- When you get to the second level, you can't jump on to the rope the way you normally would in e.g. Pitfall. Don't move right, just press jump and you are on the rope! :) Same thing happens on the end of that screen, if you try to jump on the bell you end up on the rope again. This *IS* the correct behaviour, as odd it seems. Or rather, this is the behaviour of a real PCB. Stu

- If you turn while jumping, hunchback will be garbled: 1st part of hunchback gets flipped in frame 1, 2nd part of him gets flipped in frame 2. The garbled Hunchback is normal behaviour of the original arcade machine. The trick we used to do was to get hunch back to jump just in front of the bell and cause him to touch the bell in the garbled state, as kids we used to call this a "spazed" hunchback (yes I know not politically correct!). fred decoma
