Walker-Smythe needs to find the perfect engagement ring to win
the heart of his true love Tania when he asks for her hand in marriage.
And so, to prove his devotion, he sets off to
mines in search of the perfect diamond...
- "...this is a great
implementation of First Star's classic Atari 400/800 game Boulder Dash,
and with 32 levels is probably the biggest game ever on the monochrome
Sinclair... In my opinion, this is the best ZX81 game ever,
beating Bob Smith's Virus by the finest of margins. Taking the
limitations of the hardware out of the equation, Boulder Logic is still
a very, very good game" - 9/10.
Retro Gamer -
Sizzler - "Boulder Logic is Bob Smith's attempt at cramming the challenge of
Atari 8-bit classic Boulder Dash into 16K of ZX81, and it is
admirable... The difficulty has been pitched well too,
challenging players from the start and letting them discover the means
to get through each stage..." - 90%
Another kind of
game I haven't written before.
All of the examples I'd previous seen for the Zeddy didn't
impressive - all single-screen with single-character graphics - and so
I felt now
was a good time to try and write a better looking and more playable
version, with larger graphics and a fully-scrolling playing field.
I'm also quite proud of having managed to fit 32 levels into
final game, which could possibly be a record on a 16K machine.
