Hello everyone,

Last week my son saw me watching a video of Arno playing Boulder Dash (BD).
He was impressed by this 'old' game.
I explained to him BD was one of my favourite games when I was his age.
He was very impressed by the game design, because he knew the 80' was the stone age in terms of technology.
He wants to play, but the game seems too complicated to him.

As an electrical engineer, my hobby is programming.
So i decided to make an accessible version of Boulder Dash for my son.
I want to reproduce the entire Boulder Dash game design without the scrolling (the entire game board should be visible on the screen).
Thus it will be more accessible for my children (aged 5 and 12).
As a hobby it would take me about 1 or 2 months to do so.
I want to share my progress on this forum.

I know there are already some people who have done this kind of project (write the game in javascript).
But as i said, programming is a hobby and i want to do it from scratch.

Please check the first step of my work (100% of the code are mine, minus jQuery and Howler.js [sound library]) :

http://demo.diamondcraft.nanogenesis.xyz/

At this stage, it is like 18% of the entire project (code name Diamond Craft), 1 or 2 months could be enough to remake the entire game.

The next steps (~1 week of work):

- Add score in the game
- Falling Boulder can kill Rockford
- Exit to Stage 2

Hello CWS,

It is not intended to be played on iPad.
Actually i can make it to be compatible with iPad.
But because of the original gameplay, it won't be very pleasant to play on touchscreen. It would be a very bad experience.
