Details has a GPLed clone of Boulder Dash. No idea if it's any good, but it looks like it might be relatively easy to port to Rockbox.

Probably best to start by e-mailings the clone author to check legal issues (graphics/levels).

linuxstb has first dibs :-)
This task depends upon

I hate to admit it, but Xciting Xcavations should be Exciting Excavations

Comment by Alex Parker (BigBambi) - Tuesday, 18 March 2008, 18:31 GMT
Yes, clearly we know that Xciting Xcavations is really spelled Exciting Excavations, but it was changed to use X in a failed attempt to find one to start with X.

Rocksprint. Clearly this preserves the general feel of the old naming, while simultaneously meeting the much reviled desire by many to name our plugins either Rockfoo or BarBox.
