grandfather! :-) great! the best man here is........... :-) enrico! he has the most life experience! :-) year 1947!? wow! ;-)

nesdori 14-09-30 17:27

wise words, enrico. i respect so many players and cave designers in a way or other that i don't want to do any sorting. it is generally respectful if someone still plays or designs caves for a 30 year old ancient game! we all should be on the list :)

enrico 14-09-30 16:03

grandfather enrico greets everyone!
i do not like to draw charts, i only say that the genius and skill that i observe here, are to be admired and sometimes envied in the good sense of the word. play and be happy!

donsan 14-09-30 13:42

nicol you have forgotten 3 great players!!!! ;-) and enrico 67 years.... wow! and play this game! great! by the way... i am 40+ too!

nicol 14-09-30 02:48

nesdori - no no, not the way to fools us by finding optimum solution :-) i was watching lots of your replays and i was tracking which caves you play. you only play on this caves that isnt for long time solved and have lots of attempts, another thing is the style your gameplay, you play extremly dynamic, does not affect you the differences of fps speed, you not stucking etc etc. this proof your experience and spend time in game :-d.

if i have to set my top players in boulder dash here:

1. nesdori
2. demo (just behind nesdori)
3. eko

nesdori 14-09-30 00:33

krissz! how's it going in papua new guinea?-) i have a feature proposal for you. i think it would be a good idea to add a general comments board on the top of the cave list. i guess there wouldn't been lot of coding required because it can be done using the existing functionality. for example, there could be a line "general comments" similar to cave info line and when it's clicked it would pop up the comment list in the same way it's done when a cave info is popped open (the only difference is that there's no real cave so cave image and info is just missing). currently there's lot of general discussion on several different cave comment list and it would be a nice and clean solution to put general comments and discussions elsewhere.

nesdori 14-09-29 23:49

nicol, thanks for the compliment but i think it's my obsession to find the optimum solution which fools you to think that i'm a good player :) other reasons: 30 years of practice, gaming keyboard, love of all kinds of logic puzzles and brain games and the most important: the force (the light side of course :)

nicol 14-09-29 22:18

hello guys :-) nesdori now you answer my question how you could be so good in this game!. i have 29 in november :-)

enrico 14-09-29 20:21

i'm going for the 67 candles on the cake, and i will continue!:-) :_)

nesdori 14-09-29 20:08

a question out of my curiosity: how old are you guys? the first time i played boulder dash was bd1 on commodore 64 on year 1983. i was a teenager back then so now i'm 40+ :)

enrico 14-09-29 19:49

well, my curiosity was to find the shortest path. thanks to the stimulus that comes from you and other friends with their caves sometimes impossible. i am a man not so young anymore, but i still have fun like a kid! sometimes i arrive at the top of the list, even with a bit of luck. hip hip hip boulder dash!

donsan 14-09-29 18:28

a beautiful cave in the style of donsan, but far from easy. original and very misleading to the exit.
i have spoken to many swear words after the harvest, when i realized i was not able to return having blocked the way!

happy hardcore! :-) haste dich ja mal wieder selbst uebertroffen! :-)

nesdori 14-09-27 11:36

i still think that the original setup was impossible rather than extremely difficult. there just wasn't safe way to run past the fly.

trischi83 14-09-27 11:27

hey nesdori, yes it was possible but extremely difficult,i have the position changed somewhat.

nesdori 14-09-27 11:24

ok, better now :)

nesdori 14-09-27 10:43

trischi, are you sure this cave is solvable? i think it's not possible to get past the first butterfly.

Navigation:

  • Arrow keys on keyboard
    D-pad or first analog stick on gamepad
    Use these like the C64 joystick to navigate Rockford four direction. The horizontal direction always important then vertical.
  • CTRL or SHIFT key on keyboard
    face buttons on gamepad
    The behavior of these buttons equivalent with the joystick fire button. You can prevent Rockford move when you hold down these buttons.
  • The gamepad available only if it supported by your browser.

Elements of the game:

  • Rockford
    Rockford is the hero of the game, the character controlled by the player. His goal is to collect diamonds and avoid contact with monsters and falling rocks.
  • Dirt and Space
    Dirt and Space are the two basic components of the playfield. Dirt can serve for blocking and/or suspending objects, while space allows them to move freely. Rockford clears dirt as he moves, creating space.
  • Rock
    Rocks are probably the most commonly encountered elements of the game. Upon removing the dirt from beneath them, they fall until they reach solid ground again. A falling rock can not only crush enemies, but also Rockford as well. Rocks can also "roll off" of other rocks and diamonds too if there is space beside them, and Rockford can also push single rocks sideways if there is nothing else in the way.
  • Diamond
    Diamonds are the items Rockford must collect in order to open the exit of a level. They otherwise act like boulders.
  • Brick and Titanium Wall
    Walls are the delimiters of the level. Two basic types exist, destructible (which looks like brick, and can be removed with explosions) and indestructible (made of titanium and from which the edge of the level is usually made).
  • Expanding wall
    Expanding walls look and act just like destructible walls, with one difference: when possible, they expand horizontally, often trapping the player or enemies. Expanding walls are made out of themselves - blowing a hole in the middle of a row causes it to close in again almost immediately.
  • Magic wall
    Magic Walls look and act just like destructible walls except that when a boulder is dropped on a magic wall, it falls through and turns into a diamond. Conversely a diamond dropped on a magic wall turns into a boulder. If there is no empty space underneath the magic wall, a boulder or diamond dropped onto it will simply disappear. The level settings specify the amount of time that magic walls will "mill", i.e. turn rocks into diamonds and vice versa; after which they deactivate, and any more rocks or diamonds that fall onto them will simply disappear.
  • Firefly
    Fireflies are one of the common enemies in the game. When next to a wall, they follow it to their left (clockwise); otherwise they circle around a point in a 2x2 area. When a rock or diamond is dropped on them, they explode in a 3x3 square, destroying anything in that area except indestructible walls and leaving empty space behind. They also explode when Rockford touches them, killing both themselves and Rockford.
  • Butterfly
    Butterflies are similar to fireflies, with two important differences. They follow the wall to their right (anti-clockwise) and when they explode, they leave behind nine diamonds arranged in a 3x3 square (unless one of these spaces happens to contain an indestructible wall).
  • Amoeba
    Amoeba is one of the most unpredictable elements of the game. It grows at a random rate, by expanding into adjacent space and dirt. The level settings include a duration after which the amoeba's growth rate will dramatically increase. The amoeba is not directly dangerous to Rockford, although it is capable of enclosing and trapping him, or blocking him from reaching the exit. If the amoeba grows too large, it will solidify into boulders, and if it is stopped from growing any more, it will crystallize into diamonds.
  • Slime
    Slime looks similar to the amoeba but it works completely differently. Slime does not grow, and does not cause enemies to explode on contact. Its functionality is revealed when dropping a rock or a diamond on top of it; slime has a permeability rate which defines how long the item will remain sitting on top of it before falling through. This happens in quite a sudden and random manner, making the game rely on improvising even more.
  • Voodoo Rockford
    Voodoo Rockfords are dummy Rockfords which can't be moved but if a monster hits them they will explode and cause simultaneously the real Rockford explode as well. You have to prevent or block flies to reach them.
  • Exit, Hidden exit
    The exit is the final goal Rockford must reach after collecting enough diamonds. It is disguised as an indestructible wall. After the required number of diamonds is collected the normal exit reveals itself unlike the hidden exit.
