Rockford takes off his ‘hat’

The new Boulder Dash- ROCKS!
trailer shows Rockford at work and lifts the shroud of mystery surrounding his
new look

Dyed-in-the-wool Boulder Dash(r)
fans will remember Rockford as an insect-like creature, and may just be more
than a little surprised upon seeing Rockford’s new look in his new title
Boulder Dash(r)-ROCKS! “, due for release on the Nintendo DS  on November
22nd 2007 in Europe and on the Sony PSP  in the first quarter of 2008. Did
he just fall into a vat of blue paint, or did some cosmetic surgery go
drastically wrong?  now officially reveals the secret behind
his new look!

First Star Software, Inc.’s tricky
puzzle and dexterity game made its debut in the early 80s and continues to
fascinate its large fan base making it a classic in the history of interactive
entertainment. Now Boulder Dash(r) is back with a hot new look to take the
Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP platforms by storm. The hit game’s principle
remains unchanged: players have to collect sparkling diamonds while avoiding
numerous traps and beating opponents to reach them, all the while watching out
for falling boulders.

Each platform version contains four
gaming modes. In addition to the classic single-player mode, taking players
through 80 levels across four different game worlds, Boulder Dash(r)-ROCKS! 
now offers a new multi-player mode and two additional play modes. When
developing Boulder Dash(r)-ROCKS!  a new game and different, game mode was
custom designed for each of the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP platforms, modes never
seen before in any Boulder Dash(r) game.
