This boulderdash type game has more than 1000 levels! Depending on which level set you select, there are lots of exciting things to see like monsters, diamonds, and explosives. This game includes the original levels for various versions of boulderdash and sokoban. In my opinion, the game interface is somewhat annoying, but other than that this game is quite impressive.

Rocks 'n' Boulders is a VERY addictive game. It's so much fun getting all the gems. Some of them are concealed in walls, or trapped in rocks, and you have to somehow find a way to get them. You will get killed a million times by explosions, bugs, rolling stones, and falling rocks. You will trap yourself more times than you care to remember. Yet you will always come back for more. Basic gameplay is easy to control, as you just use the Arrow keys, however, restarting a level if you get yourself trapped is quite fiddly. It's easier just to quit the game, then start again. All the bugs and critters are so adorable, but they will kill you if they touch you. The 'hint' envelope on each level is a nice touch, but hard to read. Sound effects are effective, and each level has different music to listen to. Be warned though, some levels are insanely hard!
