Bump 'n' Jump arcade

Recommended Posts

Hey guys !

 

Thinking about making an arcade makeover of Bump 'n' Jump..

By the way, when the buggy jumps was it always so glitchy ? or my memory fails ?

If by "glitchy" you mean parts of the car sprites flickering randomly while you jump, yeah, that's normal. Good old 4-sprites-per-scanline limit. :)

 

Personally, I don't think this game needs a makeover. But if you're into hacking this game, why not turn the player's car into KITT from Knight Rider? That'd be a hoot. :)

Just for fun, it's not easy to fit him in.. :P plus he needs a track to go into..

Hello,

 

while scribbling away, I branched out to a different direction.. the game now is called "Death Race 2000" :evil:

and it will feature all the old favorites (Frankenstein, Bull, Buzz Bomb, ...)

I will also try to edit various aspects of the game to fit the mood of the movie !

 

It is a work in progress, we'll see..

"Death Race 2000"

 

I like this better....

Plus a great home version is already available on the Intellivision. Coleco planed an Intellivision Expansion Module I believe.

interesting, I didn't know about Intellivision Death Race..

 

Back to the hack, since the movie cars are only five, I have to improvise for the remaining five !

One of them will definitely be a modified scull and crossbones truck from the original Bump 'n' Jump.

So, four more to figure out.. any suggestions are welcomed.

 

oh the protagonist will be Frankenstein's monster car :)

ok here is the closest I can get, reproducing the original 5 cars in glorious 16x16 pixels !

From left to right, we have: Lion, Machine Gun, Buzz Bomb, Bull, Monster !

 

I'm currently having problem changing the colors around.. but we'll come to that later.

..bummer

well never mind I will rearrange the cars to fit the existing colors :)

I guess then I must change the hero, can't have a red monster car.. but what you gonna do ?

 

I hoped at least we could have black as the second color to all sprites, some of the combinations available, are really ugly :(

Scratch that.. it was never going to work with these colors..

Maybe I'll return to my original idea for arcade perfect sprites, but that have to wait.

 

On to other things :)
