Recommended Posts

Whew!  Time for a break.  I actually had to switch joysticks.  Started to get glitchy going up.  Burned through a Best Supply rebuilt stick in one day of hard use.  Here's what I've completed so far:

 

A1 through P1

A2 through M2

good going :thumbsup: (not the stick!)

I'll try some of the levels on the higher speeds, but I've found that if you walk away from the game for a day or two, you have to "re-learn" the levels.  Ugh...

 

EDIT:  Finished A2 and B2.

just wing it!

I managed 98 diamonds on B/1.

 

I also somehow solved C/1 though I thought I would be one diamond short. I also figured out D/1 but too late so I ran out of time, so I can't claim I finished that level yet.

Here's a little trick on C1 (I think it was C1!) - get the top of the two diamonds above the firefly in the botton left corner, then go round and grab the earth from the right side of him and move away R, the diamond falls and he is ringed in mid air!

 

You should beat D, then you get the bonus life screen and are away, E is fairly easy, use the grab!

Game just makes me mad and frustrated. I'll play once in awhile, but not getting anywhere. 

General tips

You've definitely got to be in the right mood for BD, if anyone's not tried the 25th aniv ver then see try it, it might be a bit slicker?, also could try level 2 where the movement is faster. Most deaths are by sudden small movements and something rolls onto you. Try and always run away to safety after each action or end on an up or a horizontal movement into clear space or into fresh earth, or try just going for it and keep moving. Learning to ring the fireflies and butterfiles makes the game much easier or just block them in. Practice the ringing on Cave A, you can ring them on the strip of earth in the boxes they start very easily or in the clear earth on the right of the wall you need to break through.2113453705_Ringem.png.8a39b6f484fe83f4801e0933718ea470.png

I shoulda played this game before i voted for it. :(

Stuck on the first cave.

Leave it on screen and watch the demo mode, it shows you how to do A1 - plus there is a description on Post #42 from carlsson :thumbsup: 42 is the answer of course :o

Final score: 45,680.

Well I've been playing all day with a big break inbetween sessions (and to take the cats out)  and it took some doing and a serious adrenalin rush when I was down to 1 life mid level 5 but I COMPLETED BOULDERDASH II !! (A1-P5) It does continue on A5 again so it does not end or have any message but that was a good point to stop. Level 5 later screens that are usually trickier seemed easier than level 4, not sure why they didn't change cave "O" around a bit it was the same on all 5 skill levels. Managed to master most of the bonus screens and some better ways of doing most of the screens, caves like G and L are my favourites. Great fun but it takes some effort!

 

Final Score  65,036 (A1-P5) :-o

Cave B1 Diamond Challenge 110 out of 111 possible diamonds!

Ok, I finished E/1 (no chance at all on the bonus level between D and E) but only managed some 25-26 diamonds on F/1 so didn't finish that one.

 The round is OVER! trbb picked up the win with oracle_jedi putting up some stiff competition to take runner-up spot. MagicMarc-er held off RedThunder for 3rd place on the podium. Thanks for playing everyone, I really enjoyed BDII and played for hours on end, even when I died on the silos many times I still wanted to get more diamonds and have another go. For those who don't like the game just give it a few more goes, once you sync with the timing and the right joystick it's a very good game indeed. If you find the movement too slow try playing on skill level 2 or 3. Now let's see what we're doing for round 6 :grin:
