Inin Games and BBG Entertainment have announced that the boxed edition of Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection for Nintendo Switch is now available in North America.
Boulder Dash is a forgotten classic. It was a groundbreaking interactive game when it was initially published in 1984, at the start of the computer and home video game era. Actually, it’s groundbreaking in a literal sense too since it is a “dig and gather” action-puzzle game that helped to establish its own genre. Rockford must be guided through tunnels while gathering gems in order to reach the exit in a limited period of time while avoiding various sorts of deadly beasts and hazardous obstacles.
For almost four decades, Boulder Dash and its countless successors have pleased and challenged casual and serious players of all ages. The franchise has been ported to the NES, Nintendo Gameboy, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, and even the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox after its first release.
A complete collection
Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection includes two games: Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary and Boulder Dash Deluxe, each with nearly 400 all-new levels. As Rockford, the game’s primary character, you’ll travel through a variety of other realms. Each planet has 20 stages, each having its own set of adversaries, graphics, and animations. Dig through the sand to traverse caves and manipulate the environment to your benefit.
This surprising comeback of one of video games’ oldest brands is now available for the Nintendo Switch in select North American shops. European gamers who are anxious to get their hands on this fantastic collection will be able to do so starting February 18.
