Classic mining fun

The older gamers among you, especially Commodore fans of which I proudly name myself one, will instantly recognise Rocks'n'Diamonds as almost a tribute to such classics as Boulder Dash and Emerald Mine. And you'll be glad to know the action is virtually the same. The only difference being that the precious jewels in these mines are diamonds as well as emeralds.

The graphics lend themselves to those halcyon days and the gameplay is very similar to the old keyboard and joystick jerk that I know I used to enjoy so much. As soon as you collect enough shimmering stones the door of the mine opens to the next level. However, it's not so simple. You must also avoid the mining monsters and beat the clock. One great addition here, is that by using the editing tool you can create your very own levels. This might be better for the more patient, if not technical, among you as it takes a little time. But the results are great and you can of course make each level as simple or difficult as you like. There are already over 10,000 levels available, so if you don't fancy yourself as a designer don't worry.

Arcade style game in the tradition of Boulder Dash, Emerald Mine, Supaplex and Sokoban.

Features include:

  • soft scrolling with 50 frames per second
  • stereo sound effects and music
  • music modules and fullscreen in SDL version
  • contains levels to play Boulder Dash, Emerald Mine and Sokoban
  • lots of additional levels available (over 10.000)
  • distributed with full source code under the GNU General Public License
