Charlie the Chef, keeps all the ingredients locked away in the pantry, only letting them out when he wants to cook them!

Now this makes them jolly upset, let me tell you.

So! As soon as they can, the ingredients dash out of the pantry dragging all the sorts of nasties, found in the bottom of drawers and cupboards, with them, to escape, and run wild.

Poor old Charlie! he has to daze the ingredients with his flour bombs and knock them into the mixing bowl, because if they go into the dustbins they will be eaten by the bin monster, who doesn't care one little bit where he throws any of his rubbish.

Should any rubbish or nasties get into the cake mix then the 'ingredients needed' counter will change, and Charlie will have to work quicker and faster, if he's going to bake his cake.



LEFT Charlie will move left by using the 'Q' key.

RIGHT Charlie will move right by using the 'W' key.

DOWN Charlie will move down by using the 'E' key.

UP Charlie will move up by using the 'R' key.

FIRE Charlie will throw flour bags when the 'T' key is pressed.

PAUSE the game by using the CAP SHIFT key.
