Mit Bump ‘n Jump liefert Mattel fürs Intellivision-System eine Cassette, an der man sich nicht satt spielen kann. Mir standen leider nur wenige Spielstunden zur Verfügung. Soviel stand danach fest: Dieses Programm muß ich haben! Abwechslung, Grafik, Action — alles stimmt. Und so etwas ist bekanntlich selten! Einwände, von wegen der „Förderung von Aggressionen“? Nicht doch,— dann müßte jedes Autocrash verboten werden. Ein Bildschirmspaß nicht nur für Autofans!

I also like how Bump N Jump encourages you to be reckless to rack up the big points; it makes the action all the more addicting. If there's a flaw, it may be those cheap "oil slicks" which cause you to explore on contact. Nevertheless, if you're collecting games for the Intellivision, this one should be near the top of your list.

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.

Bump N Jump is fun and addictive. The graphics are only fair, but the animation is silky smooth. Just be sure to turn that "happy" background music off.
Insomma, Bump 'n' Jump, cari lettori, è un titolo da provare assolutamente. Nonostante qualche difettuccio grafico e un po' di ripetitività, risulta comunque un buon prodotto che promette tanto sano divertimento. Il gameplay risulta veramente solido, nonché eccelso; peccato dunque per quegli elementi che potevano essere sfruttati maggiormente e con più cura. Pertanto non mi resta che consigliarvelo. E' uno di quei titoli che ci fa capire anche oggi, a distanza di anni ed anni, che il divertimento sta alla base di tutto.

Bump 'N' Jump is a lot of fun. It is easy to play but difficult to complete.

Overall, this is a game worth owning if you enjoyed the original.

Though the graphics are unpretentious, each of the cars can easily be identified. Quite a few cars can fill the screen at once without any slowdown or flicker present anywhere. Hitting top speed really makes the game fly by adding a little bit of nausea to the proceedings. To keep this speed going the entire game, the backgrounds are quite un-elaborate and just change colors as the game goes on. Oh, and while the sound effects won't win any awards, that damn theme song will be in your head for days.
Spielerisch bietet Bump 'n' Jump also genug Abwechslung. Doch wie sieht es mit der Technik aus? Grafisch setzt man die Messlatte schon mal sehr hoch. Viele sich bewegende Sprites die sich flackerfrei auf dem Bildschirm tummeln und das Ganze auch in einer hohen Spielgeschwindigkeit. Auch die Hintergrundmelodie klingt vergnügt aus den Lautsprechern. Einzig die Steuerung ist durch die Steuerscheibe etwas schwieriger ausgefallen als bei anderen Konsolenumsetzungen. Allerdings hat man sich hier nach kurzer Zeit schon eingelebt.

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.

If a look and feel perspective isn't as important to you then you might very well regard this game as one of the best. More of you are probably more bound to recognize this game, however, as a racer that had a catchy gameplay dynamic but ultimately fell short of being anything more than a passing memory. Spy Hunter, for example, took similar gameplay dynamics and wrapped it around a more attractive package. Look at how much more successful that game was. That's a true testament to this game's playability.

Here's a simple but entertaining little driving game that was popular in the arcades of the early 80's. You control a jumping car on a vertically-scrolling road, bumping other cars into guardrails or landing on them for points. Be sure to keep an eye out for rapidly-approaching gaps in the road that you'll need to jump over. Bump N Jump's graphics are colorful, with changing scenery that includes a bridge, city, and suburbs. A pleasant background tune plays throughout the game. It's not very intense, but Bump N Jump provides simple arcade enjoyment.
