I've always wanted to check out Boulder Dash on this platform.

you know what? I never really played it on any platform! weird from a C64 user, as it was the biggest game back then.

This was definitely one of my favorites on the C64. I've long thought that if Atari had Elite, I would have been very content with an Atari 800.

Boulder Dash, M.U.L.E., Elite, and the Infocom adventures would have been enough for me, and Atari BASIC is so accessible compared to the PEEK/POKEs required on the C64, that would have kept me pretty engaged also.

And I just voted smiley

I didn't have time to watch the video this morning, so I came back to it this afternoon.

You're missing out on alot of points on this level. If you can clear the space under that horizontal wall, I believe those boulders will fall through it and turn to diamonds. (It has been many years since I played it, but that's what I recall).

I've got this game on Atari 2600.. I really need to invest some quality time on it!
