    Default What arcade game was that?!?!

    So Nick Jr. has this new show called "Yo Gabba Gabba!" that my daughter likes to watch.

    They seem to focus on food a lot. I guess the writers have had problems with getting their kids to eat everything off their plate.

    Anyhoo....

    They have these cut scenes they do that are essentially 80's video games with one of the kid actors super imposed on the scene to make it look as if the kid is actually in the game.

    Most of the games are immediately recognizable, like Pitfall. One of the cut scenes jarred a memory and now I'm scrambling to find out what game it was because I had only seen the game in one arcade in my life and only for a short period of time.

    The game is a side scroller. You're in a car and the car jumps from building to building. Yes... the car doesn't drive on the road. It hops from building to building. In fact, if I remember correctly, the goal is to NOT ever land on the road.

    And no, it's not Bump n' Jump. BnJ is not a side scroller, nor are there any buildings to jump on.

    As someone whose childhood arcade experiences consisted of the parents saying ,"you're not allowed," I have no idea what the answer could be.

    Personally, I want me an original Gauntlet console I can put in the basement here. That was the only arcade game I ever got to play. Well, that and a cool billiards game with a rolling ball that controlled the cue

    I already searched KLOV. First place I looked actually, but none of my keywords turned up what I was looking for.

    That "City Connection" is sort of similar, but not quite.
