    Our first reviews from Pocket Gamer 7/10:
    "Although there’s a clear design to the puzzles in each level, with plenty of opportunities to crush, blow-up, or trap yourself, there are numerous routes to success, which adds an element of freedom and replayability."

    From 4/5:
    "it brings a classic game back as a mobile experience"

    "a classic game from the 80s with graphics that bring to our mind those nostalgic times"

    And from Mobile Place (in Croatian):
    "a definitve must have for folks who grow up on Atari and Commodore"

    From Game Pro:
    "The game supports leaderboards and achievements thanks to OpenFeint, and can be played either with or without a timer. If you're after a head-scratching puzzle game that's just as fresh today as it was in the mid-80s, Boulder Dash is well worth your time."

    November 10, 2011:
