The Atari Times (Nov 06, 2006)
First Star Software really scored a hit with Boulderdash. The game has everlasting appeal and endless replay value. If you have an Atari 800 or compatible, I highly suggest adding this game to your library. It will bring hours of fun to any game player of any age.
The Video Game Critic (Jul 26, 2014)
This is a game more people need to discover. Far more than the sum of its parts, Boulder Dash is a rare combination of strategy and frantic arcade fun.
Bedenkt man, daß die Grafik vom Feinsten ist, und eingedenk der Tatsache, daß Sound, Spielwitz und Unterhaltungswert ausgezeichnet sind, kann man dieses Spiel eigentlich nur jedem Atari-User empfehlen! Auch der Preis stimmt!
Happy Computer (Jan, 1985)
Dieses witzige Spiel für Commodore 64 und alle Atari-Computer, das zirka 80 Mark kostet, macht vor allem dank seiner Vielfalt und Originalität viel Spaß. Erfreulicherweise sind einige der 16 Spielstufen auch einzeln anwählbar.
