Rocks and diamonds

Anything AMIGA related deserves 5 stars - especially this all time classic.

Can anyone help with the following related - but much larger game? I wish I had the knowledge to port this to mobile devices
Google rocks and diamonds for a Free, non-mobile game including Emerald Mine (just a small part of the entire web page/forum/levels download area). R&D includes an amazing game level/custom element maker. Also download the great 3-D ish "Bd2K3" levels.

Great game!

This is a cool little game. With so many levels it could keep you glued to the screen for hours. It reminds me of a game called Rockman. The only real difference is that if you also walk u der neath the gems and stay for too long, they fall and crush you as well as the rocks.

I strongly advise anyone who likes running around huge screens collecting gems to get this fantastic little game.

Awesome APP!!!

Ohh man, this brings me back to the Amiga days!!! Makes me regret selling my Amiga.. Wish there were more Amiga games available for the ipad.. The controls are hard to get used to.. Instead of using the standard buttons for controls (a = left, d = right, w = up, s = down) the down button is x.. Makes it that much harder to control.. but otherwise a great game!!
