Any reader of Zzap! will know about the little stick person, Rockford, cavorting about in the margins. In this, Melbourne House's conversion of their own arcade game (under the Arcadia banner), he has a more human form, but holds on to the style of play found in Boulder Dash.
Rockford, in his new shape, must travel to far locations to retrieve lost treasures, from the hidden land of El Dorado to the cold blackness of outer space (Oooh!) - one of five quests may be selected on the opening page.
All the nasties of the original Boulder Dash series are here, depicted in a separate graphic style for each location (for example, the rocks of the original are planets in space). If Rockford collects enough treasure, he can leave the location and travel elsewhere.
