Description

This is a rocks'n'diamonds style game. Play in six different worlds (as a explorer, cook, doctor, etc.) of increasing difficulty, and grab the coins/apples/hearts while avoiding the boulders. And there are enemies to make your life (even more) difficult.

Screenshots

Rockford: The Arcade Game ZX Spectrum This position looked safe but ...
Rockford: The Arcade Game ZX Spectrum There's something nasty in the space over on the right that will escape when the coin is collected, best leave it for now
Rockford: The Arcade Game ZX Spectrum Rockford also dies when the countdown timer reaches zero. This means he has to be moved very quickly because there's a lot of ground to cover
Rockford: The Arcade Game ZX Spectrum Upon choosing to start a game the player is prompted to choose which world they want to play. The game has many worlds but I could only select world 1 - possibly because I hadn't advanced far enough
