Description

The archetype of the Hunchback of Notre Dame really isn't terribly nuanced: he jumps around towers, ringing bells, rescuing Esmeralda and being generally physically unattractive. Here he does all of these things, in a more platform-oriented take than the original, clambering up dangling ropes as they rise and fall, avoiding environmental threats such as rabid bats, thrown hatchets and enormous grinding clockwork gears all in the pursuit of small bells strewn across each screen's platforms. Gathering all the bells permits you to advance higher up the tower, at the top of which the damsel in distress awaits your homely visage.

Hunchback II: Quasimodo's Revenge ZX Spectrum This is level 1. The object is to ring the bell at the top right, to do this you must jump arrows, dodge fireballs and avoid pitfalls.
Hunchback II: Quasimodo's Revenge ZX Spectrum Interesting way to climb a rope. Note how the bells on the lower level have fallen away. Eventually they will all go leaving a hole behind.
