Rocks 'n' Diamonds

Rocks 'n' Diamonds for some Friday puzzle-game fun. Described as "in the tradition of" Boulderdash and Sokoban, it's actually a superset of both, and you can waste tons of time playing all the old familiar levels or tons of others. (It's a quick download, for linux/os x/the other thing.)

(It's been around for a while, to say the least, but it was happy news to me, and I couldn't find any previous mention on MetaFilter.)

This is fun, Wolfdog. I'm glad I took the plunge and obeyed the little box from the strange website when it said, "to install, simply copy the folder to your hard disk"

Seriously though, for anyone worried, it's a great game.

What, you mean the BeOS build? OS/2? AmigaOS?

Great stuff. Lucky I gave up Nethack again this week.

His Mirror Magic is also excellent (although it looks like no one has built a version of that one for Mac OS X yet).

I hadn't seen this game in a long time. This and the abovementioned Mirror Magic were pretty popular on our Linux lab machines when I was a sysadmin.

We port, you decide.

I've had this for a while; it's great for playing sweet sweet Emerald Mines without having to fire up an Amiga emulator.

Ah, reminds me of hours spent in the elementary school's C64 lab. Good times, good times.
