Game Review

Chuck Rock is a prehistoric platformer created by Core Design for the Amiga and released in 1991. The same year it was released for the Atari ST.

The game is in no way meant to be true to the Stone Age, as dinosaurs and humans populate the Earth together in this, silly side-scroller. Chuck himself is the crass and brutish lead vocalist of a local rock band and becomes the target of a jealous rival who abducts his babelicious girlfriend. In order to get her back, Chuck must use his rock throwing skills and generous dinosaur steak gut to thwart his enemies. Chuck must travel across varied lands, solve a few puzzles, and defeat enemies on his journey to save his girl. He can also find a few friendly dinos to help him out along the way. Bright, cartoonish graphics complement the playfully absurd antics of our caveman hero and add to the fun.

Thanks to its success, the game was ported to several platforms. The Commodore 64 was created by the Italian team Genias. Virgin and Sony released the game for the Genesis, Sega Master System, Sega CD, SNES and more. Generating two sequels, Chuck Rock is a jocular little walk on the prehistoric side. Unga bunga!
