Fans asked for Premium, and we listened; the result being an exciting stand-alone experience now available on whatever portable platform you play on!
The original Boulder Dash® was created by Peter Liepa with Chris Gray, and was first released in 1984 by First Star Software, Inc. who continues to own the brand. Since the original, ‘Boulder Dash-30th Anniversary’ is by far the best game in the entire multi-million unit series’ 30-year history.
“We’ve had lots of requests from fans for a Premium mobile experience, something closer to a console game with no ads or microtransactions, and this version definitely delivers. We’ve also included some extremely special DLC options, including the completely remastered, classic Boulder Dash from 1984, along with some new, hardcore levels, including an all-new cave pack I’ve created to challenge the most advanced players!” – Chris Gray, TapStar Interactive C.E.O.
First Star Software’s president, Richard M. Spitalny added: “Working with Peter and Chris again, after 30 years, has been amazing! Everyone has pulled together to produce a game truly worthy of the brand’s legacy. I hope that by supporting all of the mobile platforms and offering a premium version of the app, long-time Boulder Dash fans, as well as those new to the game, will feel that their voices have been heard.”
