Boulder Dash - 30th Anniversary reviews and comments

Translated by

For the ancients like me it puts us in memory our Amiga and our Atari ST! For my grandson it's discovery and he loves it. Too bad that now for the big companies the quality graphics premium on fun and originality! It's not enough to make a good game. Glad to find Rockford and the world of Boulder Dash good that said, buy it during the STEAM balances, because it is a dear for a remake especially without the DLC.

Yes, it's Boulder Dash, what can you say about it? Many people have been upset about the Price, and that this Game already exists for Lau-but I can only say that I like to reward the Developers, because I just enjoy it, just as I enjoyed it back then (when I still Enjoyed it From Cassette to the Memory of the CPC464). I absolutely cannot comprehend the Common. It was clear what to expect here, or not?

Boulder Dash is Fun! Anyone who liked to play this before can hardly do anything wrong. But I only dealt with the Game for a short while and then looked into the Level Editor ... Since then, I have been building Boulder Dash Cards and regularly uploading them to the Workshop. To the Single Player I can say that the Game is Fun, but I don't like the time Limits, which are sometimes very tight, so much. But Time can be extended via Gold Bars that have been Excavated during the Game. I hats and that will certainly stay that way until the next Retro Classic comes around the Corner;-)

Product received for free honestly, the DLC shot at the exit to replay the original levels alone is the principle of avoiding this game taken from the mobile which, yet, is very loyal to the original product. Too bad he asseptise the few violence (before we exploded, now we turn on either-even by making "Ohoh" when one takes a rock in the figure). Also, unlocking worlds with safes cdontenant thousand and useless objects, unlocking power-ups breaking the rhythm of the game and forcing the cheat makes the experience really demotivating. What a pity!

Oh, yeah, those were still Times ... I first played boulder Dash on the Amiga 500 and spent hundreds of Hours doing it. And just like then, I can't get away from it today. Often copied, but never achieved, it is a wonderful time Eat.It offers the well-known Game Elements, collect Jewels, dodge Traps etc, but also some Reinventions.You can now move diagonally, there are Power-ups like Dynamite or Time freeze and you can Play Different Characters that also offer a Bonus. The Levels are divided into different Worlds and well staged. There are animated Backgrounds, 3D Elements, Hidden Treasures and Collectibles. Those who like Puzzles and Skill Games don't go wrong with Boulder Dash.
