    Hunchy for Android's review

    Published: 2011-08-29, by Peter Warrior.

    A classic retro game brought back to Android

    • Retro style
    • Cool
    • Too challenging

    "Could you tell me how to get NotreDame?"

    Lately there are some developers specialized in bringing back old retro games. The nearly forgotten 8-bit Hunchback couldn't be an exception and here it is, brought by FisherSoft, who has not only taken good care of Hunchy, but also added a few levels. For those of you who haven't met Hunchy before, let's said that he has to rescue damsel Esmeralda running and jumping all over a castle full of traps and guards. Imagine Hunchy (1983) as an early prelude of the first Prince of Persia (1990), if you want it that way. Screenshots are quite illustrative, though.

    It'd be deeply appreciated that, as well that bringing Hunchy back, the developer had improved gameplay to make it smoother. Lack of scrolling can be really bothering and newbies would appreciate some kind of help when jumping to the ropes. The original animations are absolutely out of date: when Hunchy falls, he should face the ground at least!

    Well, that's it. If you played Hunchback back in the eighties, you shall give it a go. If not, there are a thousand better games around, all of them inspired by this old, pixelled and rusty Hunchy.

    Control the Hunchback Quasimodo, running and jumping to avoid obstacles, clear levels and rescue Esmerelda.

    Originally released in the 1980s, Hunchback was one of the first platform games. Hunchy for Android reproduces all the best features of this addictive game, and adds more tricky levels, making it one of the most challenging versions of the game.
