Best BD game since the 80's *****

0k this is a great game that harkins back to the first versions of Boulder Dash. I spent so many hours on my Atari in the 80’s playing BD with my Epyx joystick. I truly loved it. Even seeing that First Star Software logo brings back great memories. This is the first BD remake that has been just as enjoyable to play. The devs nailed movement on the iPad! Great levels and wonderful graphics. I payed 5 bucks to remove ads. I am getting my monies worth big time. Great job guys!

This game is so addictive I can’t put it down. One the best games I found on the App Store in awhile. It’s a different kind of puzzle game and a stand out in a sea of match 3 games!

Memories *****

Wow! What a stunning port of a great games from the 80’s. Brings back very fond memories of a significant potion of my youth spent wide eyed in front on a Commodore 64. We had hours and hours of fun with this game and many others.

Hats off to the software team that brought this classic game to life once more in an awesome modern version. Thank you.

Love this game  *****
I remember playing this as a child on the Commodore 64 and it’s been about 30 years since I’ve played it. It’s exactly as I remember it, if not better.

Best game on iPhone  *****

| was hesitant about this when on a whim | looked up one of my favourite games as a kid, boulder dash. | am blown away by how good this game is, it’s up to date and with amazing graphics to complement it. I’ve been playing this whenever possible the past 4 days and it’s addictive as it always was. Fantastic job the creators of this, | love your work.

by Erse filler, a year ago, United Kingdom

Top game app for this genre  *****

If you have played the original PC game many, many years ago, this is a more refined and personal version of it on the iPad. Stunning visual effects and fluid gameplay will keep you moving boulders for many hours. | hope there will be new levels available soon, as well as a level maker for anyone who wants to create their own unique levels.
