Rock Crush is a variant of Boulder Dash. The player controls Diamond Dan who must be navigated through ten different caverns while collecting all the diamonds he finds. At the same time the player has to watch out for rocks. Standing under a rock for more than a short moment will lead to Dan being crushed. Each level consists of a single screen. Since there is not much space to move in the player has to plan ahead. This makes the game more puzzle oriented than the original Boulder Dash since there is only one correct path to take through the level. Another difference is that there are no monsters. The only way to die is to be crushed by a rock. After four deaths the game is over. When stuck the player can restart the level but that also leads to a life being lost.
