Remember Boulder Dash? The 1984 classic has been released several times over the years and now comes to Nintendo Switch in the Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection!
ININ Games and BBG Entertainment are releasing the boxed Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection in Europe this week, with the game available for Nintendo Switch through selected retailers on February 18th.
In Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection, you head into dangerous caves and dig through sand to manipulate the environment, avoiding falling boulders and using them against various enemies. Along the way, collect gems and bonuses to reach even tougher levels.

- More than 400 newly designed levels across two games
