BOH is a unique retro-flavoured puzzle-riddled dungeon crawler spiced up with thrilling action.
You move in claustrophobic, mysterious, dangerous battlefields searching for the Evil Masters, who throw countless enemies at you until you discover and face them in the final battle. Although your quests are made slightly less hard by the power-ups scattered all around, carrying out the missions demands lots of concentration and quick reflexes.
With BOH the fun never ends: new missions and themes can be added anytime and you can even create your own!
BOH has been created with lots of passion and care to offer, with its oldschool style, a fascinatingly different gaming experience.

Features:

  • immersive & thrilling gameplay
  • 48 missions + 12 secret missions to unlock
  • missions divided in 5 levels of difficulty
  • multi-phase missions
  • multi-floor battlefields of any size/shape
  • mind-blowing puzzles and deadly traps
  • many and varied power-ups
  • several different kinds of enemies
  • hand-pixelled 2D graphics
  • real-time field of vision and lighting
  • atmospheric audio and rich soundtrack
  • 7 themes
  • online world standings
  • possibility of creating missions and themes
  • Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish translations

BOH runs natively on AmigaOS, AROS, Linux, MacOS and Windows. It comes as a shrink-wrapped DVD box containing a pressed CD-ROM and a 24-page color printed English manual, or as a downloadable ISO image.

2 comments by saimo on Apr 12th, 2014

4/4/2014: easy remember, the date of the 5th anniversary of BOH. There is no better way to celebrate the event than releasing a brand-new edition that majestically closes the incredible evolution the game underwent since its original release.

DESURA USERS: PLEASE READ THE NOTE AT THE BOTTOM BEFORE INSTALLING.

The 5th Anniversary Edition:

  • includes all the updates released previously;
  • reworks the video modes handling (full screen by default; window on 16-bit screens allowed; more robust; etc.);
  • adds the CRT and LCD pixel modes;
  • adds the 5x zoom;
  • adds 5 new missions, bringing the total to a massive 60;
  • assigns the pause to the [ESCAPE] key (instead of a specific key), which thus no longer causes the immediate abort of the current mission;
  • reworks the menu controls (more keys; do not depend anymore on the in-game controls configuration);
  • adds the emergency configuration reset (assigned to the key [F12]);
  • adds the screenshot functionality (assigned to the key [F1]);
  • makes quitting by means of [ALT]+[F4] available on all platforms;
  • sets the default URL for records submission to Retream.com (it is no longer necessary to specify such URL manually in the configuration file);
  • replaces the copy code with an email address for the records submission;
  • updates the manuals;
  • applies many other optimizations/changes/fixes, for more performance, polish and robustness.

The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

IMPORTANT: Desura's automatic update process will trash your records; if you want to preserve them, please pack the missions directory and send it to boh@retream.com.

So now that Desura's Linux support is in place I finally bought a copy...seems like the missions are missing though. The only entries in the game menu are the options and exit buttons.

The files have been updated and there should be no problems now. If you notice any more problems please let me know.

I have discovered the problem: by mistake the missions from the demo version, which are not compatible, have been included in the build.
Again, I'll ask them to fix the problem, but still send me an email, so that I can provide you with the correct mission files.

Hey, thanks for keeping your word! :)
I'm sorry to hear that. I have no idea of what might have happened, since I just provided the archive to the administrators and I can't even test the build (I don't have a Linux machine at the moment). I'll inform them about the problem, so it gets fixed.
In the meanwhile, can you please send me an email to support@bohthegame.com? I'll provide you directly with a working copy.
