Intellivision HSC Season 13 - Game 11 - Bump 'N' Jump

Recommended Posts

Bump 'N' Jump: Defensive Driving Edition would be a lot more fun if there was more bumping. The bonus feels like a insane trophy that I just have to get. Luckily, I just did 😅  I think I made it pretty far into the second race but lost all my cars before completing it for another bonus 😕 This might be it for me. If I play any more, it'll be bumpin' and jumpin' all the way.

 

Bump 'N' Jump: 51,424

Well damn. I finally got around to playing this, for a little bit anyway. I broke 9,000 points, but didn't take a picture because I got it on my first try and didn't think anything of it. Never was able to crack it again. Doh.

You guys know you can jump from the far left or right of the track and come back on the opposite side? You need to be going pretty fast, and you don't want to do it when the road gets all zig-zaggy because it can make it harder to land safely. But yeah, it's actually quite useful sometimes for clearing a bunch of cars without smashing any of them.

Nice score... And I say that meaning you are playing it the way it 'SHOULD' be played smashing everything in site. Because this game gives a 50,000 point bonus for NOT smashing any cars it has ruined the game... Next time we play this here we should have the normal game as is, but also play a 7 pt bonus game where highest score under 50k wins the bonus round and all the scores under get 6, 5, 4 etc. If you hit 50k you are disqualified for the bonus game.... You smashed a ton of cars as it should be.... 👍

I like that. And I did read in this thread about the insane 50k bonus. Tried that approach a few times but decided it would be a long time before I cleared the first course without jamming anyone.

 

Plus I didn't really love playing it that way. Sometimes I'd get 2/3 of the way before crashing someone, but at that point your score is going to be lame because you don't have enough time to smash many vehicles.

 

So that's how I'm playing it 😊

 

EDIT: I averaged 21 crashes in season one and two, and then whatever else I managed in season 3.

 

EDIT 2: The other thing I'd add is that I find it satisfying to smash cars. Especially several cars in a row... Or cause a chain reaction crash. Basically, I just personally find it more enjoyable to play it that way.

Did not know that, but that seems pretty risky considering you can hit the side of the roadway and die easily.

If you're going full speed it's really not that hard, even with the road at it's widest.

 

EDIT: Essentially, it's the same thing as jumping across the water, except you just keep holding left or right until you're back on the road. As long as you're going the right speed, you're almost as guaranteed to make it back.

Well I tend to slow down a bit. I was able to clear 4 roadways without smashing anyone, so that worked for me. Didn’t feel the need to try another way. But this is interesting to know!

Yeah, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just something else that's possible within the logic of the game. May or may not be useful to you 😊

Frog Bog definitely turned into the more active of the two.  Only so much Avoid-n-Jump one can take before even fixed arc Frog Bog is attractive by comparison.  :)

My FINAL BNJ Score Update: I finally got thru 3 stages of Anti Bump N Jump. It would have been ALOT funner if there wasn't a 50k bonus to NOT smash anything. I might play a few more games just to crush everything I can and not care about the 50k bonus to see what score I can get that way.... 👍

 

161,440

I'm still playing that way. Going to try to post one more score tomorrow cresting 30k. After that, I'm about to get heavily into Frog Bog D&T mode.

I played about 7 or 8 games this past weekend where I tried to smash everything I could (Meaning I didn't try for the 50k bonus). The highest score I got was 16,576. Hats off to you guys scoring 20k and above cuz it's NOT easy... 👍

 

One more thing, playing the game with a smash everything mentality is ALOT funner.... 😁

 

16,576
