In an alternate universe, adventurers from the Victorian era are being lured to Mars with the promise of
 great riches - but oh no - its a trap! Try to escape your Martian? captors and make it back home in one piece.

Rock Boshers is a top down shooter played over 19 levels. This game was started for the Tigsource DEMAKES competition in 2008. This is based on old ZX Spectrum hardware constraints using the original PC version of Red Faction as its demake point of reference.

Rockaroids - This bonus game can be unlocked by reaching level 10 of Rock Boshers. It can be accessed from the main menu. It has two game modes. The first is an 8 level against the clock challenge featuring a large boss at the end. The second is a more traditional infinite mode, just keep going as long as you can.

Increasingly challenging over its 19 levels, Rock Boshers is one devious action adventure with great ZX Spectrum type graphics and gameplay.
