Jump 'n Bump is a 1998 freeware MS-DOS platform video game by Brainchild Design.

Description[edit]

Jump 'n Bump has no plot, other than that it involves up to 4 rabbits in multiplayer deathmatch: Dott, Jiffy, Fizz, and Mijji, trying to hop onto each other's heads to squish each other and score a point, while sending gibs flying everywhere. The rabbits are controlled by players on the same computer, using the keyboard, mouse, and/or joystick.

History[edit]

Jump 'n Bump was written C and Assembly language by Brainchild Design in 1998. The graphics were made with Deluxe Paint 2 and Paint Shop Pro 5. The Mod music was made with Fast Tracker 2. Although the players' scores are tracked, the game continues indefinitely until it is ended by the players.

In 1999 the source code was released as Emailware like public domain.[1] The game has since been ported to a number of other operating systems and platforms, with the release of a SDL version.

The game proved to be addictive and had several fan sites on the web, with dedicated players designing levels of their own and posting them for all to use.

Brainchild Design has since become inactive. Their website currently refers to Bitbliss Studios for more games.
