    TRIVIA
    Released in May 1990.

    This game is a port from an original game designed at First Star Software by Peter Liepa and Chris Gray for the Apple II computer.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Escape Trick: There is an escape mode that allows you to go through the stones and any moving walls. To activate it, press the A and B buttons at the same time while moving. There is a cost involved, though - it deducts 20 seconds for each stone or wall passed through.
    • Boulder Dash Part 2: There is a way to access Boulder Dash Part 2 from the attract mode (Part 2 has the same levels, but increased difficulty). To access it, press the following key sequence while the player list is onscreen: A+Up, A+Down, Left, Right.
