Now I'll be honest here: I've heard of this game, but I've NEVER seen it... until now! I remember seeing it on the shelves back in our town's computer store, but I just couldn't force myself to buy it because I was put off by the cover. I'm not entirely sure what it was, but it just felt like a cheap and boring game.

30+ years later I stumble on the game in the Gamebase 64 database and decide to load it up. To my surprise, it's a nice little game - even if it is a total Hunchback rip-off! That aside, it's fun, looks colourful and plays just like Hunchback. I actually like it!

HOW WAS IT PLAYED?: I coded a quick levels skip that jumped the policeman to the far right of the screen. 

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: For 1983, this game contains a nice bundle of level screens. I would have been chuffed to have owned this one back in the day.

FINAL SAY: A surprise with the amount of level screens for a 1983 game!

RATING: 7 / 10
