Rock Maze Reset Edition - Graham Axten overhauls a C64 Boulder Dash clone and it's good!


Way back in 1996, Graham Axten (TOKI) made a cool Bolder Dash clone called Rock Maze, in which you needed to guide your character deep into the underground digging through the dirt and collecting all the diamonds without getting squashed. What added to the re-playability of the game was the use of passwords with each level completion, so you could always come back to a level that caused you all that grief in the first place. But putting the original aside for the time being, the news of this weekend and a heads up by Vintageisthenewold, is the overhauled release of ' Rock Maze : Reset Edition ' which has been released by the Reset Magazine Staff from Graham Axten and is also available on the Reset #08 Mix-i-Disk.


Now I'm not sure if you remember the old version of this game, but this reset edition looks completely different graphically with everything from the side bar detail, the diamonds, the boulders, the little blue man and even the underground green textures looking so much better with far more depth. But that's not all that's changed, as apart from the new menu tune, they've also added an extra touch to the gameplay, such as picking up a pickaxe which gives you a rather special diamond surprise.


In all this is a lovely little game and I can't wait to see what else the Reset Magazine Staff will be releasing in the future from other developers!
