Chuck Rock - Manual
Chuck, a typical caveman slob, is slouched in his comfy stone chair,
glued to the T.V., drinking a can of his favorite beverage - root beer!
This seems like any other day in Chuck's life, even the Aerial bird is
getting bored with the same old thing and can't help nodding off.
Ophelia, Chuck's wife is going about her mundane daily chores, hanging
out yet another load of washing. However, unknown to her, the day is
about to change!
As Ophelia bends down to take some washing from her basket, the evil
Gary Gritter, a long-time admirer of hers, sneaks up behind her with
his club raised. Just as she hears something moving about behind her,
down comes the club with a THUD on the back of Ophelia's head.
Chuck, startled by the commotion outside, lifts his overweight frame from
the comfort of his chair to do some investigating. Then remembering
that all his clothes are in the wash he covers his pride with his
hands before venturing outside, only to find no Ophelia, just a
rumpled pile of washing and fresh tracks where something or someone
seems to have been dragged through the dirt.
A little bit embarrassed by his current state of dress, Chuck dashes
behind the nearest bush and emerges wearing the latest in designer
leaf and twig pants! Now Chuck begins his search for Ophelia...
Chuck in spite of his size, can walk, jump, swim and lift heavy rocks.
These rocks are very useful to Chuck, not only can they be thrown
at oncoming dinosaurs, but he can also use them as steps to get to
otherwise inaccessible areas. Only one rock can be carried at any one
time. This hinders Chuck's jumping ability, dependent upon the size
of the rocks.
When Chuck isn't carrying anything he can still use his huge stomach
to 'Belly-Butt` enemies or kick them out of his way with his
enormous size 14 feet.
When it comes to swimming, keep a close eye on Chuck's face on the
panel under the game screen. This shows how long Chuck can hold his
breath for underwater. When the face is blue his energy will start to
go down. Chuck can take a breath of air by popping his head out of the
