Bumpy (video game)
|Bumpy's Arcade Fantasy|
Bumpy, also known as Pop-Up and Cool-Ball, is a 2D platforming video game created by Loriciels. It was released in 1989 for ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, MSX and DOS. A remake of the game was created in 1992 with the name Bumpy's Arcade Fantasy.
Loriciels wanted a 16-bit game so they handed it over to Infogrames who made Pop-up in 1991. The loading screen and graphics changed but the music sound effects and gameplay remained the same.
The player controls a ball, trying to get it to the exit by bouncing it off walls and various types of platforms. While most platforms are perfectly harmless, some have additional qualities, such as being destructible, thereby granting access to other parts of the screen. Some platforms are on fire, which will turn out lethal unless the player has picked up a water droplet in advance.
