Boulder Dash - 30th Anniversary
is now available for Windows and OS X
. As the name
notes, this celebrates the release of the original in the 1980s in a rush to
take advantage of those who can still recall the bygone era. The original
Boulder Dash was first released for 8-bit systems in 1984, and the Anniversary
Edition first arrived a couple of years ago on mobiles. Now a new version is
available, tuned for PCs and bundled with a level editor. Here's word:
Today, TapStar Interactive and First Star Software, Inc. have released
Boulder Dash - 30th Anniversary for PC and Mac on the Steam store. Over 200
levels of classic arcade puzzle-action, the first level editor since 1987,
shareable levels via Steam Workshop support, and a new Hardcore difficulty mode,
make this the definitive Boulder Dash game in the best-selling series.
The original Boulder Dash® was created by Peter Liepa with Chris Gray and
published by First Star Software, Inc. in 1984. For Boulder Dash - 30th
Anniversary Peter Liepa and Chris Gray have each created a set of 20 new levels,
their first in over 30 years.
Key features for PC & Mac versions:
- Fully-featured level editor - Create and share
your own Boulder Dash levels!
- Steam Workshop - Upload and share your levels with
the world, download other user-made levels, and vote for your favorites!
- Hardcore Mode - Falling gems kill you and there
are no mid-level continues just like in the original. This brings a serious
new challenge to many levels! (Normal and Casual modes are also selectable)
- Control responsiveness and game speed have been
fine-tuned for PC gamers
- 220 levels included in the game, with Peter
Liepa’s mind-bending “The Bouldering Comp” and the remastered original 1984
game levels “Classic Remix” each available as special DLC
