    @Sparks: How do you rate the C64 version compared to others? It was the only one I've played but remember it was pretty damn addictive.

    Sparks: I have heard that the Atari 8 bit version was the best would you care to comment on this.......:rolleyes:

    Sparks43 - what's the longest you've ever played in one session?

    Is it true playing Boulder Dash increases virility? :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,874 ✭✭✭Steve X2


    Sparks43, is it true that this is the only game you are any good at and that's the reason for your obsession? (I hear you are almost as good as me at it) :D

    Sparks43, is it true that Boulder Dash XL on the 360 is the greatest version of the game ever created?

    Sparks43, will they be releasing a patch for the Spectrum version to enable 3D and internet multiplayer?

    Thank you for your time.

    Of the 8-bit versions i think the C64 is the best

    The Atari version is good and i know preferring a conversion is a little bit weird

    And yes it is quite addictive:pac:

    Ive played for 10 hours in a straight session when i played it on the C64 and there was no saving

    Would probably do a 24 hour marathon sometime in the future

    As for increasing virility it does Fact!!!!

    Boulder Dash is not the only game i am good at

    Boulder Dash xl is a load of Dingoes Kidneys tbh the creators should be shot with balls of there own ****e

    As for the Speccy patch i can neither confirm nor deny its existance :D


    Repton ? better or worse than boulderdash?

    Worse by miles

    Cant believe you can even ask such a question:pac:

    How about that great version of Halo on the CDi, I believe sprouts feature heavily in the gameplay. ;)

    Isn't boulderdash a clone/copy/homage/rip off of another game?

    Not sure what one but I think it was mention here a while ago.

    Finally someone does a proper review

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,056 ✭✭✭Sparks43


    Been playing quite a bit of the Atari 800 versions on my psp.

    Still think the C64 is better but not by as much as i used to

    This qualifies as the thread equivalent of reanimating a stiffened, bloated corpse...
