App Description

In this all new Nintendo DS sequel to the top retro action-puzzle hit, Boulder Dash®, now available on iPhone/iPod Touch, players must collect the required amount of diamonds while avoiding falling objects, traps and besting enemies in order to open and escape through the exit, before time runs out.

In 104 all new levels, take control of Rockford™ and collect as many diamonds as quickly as you can in 4 beautiful, sprawling worlds each with unique enemies and 21 levels in each world. Defeat your arch enemy in level 16 of each world to unlock the next world. Clear level 16 of the Nether World to win the game. Ready for more fun and challenges? Play the 20 levels in Time Trial mode. In order to succeed, you’ll have to use all the tools at your disposal: the Zapper, five types of ammo, and four power-ups.

"...Swipe controls worked very well and offers the ability to play single handedly. The game also seemlessly switches from landscape to portrait mode when you tilt your device." - TouchArcade
