I tried in Steem - after very long wait (depacking?) it started. And I could "play" - if it can be played at all. Really pathetic. What to shoot, how to play when it just moves left-right and falls. Then I pressed space - and crash. That was best and for me last moment with this ...
never been able to get this to work on my STe :(
alguien sabe como ejecutarlo, tengo el emulador Hatari V2.0 pero no me deja ejecutarlo
A 16-bit update of the 8-bit game Buried Buck$, later re-released as Chopper Hunt by Imagic on the Atari XL/XE and C64. The music is a rendition of 'Midnight In Tula', the 2nd track from White Eagle by Tangerine Dream in 1982. :)
There is an official english translation of this.
Looks nice, plenty of levels and enemies. But it is just way too hard. Needs probably 200 instead 2 lives to finish :-) Part of difficulty lies in laggy controls of hero.
No problem, I haven't found an actual original version among the cracks either though, only homebrew. Peter Putnik had also a version on his site which reconstructs the original with the Construction Kit release, maybe that's also were the Youtube stuff is from.

Interestingly, the game was reviewed by a German ST magazine, ST-Computer (http://stcarchiv.de/stc1991/10/relax-aktuelle-spiele). The article doesn't mention anything specific about the ST version and the author was known for writing lots of reviews of Amiga and ST games so it's not clear whether he really had the Atari one.
To my knowledge it was the other way round: Exidy licensed the original from First Star. The Exidy Arcade version is based on the Atari 8bit version.
There was yet another version later by Data East running on the DECO hardware - that's were the screenshot is actually from.
The cover of the Wicked version in the other entry looks to be just for the Construction Kit, makes me wonder if the original BD was really released for the ST.
You're absolutely right. Thanks for the correction. My 8bit Atari knowledge is very limited. There should be an original Boulder Dash release too for ST. At least on YouTube there's one and i've seen some cracks too. Wicked EDOS scan was on the wrong entry, thanks for spotting it too :)
