Move the boulders and collect the diamonds.

 

Collect all the diamonds to move to the next level.

 

Press fire button to retry the level.

 

Can you finish all 50 levels?

Thank you once again for your incredible generosity to the community. You should consider contacting CollectorVision to have all your games assembled onto a MegaCart PCB and offered in CIB form.

Amazing!  Thank you!  I have posted about this in the ColecoVision Lunatics, CollectorVision Phoenix, and AtariAge Facebook groups!

Fun and challenging.  It reminds me of the old DOS game PAGANITZU.

 

Thank you

Wow - thank you.  I love these type of puzzle games as they provide a nice relaxing alternative to all the frantic shooters.

 

Reminded me of a homebrew Commodore 64 game that I'm currently playing "Millie and Molly" (currently on level 75), which I have now discovered was itself inspired by the mid 80's game Catrap which was known as Pitman in Japan.  Is your Pitman a port/conversion of the original Catrap/Pitman with the same levels?

Encountered a strange graphical glitch on the title screen using the CoolCV emulator.  Tried it on blueMSX and ColEm with no issues.

Thanks so much for all of your games... These gifts are so very much appreciated!

 

This game is like a mixture of Lode Runner and Boulder Dash, with Digger thrown into the mix. Fabulous!

Yes, I got the same thing occasionally when playing on the Atarimax as well. Fun game though.

I don't see the glitch in Argon (phew!). Plays fine!

 

@Under4MHZ is on fire... How many is that this year?!?

Wow - and Under4MHZ has also ported the game to the ZX Spectrum.  I wish I was even half that productive 😩  I guess I'm too easily distracted by reading posts on AA and watching YouTube videos 😁

Awesome! Love me some Boulder Dash, which this reminds me a lot of and that's definitely not a bad thing. Definitely looking forward to trying this out. 👍

Thanks for sharing!

Great game and thanks for sharing it. Remindful of Boulder Dash. Even has some of the same sounds. Currently on level 30 but I have to admit that I haven't figured out level 20 yet. I like that you can skip around to different levels if you want and not have to start over. Excellent.

Good to know. I thought it was an original game. Either way, it's still fun.

Tried Catrap for GameBoy on MESS. While a good game on GameBoy, I prefer the ColecoVision version.
