I used to play this on the Amiga in 1989. This is a really good port of the game as far as gameplay and sounds. The only thing I noticed is that there is no music on the games first screen with the picture. On the Amiga version if you let it sit there, music would play. It was actually pretty awesome too. Please bring the music back for the full nostalgic effect.

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.
