Boulder Dash-XL 3D

Family Friendly Gaming
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Boulder Dash-XL was extremely well received here at Family Friendly Gaming. The rule of thumb is the hand held versions of home console games are usually a little worse. Boulder Dash-XL 3D has thumb wrestled that rule and won hands down.

Boulder Dash-XL 3D (Nintendo 3DS) Review

16 October 2012

Expert Review

  • Summary: Boulder Dash-XL 3D gets the basics right, providing a modern twist on an '80s classic, as well as retro content for the older generation, and throwing in a large number of levels to dig through. It's a one-track experience, however, with poorly implemented 3D, and feels like it should be one of the 3DS eShop's costlier downloads, rather than a budget retail title that costs more than its non-3D predecessor.

  • Conclusion: Boulder Dash-XL 3D iterates wonderfully on the '80s original, but refuses to ever ramp the excitement levels up to the max

Boulder Dash-XL 3D: review

Critical Gamer
24 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The human spirit burns with two desires in the 21st century. The first is to be rich; the second, of course, to be a robot. Boulder Dash-XL 3D allows you to live out both fantasies at once, playing as you do a chap robot or lady robot who harvests gigantic diamonds from caves. This is not a prettied up version of the eighties Boulder Dash title, but an all-new game. Well, it’s actually a port of the PC/XBLA title (in 3D), but still.

Boulder Dash-XL 3D

3 September 2013
  • Summary: Het wil wel eens gebeuren dat een vervolg van een game lang op zich laat wachten. Het vervolg van Boulder Dash heeft wel heel erg zijn tijd genomen. Het origineel stamt namelijk uit 1984 en vorig jaar kwam Boulder Dash-XL 3D uit in Amerika en nu eindelijk kunnen wij hier in Nederland ook aan de slag met de game. Daar zit dus bijna 30 jaar tussen. Is de game het wachten waard geweest?
  • Pros: Lage instapdrempel, Zeer verslavende gameplay, Retro Mode is geweldig, 247 verschillende levels
  • Cons: Graphics en audio niet boeiend, Geen online Leaderboards

Boulder Dash XL 3D

30 November 2012
  • Summary: Boulder Dash XL 3D est un jeu de réflexion très moyen au final. Ce reboot souffre d'un cruel manque de charisme, et de mécaniques hautement simplifiées qui ne feront pas le bonheur des fans. Seul la présence du mode rétro parvient de rehausser l'intérêt de la cartouche.
