Dumpy and Bumpy Receive Nintendo Switch Release!

Puzzle adventure DUMPY & BUMPY slides on the NINTENDO SWITCH November 18th!

A Danger-Dodging & Brain-Busting Adventure!

Philadelphia--November 10, 2021 | Screenwave Media Games and Programancer are excited to announce the November 18, 2021 release of Dumpy & Bumpy. Join dinosaur-duo Dumpy & Bumpy in a puzzle adventure bursting with 80 charming but challenging levels to bite, blow up, and push through. Dive in as Dumpy, or bring on a bestie as Bumpy, to crack each level’s code and crush the evil Ghostlord. Make haste though, or the Ghost minions will waste...you!


Originally released May 27, 2021, on PC through the Steam platform, Dumpy & Bumpy is a puzzle adventure inspired by classic arcade titles such as Bubble Bobble, Adventures of Lolo, and Sokoban. Work alone or with a friend in 2P mode and figure out each level’s solution through means of biting, pushing, exploding, and/or a myriad of other unique mechanics. Dumpy & Bumpy also contains an additional 2P Battle Mode for endless player-on-player shenanigans!


  • Venture across 8 colorful worlds, each with 10 puzzling levels for you to solve
  • Experience a clever take on Japanese retro-classic puzzle games. Throw and bite blocks, dodge past danger, blow up bombs, breathe fire, teleport, or even play golf
  • Work as a team in 2P mode, or mess with each other, to master gimmicks and clear stages...
  • ... or duke it out in a separate VS battle mode!
  • Replay levels to improve your high score or beat the Pro time

About Programancer

Programancer is the Michigan-based game developer, artist, and programmer behind Dumpy & Bumpy. Dumpy & Bumpy was created from a mixture of COVID frustrations and childhood nostalgia tied to playing co-op games with family, such as Bubble Bobble and Mr. Driller. Programancer ended up developing a challenge outside of his comfort zone, as Dumpy & Bumpy is a game with a much brighter palette and cuter visuals than he is known for. Programancer's ultimate hope, with Dumpy & Bumpy, “is that people can have a fun retro co-op/vs experience with their siblings, significant others, family, friends, and anyone else they hope to spend time and bond with!”
