Retro Gaming: Chuck Rock
Friday is retrogame day.. and what a retrogame. This probably one of the worst games that ever existed yet.. as a kid I loved it. So here goes…
Chuck Rock was developed and published by core design in 1991 for the Atari ST and Amiga computer. One year later it came out for commodore 64. A few years later it also came out for the Sega Megadrive, Sega Master System, Sega Game Gear, Sega Mega CD, SNES and Game Boy.
Not bad for a bad game isn’t it?
You play as Chuck Rock, as you probably already guessed. He lives in a prehistorical Stone-age and he shared his world with dinosaurs, penguins, insects, mammoths, etc..
Chuck also speaks in this game, although it is very limited, the only thing he says is Unga Bunga.. I kid you not.
He defends himself from everything attacking him by either bumping them with his huge belly, jump kicking them or throwing rocks at them.
Chuck has a wife, called Ophelia Rock and one day she is kidnapped by Garry Gritter and so Chuck must go a rescue her. That’s basically it. You run around in a few levels, killing dinosaus and others by bumping them with your belly until you finally find your wife at the end of the game…
Not very clear? Hmm.. A few videos then!
