Boulder Dash, ColecoVision

The King of Grabs

The ColecoVision conversion of Boulder Dash is really quite wonderful. It was converted by Micro Lab and published on the Microfun label in 1984.

Graphically the game is well-defined and nicely-coloured. Gameplay-wise it is responsive and rewarding. All the classic Boulder Dash levels are present and correct and the programmers have resisted the temptation to redesign them.

For my money: one of the best games on the ColecoVision console. Boulder Dash generally works well on whatever format it is running on, and this ColecoVision version is the bee’s knees.
