Don't go suggesting a Boulderdash is "Better" without getting Rockford's approval first!!

Nothing beats Boulderdash. NOTHING!!!!

Although, TBF, the recent BD games have been shit.

|edit|

That looks abolute crap! My RockRush game from twenty years ago looks better IMHO - https://dosgames.com/game/rockrush/

And XmasRush for you Festive folks - https://dosgames.com/game/rock-rush-xmas-edition/

Both playable and downloadable online and for free (with level editors too).

Maybe I'll do a clone of BD as a future project, maybe you'll approve, you never know!

In all seriousness, there's not really miuch you can do with a Boulderdash clone, other than add a few new elements and improve the graphics. Gameplay wise it's got to be the same, or it isn't BD. Which is exactly why the recent BD games are so crap - they removed the speed and risk element and added too much new stuff (and made the graphics awful - poor old Rockford doesn't even resemble a ghost of his former self nowadays) - lookee here - https://www.boulder-dash.com/deluxe/ He can now use a Jetpack FFS!!!!


I think eveyone should have a go at making a BD game tbh. The more, the merrier!

My game (The Need For Friction) already has a similar movement to BD, wouldn't take much to convert it.
