The Game

The object of the game is to climb to the top of each level as quickly as possible while avoiding the hazards. There are four levels and if you complete all four you will go back to the first one but there will be some extra 'nasties'.

You will be given an extra life the first time you complete level 3. Extra points will be awarded if you collect the heiress's belongings on the way up (handbag, umbrella, etc). It is possible to jump up and grab the hammers and then for a limited length of time you can smash the fire balls, barrels and bowls of custard.

You can not climb ladders of jump gaps with the hammer. You must complete each level before your bonus runs out or you will die of exhaustion.

Good luck. You will need it.

Game Controls

Z - Left, X - Right, : - Up, / - Down, RETURN - Jump

The game may be either controlled from a joystick (use the fire button to jump) or from the keyboard.
