Jump Bug is a scrolling platform shooter developed by Alpha Denshi under contract for Hoei/Coreland,[2] and published in arcades by Sega in Japan and Rock-Ola in North America in 1981.[1] It was the first platform game to include smooth horizontal and vertical scrolling.

Jump Bug was ported to the Emerson Arcadia and the Leisure Vision system.

Gameplay[edit]

The player controls a constantly bouncing car while driving through various environments including a city, pyramid, and underwater. The height of the jump and speed of a fall can be controlled with the joystick. The player can shoot various enemies that appear. Points are gained by collecting treasure, killing enemies and jumping on clouds.[3]
