An instant real-time multiplayer-only keyboard-crowding (or network) classic, this game pits up to four human-operated cute fuzzy widdle bunnies against each other for one goal only: lagomorphic cranial domination.
Against a pastoral Warner Bros. backdrop (or any of over a hundred fan-made levels!) these rabbits re-enact 2D platform Joust glories minus the lava, eggs and ostriches; in short, the players pursue each other -- now hunting, now hunted, the tables turned at the blink of an eye -- aiming to exploit variable special landscape features of slippery ice, delaying water and elevating springboards to their advantage.
Points are scored by jumping on other bunnies' heads, to great (and gory) effect; a running tally of head-squishings is kept, with flattened players continually re-spawning.
Jump n Bump is a simple platform game for from two to four players. Each player controls a bunny, and has controls to walk the bunny left and right, or jump. The only goal is to jump atop of the other bunnies, which explode in a huge red mass of gore as you accomplish this task.
There's a great contrast between the bloody nature of this game and the cute presentation. The bitmap graphics are very nice, and the happy background music has a cool oldskool flavour in it. The few sound effects are perfect, especially the smack! which fanfares the explosion.
As the idea of the game is very simple, it wouldn't be a wonder if this sort of game would begin to feel very boring in a relatively short time. Jump n Bump avoids this. The gameplay is, well, quirky. The rabbits have inertia in just the right quantities which retains the feeling of player's absolute control over the bunny, but still causes it to be just that little bit inaccurate - this results in fun unpredictableness. And although only one level comes with the game, it's very well designed, and there are many additional levels available from the official game page.
This is an excellent game, fun with two players, hectic with three and utterly chaotic with four. Recommended to boot!
