I have some problems playing an ancient Amiga game called Chubby Gristle. It is a flick-screen platform game were you must collect different parts of a car.

Everytime when I enter the fourth screen with water at the bottom, Chubby floats around like a maniac and finally bursts. Then it's "Game Over" and you can start the whole game over again.
What did I do wrong? I am sure I have collected all objects in the other screens so that cannot be the cause of my "instant death".

Any help is appreciated.

Someone must have played this game

Is there really no one who can help me with Chubby Gristle? Has anyone ever tried to play this game on his Amiga (emulator)? I know it looks very crap at first sight but it has some playability depth. Well, sort of..

If you can sell it any better, I may be convinced to have a try

Chubby Gristle

I know which bit you mean now. Chubby just explodes for no reason...

Chubby soap

PJ BonoMan,
Chubby Gristle is worth a look if you are curious what an Amiga conversion of a Spectrum game would look like. It looks and plays so.. basic. The game has definitely some cult value.

Cody Jarrett,
Have you found a way to overcome this 'exploding' problem?
I have checked the Internet, but zillions of sites only have a cheat for infinite lives, not a walkthrough.

Chubby

Not yet - it's strange, as the game doesn't give you any clue as to why you have just died. And like you, I collected all the items on all the screens below. A manual would help.

Maybe the game is bugged. an original dump may be needed. is it a crack or part of a compilation, Tim?

Unhappy Chubby mystery

The version of Chubby Gristle I own is a crack and comes on a disc which also containsArmy Moves and some music mods. The Chubby-crack has an option for infinite lives. Without a cheat for infinite lives I would not even get past the second screen
However, the trainer does not work when you enter the most right screen Cody has provided. Chubby just seems to explode. I have searched for a manual for the game but without any luck.

Well, this may or may not be of any assistance, but here's some tips from one of the better Sinclair sites. I know it addresses the blowing up part, but not having played this part of the game, I didn't understand its application here.

Exclamation

It's the pipe... smoking is bad for chubby!

Make sure you DON'T collect the smoking pipe and you won't explode.

Wink Problems get solved at EAB... eventually.

At last, after forty months pending there is a possible solution for my problem with Chubby, although I cannot remember exactly anymore where it went wrong. Time really flies.

I have never played that game, but the hint might be useful one day !
I hope the board will never get cleaned up in the future since everyone can always look up cool info via search function

Does the age of thread matter? I like it when people use the search function.

Usually a question is already solved or forgotten in 3 years time, that where I'm getting at. Checking old threads is nice but reading them properly involves reading the date too. It isn't terribly bothering me anyway!

Heh, I didn't realise the date of the thread! I was searching Google for pages on Chubby Gristle on the Amiga and I got this. I couldn't resist replying.

Hope the tip works, I must have played that game throught 100 times when I was young... what a way to spend your youth!

I got that joke off another forum Burseg so I can't claim copyrights to it.

I'm wondering though why I haven't seen this thread before. I love this kind of games.
