I am on one of Boulder Dash games lovers.
I played this year many years ago in my childhood.
And still playing it from time to time.
Also, from time to time I am making this game on different languages just for fun.
Last thing I did was a online game editor. It allows you to build your own caves and levels, and finally export them as native snapshot ZX-Spectrum file (.SNA), so you can play it on ZX-Spectrum or any emulator.
Also, one of special feature of the editor: you are building caves using original approach by making lines of objects, rectangles of objects, and filled rectangles, because this is how caves are written in old 8-bit PC versions.
There are some cool features like:
- downloading png map of all caves
- saving and loading your progress
- exporting as test SNA file, where you have just one first cave, which is your last active cave in the editor.
- caves size has some limitation so editor check if you exceed them and gives proper warnings
Next step will be updating editor to export Commodore game.
