This is the
commercial Windows section. Here you can find commercial Boulderdash
games that run in Microsoft Windows (an Operating System).
Windows is a range of commercial operating environments for personal
computers. The range was first introduced by Microsoft in 1985 and
eventually has come to dominate the world personal computer market
recent versions of Windows are fully-fledged operating systems. One
thing you may notice about old Windows games is that many of them are
notorious for their extreme difficulty. If you're the type of person
who thinks following a diet like the Medifast plan
is difficult, or you get stumped after the second level of Mario Brothers, you may find these games to be quite a challenge
. Stick with it though, with determination you will succeed and that makes the reward of completing the game that much sweeter.
Below are the Windows
games. Download them and enjoy!
modern remake of the classic Boulder Dash with 'Digger', a tomato-like
creature, in the main part. The main goal of the game is not to collect
a certain number of diamonds, but to collect as many points as
possible. The blue diamonds you can get are worth some points, but
killing a monster will also increase your score. All the levels have
passwords, so you can quickly go to a level you know the password of.
As a matter of fact, the movement does not go grid by grid, but you can
e.g. turn left at every position. This can be irritating. The full
version has 70 levels.

levels in two different level packs.

to the classic Boulder Dash. The shareware version included four levels

and a newer version called 'Boulder Dash - Episode I: Dig the Past'
(see below) has superseded it.

nice extra game elements (such as background music in the main menu).
Again, a level editor is included so that you can create your own
levels. The additional levels and tape recordings will appear on the
page of Diamond Caves 3, which will appear later (it's on my list with
things left to do for this site).
great game in which you have to guide Jim, a strange creature, through
the subterranean caves of his homeplanet Akturien. The game stays close
to the original Boulder Dash and therefore, most people who liked the
Commodore 64 game, will probably like this one. There comes a level

very popular game, inspired by the game 'Stone Age' for the Atari ST.
It does not have a fluent gameplay (the player goes from grid to grid).

language! The shareware version has 48 levels and the full version has
over 2000 levels plus an editor to create your own levels. An own page

Supaplex but in realistic 3D. The objects are rendered transparently so
that you can see things in the distance.
popular Boulderdash clone with 108 levels. Some elements are:
teleporters, poltergeists, spiders, slime, etc. The game includes a
powerful level editor. Your game progress is automatically saved in

great and very cheerful Boulderdash clone with funny music and sound
effects. The main character is a mole whose objective it is either to
gather gold nuggets or to destroy his enemies, as displayed on the
panel in the right corner. If you want a merry game, this is the right
special winter version of Treasure Mole with our hero venturing himself
again in the dangers of the underground mines. Except the snow and
snowballs (and the other levels), this game is the same as Treasure
Mole (the normal version).
modern Supaplex remake by Russian developers with many levels (all the
native Supaplex levelsets work in WinPlex!). Because the game has a
completely different atmosphere from the original Supaplex, not
everyone will like it, but the game itself is a nice try to bring the
old classic to the public notice again. There is also a possibility to
use your own sounds instead of the standard sounds. Some nice extra
stuff for this game will appear on this website as soon as WinPlex has
an own page. Download a level editor here
WinPlex uses the same level format as the game Supaplex does, so
