Wasn't this an NES game at some point? As I recall the AVGN called attention to the Bible games that ripped it off.
I bet this is a remake... couldn't find trailer on yt
edit: hello ninja
mans there's a shitload of shovelware coming out for the DS around new years....
OMG...when I first saw "Crystal Mines" I thought..
is this a DS Port to the Apogee Classic game "Crystal Caves?!"
I wished it was a game where you would mine deeper and deeper for ores, not with stupid levels and robots.
Yeah. And a shitload of useless comments as well. Live with it.
Torus is bringing the Crystal Mines IP back for a brand new DS game. The series initially started off as an unlicenced NES title. It did well enough for a sequel to be made for the Lynx - dooming it to obscurity. Crystal Mines is heavily influenced by Boulder Dash (which has also seen a rebirth on DS), but its unique additions made it a much deeper experience.
Judging by those screenshots and the fact that this involved virtually no original thought at all, I'd say this took them about a fortnight to put together.
wow that rly look sooooo.... crap >_>
nothing new there's been a shitload of sw all year!
So it's kind of like bejewled and dig-dug combined.
is it a balder dash clone?
If so that "genre" of games is pretty good
I actually played this game to death on my old Lynx II.
I preferred it to Balder Dash, had a lot more variables in it, and a tonne of levels too, might have to check this out to see if it still holds up.
8 Mb but the size has nothing to say
the game tht has made mining really addictive is minecraft... this is more for nostalgia it would seem
its not a boring game but kinda doesnt seem like it has the luster (get it?)
Never played the original as I never had a NES. IIRC I was rocking the Speccy/Atari800 at the time. I have to say this is a pleasant surprise. I played the hell outa Boulderdash and this is interesting spin on the gameplay. Early levels don't really grab you but by the 7th starts getting tricky. Definitely worth a look if you are an old fart and enjoyed rockford's past adventures. I prefer the retro gfx/sound settings as you can see more of the playfield.
Edit: Looks like there's bags of content. The level select screens goes up to 264. Dunno whether that's on par with the original.
Looks like MotheLoad a bit.
Well it can't be worse than 999.
Gonna take dudereno's word and give it a go.
looks like boulder dash, I liked it on the NES.
The levels are from the original LYNX version of "Crystal Mines II" (181 Levels) and the levels in the "Buried Treasures" expansion pack (about 130 Levels), making the total level number of 311.
