Blitz PD - Jumpin' Jack

Does anyone have the Blitz PD 1-4 disks that came with Blitz Basic 2 please? I used to have them years ago but haven't found them since and there was a game on there I used to play a lot and want to play again.

Cheers

Louk

yes please wizard1

Chip it has disks 1-3 apparently, but missing disk 4... I think that's the one that has the game I want (jumpin jack flash or similar title).

Can't find it anywhere but used to play it lots in 96-98

Really doubt that the game Louk is talking about is Jumping Jack'Son, for many reasons:
  • Jumping Jack'son is a commercial game, not PD.
  • Not made with Blitz Basic 2.
  • Very easy to find.

Can you describe this game a little; what type / genre, graphics, any details etc?

If I Google "jumping jack flash amiga game pd" then I just get hits about "Jumping Jack'son" or "Transplant" as it contains those words i.e:

... Transplant (1992)(Jumping Jack Flash)(PD).zip

Here you go Louk, enjoy

Oh, I assumed the game was released in 1992 by going off the "Jumpin.Doc.info" file... the rest of the files were reset to 1980.

No problem

...I also renamed the thread from "Blitz PD" --> "Blitz PD - Jumpin' Jack" to make it easier for people also searching for this game.

Just as an FYI; the game is actually on Aminet here: http://aminet.net/package/game/jump/JumpingJack

Looks like it was possibly released in 1995, or at least that's when it was uploaded to Aminet.

...guess this is where Aladin got the files from to put into a "generic" WHDLoad.

For a moment i thought was talking at a remake of the ZX Spectrum Imagine game - another one that might need a remake by the way

There a few other "Jumpman Junior" remakes on the Amiga:

... Jumpman Junior
... Jumpman Deluxe

Probably worth reading this thread though: Jumpman Junior - Problem.
