Description of BC's Quest for Tires

A moderately popular game on the C64 that went unnoticed on the PC, Sierra's BC's Quest for Tires is an average early platform game based on B.C., a popular Johnny Hart comic strip.

You are BC (yes, that's your name), caveman comic hero on a mission: rescue your girlfriend. Gameplay is very simple: riding a monocycle, you must dodge trees, jump over holes, and avoid other obstacles while staying on your tires.

Fun for a while, but gets repetitive quite quickly as there's not enough gameplay variation or types of obstacles to hold anyone's interest for long. Too bad the witticisms of the comic strip are all but lost in this computer license.

Good one, quite advanced for its time.

I have this for my C64 mini, it's a fun one, if short. My kids are going to play it too!

I can't play this game at all: BC is always jumping, as if an "auto-fire" feature was on and fire/jump button was continuosly pressed.
I've tried this on 3 different PC with PCem (2 Linux and 1 Windows), with Dosbox on Linux and playing online here on myabandonware (with embedded Dosbox) and this weird jumping issue was always present in all my tests.
Does anyone have an idea about this?

Nice graphics game play is about what you expected back in the 80's. Fairly short game though, I remember the first time I completed it I expected more. BC is looking for "the cute chick" (that's actually the female characters name from the comics) not tires.

I remember this on the c64. great memories! Yeh it's repetitive, but back then, we'd also play Pitfall for 4 hours straight.

There is no executable file to start, only that CGAFIX.COM, but that's just a patch! Would you correct this, please?
