HUNCHY II   1135 (Difficulty BB)

Just to be honest, I practiced levels 5 to 10 using Practice Mode (Difficulty switches set to A position and then Select button to skip earlier levels).

Do you remember Stay Frosty 2? I used Level Selector to choose and practice levels which are more difficult for me, and then get more familiar.

If you're dead set on not using emulation and only playing on original hardware then you might want to consider investing in a Harmony Cartridge. I've got a Harmony Encore for my setup that I use to compete every week and it makes everything super simple. Just download the ROM for the game being played each week, drag and drop it to an SD card, stick the SD card in your Harmony cart, then pop the Harmony cart in your Atari 2600, select the game you want to play from the built in menu, and away you go. :)

That said, my computer's hard drive died this weekend and I'm currently limited to accessing the internet from my tablet, so I have no way to get this week's game onto my Harmony cart and may not be able to compete this round unless I can get my computer fixed before Sunday.

Hmm... do you by chance own a Wii? If your computer isn't up to running Stella and a Harmony cart is out of your price range then a Wii is probably your next best option. They're quite easy (and free) to soft mod even for someone with zero prior experience and they can emulate all non-DCP+ Atari 2600 games really well. You can find more info on the Wii soft modding process here.

I'm new to this game

having to learn each level and build on as you go... feels similar to Stay Frosty.

I could do without the horrible walking and climbing sound effects, but otherwise a really good game.

Hunchey II - 370

 

found a way to play this with an online emulator and I am very gladI did, it is an amazing game, although I don't seem very good at it, but oh well, at least I can play it.
