Rock Runner is a Boulder Dash variant. The game contains fifteen levels where the player has to dig tunnels through earth and collect all the diamonds before time runs out. While doing so it is necessary to watch out for boulders which can fall down and crush the player. There are also some enemies that can kill the player upon contact. They can be destroyed by falling boulders or by placing a bomb next to them and will then turned into diamonds. Other obstacles include walls and expanding acid pools. Once all diamonds have been collected the player can move on to the next level.

A sequel to Rock Runner was in development by author Eric Lafortune in 1996 but it remains unreleased. It was developed for the Acorn Archimedes and unlike the original it used an isometric perspective.
