Important Note: This weeks competition is over and no futher scores will be accepted.

You're racing your BAJA BUGGER over a dangerous, treacherous road. But your opponents aren't just trying to win the race, they're trying to make it the last race you run. To stay alive, jump your BAJA BUGGER and land on top of your opponents.

Earn points by collecting flags, balloons and other prizes along the course. Watch out for PICK-UP TRUCKS and WEDGE CARS. They'll try to collide with you...and if they do, you're dead.

Fasten your seat belt and get ready for the wildest strip of road you've ever been crazy enough to drive.

The Manual

As always, you really should read the manual. In case you don't have the manual, AtariAge has a typed copy available online. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide any specific hints.

oyamafamily

  • DON'T SACRIFICE yourself before scoring 10K points, even you have 5 lives since the starting. You can accumulate the first extra life at 10K points in addition to 5 initial lives. Study the scores which will result in extra life.
  • The flags appear on the left and right side alternately. Occasionaly, the special items appear instead of flags: cherry, balloon, ice cream cone and Lollypop.
  • The maximum number of enemy cars which appear on the road is 3. BE CAREFUL: the enemy cars change their directions and speed randomly.
  • Don't try to complete each round quickly, because there are NO BONUS POINTS based on fastest time.
  • Here's my suggestion to train EXACT JUMPS from road to another road: Practice with the Left Difficulty A (Expert - Hard Jumping) to test your coordination and be prepared to play Rounds 4 to 9 on Regular Settings (Difficulty B on both sides). With Left Difficulty B (Easy Jumps), you DON'T need to jump exactly from road to another road on the first 3 Rounds.
  • BE PATIENT when the flags are missing to complete each round!
  • BE CAREFUL with the declivity (white road) and acclivity (dark road). On Rounds 3, 6 and 9, pay close attention: there are holes in the road. So, practice jumping over the hole at the right time.
  • Draw a map of 3 Roads:
    • Road 1 is for Rounds 1, 4 and 7;
    • Road 2 is for Rounds 2, 5 and 8;
    • Road 3 is for Rounds 3, 6 and 9.
  • On Rounds 7, 8, and 9, avoid collecting white flags when possible; else... the colored flags will reappear at the top of screen. It makes more difficult to complete these rounds. So, the KEY TIP is: practice more these later rounds.

Remember, you CAN'T jump while going in reverse (as in downwards on the screen.)

This game is weird for high scores. You could just stay in level 1. And the better I play the worse my score gets.

Yup I was right. Just tested my theory playing only the first level. Easily got over 70,000 on my first try but it's a cheap ass tactic. The real test for how good you are at this game is what level you can get to. I Often get to level 6 but it's tough because it's level 3 only you can't jump very well.

When I was a kid, I belonged to that Columbia House video game club and I remember seeing Up 'N Down in the catalog and I wanted it because of the cute car on the box (reminded me of Herbie). I'm not sure if it was a situation where my mother was going to buy me one gift or I only was allowed to buy one thing or what it was, but I remember having a choice between this game and Bryan Adams's LP Reckless and choosing the LP (which I still have). Boy did I regret that decision later. I ended up getting Up 'N Down on eBay, but I would have kept mine in better shape and would have had the box and manual. Oh well. I'm sure I would have been very disappointed in the graphics.

Beat all 9 levels and started over on level 1 and died on that level. You have to make sure not to touch the flags you already touched after level 6 or you'll have to touch them again.

Score 67,890

Seems like crushing cars and their drivers is the way to go...

I collect flags and solved a level, but doesn't mean much,
no bonus for solving a level or collecting all the flags???

I just smash cars and go forward...

Yesterday I got 71,650 just playing the first level without collecting flags. Not sure what's the correct way to play this game since beating levels fast gives you low scores but ignoring the flags feels like cheating, lol.

I got stuck on level 3 because I couldn't find the last flag again. Happens all the time with that level. At least I got good at that level. decent Score of 115,330 Note: sometimes flags disappear and never come back. Happens a lot on levels 3,6 and 9.
