A conversion of the classic Boulder Dash game. The player is deep down in a cave and has to collect emeralds and diamonds while evading monsters - and the laws of gravity, which have the annoying habit of squishing him with huge rocks if he happens to stand beneath one as it falls down.

The game also has a two-player mode where two people can rid caves of their valuables at the same time - in addition to the 80 levels, there are 20 exclusive two-player levels.


Emerald Mine Amiga Collect diamonds and emeralds. That's what life's all about.
Emerald Mine Amiga Your deeds will be remembered in this high score list with its old-school copper effect.
Emerald Mine Amiga These monsters are actually kind of funny, aside from the fact that they eat diamonds and kill you.
Emerald Mine Amiga You can crack nuts open with rocks to reveal the emeralds inside them.
