Shortly after that, Bump 'n Jump started spending less and less time in my Atari. Eventually, my skills (or at least my memory of the tracks) diminished to the point where it was a success just to make it through the first set of seasons. And then, one day, the Atari got pushed aside for newer systems. Still, the time I had making my way through this game has never left my mind. It was simple (bump cars, jump water), but challenging and addictive...which was more than enough to keep me entertained for quite some time.
There's really no scenery to speak of, but the stages are divided into seasons, each with its own color scheme. Bump N Jump's graphics are minimal, but the animation is fast and smooth, and the game is just plain fun. The developers wisely included an option to turn that irritating "happy" background music off (via the black and white switch), and I recommend you do that. Bump N Jump doesn't look like much, but its pick-up-and-play quality is hard to resist. There's only one variation, but it will have you hitting the reset button again and again.
Overall, this is a game worth owning if you enjoyed the original.
Spielerisch bietet Bump 'n' Jump also genug Abwechslung. Doch wie sieht es mit der Technik aus? Grafisch liegt der Titel erwartungsgemäß den Versionen vom Intellivision und Colecovision zurück. Viele, sich bewegende Sprites, die sich flackerfrei auf dem Bildschirm tummeln und das Ganze auch in einer hohen Spielgeschwindigkeit, jedoch ist auch die Gesamtzahl der Fahrzeuge auf dem Bildschirm etwas geschrumpft Auch die Hintergrundmelodie klingt vergnügt aus den Lautsprechern. Die Steuerung ist durch den Joystick sehr direkt und spaßig.
I really like Bump ‘n’ Jump but, for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, not as much as I used to. Perhaps the graphics could have been better, even within the VCS’ limited capabilities. Still very much recommended.
