Punchy The Game
Each scene is set on a “Punch & Judy” stage. The naughty Mr. Punch has locked Judy in the “Punch and Judy” booth. You play as “Bobby” the policeman and you are tasked with saving Judy. You must make it across each stage avoiding the obstacles before the clock runs out. The obstacles that you face are: Rotten tomatoes, flying custard pies, giant pits and of course the naughty Punch himself.
It is a pretty simple game that is fun to play. The game never really ends, unless you lose all of your lives. Once you have finished the final stage and saved Judy, she is once again abducted by Punch and you must save her all over again.
The controls are simple and respond well. The difficulty factor good, it is not as tough as some of the other C16 games I have played. As you might expect though, some of the later stages become a little tricky. But with a bit of practice, you soon learn each stage, when exactly to jump and where exactly to jump. The graphics for “Punchy” are super cool. Everything is drawn well, the sprites look good and the animation is good. The audio is pretty good with a nice little melody playing once a stage is completed.
