- 1 Player
The hunchback character was originally to be Robin Hood, hence the green costume and the game stages with arrows. After the artist who drew Robin Hood left the company, someone commented that the Robin Hood character, as drawn, looked like a hunchback
How to Play
On each stage, you must move the Hunch Back to the other side and ring the bell before a torch-carrying soldier, who climbs the wall, makes it all the way to the top. If the soldier reaches the top, he will try to burn the Hunch Back with his torch. If the Hunch Back rings the bell before the soldier scales the wall, a bonus score is rewarded.
Depending upon which stage you are on, the Hunch Back must jump over various objects like fireballs and arrows. He also must jump over empty gaps or gaps where there are soldiers, who have spears and strike them up and down. The Hunch Back must jump over the soldiers when their spears are down..
