    MGL 28 - Game 2 ~ Bump n Jump ~ [FINISHED]

    Watch your landing!

    MGL 28 Game 2 ~ Bump n Jump



    Nominated by gamers: John73 and RMacauley

    ROM: bnj

    Game Story:
    Join "Jumpin' John" as he goes cruisin' up the road bumping, jumping, and smashing cars. Aside from the cars, you must avoid the sides of the road, breaks in the road which are usually over water, and rocks in the road which can sometimes be dumped by certain vehicles. Each level is based on a season Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter except the first level which seems to have no name. When you finish a level, you will pull up to a gas pump that has an icon showing the next level. A flowering tree shows Spring is coming up, a life preserver indicates Summer, a tree with no leaves says Fall is next, and a snowman means Winter is on the way.

    Score Submissions:
    Please make a new post for each score you post, with your score as the first line of your post, along with a screen shot showing your score and initials.
    This game finishes Sunday 19 June 2016, 7pm Sydney time, Australia.

    Please make sure your settings are as above. No continues are allowed when submitting a score and must be played from the beginning of the game. No cheats allowed!

    GAME 2 ... Traffic chaos



    Final Results ...



    Congratulations to John73 for winning Game 2.

    Yeah baby

    I was thinking today that if this got selected then I would pretty much play exclusively on MAME and see if I can take down my MAME record.

    I'm assuming brubber is OK. I actually had a 50K run so it's worth a post (at least to me). I want to say my PB is around 200K, but for the life of me I don't recall how I played enough to get that score.

    no prizes for who nominated this then.... damn, I should have nominated Dr Micro

    I do like this game though, but I've never managed more than 5 no hit levels.

    Yes brubber is OK. How come you can't play bnj?

    Well it's easy now, you've got 17 days to work it out again, and then double your score ... time for you to jump ...

    I could not readily locate bnj and already had brubber. bnj is a clone of brubber no? Anyway, I'll look around some more for bnj. I don't suspect I'll have too much of a go on this one as I find it crazy frustrating. No matter what I do the cars come at me. If I jump, the cars come at me. If I don't jump, the cars come at me. If I speed up, slow down... well, the cars come at me.

    I do recall reading a guide or run down from @John73 at some point in the past (few years ago or so). It was thorough and well written, though when I tried to put the suggestions in place... the cars ran into me.

    What version of MAME are you using? I just posted on TG issues I'm having with the BNJ ROM using MAME .150.

    BRUBBER is actually the original ROM, BNJ is a clone - but as it was released as BNJ in the USA that is why TG accepts it for their record keeping AFAIK.

    One of these days I'll write a guide to playing it - it's very hard to put into words though. I'm not sure what it is, I find this game easy to play to an extent. Barra tried explaining to me how to play Galaga better, but bugger me if I can do it. I've watched him play, and watched what he was explaining to do - but the bullets in Galaga just follow me regardless and I for the life of me can not replicate what he is telling me to do - the same issue you seem to have with BNJ. One of the mysteries of life I guess.

    No problems with that. One hand behind the back while I play this. I hope you don't want video proof of my score though, because I doubt you'll want to see what I'm using to hit the jump button with HINT: Viagra is your friend.

    ... the cars ran into me.
    Seems to me your joystick doesn't work. Did you notice you couldn't move your car!
