Boulder Dash präsentiert sich für die C-64-Verhältnisse mit einer einfachen, aber charmanten grafischen Gestaltung. Rockford ähnelt ein wenig einer Ameise, die einzelnen Levels unterscheiden sich nur farblich voneinander. Musikalisch verhält es sich ähnlich: die einfache, aber schöne Titelmusik vermittelt ein typisches Boulder Dash-Feeling, das ständige Diamantengeplinker lässt einen so schnell nicht wieder los. Dies ist ein Spiel, das die Spielgeschichte mitschrieb und das jeder kennen sollte.
Mêlant habilement arcade et réflexion, Boulder Dash a su s'imposer en proposant un concept simple mais diablement accrocheur qui, malgré les années, ne perd rien de son charme. De quoi réconcilier les accros de la technologie moderne avec le rétrogaming.
Boulder Dash is one of the ugliest, oldest, most out-of-date games to hit the Virtual Console yet. But good game design never gets old, and the fun to be had in these visually underwhelming caves and mazes still feels as fresh as it did in 1984. If you're a fan of puzzlers, be encouraged that this is a solid investment of five of your digital dollars. Because though it doesn't look like much, Boulder Dash rocks.
