Level sets of Andreas Buschbeck re-released!2022-01-17
This is the first in a series of planned re-releases of level sets for Rocks’n’Diamonds, to make those level sets easier to install and play, and to add features and other stuff that may have been missing in the original releases by their authors.
We will start with the level sets of Andreas Buschbeck, which were released on his web site for the first time in 2003. Andreas Buschbeck has created five classic style level sets with custom artwork and sound. As a hobby musician and trance DJ, he also added excerpts of his music to his level sets, which fit well to his level sets and which are grouped into three custom music sets (which can, as with all custom artwork sets in Rocks’n’Diamonds, also be used with other level sets).
However, not only is his web site down for many years now (and the broken link to it on the “Levels & Artwork” page has been replaced with a link to the last snapshot of his web site on archive.org), but also his level sets with custom graphics, sounds and music were scattered over many different packages, which made it a bit complicated to install and play them in Rocks’n’Diamonds.
For a more convenient user experience, all level sets, graphics, sounds and music sets have been put together into one single package, which can easily be installed and played. As an extra bonus to the already released four level sets, an additional, previously unreleased fifth level set (“AB Levelset 0”, which is more of a prequel level set to the other four sets) with 80 levels and different graphics, created in 2002, has been added to this collection, which also contains solution tapes for all included levels.
