Chuckie Apple Implementation Challenge
Having been hidden in an attic for over 20 years, we're as keen as anyone to actually play Chuckie Apple
. To that end,
we thought we'd reward any coder willing to take on the challenge of converting the design
into a finished, playable game. There is no time limit for entries to each of three categories - it's first come,
first serve. In the unlikely event that multiple entries are submitted at the same time, our own panel of judges will
compare and declare the winner.
1) BBC Micro Model B
2) Spectrum 48K
3) Modern PC (preferably cross-platform but Win32 minimum) - Winner announced!
There are no large sponsors behind this site, so the prize is a little more unique. The winner of each category will
receive a copy of The Chuckie Egg Professional's Resource Kit Bootable CD
and an original Spectrum release cassette
personally signed by the original author, Nigel! Send us an email
with a link to
your entry. Note that although our categories cover the most popular platforms, submissions from other platforms will
also be considered for a prize.

Category #3: Modern PC winner: Pitfall Jones' Chuckie Apple for Windows: CE 25th Anniversary Release
It's here - the first fully playable version of Chuckie Apple
Tom Walker's abandoned Windows version of Chuckie Apple
Here are a couple of screenshots of a Windows attempt at Chuckie Apple started by Tom Walker.
"The first is what the game actually shows when you run it. As you can see, there's not much game there yet...
The second is cropped + edited to show what the game might _actually_ look like!"
Sadly, Tom has had to side-line the project due to other commitments. Looks cool, tho!
