Chuckie Egg 32K v1.1


  • In some instances, Hen-House Harry got stuck on an elevator platform. This has been fixed.
  • NTSC fixed. The game runs faster and there is some flicker on the top left of the screen. However, the game should be playable. NTSC compatibility has not been tested on real hardware. Please report any bugs here.

Very nice game. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 00:17:11. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

Just came across your port. Fantastic work, a brilliant port. Love it!

Congrats Derek ! Awesome port.

Fantastic. Great gameplay. Thank you for creating this and on the mighty Vic-20 too. Brilliant.

Without colour clash you get half the resolution. You want colour clash!

Wow, Wow, Wow. What a fine job! Joystick support is amazing. I'm just missing the zxmkl controls I use on the Beeb! Many thanks!
