Although this game is adequate, I find it criminal that  they do not have increasing difficulty as each loop is completed. This is something that many American games had as standard from that era and earlier, they would have variety of difficulty settings  which gave the game longevity. Not the case in many British offerings/European.

For it's time, I really enjoyed this. But I couldn't play it often because if I recall correctly, this was a joystick only game, and I went through so many joysticks until I got my hands on a Cruiser, so I was limited to keys only.

Enjoyed watching this, and the companion video on the arcade game. I always have fond memories of Hunchback, as it was one of the first games I remember playing on my uncle's Spectrum. There's also a text adventure sequel as well, oddly.
