There's not much written about this game on the forums- it's mostly about the switch-over from freemium to paid. What's it actually play like? Sorta looks a bit like a...timed, level-based Doug Dug from where I'm standing, which could be OK?

Definitely fun! I can't believe this is the first I have heard of this game. I am glad I purchased it, the only thing that makes me a little weary are all the things that could easily become IAP (gold bars, treasure chests, power ups) I am going to hold off on purchasing the other worlds until I am certain this is not getting ready to Go f2p on me. The price drop makes me a little suspicious.

I believe this was originally released as free-to-play, but they switched to a premium model.

The free to play version is still available in the the store.

And it is a timed level set up. You have to unlock a gate by collecting so many diamonds then make it to the gate.

I have this version but I haven't play much of it. It's hard to tell, with so many games to play, whether I'm just not having fun with a game or if I'm just more interested in something else at the moment. I haven't deleted it from my device, because I want to go back at some point.

Also, I think the creators of the original game were involved in the making of this one and it is an official Boulder Dash licensed game and not some crappy knock off.

The IAP you see is the expansions they have for it that is all the IAP there is so very fair.
