Review of 'Chuckie Egg 2'

Unlike Chuckie Egg, the sequel was not so well received by the fans, perhaps because they were expecting an arcade game as straightforward as the previous one.

I think the game suffered the same evolution that Manic Miner / Jet Set Willy had: the first plays level by level in a straightforward fashion, the second requires patience and planning within its larger size maze.

I personally think its a very good sequel, with greater variety of screens, interesting characters and situations and it plays just as well as the first. I find the scene with the Green Dragon especially delightful. But there are many others, such as the dog at the start, the egg maker or the screens with the gooses from the first Chuckie.
