This cat's got a hunch that Game Boy addicts are going to take a shine to Super Hunchback, a lighthearted and challenging game from Ocean.

The immensely horrible Halfenpounder has taken the incredibly lovely Esmerelda captive. Super Hunchback's the only one willing to "bust his hump" to rescue Esmerelda before she disappears into the slimy depths of Halfenpounder's castle...forever!

Good Looks

Ocean definitely gets a top grade for uniqueness of character, not to mention for their catchy tunes. Yeah, he's a bit on the lumpy side, but he's not ugly. In fact, graphically speaking, the whole shabang looks pretty sweet. There's an awesome animated sequence, too. It's guaranteed to make you flash those pearlys.

SH has a limited amount of time to forge his way through nine, maze-style Stages in Halfendpounder's castle. Mad and mangy creatures aren't what's troublesome about this less than humble abode. Swimming through moats, dodging cannon fire, swinging from ropes, and leaping across spiked pits are what's in store.

As SH is making those breezy (which translates into easy) jumps and turns, he can grab onto hunks of fruit and other good stuff that may send him to a secret bonus level, or two. If he's really swift, SH may be able to collect enough letters to spell out "EXTRA," which earns him a precious extra life.

Get Back

Beauty may not be Super Hunchback's claim to fame, but challenge is.

The constant jumping and dodging will keep your eyes and fingers working overtime, along with the absence of a continue feature. YUK! If you can hang with that, we strongly suggest you start hangin' around with Super Hunchback. He takes his lumps with style.

ProTips:

  • If you can let go of the rope when perfectly centered over the subterranean pits, you will land in it and it's filled with goodies.
  • Don't hesitate for moment in the third section of Stage One. If you do, you'll be flattened by an offscreen log.
  • Ride atop cannonballs to safety,or smack into danger if you aren't careful.
