Description (by MrFlibble)

This is a very clever variation on the Boulder Dash formula where you need to solve puzzles by moving around a robot and collecting items, while various objects bloc your way and must be rearranged so that the path is clear. This involves but is not limited to taking apart stacks of stone balls, strategically blowing up explosives, using teleporters and so on. If anything falls on top of the robot or if it's caught in an explosion, you'll have to restart the level; however, there is no time limit to solve any given puzzle.

Unlike some other Boulder Dash clones, each level/puzzle takes up one screen. The graphics are pre-rendered but look nice, even though there's some odd colour dithering applied to the sprites. The music and sound effects are pretty good and give off a futuristic vibe.

There are 20 levels in the shareware version making up a complete zone called Cyberium (not related to Tiberium). The full registered game has four zones and 80 levels. Additionally, a separate collection of levels for kids was also available.
