    Free Game of the Week: Chuckie Egg 4th Sep 07 at 11:29 AM
    This is the all-time classic 80s computer game, Chuckie Egg. The aimís to make the little yellow man, Hen-House Harry, collect the twelve eggs positioned in each level.Though watch out for the scary giant bird flying down to get you and be warned Ė itís maddeningly addictive!

    Woohoo! Brilliant! Chuckie Egg AND Repton - my two favourites as a kid. The only problem is I now forsee a lot of late nights playing these into the wee small hours!! It's 2.30am already - argh!!! Got work in the morning - suspect I may be a little bleary eyed!
  • absnasm
    Oh my God! This was my favourite favourite favourite when I was little! I once had a huuuuge fight with my mum because she was so desperate to have a go herself she wouldn't let me enter my name into the high score board. I think I actually ran away from home over that (to my friend's house a mile away).

    I had it on a tape for the ZX Spectrum. I accidentally recorded over a little bit of it and broke it. I have never admitted that it was me.

    AAAARRRRRR, they were the good old days, kids dont know there born now'a'days, I'm glad i'm of a age where i've seen the improvment in computer games, I remember when my older brother bought himself a Nintendo, I thought that was the future, what will we have in another five years.

    looking forward to seeing what the future of game play brings.....
    why do we do it,

    spending money we dont have on things we dont need :confused:

    Brilliant, I remember hours of family fun & fights playing Chuckie Egg & who's go it was, we had the greatest...A Dragon 32 that was connected to a dodgy old tape player!

    Remember playing the tape to get it to load, then after 35 mins it just stopped, makes me laug now but it was infuriating then!!

    Anyone remember Cuthbert Goes Walkabout??
