Boulder Dash (two words) originated on the Atari home computer (tho quickly spread everywhere). This clone attempt ain't that good (see the game "Infotron" is much better), BD v1.0.4 has gameplay bugs, like twice I was killed when a pile of diamonds fell on me which shouldn't kill me at all and usually doesn't, and v1.0.4i is the same game only with better (more faithful to the original) reskinned graphics and levels done by a 2nd author ("CWS"). This game seems to play sound samples captured from the original game, which causes clunky motion due to the overhead in playing samples for EVERY move vs. if they'd synthesized sounds which would play smoother.
