Boulder Dash-30th Anniversary
by: Tapstar Interactive Inc. • 8.7K
This updated 3D version of the game offers up slick graphics and good sound wrapped up in a decent gameplay experience. While the old version was a top-down 2D adventure, this one is offers a different view from the side. It's a good game not without its faults.
Well rendered slick 3D graphics and accompanying sound. The levels are immersive and the gameplay is compelling. The in-game physics make sense and the available items are well thought out and provided in a decent number.
The controls can be a bit buggy. At times the character does not respond to player input. At some levels the character appears sluggish and does not move quickly through the environment. Large file size, semi-slow load times and intrusive ads.
