Bumpy, also known as Pop-Up and Cool-Ball, is a 2D platforming video game created by Loriciels. It was released for the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC in 1989[1] and ported to PC in 1992.[2] The PC version is called 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.[citation needed]


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.
