Chuckie Egg

When I was young the BBC ruled the world of school computers. Yes the BBC! The British Broadcasting Corporation started a skool literacy campaign (yes I know its school!! just a joke!). I really do not know the ins and outs of it all, but they partnered Acorn computers and made the BBC ‘B.’ This was an 8 bit computer. Then around 1986 or so they made a 16 bit computer called the BBC ‘Master.’ Ahhh the joy of a national broadcaster who are government funded and had money to burn. The BBC computer was ahead of its time and if you went to school between 1980-about 1990 odd you no doubt used the BBC computer. Then Apple came from America and the poor old BBC was removed from our schools forever – shame

 Anyway, that all serves as a rather long introduction to my main topic – Chuckie Egg. As far as I know, it is the only game that was made for the educational BBC computer. Oh the joy of lunchtimes playing Chuckie Egg. Well I came across this website, which has a fully functioning online edition of Chuckie Egg.

So for all you British schoolboys and girls, time to wipe that tear of nostalgia from your eye and collect the eggs once more. For all you non-British folk – time to get addicted to the best egg collecting game of all time! I love it!

    I always knew it as frogger as well! maybe its legal reasons?

    Playing Chuckie Egg is dead easy. Arrow keys make you run round, space for jumping. Just collect all the eggs, do not fall down holes and avoid the birds – then get to the next level!

    Enjoy the games!
