I never played Boulder Dash, but played all the Repton games for the Electron back in the day.
No. Boulder Dash and Repton both derive from "THE PIT', an arcade game by Centuri.
But you're right that Repton is better! More cerebral, and requires more cunning to beat it.

3D Starstrike on the cpc. Much better than the official Star Wars converison. Defend Or Die is a great Defender clone on the cpc too.

Killer Gorilla on the CPC for me. A direct copy of Donkey Kong but visually looking more like Chuckie Egg. A shame that Jumpman is replaced by Nicholas Witchell with rickets, though.
Still the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!

BROS for the 2600. it is a clone of Mario Bros and is impossible to beat beacuse the last level is blank.

Preppie! for the Atari 8-bit which was a great little Frogger clone. Less said about the music the better though...

Nothing. Sadly due to this modern day and age, I was never treated to the wonders of that arcade way of life. (Unless you count Crisis Zone in bowling alleys.)

It's too bad there weren't any Final Fight clones, those might have been good.
I got a lot of play time out of Victory Run for TurboGrafx/PCE. Good Outrun clone.
