Boulder Dash - 30th Anniversary got Greenlit!
Level Editor Preview
Release date: July 2016
Cave Editor and Steam Workshop Support - Make Boulder Dash®-30th Anniversary™ your own by creating and sharing your own caves with the Steam Community. Leave your mark on Boulder Dash for the next 30 years.

The original Boulder Dash® was created by Peter Liepa with Chris Gray over 30 years ago and published by First Star Software in 1984. Boulder Dash®-30th Anniversary™ is the first, and only, game in the multi-million unit selling Boulder Dash series to include new worlds designed by Peter Liepa and another by Chris Gray.

Gem Collectors, Dig This! Boulder Dash-30th Anniversary finds our heroes, Rockford™, Crystal™ and others, facing a slew of new, exciting challenges in this legendary action puzzler. Dig through spectacular caves with 3D elements; avoid falling boulders; collect valuable gems and avoid nefarious enemies along the way as you search for the exit before time runs out. Discover treasure chests with rare collectibles, use potent power-ups. With 260 exciting levels across 13 new, gorgeous and unique worlds, and 10 playable characters, Boulder Dash-30th Anniversary is the best game in its 30 year history.

While providing classic Boulder Dash core gameplay mechanics and features, Boulder Dash-30th Anniversary introduces exciting new elements such as diagonal movement, using ramps, which opens up new and intriguing puzzles while creating a very different and organic look for the caves.

Features Include:
• 260 all-new levels with advanced physics!
• 13 Never-before-seen worlds, with new creatures with 3D animations!
• New multicolored gem combos, treasure chests, rare collectibles and spectacular power-ups!
• New world by videogame legend Peter Liepa who returns to the game he created 30 years ago with 20 of the most mind-bending caves yet!
