HamsterJam (a.k.a. Rockman)
The behavior of boulders and existence of skulls and mice give HamsterJam a unique and challenging gameplay that is quite different from Boulderdash. Boulders will roll off other boulders, rings and skulls if there is nothing to the side that hold them in place. They may sometimes split into two if they fall and land on other boulders. In addition, there are skulls that block your way and are deadly to the touch; they can only be destroyed with rings if you have collected enough of them. You must also run away from the mice, or turn them into jam by dropping a boulder on top of them. Each room has a time limit, so you must be quick on your toes.
Freeware coders at Ovine by Design have done a great job converting this 8-bit underdog for Windows. The levels and gameplay remain the same, but now are more attractive than ever with the addition of SVGA graphics and sound effects. The interface is very intuitive, and the animations are very smooth. A good mix of arcade and puzzle fun, HamsterJam comes highly recommended to anyone who loves Repton or Boulderdash games.
