Platform: DOS
Year: 1995
Developer: CSW Group, Mad Data Entertainment Software

Bump It! is a cute Soko-Ban variant. Uniquely, the bear can collect honeypots, each of which allows him to lift one piece over his head and drop it into one direction. Every gamer gets a "savegame" from the start: You enter your name, choose whether to have a time limit (and bonus points!) or not, and play the 50 levels in any order.

All programming, graphics and audio were made by the Ukrainian CSW Group. According to artist Sergey Bulavenko, German company Mad Data asked them for a Soko-Ban variant within a given size and time. Mad Data co-designed some levels, wrote the manual, and is credited as a producer with PANique (the developer of Mad Mac from an unknown country).

This version was finished on July 25, 1995. Publisher bhv bundled it with Brix 4 Genius, Mad Mac 2 (audio by CSW), and Sergeant Slotte (completely by CSW). By Christmas Eve, it was being distributed by Tchibo Frisch-Röst Kaffee GmbH (a coffee chain). On December 22, CSW finished or abandoned an update called Bump & Bomp (DOS).

It's Superbump!


Throughout the entire game, an upbeat song and six sound effects play in mono.


To record one loop plus 10 seconds, the game was started on a Pentium 60 MHz with a Sound Blaster 16 CT1740. The New Game option was entered quickly, because the attract mode briefly pauses the music.

The filenames and files were extracted from BUMPIT.DAT using a custom tool.

No player currently supports the CSM format, but a MOD file was created by merely changing the signature to M.K. and adding a speed effect. However, Three instruments are tuned slightly different from the game.

If you choose PC-Speaker (slow computer) in the setup, digital audio is output at 12000 Hz. On everything else, it is 18000 Hz.

If you choose Sound Blaster Pro, its mixer is modified: master, voice and MIDI are set to their loudest, CD, line and microphone to their quietest, and everything else to their default.

In both the setup and game's options menu, you can toggle music and sound effects separately. In the game's volume menu, you can additionally adjust both volumes in 64 steps of 1.5625%
