It might be over six years old, but Boulderdash is still as fresh as ever. Data East have improved the graphics and added a neat front end, but have retained the same maps and gameplay that made the C64 version one of the classic games of all time. It's massively addictive, calling on arcade skills and fiendish puzzle-solving in a way that draws you totally into the game. You shout with frustration as a wrong move results in Rockford being buried under a pile of boulders, then yell victoriously when you work out how to get those last few diamonds and finish the screen! Boulderdash is one of the greatest games ever written - if you want a summer of glorious play, treat yourself to a copy as soon as possible.

The Video Game Critic
The action is pretty intense but there's subtle strategy involved, and you'll often need to initiate an avalanche in order to gain access to a new area. Boulderdash has aged quite well, and includes a nice password save and a fine soundtrack.

Joystick (French)
Ce jeu ne se juge pas à sa réalisation, qui est tout de même en plein dans le ton, mais à sa jouabilité exemplaire. Son apparence simpliste est trompeuse car ce jeu est souvent une véritable épreuve pour les nerfs et les cellules grises. Une simple partie suffit à accrocher un joueur pour longtemps. Dès que la magie fait son effet il devient très difficile de résister à l'appel de l'aventure et du mystère.

He may be an an old man but Rockford's looking better than ever. Smart graphics, masses of levels and a challenge bigger than, er, a very big thing.

Boulder Dash gehört zur absoluten Spitze im Geschicklichkeitsbereich, Seit niunmehr 13 Jahren begeistert es auf Game Boy, NES, in der Spielhalle und auf einigen betagten Heimcomputern jung und alt. Deshalb ist auch die NES-Version ein echter Klassiker, den Ihr Euch bei Eurem nächsten Flohmarktstreifzug nicht entgehen lassen solltet.

Die Neuausrichtung des altehrwürdigen Klassiker aus goldenen Zeiten wurde mit den damals neuen technischen Möglichkeiten des NES vorgenommen: Butterweiches Scrolling, knuffige Charakter und das gekonnte Puzzelprinzip machen dabei auch heute noch einen Heidenspaß. Wäre noch eine Speicheroption für den High-Score vorhanden, ich hätte dieses Mal gar nichts zu meckern.

Niewątpliwą zaletą tej gry jest zmuszanie grającego do myślenia, ponieważ często wyjście z danej komnaty okupić trzeba ostrym główkowaniem. Ponadto gra w wersji konsolowej ma znośną muzykę i istnieje możliwość zagrania z kolegą (na 2 graczy).

All Game Guide
The bottom line on Boulder Dash is that it is a well-crafted, well-executed, thinking man's action game. Strategy is important, but if you don't have the reflexes to back it up, you will be doomed to failure. You must act quickly and think even faster. If this sentence describes you, then Boulder Dash is your perfect game.
