BOULDER DASH®-XL 3D™
The diamond encrusted classic set to shine on Nintendo 3DS.
In this sequel to the 1984 classic action-puzzler, players set forth as Rockford™ or Crystal™ and mine their way through a variety of hazardous, yet stunning, three dimensional caves whilst rushing against time, avoiding crushing boulders and an eerie menagerie of killer creatures.
Explore these 100 caves and collect the right number of Diamonds while avoiding Boulders and Enemies to unlock the exit. But hurry .… the clock is ticking! The difficulty increases with each new cave and more Enemies and challenges will emerge as you progress. After completing a cave successfully, a green checkmark will appear next to it in the cave list. If you complete a level perfectly, a gold checkmark will appear. If you get stuck in a cave, just press and choose “Retry”.
The 25 caves in Puzzle Mode allow you to collect Diamonds and find the Exit without the pressure of the clock. Puzzle caves have no time limit; and, you can restart a cave as many times as you like, if you get trapped or killed. The caves in Puzzle Mode must be played in sequence; but, once a cave has been won, it is unlocked and can be replayed at any time.
Aahhhh …. take a deep breath and relax. Zen Mode allows you to play the caves from Arcade Mode without any time limit. This is your chance to plan new strategies for increasing your score for caves in Arcade Mode. Just remember: the progress made in Zen Mode will not be transferred to Arcade Mode.
Score Mode features four huge levels that are especially designed to reward skillful play! It also features extra ways to chain attacks and kill enemies. Here, only one diamond is required to open the cave’s Exit. Reaching the Exit in time will get you a bonus depending on the time left (each second left is worth 10 points), so you’ll need to work out a strategy in order to find the right balance between collecting and chaining as many diamonds as possible and reaching the Exit in time.
Retro Mode pays homage to the very first, original Boulder Dash®, with 3D-Interpretations of those much loved retro graphics. These 25 cave designs and scoring are also very reminiscent of the original.
