So since we're all snowed in (except for the southern hemisphere), now seems like a great time for Odyssey 2 playing. So why not get out Chief Chef and give it a spin. Timdu asked me to make this the game of the month, so I did. I have something planned for the next game of the month.

Here are the simple game play instructions for CHIEF CHEF:

You are Tom Atoze, the apprentice chef at the Chew 'n' Spew Restaurant. (Tom appears at the  the screen.)

Chuck Chesterfield, the Chief Chef, has gone crazy and has climbed up to the ceiling and has started to throw food at you!
The only catch is he demands that you get all four items he throws and avoid the duplicates!
Once you have caught a complete set of four items, you start again at a faster level.
How are your food catching skills? Are they enough to impress the Chief Chef?

SCORING:

2 points for every successful item caught:
 
2 for the onion
2 for the slice of cheese
2 for the tomato
2 for the lettuce head
 
and then when the fourth item is completed, a little sound plays , 2 additional points are awarded ( for getting all 4 items)
and the player then begins the next level where it is faster.

The game is over when you catch a duplicate food item.

Your current score appears on the left and the high score appears on the right.


And for those who need the binary ROM file of the game, please use this one:  ( file attached )    GOOD LUCK!

My son's scored, 1344.  Game usually got faster, but this time it did not increase.  We used rom posted above on C7051 multicart.

Used a custom controller to play, built just for this game.

1) After you play you have to press Reset button to play again. If you press Action button on joystick then chef does not move.  Would be great if pressing action button could start a new game.  
2) Sometimes when Restarting the game you start with a score.
3) After the game ends you sometimes get static on screen and hear it too.  Pressing Reset fixes it.
4) I was able to get game to play slow again for entire game.  Seems that when I get score of 90 or more then on the next play it does this "slow play" glitch.  

Is the real cart less buggy as this is a fun game.

Nice Controller Cheesy
Is action on the back. Maybe you can use it to play other games like Acrobats or Timelord.

The bug that you list as #1 has been fixed and corrected.
Now when you press the ACTION button, it starts a new game.
That version is only available on cartridge at this time.

Price is $25

Shipping is $6 US dollars (in the USA) and $13 US dollars for international

For more information, please visit our web site:

I hope you will support us and purchase a cartridge!

thank you,

Tim

As for bugs 2, 3, and 4 that you experienced in your list... I cannot confirm that they are fixed without sitting down and spending some serious time playing the game. I am going to ask some of the "power users / players" for help here because...

I could sit down and take some time, but I am working a full time job 8am - 5 pm, juggling family life, and trying to fulfill orders for MEAN SANTA, and preparing the materials for the next game release ( AARON THE AANT) which I have had to push back for a release date of February 2, 2017.
If only I did not have to sleep!

Has anyone else who owns the game cartridge experienced the bugs 2, 3, and 4 that grips03 lists in the post above?

thanks
