I’m not sure why Henhouse Harry has been made as large as he is in the Atari 800 version of Chuckie Egg, but he looks ridiculous…
Harry’s movement (and jump) is slow; the chasing birds are slow and flickery. Harry doesn’t seem to be able to do those neat (and sometimes necessary) ‘belly bounces’ on the platforms either.
The only saving grace is that the controls are not sticky, but the game is way too easy to have any real lasting appeal. This is barely Chuckie Egg, and is a bit of an embarrassment for the Atari 8-bit machines. Should’ve been a lot better!
