The Construction Kit Documantation is from the Original c64 Diskette version, Original provided by myself.
Rockford's the name, and underground mining's the game!..

not only does this pack contain the latest boulder dash game. but also an amazing construction kit that alloows you to design and play your very own caves and puzzles. so now, there is no limit to the fun you can have!
"there have been pale imitations - this is the original and best."
the objject of boulder dash is to search through caves and collect the indicated number oof diamonds in the time limit.@@ the way to solve the caves is usually very simple, but not on the first apparent. please read the description of the game elementts in the BCONSTRUCTION. KITB.TO.UNDERSTAND.MORE.ABOUT.THE. DIFFERENT.ASPECTS OF.THE.GAMEN.
once the game sectionhas finished loading you will be asked for a file name. type BGAME1B (this is a set of 16 pre-defined caves) or the name of the game you have created using the kit..
you can move your character, rockford,
you can then start the cave again. you are awarded an extra life every 500 points.
by using this part of the program you can create your own boulder dash caaves and intermissions. you can also make a complete game by using up to 64 screens in any order of caves and intermissions. these designs can be used with the boulder dash iv game.....
when editing for the first time you will be presented with a menu that gives you the choice of editing a current cave or intermission or creating a new one.... use the mouse or keys to move the pointer on the menu and click on the desired option.
along the top or side of the screen you will see a number of icons. reading from left to right their functions are described below (to select an icon press the left mouse button, on amiga and c64 just press fire in port 2)
BOULDER: the rocks will fall if unsupported and can be pushed if there are no objects in front of it. when selected place the game screen by moving the mouse (or joystick)@and press left button (or fire for c64 and amiga).
DIAMOND in every cave a certain number of diamonds need to be collected to win and to leave the cave.
ENCHANTED.WALL looks like any other wall exept when hit by an object it will "mill" for a certain time. during this time it will turn boulders into diamonds and vice versa.
WALL a regaular wall used to build spaces and paths. it can't be crossed by can be destroyed by explosions.
TITANIUM.WALL this wall is indestructible
GROWING.WALL if there are no obstacles next to it, this wall will grow into any free space....
EXTRA.ROCKFORD these won't move but you must protect them from beeing destroyed by boulders ect.
DIRT used as a filler. stops all objects exept rockford!
FIREFLIES they explode on contact killing rockford. they are destroyed by dropping boulders on them or by contact with amoeba.
BUTTERFLIES they behave as above except they produce diamonds when they explode.
this grows through dirt and unless confined (when it turn into diamonds) will eventually turn into boulders.
blocks rocks and diamonds to pas through....
this door looks like the titanium all and is obviously difficult to find...
this exit will be revealed as soon as the required number of diamonds have been collected...

this allows the player to link together different caves and intermissions. use the mouse or keys to select the caves and intermissions. after select y/n option to decide whether the player can access that cave from the main game. you can then save your sequence to disk.
a standard bould dash "game" consists of a total of 16 caves and 4 intermissions. the caves are made up of 4 tv screens of maze, ect. and this is where the player is rewarded with a "bonus game", the intermission. this is just a single screen where he/she can score extra points or lives. obviously using this kit, one can alter the number of caves and intermissions to any number of sequence.
