Default [Megaten] Dschump! / Jump!

Hey Guys,

I visit abandonia now for years and were so happy, when I saw this sub-Forum.
There are 2 games, which I played in my childhood but were never able to find again. I already asked in serveral Forums and searched it for hours in google.
So here is the first one:

The game ran on DOS on the PC of my father. I played it somewhen in the 90s. You had a birdview and were controlling a blue ball, which constantly jumped.
You had a start-point and had to reach the goal. The plattform tha ball was jumping on, was a kind of a wooden way and underneath was water. The game scrolled from top down.
On the wooden way there were several action-plattforms. Like wormholes and direction changer and so on.

The sound was 8 or 16 bit i guess, but I don't remeber it clearly.

You can't save the game, but you got passwords to jump direct to a specific level.

Maybe it helps, maybe it confuses :
I thought its had something with "Dolphin" in its name or maybe the company which programmed it was called something with "Dolphin". But actually it didn't helped me, when I already tried to search it.

It would be so cool, if anybody is able to help me!
Thank you,

Not sure if this is what you mean, but the game you described sounds a little like Bounce! on C64...so maybe also on DOS?

Damn, actually now that I reread your post, it's definitely not that game. But does the top-down view look like the picture above?

Seems also interesting, but sadly it isn't the one I searched for.
The one I search was more colourful and you really had an birdsview. So not from half-behind or something.

...maybe I can draw an example in paint later. ;D

Seems right, aye? It's on Mobygames as "Jump!"...guess it could use more details.

Bit of an odd name, but it's nice to see something out of Africa.

Thank you Megaten! That's it.

The only thing, which struggles me. That I remeber the "map" looked a bit different. (Like I wrote with the wooden planks and the water below.) Do you by chance, if there is a newer version or an update. Maybe just a new "skin"?

But thank you for finding it!
