Chuck, a typical caveman slob, is slouched in his comfy
stone chair, glued to the T.V., drinking a can of his favourite
beverage - beer! This seems like any other day in Chuck's
life; even the Aerial Bird is getting bored with the same old
thing and can't help nodding off.
Ophelia, Chuck's wife, is going about her mundane daily
chores, hanging out yet another load of washing. However,
unknown to her, the day is about to change!
As Ophelia bends down to take some washing from her
basket, the evil Gary Gritter, a long-time admirer of hers,
sneaks up behind her with his club raised. Just as she
hears something moving about behind her, down comes the
club with a thud on the back of Ophelia's head.
Chuck, startled by the commotion outside, lifts his
overweight frame from the comfort of his chair to do some
investigating. Then, remembering that all his clothes are in
the wash, he covers his pride with his hands before
venturing outside, only to find no Ophelia, just a rumpled
pile of washing and fresh tracks where something or
someone seems to have been dragged through the dirt.
A little bit embarrassed by his current state of dress, Chuck
dashes behind the nearest bush and emerges wearing the
latest in designer leaf and twig pants! Now Chuck begins
his search for Ophelia...
In spite of his size, Chuck can walk, jump, swim and lift
heavy rocks. These rocks are very useful to Chuck -not
only can they be thrown at oncoming dinosaurs, but he can
also use them as steps to get to otherwise inaccessible
areas. Only one rock can be carried at any one time. This
hinders Chuck's jumpimg ability, dependant upon the size
of the rocks.
When Chuck isn't carrying anything he can still use his
huge stomach to "Belly-Butt" enemies or kick them out of
his way with his enormous size 14 feet.
When it comes to swimming, keep a close eye on Chuck's
face on the panel under the game screen. This shows how
long Chuck can hold his breath for underwater. When the
face is blue, his energy will start to go down. Chuck can
take a breath of air by popping his head out of the water.
