I had almost forgotten about this game, and thanks to YOR I "rebooted" an old memory.
Yes, this game is old, 1983 was a long time ago, but the game holds well. It always reminds me of Jumping Jack, which is actually from the same year and plays similar and then Frogger, which is in fact quite similar to Bonkers, and was probably the inspiration for it, with a new set of clothes, of course. It's a bit too fast specially moving your character left and right, but the overall game is quite entertaining. The main problem is it gets extremely difficult after a short time of playing, but that can be a good thing if you like challenging games.
