Bouldercraft - A chaotic Boulder Dash C64 preview with a difference!

We've featured the 1984 Boulder Dash game many times now, from the release of Boulder Dash Junior II The Final Dig, to Boulder Dash Senior and even the more recent version on the VIC20. But now as something slightly different, we've just found out by through Saberman, that you can try out a very early preview of Viznut's chaotic and crazy Boulder Dash/survival-orientated world simulation game of 'Bouldercraft'. To coincide with this news story, you can view how crazy this early preview is in the video viewable below.

Here is what the NFO says about the game " Bouldercraft is a survival-oriented world simulation game based on a 2D cellular automation. It is basically a clone of Boulder Dash with some characteristics of Minecraft. The game was completely created by Viznut in October 2022 and first demo'd at the Zoo demoparty. Do be aware the game is still at a very early stage of development, so the game logic is subject to change. Further versions other than the C64 are planned in the near future "

  1. Watching the gameplay video, I can't really understand how the game works. It's so confusing to me.

  2. Pretty impressive amount of things happening on screen. Looks very interesting overall.
