Help Chaka live

Apr. 29, 2009by: Dave Davis

Any of you old-school gamers out there might get a kick (or a bad flashback) out of this LAND OF THE LOST tie-in called "Chakker".

Basically a riff on the classic "Frogger", the game puts players in control of friendly primate Chaka on a vertical mission to rescue the time-tossed Will Ferrell and his assistants. Considering the 80s cheese the movie is remaking, the game's design is appropriately retro.

There's also an iPhone game called CRYSTAL ADVENTURE, which you can grab at iTunes RIGHT HERE. Run, Chaka! You hairy little monkey-man.

Extra Tidbit: Which term for an additional in-game life extension was closer to your childhood gaming experiences: "1-UP", "extra man" or "free guy"?

"Considering the 80s cheese the movie is remaking" - Land of the Lost was 1974 and ran 3 years. Remake show was 1991. Just to let you know.

I always said "free man."

I was just distracted by the promise of a topless Amber Heard on the right. Will comment later.

This is kinda neat. I'll probably see this movie when it hits theaters.

Extra tidbit: I always used "1-UP" when talking about extra lives. Super Mario Bros. stuck that into my head for a long, long time

meh

I'm not watching this movie one way or another, but I still wish it was based on the Nickelodeon show, rather than the original. But since I wouldn't see it either way, it doesn't really matter to me. Cheers to whoever ends up liking it.

I know next to balls about the original Land of the Lost but I'm liking what I'm seeing for the update. The game was a good touch too.
