Boulder Dash Atari 8bit


RetroX

Recommended Posts

Boulder Dash was born on Atari 8bit 1984. Later a C64 version was released. Since then countless of Boulder Dash clones have been released.

I have always been a big fan of Boulder Dash since mid 80's. Boulder Dash is among the best games ever made and when Boulder Dash Construction Kit was released, Boulder Dash became immortal. New construction kit games is still released today.

My collection of Boulder Dash games for Atari 8bit. Some diskimages is in .xex format. The Atari guys from Polen created their own disk format .xex that works great but you need the Altirra emulator to run those disks.

I use .XEX disks on my real Atari with my real 1050 ALL THE TIME. what are you talking about? Or with A.P.E and SIO2PC load from my PC to Atari. I use  A.P.E and my 1050-2-PC to make the real disks from .xex files. .xex files load normally just like .exe and .com files with the usual DOS's too.

 

here is were you get A.P.E and sio2pc/1050-2-pc software and cables as well as lots of other Atari goodies: http://www.atarimax.com

he even has stuff not listed, if you e-mail him, like 256/512k ram upgrade board compatible with RAMBO, etc.

 

My 1200XL is full of Atarimax upgrades; 512K ram, 32-in-1 OS, SIO2PC, 1050-2-PC, IDE cart SD card reader, etc.The only upgrades in my 1200XL that isn't Atarimax is my dual-Pokey stereo upgrade board and my Super video 2.x upgrade.

A huge favorite of mine, was Boulder Dash, it was so sneaky and devlish , you either had a choice to blow your head off  because of those lousy diamonds kept falling down on your head or option B , visit your shrink and have him give you something to help make it all bearable.... but that title music, one of the best Atari looped sound tracks to grace the A8 machines!
