This game is freeware and and it was written for the Syntax Bomb coding competition 6: https://www.syntaxbomb.com 

Important information for Mac users. When you have downloaded the zip file then you need to make sure you drag the app into the applications folder before running it else you may get a "game not found" error message when launching it.

If you are running OSX:Catalina then this game may report an issue stating that it is damaged and should be moved to the trash.

Due to a recent update from Apple regarding security, any zip file downloaded via the internet will cause an error when trying to run the enclosed app file.  The way to correct this is to extract the app from the zip file and then you can:

Open a Terminal window and type the following command:

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine and then leave a space, and then drag the .app file onto the Terminal window so the full path to the file is present. Once you press enter the fix will be applied and the game can then be run normally.

I give full permission to distribute anywhere and everywhere but I retain the copyright and reverse engineering the game is not acceptable.

Both PC and Mac versions are available


Cursor keys to move around the caves and Space bar with direction to kick a rock.


Full instructions are in the game menu.

Remake of a classic Vic 20 game from Mastertronic, 1984.

*** Update V1.01 now available for PC and Mac owners ***

Changes in V1.01:

Compiled with the native compiler rather than the interpreted language handler for optimisation purposes.
Fixed a small bug with the map code that made the player character appear on top of the map view.
Corrected an issue that could sometimes cause the player character to not spawn when revisiting the start map.
