Published in Chewing Gum January/February 1985

The Hunch, by Jadis, is a game based on the arcade original. You have to get the Hunch from the left side of the screen to the right side. You can jump and move left or right to avoid various nasties such as bobbing spears, gliding arrows and holes in the brickwork. Each screen gets harder and there is a strict time limit on some of them.

It is quite a playable game but by no means brilliant. It is in Basic so it is not very fast or spectacular. I am sure it would appeal to someone who doesn't like their games too fast, but how about a compiled version for the rest of us, Jadis?
