Chase the Chuck Wagon is a game released for the Atari 2600. It was given out, by the Purina Dog Food company, by sending in proofs of purchase.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The object of the first maze screen is to move Chuckie, the dog, through the maze and escape through the opening at the top of the screen directly below the chuckwagon. If you successfully escape from the maze, you will enter the reward screen, which requires you wait until the dog dish is even with Chuckie and then press the joystick fire button to allow Chuckie to move to the dish and eat. This will score an additional 100 points. If you miss, no points will be awarded and you will simply go ahead to the next maze screen.

In each maze screen, there will be objects appearing on the screen and bouncing from side to side. These should be avoided. if they hit Chuckie, he will be frozen temporarily which will decrease your score. Also, in each maze, there is a dogcatcher who is chasing Chuckie. If he catches Chuckie, you will lose a life. You only have three to start with, so be careful.
