Leider gibt es nur gut 20 Bilder, in denen verschiedene Gegenstände einzusammeln sind. Ähnliche Programme wie „Monty on the Run“ übertreffen dieses Werk um Längen. Chubby Gristle ist wirklich nur für absolute Fans dieses Spiel-Genres interessant.

A very ordinary game unredeemed by any special qualities. Chubby Gristle would only be worth considering if it were priced at a fiver. Even then, four screen of this stuff per pound sterling would still hardly be good value for money.

One of the worst attempts at a platform game we've seen for some time.

If Teque had added something new to the theme Chubby Gristle may have been more addictive. One knows what to expect because it has all been done so many times before - and by the same programming team. Chubby Gristle is far too simplistic and annoying to make any impact on the Atari ST.
