A remake of the legendary classic "Boulder-dash" type Atari DOS game. Dodge falling boulders, avoid exploding grenades, and solve extremely challenging puzzles in your quest to get all the hearts! Expect to be challenged in ways you can't even imagine!

Heartlight is a puzzle game originally developed by Janusz Pelc for 8-bit Atari in 1990. In 1994, an MS-DOS port (Heartlight PC) was published by Epic Megagames along with two other games by Janusz Pelc in the Epic Puzzle Pack.

The game is set up on a 12x20-square grid. Some of the levels make full use of the space, others fill unused space with a moving background. The game is played as from the side (unlike some bird-eye-view puzzle games), with gravity playing an important part.

The object of the game is to help Percival, the elf character you guide with your keyboard, collect all the hearts on each level and get to the door. Different objects with unique characteristics aim to make reaching this goal more complex.

Basic objects you will see on almost every level include bombs, rocks, and hearts. While hearts are one of the goals, they can also fall on and kill Percival. Bombs blow up when squashed or dropped on a hard surface. Rocks squash Percival and can blow up bombs. There are several other objects that you come across while playing the game, and the only way to learn about them is to experiment. Several kinds of walls and empty space also have unique properties that must be tested.

Heartlight has been compared to other popular puzzle games such as Boulder Dash and Supaplex.

So glad I found it! I've thought about this game for years and am so thrilled to find it! However the dpad will randomly stop working and I have to restart the game over and over. Frustrating, but not enough to make me stop playing. The dpad really sucks though, and makes the game much harder simply because it doesn't respond well.

Level 21 is evil Love it ... but level 21 is impossible. Quit playing bc I can't pass it even after watching the cheat video. Ugh.

Teresa Filson

have looked for this game for long time. use of skill and mind is thr only way to beat this game.

Nicely made but the dpad keeps becoming completely unresponsive and needs complete game restart.

Needs improvement Controls are bad and there are bugs in physics engine with boulders standing in the air.

Slow controls Its exactly like i remember it on the computer in the 90's however on my phones touch screen its not as quick as using the 'ol directional keys which for me makes the gameplay slow. Maybe if u could tweak it a little ill rate it 5

James Smith

Heartlight This is a brilliant puzzle game that is ruined by a rigid control scheme. It becomes unplayable in the timed segments of the game. Please make more intuitive controls. Thanks.

Sonia Helena

A Google User

Mark Gatch

Good but controls need work Locked up and would not move.

A Google User

Excellent! But the controls are very frustrating on occasion especially on time critical levels but a great port.

A Google User

Fun Just like the original game!

A Google User

Awesome! Plays just like I remember it, great on the Nexus 7.

Crashed my tablet I must turn off my tablet, because app launcher stops working! Immediately unistalled, after tablet starts.

James Trinklein

Terrible controls I would love this game if I could get past the controls, but I can't, they're just terrible.

A Google User

Awesome game. Awesome game. I remember it from 20 years ago and what a great time I had trying to beat it. Here I go again with this great time waster.

A Google User

Ad interferes w gameplay. Gameplay basic but not mature. Keep working on it.

Shawn Meilicke

Fun for awhile The game is fun but the controls are not easy to use on an s4. Sliding too much to the left makes me hit the back button, and too far to the right causes a click on the ad, and I feel that I slide off the e-dpad too easily and find myself dying because it fails to register a change in direction on time.

Love the concept I give 2stars for the controls, but an extra 2stars for the effort. I just love these types of games, and it's great that people try to make such games on new platforms.

A Google User

Ashley H

My mom use to have this game and I love it. Haven't found it til now

Christine Oyntzen

Just like i remember Great game. I used to play when i was a little girl. The control pad is a little tricky to use at first and the add down the bottom is annoying. I'd rather pay than have the add there.

Brandon Slay

Awesome game Enjoy the puzzles. Only bad thing is that it freezes up sometimes

Papa J's Maze
