Chuckie Egg

Chuckie Egg is one of those addictive games that you could happily play all day, given nothing else to do. The scenario is very basic; you are a rather peculiar-looking man called Henhouse Harry, and you have to walk and fly around a complex of ladders, floors and (later on) elevators, collecting eggs.

Each round is completed when all of the eggs have been gathered, and you can gain extra points by eating the piles of grain that are also present. There is a bonus for completing the round as quickly as possible, and hazards are provided in the form of stork-like birds, which eat the piles of grain, and kill you if you get too close, with more features appearing as the game advances.

The game gets increasingly harder as you progress through different levels, and the graphics, although perhaps a little simple, are quite pleasing, as are the sound effects.
