Chuck Rock II: Son of Chuck, called just Chuck Rock II (チャックロックII) in Japan, is the sequel to Chuck Rock and stars Chuck's six month old son who must rescue his kidnapped father. It was released for the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Mega-CD, Sega Game Gear, Sega Master System, Amiga and Amiga CD32 between 1993 and 1994.

Gameplay

C is for jumping, B is for attacking with Chuck Jr.'s club and A is for standing on the club. Instead of carrying objects like his father, Chuck Jr. can move them by attacking with the club. Other changes and additions include mounts (small dinosaurs) and bonus stages.

History

It appears some code and graphics (such as small cubic rocks) were also used for Wonder Dog

Versions

The Sega Mega-CD version differs slightly from Sega Mega Drive version, not only by featuring animated cutscenes and redbook audio, but also by using the systems sprite scaling ability.
