Benny Hill's Madcap Chase is a ZX Spectrum videogame featuring Benny Hill and loosely based on his Thames TV show. It was programmed by Don Priestley and published by DKTronics in 1985.[2] The thin plot involves Benny deciding to help his neighbours by completing a number of tasks for them.


Crash, a ZX Spectrum gaming magazine, gave Benny Hill's Madcap Chase a positive review and awarded it 78%. Amongst the features the reviewer's liked were the large graphics which avoided attribute clash, and the sense of humour with one reviewer stating that they "[loved] it when Benny hit something or the lady chasing him had a fit". The game was described as "playable" and "addictive" although there were concerns about its long-term appeal.[3]

Rick Robson, writing in Your Sinclair magazine was less positive, awarding it a score of 6/10, stating that "True Hill fans will lament the absence of Hills Angels and the risky jokes but if you prefer being chased to chaste, this is the one for you, poor soul".[4]
