Famed sound studio Gem Impact delivers the music and sound effects for Boulder Dash®-ROCKS!™

Darmstadt, November 8th 2007 - Rockford rocks! And for good reason, as developer 10TACLE STUDIOS MOBILE and co-publisher First Star Software, Inc. were able to win over famed Japanese sound studio Gem Impact Inc to do the music in his exciting new hunt for diamonds, the same studio that delivered the sounds for titles such as "Metal Gear Solid" and "Yakuza 2". In addition to the theme song, which shows definite signs of becoming a true earworm, Gem Impact Inc composed all of the in-game music. These freshly-composed sounds add the finishing touch to First Star Software's much-loved cult classic's new outfit and is destined to get more than just Rockford rockin' starting November 22nd 2007!

This tricky puzzle and dexterity game made its debut in the early 80s and continues to fascinate its enormous fan base and new players decades later. Today the game is recognized as one of the best loved retro games in the history of computer and video gaming. Now Boulder Dash® is back with a hot new look to take the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP platforms by storm. The hit game's principle remains unchanged: the player has to collect sparkling diamonds while avoiding numerous traps, besting hordes of opponents, and of course, falling boulders.

In addition to the classic single-player mode taking players through different game worlds, Boulder Dash®-Rocks! offers a multi-player mode and three additional play modes for a total of five different modes of play. These include two new game modes custom designed for the different platforms, modes never seen before in a Boulder Dash® game.
