What makes Boulder Dash such a hit for me is that it's so addictive. In all honesty I can say this is the best game, to date, for the Spectrum. Which isn't bad going since a week ago I would've said it wasn't really Spectrum fodder.
According to Front Runner, Boulder Dash has been described as "one of the finest examples of Spectrum programming ever". Balderdash! Slow and jerky movement dog Rockford's every step making it difficult to pass through each cave within the time limit specified.
Although there are many features in the game including four interactive puzzles and five difficulty levels to each of the 16 caves your excitement can quickly turn to frustration when time and time again, Rockford is bombarded by boulders.
