I'm looking to download the game "Bumpy Arcade". I tried one place, but it didn't work. Any suggestions?
Thanx

Yup, it's hard to avoid this forum's sites! ;) Seems Google still has the old 21ct Oldies pages in its database.

But there are several working other results, even on the first page.

Google even still has some of the old html-parts of our site in their search results, seems like they don't update that often.

Concerning updates, they are better than most other search engines nevertheless. Lycos, for example, still has search results from tapuak.snoop.dk...

Either before or after Crosswinds. Anyway, it's at least two years ago and still in their index...

Thanx.
I checked up google "bumpy arcade" - that's how i found this site but under bumpy got an error. I tried downloading a few things, but got an unmanageable program.
But using "bumpy arcade download" finally found a good download.
One more question: On one site it suggested there was a predecessor to bumpy arcade called just "bumpy" but the download gave me a program bumpy.dsk which i have no idea what that is. Anyone have any ideas? Or another place to find this version of bumpy?

.dsk files are probably disk images. These could be either for another system than PC (usable via emulator) or (if it's a newer, big game) it could be a disk image usable to write a CD.

Since bumpy is older than bumpy arcade id go for the first option. But my question still stands: Has anyone heard of it, and have any idea where to download it?

You can find both Bumby and Bumby Arcade at http://agnostica.free.fr/romscpc.htm#b. These games are for the Amstrad CPC, so you'll need an emulator for that system in addition. I found a really easy guide to CPC-emulation at http://www.sean.co.uk/books/amstrad/emulator.shtm.
