    Ladybug "JUMP! SUCKER" A review of B. C.'s Quest for Tires for the Commodore 64

    If you had a Commodore 64, you probably played, or at least heard of the game: B. C.'s Quest for Tires

    This was a very fun and fast paced game, some might say addicting.

    I've posted a review of it in the articles section:

    -----------------------------------------

    Intro

    Based on a Sunday comic strip called B.C. by John Hart, B.C.s quest for tires is a fun and funny, fast-paced game.

    This game won numerous awards including:

    Critic's Choice Award - Best game for youngsters (Family Computing)
    Arkie Award - Most humorous Video/Computer Game (Electronic Games)
    Colecovision Game of the Year (Video Game Update)
    Best Use of Graphics and Sound in a Video Game (Billboard)

    Story

    The second is a foresty area that has logs you gotta jump over, and trees with branches that you have to avoid by ducking. All jumps and ducks require careful timing to clear the obstacle. Failing to clear the obstacle will cause you to lose balance and also a life (or a wheel, rather).

    One of my favorite games. It was very addictive, but I agree with you that it was a bit too short. There was a sequel to it (can't remember the game) which I liked more.
