Internet BoulderDash resources

There have been many implementations of BoulderDash written for many different computers. I would like to list here the available implementations that you can ftp or otherwise obtain, any other BoulderDash oriented Web pages available. Please let me know of any BoulderDash Internet resources you know of not listed here.

In this document:


BoulderDash Web pages

These are web pages that discuss BoulderDash generally (or any commercial implementations), rather than specifc implementations listed below.

Non-commercial implementations of BoulderDash

As I don't have an Amiga/DOS box/whatever, I can't be sure that all of the following are actually BoulderDash implementations, and not merely games that resemble BoulderDash in some vague way. You tell me, and I'll remove it from the list if it's not "real" BoulderDash (whether exactly the same, or with extensions).

Amiga

Where's the nearest mirror of Aminet? You can also try WUSTL's Web copy of Aminet.

Commodore 64 or C64 emulators

The C64 emulator for the Mac isn't good enough to be able to run BoulderDash, so I haven't been able to examine these games very closely, nor to supply screenshots.

If there are any C64 versions of Boulder Dash that I don't know about, or if you have any more information about the versions listed below (such as author, release date, any other pertinent details) please let me know. Rumor has it that there are a large number of C64 implementations available (literally hundreds) but I'm yet to find someone who has them or has the time to convert them from C64 floppies (if they're still on floppies).
