Taito’s “Chack’n Pop” Joins the Arcade Archives on Nintendo Switch, PS4
Game publisher Hamster has announced that puzzle platformer Chack’n Pop is now available on Nintendo Switch and PS4 as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.
Originally released in arcades by Taito in 1983, Chack’n Pop puts players in control of Chack’n, a birdlike blob who must quickly traverse underground labyrinths and retrieve the hearts that have been stolen by the villainous “Monstas”. Fortunately, Chack’n can at least drop bombs to wipe out all of the Monstas that are hounding you. It’s almost like a cross between Pac-Man and Bomberman. Eh, not really, but sort of.
Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste.
Arcade Archives Chack’n Pop is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop.
