Since its inception in the early years of the computer game industry in the early 80s, the underground search for diamonds found in Boulder Dash has made it one of the most loved, published and licensed games in the past two decades. 10Taclt Studios has signed an agreement with First Star Software to bring the dexterity-puzzle game to NDS and PSP.

10TACLE Studios Managing Director Alexandra Gerb, “With “Boulder Dash®” we are proud to be able to continue one of the oldest and most famous brands in computer games. The tried and true concept has already delighted generations of computer, video game and coin-operated arcade gamers, and now we want to give the brand our own accent by adding a number of innovations designed to take advantage of the capabilities these new platforms have to offer. We want to lend protagonist Rockford™'s adventures a fresh, modern style to get him into shape for the years to come.”

“Recently, the brand was successfully implemented for mobile phones, PDA’s and online platforms”, said First Star Software President Richard M. Spitalny, “and we are happy to see 10Tacle Studios' promising new concepts bring the popular action-puzzle game to new target groups using current handheld consoles and the latest technologies.”
