I was a massive fan of Chuckie Egg on the BBC Micro when I was about 10 years old. There have been a couple of ports, but it wasn’t until 2009 that Mark Lomas released the ultimate version built on an BBC emulator for the PC.
This is my guide to each Chuckie Egg level:
- Best score: 2,260
- Number of hens: 2
- Speed of hens: slow
Level 1 strategy
The first level is dominated by a central ladder running through all five platforms. Two hens start in the top left of the level, moving slowly towards the bottom. They can sometimes get in the way on the central ladder, but several nearby platforms can be used to wait them out.
The bottom two platforms have plenty of ladders to avoid getting trapped and to practice running and jumping.
