Diamond Caves 3 is based on the idea of
the classic C64 arcade game Boulder Dash (by Peter Liepa)
and the Amiga game Emerald Mine
(by Klaus Heinz and Volker Wertich). The main goal in
this game is to get out of a cave
using the blue exit. For the exit to open, you have
to collect a specific amount o Emeralds.
This can be quite tricky because you are not alone in
the cave, there are a few different
enemies as well as special items such as doors, keys,
acid pools, bombs & dynamite
and much more...
The game offers several 'Levelgroups', each holds
up to 99 caves. The first
time you start a Levelgroup (you enter the cave), you only have access to
the very first Level. Each time you
solve a Level, you get access to the next one (you descend deeper into the cave). And of
course there is a Highscorelist for
The unregistered version of Diamond Caves contains 50 Levels, seperated into two Levelgroups:The 34 Training Levels are simple Levels to introduce new players to every element of the gameThe 16 Emerald
Cave Levels are more difficult and tricky. For every of these 50 Levels there is a "replay file", a pre-recorded solution to the Level. You can watch this "replay-file" to see how the level is solved. You can even record your own progress and watch it later.
And then there is the Leveleditor to create your own caves and playfields. Check out the Levelgroup
page for more Levelgroups made by other Diamond Caves 3 players!
