RGB High Score Battle! - Week 69 & 70: Bump 'n' Jump

Site is updated! Here’s our current week details:

WEEK 69 & 70
Game: Bump ‘n’ Jump
Platform(s): Arcade
Challenge Type: High Score
Game Details: Full Game
When: Jan 4th 2021 - Jan 17th, 2021
Chosen By: harborline_765

I’ve updated the website with the new game, let’s get bumping!

Good luck everyone, please submit your scores via screenshot or video by replying directly to this post!


  1. Competitions last two weeks, close on Sunday night @ midnight.
  2. Post screenshots in this thread as proof.
  3. The winner from the previous week chooses the next game to play.
  4. You cannot choose twice in a row. 2nd place will choose if someone wins two weeks in a row.
  5. If there’s a tie, the person that submitted the high score first gets to choose.
  6. Games must be high score compatible (think “arcade style scores” like Pac-Man, or Spy Hunter, not Super Mario).
  7. Emulation is okay (MAME is often the best for high scores).
  8. No save state manipulation (pausing to take a break is fine though).
  9. Submit scores as soon as you get them! To keep the competition rolling and fair, do not hold on until the last moment to submit.

Points will be awarded for the entrants, based on the position finished for the week. This is to encourage wider participation, and the points will be posted each week as well as on the website.

1st: 10 points
2nd: 7 points
3rd: 5 points
4th: 3 points
5th: 2 points
Any honest attempt: 1 point

Overall, we should keep it simple. This is just a good time, not a crazy official high score competition! Game plays should ideally be short and fun so people that can’t invest hours into this can still compete. Obviously we are working on a trust based system here, so don’t ruin it for the others!

Here’s a simple website I made to keep track of the competition.

Wow, that was quick, thanks for posting this!

If anyone is having trouble extending their score check out this wiki page - it’s (literally) game changing. But only after you’ve really thought you know the game inside out, of course! https://strategywiki.org/wiki/Bump_‘n’_Jump/Walkthrough


Owned this game on the ColecoVision as a kid and played it lots. I think I tried once in the arcade when I was a kid and remembering it was totally different. I’ll give it a go in MAME first and see how I do before I check out the link you posted. Thanks!

Default settings on the Arcade Archives version seem to be:

  • Lives: 3
  • Extend: 30,000
  • Continue: No
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Screen Inversion: No

Changing any of these settings seems to exclude high scores on the leaderboards

Okay thanks. We’ll make sure that’s the settings for the arcade emulation

I told myself I wasnt gonna sleep until I got one 50k bonus run and I did. When you get near the end and have a perfect run the CPU cars try super hard to commit suicide.

I still need to submit my score, played a round yesterday but I was pretty rusty and couldn’t clear the first area without destroying another car!

Edit: Will post my score later today!

Here it is!

Congrats harborline you’re the winner this week! Unfortunate we didn’t get a better turnout for this one.

@MikeRotch what game would you like to choose for next battle?

Oh it’s my turn again?

Since you picked Outrun, and it ran pretty good on the Saturn emulator. I was thinking Afterburner on the Saturn too.

Let’s do that.

Okay cool, I’ll get it all set up tonight!

Just realized that After Burner wasn’t released on the Saturn, only After Burner II. Would you like to do that one?

Yes, please.
