Foreword by Mr Pink
Now that we've got adsl and permanent internet connection, i've been leaving my
laptop connecting to #atariscne all day.
Going back through the logs, i've picked out a selection of comments about "Chu
Chu Rocket" - lots of people seem to really like it, and i thought it would be
nice to share their views with everyone.
This is by no means a definite collection as our internet connection keeps
going down so i missed a lot in the first week, but it gives a fair reflection
of peoples feelings about the game.

my milan to my falcon :)
<JazHaz> Hi Pinky! Nice game! Can't sort out level 20 on puzzle mode though! :)
<Vido> hey mrpink :) ... chuchu rules :)
<_Paranoid> Hi MrPink - Thanks for an excellent version of Chu Chu Rocket.
<_MrPink_> para: thanks :-)
<_MrPink_> glad you like it!
<_Paranoid> MrPink - How couldn't i ? I already loved the DC version of it. :-)
<_Paranoid> MrPink - On the contrary, i love it. :-)
*** deun changes topic to 'chuchu at rg.atari.org.'
<deun> mrpink: chuchu is really nice, but it is so fast on falcon so that i
always lose :(
<SWE> chuchu just confirmed whats all about :)
<[vlG-aGo]> CHU CHU ROCKET :)
* _Adam_ is off for ChuChu
<_sts_> mr pink : chuchu rocket is amazing!
<_sts_> mr pink : I love to roll the demo and enjoy its likeness to the DC
<_sts_> mr pink : that's a very impressive bulk of work
<_sts_> my DC is lying just next to my STe and I'm not sure which one is
connected to my tele :)
* earx thinks chuchu rules
<_Paranoid> ChuChu Rocket! rocks. :-)
<partycle> paranoid: yep, very cool
<KephyWork> Yeeeeeah, i spent all my sunday morning playing Chu Chu.... !!!
<partycle> I spent an hour or so playing it last night
<KephyWork> but i think the easy world is the hardest..... the hard world is a
joke ! :)
<KephyWork> if someone found how to pass the level16/special world... :)
<_Adam_> Kephy: wait for mania world :-) your brain will turn into potato ;-)
<partycle> pink: cool. I just played chuchu rocket last night for an hour or
so, it's excellent
<SWE> party yes. addictive :)
<SWE> chuchu is my 2nd best multiplayer game :)
<earx> hi mrpink: chuuchuuu!
<earx> mrpink: really love the game, played it all morning and forgot the time
<earx> i gotta run to watch some intro now and ehm play some hard levels of
<KephyWork> MrPink, Chu Chu makes me mad ! :)))
<_MrPink_> hey kephy
<_MrPink_> it makes you mad?
<KephyWork> MrPink : yep for 2 reasons
<KephyWork> 1. It is so great !!!!!
<KephyWork> 2. the game has freezed when i was at level 16 /special world....
<KephyWork> so I need to re-do all ! :))))))))))))))))))
<Setok> there's no way chuchu could be as good as bugger
<partycle> ooh, I have to get bugger on the falcon..
<Curly> mrpink: i've play chuchu rocket in the meantime. 4p mode is bloody fast
on the Falcon, even if put into slow mode. Or am I just too slow? ;-)
<_sts_> mrp : we had a lot of fun with ChuChu rocket last night, playing the
game was really great
<earx> mrpink: btw, i look forward to playing chuchu with some beer tonight :)
<SWE> thanx god for ataris.. look at chuchu, nice and cool on STE!
<stimpy__> OK, I'll see if the 1MB version is OK, as I soon got adicted even
ins ingle player puzzle :) Great game (ok, not your idea... :)
<505> just downloaded chuchu today after having some troubles with
downloading... and i played for quite some time already until the "feed the
cat" level where one mouse was left always
<505> it is really fucking funny.. i love those noises by the mouses
<505> its your best game i think... very professional... but that could be
expected after you being a professional now too
<_MrPink_> hehe - yeah, sound fx are cool! i must admit, we stole them all from
<505> i hope there wont be probems due to copyrights
<_MrPink_> i hope not
<505> and the puzzle mode was tricky for me ... i phoned norman today and he
told me that the mouses always do turn right when reaching a wall.. now it
makes more sense to me
<_MrPink_> yes, once you have worked that out it becomes easier ...
<505> probably multiplayer mode i the funniest one though.. big chaos
<frost242> btw, chuchu rocks !!!
<frost242> I played it a little
<frost242> I like it very much
<_MrPink_> thank you!
<_MrPink_> it is a fun game!
<frost242> yes, very fun !
<Fraks> good job in CHuCHu ROcket man !
<DancDancR> btw, I hope I can find some time to test chu chu rocket
<DancDancR> edo told me it's a really good game
<no_esc> mrpink: Hi! Congratulations for your game! It is sooo sweet!
<no_esc> mrpink: Until now I played only the puzzle game. Nils told me that the
other modes are even more funny. I will try it.
<KephyWork> Mrpnk, no way, the game is great.... so congratulations again
