Rockford is an intrepid treasure hunter who one day, regardless of the many dangers, decides to penetrate a network of vast caves. Legend has it that in the latter there is a mass of jewels that have been waiting for years for their new owner. The problem is that it is not easy to get through a complex system of corridors, which is why Rockford needs to be helped in the "diamonds" operation.

Just like most of the production from the eighties of the last century, also produced by First Star Software, Inc. Boulder Dash is characterized by extremely simple rules. In each labyrinth you visit, Rockford must find a predetermined number of diamonds and then use the exit. Drilling corridors is not facilitated by limited time (the higher the level of difficulty, the less time we have), as well as numerous traps in the form of boulders. If one of the latter falls on our hero's head, we lose one of the additional "live" and we repeat the whole game from the beginning. During the game you should also remember about your opponents in the labyrinth, who will kill Rockford during the first contact. Fortunately, they can be eliminated with the help of stones, provided that we manage to hit the delicatessen, of course.

Although the game contains only sixteen stages, the player can have some influence on their appearance by setting the bar high enough. After changing the difficulty level (in total there are five of them), the layout of the walls does not change, but the position of stones and diamonds. There is also a growing number of enemies who will at all costs try to eliminate the daredevil.

Boulder Dash works in low resolution mode, using only four colors. Despite the fact that the visual setting is not the strongest point of the program, the graphics are legible - so no one should have any problems in exploring the underground. The game does not support music cards and the sound is limited to Speaker's PC pops.
