TI-99/4A High Score Competition

May 2021 Game of the Month

Junkman Junior

I have a feeling the music will drive us all crazy, but that’s what a volume knob is for.   Looks similar to the famous Commodore 64 Title Jumpman Junior.   If you are Commodore 64 nerd, also check out the game “Wizard” that is similar to Jumpman Junior.   It was my little sister’s favorite video game for many years.

 Good Luck! junkmanC.BIN

  • OLD CS1 changed the title to High Score Competition (May: Junkman Junior)

1560 Sorry, no screenshot, I don't think I could reproduce that if pressed for proof. |:) I suck at ladder/jumper games in general. Must be my joystick. Yeah, I'm sure of it! 8)

 

The manual states Difficulty 1 is wicked fast, while 9 is naptime slow. Wicked sense of humor there. :grin:

Yeah, I feel like this one does take time, to master, too.  Each stage is different, and kind of needs to be "learned".  The sheer variety they offer is pretty great, though. 

 

I imagine some folks would be familiar with all that via the game's "official" (Jumpman) iterations, though. 

 

Never played those and this wasn't one of the DBT carts I owned.  So I'm really just learning it now.

Looks to me like our high scores for May are:

 

Junkman Junior (Databiotics):

Pixelpedant: 8900
Count9929A: 7475
jwild: 6875
Tetlee: 3450
jblenke: 2700
Ed in SoDak: 1560

 

I'll try to have a game pick for June out by end of day.

 

Junkman Junior was a really good game.
