Over at Brass Lantern, I got email about a new Boulder Dash sequel coming out. I hadn’t thought of that game in years and years. In it, you run around, digging out dirt, collecting gems, and using rocks to crush your many enemies.
You can, of course, download the original game and its many clones and play them in emulators, but surely, I thought, someone’s done a Dashalike in Flash. And indeed they have: Acno’s Energizer. The goal’s different: instead of gathering gems, you’re energizing a teleporter so you can go to a new level and, er, do it all over again. But the gameplay is very similar to the original, and has the puzzly elements I enjoyed so much about the original.
I will not waste all of my free time on this. I will not waste all of my free time on this.
