Sure, why not: Boulder Dash making an XBLA appearance photo



Let's cut right to the chase: Boulder Dash is getting yet another revival. Xbox LIVE Arcade is the place, Q3 of this year is the time, and Catnip Games is the handler of development duties.

No screenshots were given out, but we did get a nice piece of Rockford art. On the off chance that the people who are making this game read this and are open to advice: guys, please don't go overboard with the art style. Less is more for these newly-updated old-school games, trust me.

Usually, I'm all about bringing enthusiasm to the table -- not this time, sadly. Boulder Dash is one of those games I don't have any fond memories of from my childhood. It was before my time, honest! So really, the most excitement I can muster up is "okay, sure."

Point Perfect makes clicking and dragging fun

There aren't too many games that can promise a "less is more" experience. Most of the time, games are trying to cram more and more features and controls to build a well-rounded experience. Point Perfect is a bit different; t...more
