CHARLIE II

Manual

This page gives a short description of how to play Charlie II, how the controls work and what the different items are for.


Charlie II - Level 1

How to play

  • The shareware version of CHARLIE II contains six levels, of which two are hidden (indicated with the question marks). The objective of each level is to collect coins and diamonds and then find an exit. Some levels have a secret exit which leads to a hidden level.

    From the OPTIONS menu, you can select the difficulty: EASY, NORMAL or HARD. To complete a level, you must collect at least the following percentage of coins and diamonds, which varies per difficulty:

      Difficulty Required percentage of coins and diamonds
      EASY
      45%
      NORMAL
      60%
      HARD
      75%

    Because the amount of items is different in each level, just keep collecting them until you see the message "Find the exit!". If you leave a level without the required percentage of coins and diamonds, you will have to retry it.

    The hearts at the top left indicate Charlie's health. The number of hearts at the beginning depends on the selected difficulty. A super heart is hidden somewhere in most of the levels.

    Just like in the original Charlie the Duck game, Charlie can beat most of his enemies by jumping on top of them, but some can only be defeated using a shield. Items are hidden in the yellow crates.

    In each level, you can find the letters to spell the name "CHARLIE". If you find them all, Charlie receives an extra life.

    Each level has a check point. After touching it, you can start there if Charlie loses a life. However, if you exit the game and start again, you will always have to start at the beginning of the level.

    When you start playing, you have to select file 1, 2 or 3. Your progress is automatically saved in this file. Normally, you can't play levels you have completed earlier, but after completing the entire game (complete version), you may choose any level to play. Only after reaching 100% for every single level, you may add your total score (of all the levels together) to the high scores!
