Game Review

Boulder Dash is a popular strategy/maze game originally created by Peter Liepa and Chris Gray for Atari 8-bit and released by First Star Software in 1984.

The game was ported to several platforms including Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, Apple II, Atari 2600, BBC Micro, ColecoVision, Intellivision, MSX, NES, ZX Spectrum and many others. Boulder Dash was so successful to be ported also on arcade. An arcade game was infact released in 1985. It's one of the few cases where a home computer game is ported to arcade, usually it's the contrary.

You are Rockford and you have to dig through the caves searching for diamonds and avoiding monsters. There are 16 levesl to be completed, with 5 different difficulty settings.

Boulder Dash received very positive reviews and it's considered one of the best games ever released on the Commodore 64.
