Supaplex was originally released on the Amiga, Atari ST, and DOS platforms in the early 1990s. The Boulderdash clone has now received a ZX Spectrum 128k conversion thanks to Transman and Triumph Game Labs. The main character, Murphy, replaces Rockford, who must collect Infotrons instead of the familiar diamonds, and instead of the familiar dirt found in Boulderdash, Supaplex‘s levels consist of printed circuit boards and lined with computer chips and other hardware.
Although a clone of Boudlerdash, Supaplex has a number of different elements, including bugs (parts of the base that randomly cause life threatening electrostatic discharges), Ports (which limit Murphy’s movement to specific directions), and terminals (set off explosive floppy disks). And watch out for the enemies: Snik Snaks (moving scissors) and electrons (sparkling stars). The Gamecard (with game details and downloads) can be found at the World of Spectrum website.
