    It's easy to see this as an upscaled Gameboy game once you know that's what you're looking at. The lack of any background graphics and sparse environments makes sense now. I do think it could have benefited from being spiced up somehow for the more advanced platforms. It lacks that USP to raise it above the crowd as it is. It will be interesting to take a look at the later ports on the Gameboy Colour and Playstation.

    I read that initially it was being marketed under the tagline, "Alfred Chicken is a bit like cheese" and even the PR guys couldn't remember why! Fettuccine Alfredo (or Chicken Alfredo) is a cheesy, buttery pasta dish so that'll be it. I love the '90s games industry – anything goes. 😀
