Jump 'n Bump, a cute bunny game with blood, ported to the Wii. The original is maintained at [1]. This is a multiplayer game. Each player controls a fluffy bunny jumping around in a pleasant environment. The aim is simply to jump on the other bunnies to make them explode in a shower of blood and to increase your score. Fun for the whole family!

A note about the graphics

Jump 'n Bump runs at the silly resolution of 400x256, a ratio of 25:16. A scaleup option is present in the code to make it run at 800x512, a mode the Wii does not support. I'm not entirely sure what to do with this, so for now I've left it as is, with a huge black border around it. If you can't stand the cuteness anymore, you can look a bit at the black border, representing vileness and death.

It might also support an USB keyboard, not sure what the SDL defaults are. I'll check when I get my hands on one.


The source is available on github. However, the Makefile is not perfect and I possibly made some tweaks to my build environment. Feel free to ask questions or post notes (or patches!) about the build process. There's also loads of code from the other (non-Wii) versions around. Don't get sidetracked. :)
