Bug Byte have a habit of releasing old Atari games, so I'm not quite sure whether this fits into that category or not. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt seeing as I've never heard of it before.


It's egg-hatching time in the henhouse and your job as 'Super Rooster' is to protect the eggs from marauding rats and hedgehogs. You then wait for the eggs to hatch, usher the young chicks to safety, and Bob's your auntie!

If only it was that simple. Yes, a Rooster's life is not a happy one and you must find time between chores to gobble worms and grain in order to keep your strength up. And pity help you if you make a hash of things cause that's when the 'missus' puts in an appearance and belts you over the head with a rolling pin. It gives a whole new meaning to the word 'henpecked'!!

CHICKEN CHASE is a nice simple, uncomplicated, game with reasonable sound and graphics plus a sense of humour. It's in machine code too which is a step in the right direction for Bug Byte. Worth looking at.
