Boulder Dash Xmas is a single player, keyboard controlled, updated version of an classic puzzler.

The game is available for download as a try-before-you-buy fifteen level demo game while the full game has sixty five levels. Given the Christmas theme its no surprise that instead of Rockford tunnelling underground for gems and diamonds, this game features Santa ploughing through the snow in search of tree ornaments and presents. Other than that and obvious graphic improvements the game plays just the same, Santa must collect all the items on the screen while avoiding falling snowballs. Once he collects the last item an exit door is revealed and he can escape to the next level.

There is a high score table within the game and there's also an on-line high score table which, in 2014, was empty.
