As you may have guessed from the title, this game is about a little chappy called Murphy who has himself a turbo charged road digger so that he can bounce around.

Controls are simple, with left-right controlling his position across the screen and up-down controlling the height of his jumps. The game has two speed settings, though for some reason I found the slow setting is harder!

Not much more to be said really. Except it's rubbish, there is very little animation, sprite detection is bad and doesn't it remind you of Kosmic Kanga?

Overall Summary

Tedious bouncing game that might have looked good a few years ago. Then again, it might not.
