Maybe... I know he is credited for making the graphics for Phuk the World. However, noticed that some of these graphics were also used in the Dizzy series of Charlie Chimp. And Father Tuck (see below) has some graphics from Charlie Chimp and Phuk the World. So can it be that this is example graphics included with the Reality package? (Father Tuck is created by another team).

Some examples:

The underground levels in Phuk the World uses same tiles as the first screens in Charlie Chimp and the Treasure of Tutankhamun.

Boxes, the houses, the rats have been reused in Father Tuck.

Father Tuck was reviewed in readers games section in Amiga Format Issue #90:

Not as good as the Charlie games.. but question is... is it good enough to be added to HOL?

I dont know but I thought Ashley was credited for the graphics in Reality.
Who wrote this engine is still not 100% clear to me as I thought it was Brian Bell but Mike Carter was credited for coding Phuck the world and I think in that game there is something about sending off to receive the Source.

Part of the source is on Aminet and although the games are ok - there not as good as Dizzy - with some work a good Dizzy game could be made.

Yeah, seems Brian is the coder of Reality and Ashley did the graphics for it.

Not sure if Phuk the World is created in Reality though. Checked the file structure and it does not look like a Reality game to me. I think he used AMOS and used some graphics from Reality. Mike Carter is on YouTube so we can always ask...

This is what he commented on my video:

Interesting fact: all the characters you help in the game are actually people from Braunton school in North Devon. Congratulations on solving all the puzzles. I wouldn't have remembered all of them myself after 22 years!
.. so he had a prostitute and a whore in his school?

So, what about these ones ?

1) Charlie Chimp and the Stolen Crown Jewels
2) Charlie Chimp and the City of Atlantis

They should be added to HOL as Missing In Action ?

Good and bad news... I found the game I was looking for. But it turned out it was not an Charlie Chimp game!

The game was Desperation and already have an entry in HOL. Both are created using the Reality The Ultimate Software Construction Kit and Desperation uses some graphics from the Charlie Chimp games. However, Desperation is almost not playable because of all bugs and glitches (just try jump over the water on first screen). Even Father Tuck that was posted before is a better game than this.

So the search for the missing games continues..
