Based on a classic theme, the player's job is to enact the part of Quasimodo and rescue the beautiful Esmerelda while avoiding the guards and fireballs, and having to jump over pits of fire.

Although the animation is jerky the program is well worth latching on to.

Enthusiasts for the popular amusement arcade game Hunchback will enjoy the version from Ocean Software. You are Quasimodo, the notorious Hunchback of Notre Dame, who in legend rang the bells of the famous cathedral. In the game you have to rescue your sweetheart Esmerelda, who is imprisoned in a tower on the cathedral battlements. You perform the selfless deed by leaping over fireballs, swinging on ropes and ringing the bells, pursued all the time by a tenacious French soldier.

Une chose est sûre, vous aurez toutes les peines du monde à atteindre votre bien aimée, car de nombreux périls vous menacent. Évidemment !

En un temps fort reculé de notre ère, vivait un bossu. Quasimodo possédait le courage d'un preux chevalier, l'âme d'un preux chevalier, mais n'en avait pas le physique ! Son cœur se mit à battre pour une belle princesse prisonnière d'un ignoble individu. Sa fragilité réveilla ses instincts protecteurs et il partit à sa conquête. Le bonheur ne dura pas longtemps, car l'ignoble individu profita d'un instant d'inattention de Quasimodo pour s'emparer de la princesse et l'enfermer dans le donjon des cloches. Le chemin pour parvenir jusqu'à sa belle amie semble infranchissable. Mais la colère de Quasimodo est telle qu'elle lui donne le courage d'affronter une fois de plus les dangers les plus fous.

At first playing Hunchback is fun and difficult, but the screens are made up of re-using the same elements in different combinations and eventually it gets visually boring.

The graphics are of a reasonable standard but the scrolling screen flickers. The sound capabilities of the machine have been totally ignored, apart from the odd beep or squeak. If you liked the arcade game, then this version will probably appeal to you. If you weren't a fan, then I'm afraid Superior Software's Hunchback won't convert you. The game is available now and costs £8.95.

Au total quinze tableaux. Le graphisme est soigné, mais Quasimodo est très lent. Classique.
