Phew... pulling Boulder Dash is definetely an ultra-hard 
task for the VCS. 

I wish I could see the demo on a real TV. So it's hard 
to tell wether it'd be worth the effort.

- There's the flicker to consider.
- The scrolling
- The cropped playfield of only 12*x

The end result might become a perfect game like Dig Dug 
or a pile of crap like Mr. Do - or anything between :-)

Paradroid or Dino Eggs (Ha! I know you like these!) 
might be better fitting the VCS I think - but it'd 
certainly be interesting to see with what solutions 
you'd come up for Boulder Dash, too :-)
