Bump 'n' Burn
© 1994 Grandslam
The speed! The thrills! The spills! Glory goes to those who survive the
ultimate racing experience - The Bump N Burn Championships!
Staged on the racetracks and roads of Toonia`s seven kingdoms, the event is
a no-holds-barred rumble where the only rule is anything goes! Each of the
kingdoms sends it`s bravest driver to compete against the ruthless Count
Chaos, reigning champion and winner of all previous Bump N Burn
tournaments. He will stop at nothing to retain his unbeaten record.
Will you join the ranks of failed challengers or can you dethrone Count
Speed to succeed!
The standard version of Bump N Burn will run A500, A500+, A600, A1200 and
A2000 Amiga`s. 1 Megabyte of memory is required, if your Amiga has 1
Megabyte of CHIP memory (as found on 500+, 600 and 1200 machines), extra
sound effects will loaded.
The Amiga 1200 enhanced version will only run on A1200 and A4000 machines.
This is because of improved graphics that use more colours than a standard
Amiga can display.

You may choose the order in which you tackle each area of Toonia. You must
complete all areas to finish the game.
THE WAR TORN CITY - The home of Colonel Carnage, tanks trundle across the
road and aircraft drop bombs overhead. Huge craters scar the landscape and
barbed wire fences block the lanes. Above all, avoid the Mines!.
THE RACE TRACK - Built for speed, this is the domain of Mr. Fabulous. An
ideal test-bed for vehicle handling, the track has vast banked curves
filled with extra weaponry.
THE FROZEN FJORDS - Eric the Eskimo will feel at home here. Snowballs roll
down the road, hopping penguins latch onto your car and patches of ice make
the going very slippery indeed!.
THE FALLEN FOREST - Trees lie on the road and old cranes swing wildly out
of control. The narrow bridges make river crossing perilous. The Buck
Tooth Beaver Bros` should enjoy the advantage here.
THE HAUNTED GRAVEYARD - Frank N Steiner come from this part of Toonia.
Apart from the various ghouls and spectres, players must avoid the pagan
pumpkins and pools of gipper. Make sure you bring a pair of thick brown
CANDYWORLD - The coolest colour scheme in Toonia awaits visitors to Loretta
Lamour`s home town. Hairdryers blow you off course, fizzy bottle tops are
fired from all angles and bouncy popcorn try to halt your progress.
THE VOLCANO - Home of the Dodgy Dino`s, the Volcano is highly active.
Watch out for flying fireballs spewed from the Volcano`s fiery innards.
Prehistoric birds will try to pick up the unwary racer and drop them off
the mountain. Rickety bridges cross deep chasms, so don`t fall off!
Star tokens are deposited on certain parts of the course. Drive over them
to pick them up. Once collected, the star will change into a random weapon
or other useful item. This is displayed on the control panel. Pull back
on the joystick to activate the weapon. Push forward on the joystick to
fire a shot (if shots are collected).
SHOT - Supplies 5 shots capable of knocking other drivers off the road.
Each character has their own personalised shot weapon.

McChoke(ICON) in his vehicle upgrade emporium. Players may soup-up their
vehicles in exchange for money collected during the race (ICON 25)

one more section. Once the power bar is at maximum, no more upgrades if
that kind may be purchased.

awarded according to final race position. After all the areas are
completed, the contestant with the most points is declared Bump N Burn

his first ever defeat.......
HINTS AND TIPS
1. Use every devious, underhand and downright dodgy tactic that you can
(remember, it`s not cheating!!)
2. Remember that shot weapons must be activated by pulling back on the
joystick, then fired by pushing forward.
3. If captured by Prehistoric Birds, Ghost, Penguins or UFO`s, wiggle the
joystick left and right to escape.
4. If you fail to finish in the top four positions at the end of the race
and have to use a credit to continue, one section will be knocked off all
5. Beating the lap record earns extra cash!
6. If you see any flags on the course, collect them!
7. Make good use of the radar! It is extremely useful for stopping pursuing
8. Get close to the car in front and slipstream past.
