Most of you are aware that I'm currently building up a Youtube collection of the most insane BD caves from BD history. My intension is to add a cave to this collection if it:
- contains a unique/original idea, or
- the solution is fun to watch, or
- requires insane player skills, or
- has a beautiful design (layout, theming, colours, pixel arts, etc.), or
- otherwise makes me want to remember that cave.

The majority of the caves that are currently in the collection were created at Krissz' BD site. However, I've also added some caves from C64 games after rebuilding those at Krissz' site.
This way, I have gone / will go through the following games/series:
- Brain Delicacy (Dr. Guru, C64) [done]
- Sendy Dash 1-3 (Sendy, C64) [done]
- Boulder Dash Plus 1-3 (Matthias Steiner, C64) [done]
- Rockfort, Dustin's BD and other games by Dustin (GDash) [in progress]
- The Lost Caves (Schlonkel, C64) [to do]

Question to you:
Do you remember any BD games or series which I should definately check as well? I know there are many many BD games and I won't have time to check out all caves individually. So I'd like to use your memory if possible. If you remember any game (or individual cave) from the old days with the creativity/insanity of the listed games, and should be in the "ultimate collection", please let me know! Very Happy

What about Don Pedro's games?
I'm just studying his cave maps and playing some of his caves again and I think some specific caves are quite great/interesting! I'm even thinking about a remake game with working 5L. As far as I've checked, his caves aren't yet on his site. I've made a little list of caves that wouldn't fit into 5L versions for my potential remake but are still interesting. What if I did the job of transferring those to Krissz's site myself?! Very Happy

Alright, I'll do 5,6,7, and 9 then! Very Happy Not all caves, though, but those which I find most interesting.

Thanks for the suggestion! Smile

Some time ago Krissz made a start with importing Don Pedro's caves (search for 'don pedro' in the database), but he stopped after BD5 already. I don't know why, perhaps becuase some caves, like cave P, had a very slow speed. And cave E was unsolvable because at Krissz' site the time seems to run faster.... Smile
