The Return Of Rockman

Quick everybody, Rockman's back. Hurrah!! Wait a minute, who the hell is Rockman? Well, he is a little character who looks slightly like Rockford, of Boulder Dash.

Yes, Rockman looks like Rockford, and the game looks like Boulder Dash. Now for those who are not familiar with the scenario - and why not - here is a quick rundown.

You, as Rockman, must complete each level of the game, collecting precious jewels. You must quickly plan the safest route to collect them and lead you to the exit.

It all sounds too easy but there are other things to contend with such as falling rocks, holes, bows and radioactive waste.

On the whole this game is too much like Boulder Dash. It tries to copy it and falls flat on its face, after all Rockman's not nearly as cute as old Rockford.
