Jacob, I know the buildings are the priority here, but are you using the score as a tie breaker in this game, or as a separate point system, like a bonus or something?

Seems that way, but just making sure.  Points can be leeched in this one.

LOL.  Yes there are 11, but after you complete level 11, you complete the entire building as well, and move to the next one.

I was first struck by the high production value of it. The sites and sounds and animations. Controls wonderfully, too.

I tend to have some issues with the controls in this one. Like yknow the usual InTV controller issues. You press up to go up thru a window and the guy goes left or right of the window. Grrrrrrr 🙄

Agreed, it is well done.  Can be frustrating at times because you can die so quickly and easily.  But it's a good game overall.

I love Bump n Jump. You’ll be hearing the soundtrack song in your sleep though. I can hear it now......

I actually had a much better game than the one I captured in my entry. Didn't have my phone with me upstairs, so I convinced myself that it wasn't a good enough score to warrant getting the camera 😂

 

But yeah, about the control issues... If Mattel had only just included some sort of a tactile feature to the disc (or the plastic rim around it) so that we could FEEL what "true" up really is without looking

Yes indeed! This and Burgertime were the ones I played quite a bit of back in the 80’s. Not to say that I’m good at them but enjoy them immensely.

1st B&B Entry - It's a 'fun' game, but kind of annoying how quick you can lose multiple lives. Like once you lose one, be ready to lose 4 more right quick..... 🥵

 

Case and point, I think I had 3 or 4 lives left at the bottom of Building 5. Couldn't even get up one level. Got smashed by everything.... 🙄

 

Building 4, Level 0, 11,450 points...

Brilliant Call Jacob.... Number of Buildings Cleared !!! 
 

Fun challenge !!! 
 

Gotta play it that way since point leeching can easily occur in this game.  🙂

So let's say we clear 4 buildings and get to the 6th level of building 5, can we report our score as 4.6?  May be an easy way to track the results.
