DescriptionHammer Boy is an arcade game that plays like a cross between Kaboom! and Whac-A-Mole.
Armed with a big hammer, your job is to prevent the American Indians from reaching the tower behind your fort by hitting them on the head and putting out the fires that are thrown from the side. That's really it to the game -- new levels bring different backgrounds (battleship, castle and space base) with corresponding enemies (pirates, knights and aliens), but essentially the same gameplay.
This game is based on the comic book hero.

DevelopmentThe C64 version's coder Pablo Toledo has admitted on http://www.lemon64.com/?game_id=1137 that he doesn't think much of the game, and seems to admit that it was a rush conversion done for the money - and he nearly didn't get that anyway.
Dark Amiga VersionThe Amiga version looks dark when compared to the Atari ST version because of a rushed conversion job. The authors used the ST palette values directly, which results in reduced brightness. This wasn't uncommon in Dinamic games - they made the same error in After the War.
