Plug a controller into the system. In the Mega Drive game the "Spooky Cave" stage has a limited field of vision (you can only see a small circle in around you), whilst in this version you can see the whole screen fine, and they've added a proper background in. In fact I have been playing Chuck Rock all of today. On the downside I would say that the game sometimes has a very sectioned/layered look to it, generally the backgrounds tend to have layers of repeating patterns (Butterfly Grove is very guilty of this), this look is probably there to make it easier to add a high numbers of parallax scrolling layers. Other prehistoric racers include Millstone Rockafella, Brick Jagger and Jimi Handtrix. Chuck Rock hasn't been the same since his long-time rival in love, Gary Gritter, kidnapped his wife, the beautiful Ophelia. It was followed by an enhanced Sega CD version and the eventual sequel. Size: 1.10MB. Alternatively the character could pick up and "chuck" rocks at opponents. This version has no intro. For me personally, I think that a game like this (which is not exactly brimming with originality in the gameplay department) needs something to make it stand out, and for me the humour, and charm is one of the only things which push this game into the "above average" bracket, I simply find both the Amiga versions more likeable overall, whilst I find the flashy Sega versions to be a little bit overly brash and ugly on some stages. A Commodore 64 port followed in 1992 and an Amiga CD32 version in 1994. The background animations here are much weaker than they were in the Mega Drive game, the lava does a much more simplistic colour cycling animation, there are no embers, and there's no wavy heat or water effects for those levels. One of the especially noteworthy compositions here is the one for the lava levels. Chuck Rock is a 1991 slapstick side-scrolling platform video game developed and published by Core Design for the Atari ST and Amiga computers. Mega-CD - This version is virtually identical to the Mega Drive version, the only real differences I've noticed are that here the rotating rocks have been revamped (and funnily enough look worse now in my opinion), and the entrance of the bird on the "Dippy the Dinosaur" stage has been noticeably improved. There is a boss at the end of each level. The Ostrich section in the Mega Drive version kind of felt like a bonus stage, it was fast, full of candy, and had very few hazards and enemies, here its more like a normal level and you have to be more careful on it. Amiga - The menu screen is still here, and they've removed the ugly between-levels picture. //-->. Insert the CHUCK ROCK Game Pak, label facing front, in the system Game Pak slot. There is also a puzzle element to the game, as certain rocks are used to reach high areas. Virgin Interactive published the game for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Master System, … View all SNES emulators. google_ad_width = 728; Amiga/CD32 - Generally the detail and pixel art in this version is better than it was in the Sega versions. Mega Drive/Mega CD - The colour use here is pretty good overall, though can be a bit inconsistent at times. Genesis was faster, so gameplay and response was generally better SNES had better graphics and sound, so it usually looked and sounded better ===== Games with similar ports on both SNES and Genesis: ===== 3 Ninjas Kick Back Aaahh!! Turn off your Super Nintendo Entertainment System by sliding the POWER bar away from the Game Pak slot. Amiga CD32/Mega CD - These versions have replaced the slide show intro with a fully animated intro. The setting of the game is a prehistorical Stone Age-era world that is shared by both neanderthals, woolly mammoth, saber-tooth tigers, dinosaurs, and various assorted wild primeval monsters such as prehistoric mammals, giant insects, human-eating plants, and other exotica; thus, the setting is similar to that of films such as One Million Years B.C., or television shows such as The Flintstones or Dinosaurs. Where it comes to the rest, the tree stages are better on Amiga in my opinion (those stages were actually a bit dull on Mega Drive), and Spooky Cave is pretty comparable in gameplay (its pacier on Amiga, but the Mega Drive version is more tense). Amiga - This version has very, very good sound effects, the sound effects add a lot of charm to the game and are diverse and varied. As I say, the Megadrive version of Chuck Rock is mostly identical to the original computer games, but here’s something that’s different: in the Amiga version, this huge dinosaur tried to take an actual shit on Chuck’s head when he walks underneath it. Amiga/CD32- The main scrolling here is fairly smooth, but not quite as good as the Mega Drive game. Chuck is a guitarist and singer (or shouter) in a rock band along with some other cavemen, his attractive wife Ophelia Rock, and a long-haired dinosaur bass player; and whilst on stage he wears a long wig to hide his balding head. Some examples of differences between this version and the Mega Drive version are that Jr says "come on" during his idle animation, the rideable creatures exclaim when they jump (I particularly liked this sound effect), and the turtle, and growling centipedes have much, much better sound effects. Mega Drive - The sound effects here are good, and do the job respectably but I don't think they quite live up to the other versions (the burning turtle's yelp really isn't that good for example), and there are also some seemingly unpolished areas (Jr's idle animation for instance has him turning to the camera and moving his mouth, but saying nothing). Some dinosaurs will assist Chuck, such as the brontosaurus that helps Chuck across a swamp, although almost all dinosaurs encountered will attack Chuck. On the downside two of the bosses here have taken a very noticeable hit, the first boss (see screenshot 1), and the sea monster boss both look quite ropey in comparison to their Mega Drive counterparts (thankfully the other bosses in the game are much more comparable). 2. Outside of those, Reggie (the weird dog-thing) has extra animation for winning the bonus levels, he gets sick if you eat all the fruit, and he pees on the statue of Chuck Sr. Mega CD - Many, but not all of the sound effects from the Amiga game have been added to this version, there are also a few new sound effects, and changes to the existing ones (mainly noticeable were the belching, and growling sfx). I think this set-up still looks very cool in itself to be honest, and I think the foreground parallax is a nice touch. View video of game. Chuck Rock spawned two video game sequels.

Most Genesis ran at higher resolutions than SNES games (320x224 vs. 256x224), however, so some games looked sharper on the platform. Most of the sports games, for example - though some of the later Madden and NBA Live games were very good on SNES, those series always excelled on the Genny, at least in my eyes. The eponymous Chuck Rock is an overweight, square-jawed caveman characterized by loutish and lewd behaviour perhaps influenced by the lad culture of the 1990s. Firstly, obviously the quality is much higher here, its CD audio we're talking about! which was shouted by Chuck at the start of each level. Mega Drive/Mega CD - The main scrolling is smooth, and the backgrounds often have ten odd layers of parallax, which is more than most platformers on Mega Drive have! The jump sound effect for the animal helpers is still absent, and the sound effect for the enemies when they take damage is still inferior to the Amiga versions. Mega Drive - There's a good degree of detail here in the graphics.
