Retro Dschump! - A charming Atari XL/XE Bounder clone entered into the ABBUC Software Contest 2022

A lot of people who had an Amstrad CPC, Amstrad PCW, ZX Spectrum, MSX or Commodore 64 remember playing the game Bounder; a game released in 1985 by Gremlin Graphics in which the player navigates a variety of courses as a bouncing tennis ball. In fact one such person by the name of Peter Hinz seems to remember it, as we've just been told by Saberman, that Peter together with Miker has shown off a new Bounder inspiration for the Atari XL/XE called Retro Dschump!

If you've ever played that classic game Bounder, then you know what to expect with this game. But if you haven't, all you need to do is to rotate your ball like character across the many tiles to reach the end goal to win the game. Just be aware however this wont be an easy task, as not only do the arrow tiles  change your direction and sometimes in the wrong way, but one wrong bounce and you'll be falling off the tiles into the depths below. So yes if you love playing Bounder, you'll probably love playing Retro Dschump! when it gets a public release outside of the competition.
