I love Boulder Dash, congrats Intellivision fans! FSS are great, letting homebrewers port this awesome game to classic consoles is a very nice move.
BD is awesome on the 2600, one of the best games on the system without a doubt.

I would love to see a Jaguar version someday... :105:

Wow an official licensed version, this is really cool!

It's good to see that at least some companies do agree to licensing games to old systems.  They've been trying to get licensing for Ms. Pac-Man and a few other games without any success.

No doubt, Crystal Mines II on the Lynx is a nice BD clone!

I will be really interested to see how this version compares to the one on the Atari 2600!

Great to see this game getting another retro release!  :16:

I'm quite curious to see how the game looks on the Intellivision.  I'm sure a good effort will be put forward to make it as good as it can be for the system.

"I love Boulder Dash, congrats Intellivision fans! FSS are great, letting homebrewers port this awesome game to classic consoles is a very nice move."


They didn't 'let' us port the game. This is officially licensed, bought and paid for. First Star Software, Inc. and Classic Game Publishers, Inc. in association with Elektronite are co-publishing the game.

We aren't 'homebrewers'.

I've said it many times, but people insist on calling us 'homebrew'. We are a real company. As real as First Star Software.

This is a graphic of the First Star logo running on a real Intellivision.

Great game! Great looking graphic!

The homebrew comment should be viewed as a positive.

Electronic Arts is a real company. Lately, I have seen homebrew games that are better than the dribble EA releases.

Use it for your advertising. "Elektronite! We are not homebrewers, but we are the next best thing." 

Gamers trust the small guy who cares, over the big corporations that could care less.
