Very happy this is out ! Thought it might be a NZ release but nope its out.

Huge fan of Boulderdash, hope this ones decent ! Looks good from the videos, looking forward to playing this later

Edit - Had a quick go, got a few different control options, love the retro mode !

Does seem quite slow but i 'presume' its just because its the early levels. But a lot of variety to it, hope it speeds up later

Tried the retro mode straight away, seems quite slow compared to the original. Wonder if it speeds up later

Everything else seems good so far but perhaps i'm in a 'beginner' mode or something, just needs a bit more speed

Until I get the all-clear on whether or not linking to live streams is allowed, I'll just sneakily suggest that it's happening right now with this game. If you're interested you'll know what to do

Edit: Stream finished.

Only tried retro and looks exactly as I remembered. Didn't like the joystick but see there's virtual buttons which may be better. Would love iCade on this. Rockford rules.

Not much attention for this one today. Might have to give it a go. Interesting.

Yep...surprisingly for once in my life I've held out on buying something in order for some impressions to roll in, but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen with this one. Odd considering it's Boulder Dash.

And adding the fact that it's £1.99...this is going to struggle to sell.

If it was 69p it would sell more than what it probably currently is.

Boulderdash was a cool little game back in the day..but it'll get swamped and lost forever in the app store at its current price.
