  • Summary: A classic reborn, Boulder Dash-XL updates the best 80's action-puzzler with cutting-edge graphics and gameplay.

    With over 100 caves of frantic robo-mining fun across 5 game modes - including Retro caves! As mining robots Rockford or Crystal dig, dynamite, push and puzzle to the exit as
    fast as you can - but watch out for many types of roaming monsters determined to block your delving delight. Crush them with boulders, blast them with dynamite or just run away! And, yes, this is the exact same game that's on Xbox 360 and PC! Who needs a console when you can have a cutting edge game in the palm of your hand? With puzzle, retro and arcade modes, two robots to control, a variety of exciting and dangerous monsters, leaderboards, achievements, and wonderful gadgets, Boulder Dash-XL is an action-puzzler you'll really dig.

    It's a great port/adaptation of a classic and is bound to please long time fans and newcomers alike.

    While the variety of choice is nice, Boulderdash is a game of its time, and this does little to revamp it for a new audience.

    Boulder Dash XL is an overprized remake of a classic that misses the mark by not having tight controls. If you still have memories of running around as Rockford in your youth I advise you to cherish them, as you won't relive those days with this version. For those who have never played Boulder Dash I advice you to wait for a price drop, or lite version.
