Herocraft, the guys behind Bombergeddon, and First Star Software has released a reboot to the classic Boulder Dash game called Boulder Dash-XL on the Google Play Store.

Boulder Dash-XL has completely revamped graphics while also making sure that the core of the game is identical to the original Boulder Dash, which release in 1984 on the NES. Players have to collect as many gems as they can while taking down enemies and avoiding hazardous traps.

The reboot will allow players to use characters Rockdash or Crystal to explore 100 different caves. The game has five game modes, including a retro one that will let users switch out the graphics for something a little more reminiscent of the classic game.

All in all, Boulder Dash-XL is a fun reboot of the original game for Android. It won’t provide endless hours of gameplay, but it sure is a treat for those who are familiar with the original game.

If you’re interested in a Boulder Dash reboot, it’ll cost you $2.99 on the Google Play Store.
