A Walk Down Memory Lane! Boulder Dash & Atari, Two Gaming Legends, Reunite in Their Most Modern Forms

BBG Entertainment GmbH, a leading producer and publisher of casual and retro games, announced today that Boulder Dash® Deluxethe reincarnation of Boulder Dash® from 1984, will first be made available on Atari®’s newly launched VCS Console.
 
You may feel like you’ve been thrown back into the 1980s. Two classics from that time, the Boulder Dash® video game and the Atari® VCS game console, are back! A classic game and a retro game console finally join forces again – with up-to-date specifications, graphics, and gaming elements. Boulder Dash® Deluxe’s core is based on the original game, first published in 1984. This most recent, and revolutionary update, was just completed when Atari® announced the upcoming launch of its new VCS Console.
 
Stephan Berendsen, President of BBG Entertainment GmbH, states: “Atari® now provides the platform that enables us to bring back together what have always belonged together – the Atari® and Boulder Dash® with both their origins dating back to the 1980s. Back then, the original Boulder Dash® was first released for the Atari® 400/800 home computer. When I heard about Atari®’s VCS Console launch, I saw a fantastic opportunity to offer retro-gaming fans across the globe a unique set-up. Boulder Dash® Deluxe will therefore first be released on that console.”
 
Boulder Dash® Deluxe takes you, together with its in-game character Rockford™, into a myriad of new and exciting challenges. Dig through spectacular caves with 3D elements; avoid falling boulders; collect valuable gems and avoid nefarious enemies along the way. Discover treasure chests with rare collectibles and valuable power-ups. Boulder Dash® Deluxe includes 180 new, exciting and unique levels. As a bonus for all fans, Peter Liepa, creator of the original Boulder Dash®, and a video game legend himself, has created  “Liepa World” – with a set of 20 of the most mind-bending levels ever!
 
The game is priced at US $14.99 for the Atari® VCS Console. In March, PC versions of Boulder Dash® Deluxe (Windows and Mac) will be released on Steam®. In the not distant future, Boulder Dash® fans will be able to rejoice when Boulder Dash® Deluxe is made available for iOS on the Apple App Store℠, Android™ on the Google Play™ store.
