This is an almost 20 year anniversary reboot of a game I originally wrote in Delphi (remember that?), now ported to AGK2 Tier 1.

Minezel is a retro puzzle game. The aim is to collect all of the diamonds in each of the game's levels, whilst avoiding falling rocks, monsters and other obstacles.

Released on itch.io (link above) as a free download.

There are 20 levels in this version. Hopefully more to come soon.

Thanks Cliff, PSY.

I'm a big fan of those old 80's games: Boulder Dash and Repton. I don't think I ever played Emerald Mine though, I'll have to look that one up. I like how you can construct quite complex puzzles with seemingly very simple game mechanics. Its accessible, but can still get very challenging. The game currently has 20 levels split over two level "packs". I have modernised some elements - e.g. there is a health bar now rather than just the insta-death of those games. Only falling rocks still cause instant death now. And its possible to unlock multiple levels at once (depending on the difficulty setting), so progression is not completely linear.

Although it's a complete game as it is, I'm currently working on a level editor and more level packs.

Played Emerald Mine on the Amiga 500. You really need to check it out

I regularly play games from the 80ies. Ready Player One

You're right about the puzzles. I made a Boulder Dash remake in Blitz3D back in 2016. The thing I loved most was to create the levels

Great !!
It's a good job, a good start!
Work your animations, put some color !!!
it reminds me of my Diam Diam game almost 20 years ago ... on DBPro
I won second place at a retro compo !!
he walks under windows, if you want you can test it and even get inspired!
There are the tutorials and the table editor
Warning, under windows 10, the window of the game does not close, you have to go close in the task manager !
I do what i do !!!
