Dig some more!
Boulder Dash 2 is the sequel to the bombastic Boulder Dash from 1984 featuring 2 player options, slighlty better graphics and a more complicated sound system. The gameplay is unchanged - you have to dig yourself out to the exit of the level in a time frame while making sure you don't get squashed by boulders that come loose if you dig right under them and other menaces. While digging, you collect gems and other valuable items which also give you score points. You also have to solve various interesting puzzles. The game has slightly improved coloring and texture and maybe some better animation, but it is not a big progress. The sound department is also slightly improved with more detailed game sounds and a quick tune at the game menu, but that is about it. Other than that, the game is very similar to the last one. The good thing is that the game still has that exciting atmosphere and that it is still very fun to play, meaning this is not one of those sequels that are worse than the previous game. For those who already played Boulder Dash, this will be a great continue of the adventure, and for the ones who just tuned in this is going to be a fun and exciting game for all ages.
