Author's Description: Rock 'n' Spin is a game in the same style as Repton 3 or Boulderdash. You guide an Emu around in a tile-based map, collecting all the diamonds and avoiding falling rocks and rampant spinners.

The editor has now been released! Click the link above to download it!

- Animated rendered graphics (mostly)
- 8 different graphical themes
- 30 levels - 3 in each theme, plus 6 multicoloured
- Nice sound effects
- 11 pieces of music, all of them cheesy!
- When you die, the game will replay your moves until you take over - so you don't have to do the entire level again
- Table of who completed each level fastest, plus a replay of how it was done
- Demonstrative instructions (not just pages of text)
- 2 resolutions - 320x240 and 640x480

Oh, and another thing - the game is now FREE :-) Hmm... well it has been for a while. Yep. It's also provided in a single pre-registered installation program now, instead of the five separate files and registration instructions formerly available.

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 8.5
  • 8An emu-based Boulderdash clone. Collect diamonds, make boulders fall and solve puzzles. You can really get into this game. Nicely polished with nice music, but I still like the original Boulderdash better.
  • 10This game was great. I used to love playing boulderdash type games. I hope the 3d one will get finished someday too.
  • 10I found this game extremely addictive. The graphics are great and the puzzles really get you thinking.
The Developer
Bruce Perry
Bruce PerryA game developer at heart, I have been writing games with Allegro since 1999, and I have unfinished projects aplenty to show for it. I care very much about the quality of my games and what people think of them, so please do leave opinions on this site or send comments to me. I graduated from Cambridge University UK in Computer Science in June 2004. I did Geology in my first year there, which was fun. I took French A-level at school, and as of summer 2003 I am learning Japanese by self-study (while trying not to forget my French). I used to study art, and I still try my hand at it from time to time. I play the piano and compose music. As of August 2004 I am working as a Mini-Games Developer for a very nice company in Cambridge. (View Profile)
