I did it! I've always liked this kind of game. Was the original called Boulder Dash? A solid implementation and nice sounds :)

Nice job :) It's a little difficult to predict how rocks are going to fall when you move and that can end up causing some silly mistakes that just end up getting frustrating though :/

Ack! Got to the door, and it wouldn't open.

The game has good feel, and I like boulder dash type games. A digging sound effect would have been nice, as would some music. I though the opening level was maybe a little bit too hard also (I feel like the original didn't have impassable walls besides boulders). Overall the game is definitely playable! :)

Same with offwhitefox. Hard to predict where and how the rock will fall so I resort to trial and error. A really neat game though. I like puzzles like these.

I kinda miss the 'usual' beginner levels, where you learn about all the physics, like how rocks move etc... and I miss a "reset" key - always ESC and restarting after getting stuck aint fun.

Nice little game - I like puzzles. My only problem: the rocks seemed to fall in totally random or irrational ways. I could not intuit their manner of falling at all. That made for some frustrating gameplay.

Functional boulder dash clone. If I wasn't so accustomed to Supaplex and it's controls, still by far the best game of this genre, I'd enjoy it much more, this way I was getting constantly killed by boulders.

Good entry. It could have used: music / more sound variety, levels with ramping difficulty, reset key.
After I realized boulders can stay on my head until I move and (round) boulders will roll off one another if they can, I was able to beat it with some diligence :). It's a "fair" game once you know the mechanics, so the puzzles were very rewarding. Still, this would've been a better experience for all if there were some easy levels.

A bit frustrating and boring
