    Basic Gameplay Summary
    ----------------------
            Chuck Rock is a basic platforming game in the vein of Super Mario, split
    up into four worlds with two to four levels each.
    
            Chuck Rock lacks the same platforming depth that the Mario 2D series
    has, however - each level merely consists of crossing through the usually
    straightforward levels, killing off enemies with your basic kicking attack or
    throwing a rock at them. In the last area of each world, Chuck will face a
    boss battle, where action will switch up from the regular platforming.
    
            Although ostensibly, there is a points system where points are gathered
    by grabbing fruit and killing enemies, there is little usage of it except for
    bragging rights.
    
            The only thing to really note about this game is that Chuck can pick up
    rocks and what vaguely appear to be bushes by using the Down + B button
    combination. Chuck can throw these at enemies to kill them or drop them down as
    a small stepladder, and can reuse these for the most part (you will
    occassionally have to throw a rock in a swamp or pool of lava to cross it
    unharmed).
    
    
    Items
    -----
    
    Heart - Gives Chuck a small fraction of his life back
    
    Pig's Head - Gives 1000 points, the most valuable points item in the game

    [WALK]
    
    
    World One, Level One
    --------------------
            Take a look at the tree in the background at the start. You should see a
    vague outline of a fang-shaped branch. Do not jump under these types of trees.
    Instead, walk past the tree. Wait for a bird to come, then jump up and hit it
    with the B button.
    
            Jump onto the nearby cliff, to grab a points item. Slay the enemy here,
    then jump onto the next platform for a heart, which will recover your life if
    you got hit earlier.
    
            Walk to your left, and press down plus the B button, next to the very
    first tree on the lower ground. Your avatar will pick up a grass bush. Walk
    right, and avoid the nuts being thrown out of the trees. At the end, drop the
    bush down on the ground next to the cliff wall, then pick up the rock using the
    down plus B button combination again. Jump onto the bush, then over the cliff
    wall. Drop the boulder, then jump onto the high platform to your left for a
    heart and a pigs head, which will give you a lot of points.
    
            Walk right on the higher ground now, and jumped onto a small island
    platform. Make sure to avoid touching the swamp, as this will damage your
    character. take out several enemies on the next stretch of land, and make sure
    to grab the heart from underneath the tree. Hop onto the flower petal, and wait
    for it to take you across the swamp.
    
            Leap off the flower, then continue right across progressively higher
    ground until you get onto a long stretch of land. Continue right to finish the
    level.
    
    
    World One, Level Two
    --------------------
            Take out the enemy nearby right away. Walk forward, pick up the boulder,
    then throw it at the bird enemy. Eliminate another foe, then fall down the side
    of your platform. head up right killing off several enemies on the way. When you
    see a bird flying out from the right side of the screen,turn around and start
    jumping left and up the various island platforms. At the left top-most platform,
    examine the bird for it to activate. Jump into its embrace, and wait for it to
    carry you across part of the level. Drop down, head right and kill another
    enemy, and grab yourself a heart piece.
    
            Fall down to the ground, then look around for a bush to grab. Head right
    and you should see another object with an arrow cursor pointing at it. This is a
    catapult for all intents and purposes. Stand on the left side, then throw the
    Bush at the right side to launch yourself to the high ground. Proceed right to
    an enemy and grab a pigs head for some points. Continue right from here to
    finish up the level.
    
    
    World One, Level Three
    ----------------------
            Exterminate a couple of foes to start up the level, then continue right
    and avoid the enemy rolling in from the right. Jump onto the nearby platform to
    your left for some points items, then proceed right again, eliminating some
    enemies as you go along. Once you come to the swamp, grab a rock and throw it in
    the middle. Jump across the rock before it sinks into the swamp to the opposite
    side.
    
            Grab an item, kill an enemy, then jump onto the flower petal to get
    across the swamp. Finish off another enemy, then take the lower ground passage
    to grab yourself a pig's head. Move back around to get onto higher ground, and
    head out the top to finish the level.
    
    
    World One, Level Four
    ---------------------
            Proceed right and grab a bush off the ground. Stand on the right
    catapult, and throw the bush on the right side to launch yourself up to a pig's
    head item. Fall back down, then take the bush to the left catapult and launch
    yourself up the left side. Jump up a couple times, then take a running leap of
    faith to the right. Move up and around to the top of the left side for a heart
    piece, then head right onto a longer stretch of ground.
    
            Move right and take out an enemy, then obtain a pig's head. Drop down
    carefully to avoid landing on the bird, then proceed left. Pick up a rock at the
    end, then turn around and continue right. Throw the rock into the bushy area,
    and jump across it to safety. Continue on, grabbing a heart piece, and slaying a
    couple more enemies, until you come to a catapult. pick up the nearby bush, and
    use it to propel yourself up. Loop around the island platforms clockwise and
    then proceed right at the top until you come to a rhino boss.
    
    
    Boss: Rhino
    -----------
            Wait for the rhinoceros to charge left for the first time, then go and
    pick up the bush lying on the ground after he has gone back to the right. When
    it starts to move left again, throw the bush once he begins to approach you to
    stun him. Quickly jump left onto the higher ground again, as he will continue to
    go left until he gets to the end before returning right. Pick up the bush again
    and throw it at him when he charges to the left side again. Repeat as necessary
    until he is finally finished.
    
