Repton is a classic BBC Micro puzzle game by Tim Tyler.
Explore several levels of an underground maze in a quest to find all the diamonds (some held in locked safes), while avoiding running out of time or being trapped or killed by falling rocks and monsters hatched from eggs.
The author was inspired by a review of the recently released Boulder Dash, but had never played the game. Compared with Boulder Dash, Repton is a much more calm and organized playing experience with the emphasis on puzzle-solving as opposed to arcade-style improvisation. This remained true as more types of object were added in the sequels. [Wikipedia]
