Hunchy II (Homebrew 2005)
Here's a first-rate homebrew game that contains 14 levels for completion. You are a hunchback who must gather bells to save the girl while avoiding missiles and medieval guards. The faster you complete each level--the higher your score. The first levels are easy, but the latter ones are difficult and you need to master all preceding levels so you have enough lives to figure out each new one. No bonus lives, and having to always start from the beginning is kind of frustrating. This game hits me as kind of a hybrid of Donkey Kong and Megaman and is one of the best platformers for the 2600.
