Supaplex is a 1991 video game developed by Swiss students Phillip Jesperson and Michael Stopp. The game is something of a cult maze/puzzle game now available on iOS and since 2010 has seen a minor revival.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Supaplex is an extended clone of Boulder Dash and is set via one hundred and eleven increasingly difficult levels inside a computer. The player, a circular red ball-head known as Murphy, similar to Pac-Man, must navigate and negotiate his way around RAM chips, scissors, electrons and "bugs" using various types of floppy disks to blow up objects and ports to pass between rooms. Hardware prevents the players from passing into out-of-bound areas. The general idea is that Murphy must collect all the colourful items known as "Infotrons" before they can proceed to the "E" exit block.
