ROCK HOPPER is an arcade/strategy game in which Freddy (you), the small yellow hopper, has entered a system often caves to plunder all the treasures within. The caves are highly unsafe and you must beware of falling rocks and (in later levels) poisonus snakes. A rock will only fall if it has been disturbed. As you move you eat away the ground that surrounds you and you have to be careful not to trap yourself. You can fall from any height and to finish the board you must collect all the flashing treasures, before your time runs out.

To move Freddy use the cursor keys or a joystick. If Freddy gets stuck in a position which he cannot get out of you can start the board again by pressing CTRL + A (abort) - this also causes you to loose a life. (You start with three and get an extra one for every board you complete.)

Other keys are:

  • CTRL + G to end the current game.
  • CTRL + B tochoose a board. (1 -10 or 99) see BOARD DESIGNER
  • CTRL + L to load in a board, see board designer
  • CTRL + H to see a summary of the keys & functions.
  • CTRL + D to see a demo
  • CTRL + N to reset the computer.
Board Designer

This program is used to design your own boards to load into Rock Hopper.

Using the cursor keys to move the cursor and keys 1-5 to place objects, you can design your own boards. Once loaded into Rock Hopper you can play the board by pressing CTRL + B then typing 99. A little thought has to go into the design of the board as it is easy to make one impossible to finish.

Happy Hopping!

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
