Boulder Dash Rocks was...well, colourful I guess - but the world's still waiting for a Boulder Dash game that captures the essence of the original C64 classic.

Could Boulder Dash XL be it? Kalypso Media and First Star Software certainly seem to think so with their updated all new 720p HD version of the classic jewel-collecting rock-tumbling game.

Features of Boulder Dash XL include:

  • An updated HD look and feel, featuring 720p graphics
  • 4 new game modes (“Arcade”, plus all new “Puzzle”, “Zen” and “Time Challenge”)
  • A Retro Mode offering 25 “retro” Caves for a total of five game modes in all
  • New scoring mechanism adding new excitement and challenges for High Score hunters
  • Four beautiful and varied game worlds
  • Over 150 all-new Caves to explore while battling monsters and grabbing gems
  • Online Ranking Lists/ Leaderboards
  • Achievements support

Particularly like the sound of retro mode. Bring it on, Rockford!
