Boulderdash Games

 

Boulder Dash, is a 2D puzzle video game released in 1984 by First Star Software for Atari 8-bit computers.[2] It was created by Canadian developers Peter Liepa and Chris Gray. The player controls Rockford,[3] who must dig through caves collecting gems and diamonds and reach the exit within a time limit, while avoiding various types of dangerous creatures as well as falling rocks and the constant danger of being crushed or trapped by an avalanche, or killed by an underground explosion.

Boulder Dash was ported to many 8-bit and 16-bit systems, turned into a coin-operated arcade game, and followed by multiple sequels and re-releases. It created what was later labeled the rocks-and-diamonds genre, influencing games such as Repton and direct clones such as Emerald Mine.