    
    World Two, Level One
    --------------------
            Start off by going right and killing the duck foe, they continue on past
    the rope ladder thing and slay another enemy. Proceed right again and pick up a
    boulder to throw at the enemy moving up and down. Jump up another couple of
    platforms to reach the right side while watching go for some more enemies. Once
    you get past another rope ladder, jump up the ladder by utilizing a nearby rock
    to your right. Jump left up and around the island platforms to grab yourself a
    heart piece, then continue up and left to kill another floating enemy. Walk left
    again to grab a heart piece, then unfurl a piece of rope and jump into a niche
    in the wall to your left for a pig's head.
    
            Backtrack all the way back to where the roof ladder was, then use the
    boulder to jump up onto the right platform. Jump to the right for a pig's head,
    then continue on up the top side for a heart and another pig's head. Fall down
    to the right to slay a couple of enemies along the ground, then walk out the
    right side to finish the level.
    
    
    World Two, Level Two
    --------------------
            Quickly kill the two enemies at the start, then walk past two mirror-
    like objects in the background. Grab a heart piece, then slay another duck and
    walk right. Fall down and obtain a pig's head, then head left to obtain a
    boulder. Continue right on the top ledge, then jump onto the smaller platform.
    Throw the border into the lava, and jump across the rock to get to the other
    side safely.
    
            Eliminate the enemy, then continue across the lava for another pig's
    head. Proceed right again and finish off a couple more foes, then continue again
    for a heart piece. Jump up a couple of ledges, then grab yourself a bush. Use it
    on the nearby catapult to launch yourself up. From the rope ladder, head right
    through a swarm of enemies to come a boss fight.
    
    
    Boss: Walrus
    ------------
            Quickly jump onto the top platform at the beginning of the battle. Wait
    for the walrus to jump onto the left side, then drop to the ground. Once the
    walrus comes back down, go forth and kick it to damage and stun it. Quickly
    retreat a few steps. If it follows you by crawling, then move towards it and
    kick it again before once more retreating. If it leaps at you, however, quickly
    use the down button to crouch. When it is on the other side of your avatar
    character, turn around to kick it again, and once more retreat, this time to the
    opposite end. Repeat kicking and crouching up until the walrus finally dies.
    
    
    World Three, Level One
    ----------------------
            Proceed from the right to kick a couple of enemies, then grab yourself a
    boulder off the ground. Continue on right, using the rock to break several foes
    into submission. After clearing out the corridor, you should eventually come to
    a cliff. Drop the rock here and jump up onto the higher ground, then use the
    tusks to launch yourself up into the sky.
    
            Once you get onto the top ledges, head left to grab yourself a pig's
    head and a heart, then return to the right. Pick up some points as you head down
    and right along several thin stretches of land, eliminating a few more enemies
    along the way, until you finally hit the end of the level.
    
    
    World Three, Level Two
    ----------------------
            Quickly grab a heart from right underneath Chuck's starting position,
    then use the boulder nearby to leap up a high ledge. Walk right until you come o
    some animal tusks again, and use them to propel yourself up high. Journey around
    the platforms clockwise, slaying a couple of monsters at the top end. Continue
    right along the top for a pig's head, then drop down to the ground level from
    here.
    
            Make your way eastward along several floating islands, then reverse
    direction as you continue to climb, grabbing a heart along your way. Make sure
    you time your jump well at the end, then head right for a second pig's head for
    some more points. Drop down from here, and proceed right for a heart's piece.
    Take the top platform and drop down at the end for another boss battle.
    
    
    Boss: Sabretooth
    ----------------
            Ugh, this boss is sickeningly easy to fight (apparently in most
    versions, you are supposed to have a rock to throw at it, but this fight seems
    to be scaled down). Hop down to where it is, and kick it repeatedly. It will
    very slowly move forward as it is stunned. As soon as it begins to leap, quickly
    crouch. It will jump back into its original position after about a half second,
    leaving you enough time to stand up again and kick it some more.
    
    
    World Four, Level One
    ---------------------
            Start off the last world by going right, kicking enemies off-screen,
    until you spot a pig's head. Take it, then head up across the top level of
    walkways, using the hand-like object as solid ground. Continue right,
    eliminating more monsters as you go along, obtaining another pig's head and a
    heart piece on the way. At the end of the passageway, use the large trampoline
    bag to jump up onto the right cliff.
    
            From there, head right, slaying more enemies. Take the pig's head and
    then head right to finish off the penultimate level.
    
    
    World Four, Level Two
    ---------------------
            Walk along and defeat a couple of enemies through some handy kicking,
    then pick up a heart piece from the hole in the ground. Continue right again,
    and grab yourself a pig's head, followed by another heart in a second hole in
    the ground. Proceed right again along a linear path until you come to a pair of
    pig's heads, after which you will face off against the final boss.
    
    
    Boss: T-Rex
    -----------
            Quickly hop onto the first platform to your left so that you are about
    at mid-level with the T-Rex boss. Once it approaches, jump and kick out at it to
    stun it and push it back very slightly. Move back on the ledge until it
    approaches again, then repeat Chuck's kicking motion. Continue to redo these
    same few steps a couple more times to eliminate the T-Rex.

            Other than that, considering this FAQ is for an obscure old game, if you
    have any other obscure old games that you do not play anymore, consider sending
    them to me (I will even pay the shipping cost!). I write FAQs for plenty of
    obscure old games with no FAQs, and having a physical copy of the game (and even
    better, a manual) is superior to not. You can email me if interested at
