The 1983 Atari classic Boulder Dash, which has seen ports and various versions on practically every platform imaginable, is coming to iOS by way of Boulder Dash XL, Joystiq has learned. Originally released on Xbox Live Arcade last year, Boulder Dash XL is a modern take on the original game that saw you digging your way through caves and avoiding being crushed by boulders, but with a fancy coat of graphical paint applied.
If you were keen on the original back in the day or you've enjoyed the XBLA release, you can look forward to Boulder Dash XL coming equipped with 5 game modes and 100 levels across 4 worlds. There are two playable characters, including the original Rockford, and if the XBLA version is anything to go by it should be quite a looker on iOS. Expect Boulder Dash XL to hit "soon" at a price of $2.99.
