    I NEED more Bump n Jump.

    I've been playing the game at least once month for the last 5 or 6 years. I just LOVE this game. I play the MAME version and especially love it now because of the rotating LCD monitor I got about a year ago (because it's a vertical game).

    But what has happened to this lost relic? If the overrated SpyHunter can somehow get 3 sequels, why can't this gem?

    Whose with me? There has to be someone else here that shares my love for the game.

    DUDE!
    I totally rate Bump 'n Jump.

    I first encountered it in the 80s, at a dodgy little caravan park, where it's only working machine was Bump 'n Jump, in a cocktail cabinet.
    I fell in love.
    I emptied my pockets into that game.
    a DS version, bridging both screens, would be hotness.
    but no touch screen needed, please.

    edit: I suppose you could emulate it.
    is there a decent NES emu with DLDI support?

    No, but emu_kidid is supposedly working on adding DLDI support to nesDS. That said, Bump 'n' Jump wouldn't load for me in nesDS. It works in PocketNES and HVCA though.

    Okay, so we'll bring Bump n Jump to the DS. I think our next project should be Space Taxi!
