Dig Dug™

Do you remember those simple arcade video games in which you had to just walk around and destroy creatures with just one button?

Dig Dug™ was an arcade game released in the 80’s. A popular game based on a simple concept, it is an extremely addictive game. The objective of Dig Dug is to move around and eliminate monsters dwelling underground.

The Gameplay

The gameplay involves moving underground and killing monsters dwelling there by inflating them until they pop, or by dropping rocks on them. There are two kinds of enemies in the game: Pookas, round red monsters who wear yellow goggles, and Fygars, green dragons that can exhale fire. The player’s character is Dig Dug, dressed in white and blue, and able to dig tunnels through destructible environments. Dig Dug™ is killed if he is caught by either a Pooka or a Fygar, burned by a Fygar’s fire, or crushed by a rock.

If left partially inflated, the monster will deflate and recover after a few seconds, and the player can also pass through the enemy while it is deflating. The monsters normally crawl through the tunnels in the dirt but can turn into ghostly eyes and travel slowly through the dirt.

Strategy

More points are awarded for eliminating an enemy further down in the dirt and the Fygar is worth more points if it is inflated horizontally facing the player. More points are also awarded for dropping rocks on enemies in order to eliminate them rather than inflating them. After the player drops two rocks, fruits appear in the center of the playfield, and can be collected for points if the player is able to reach them before they disappear.

If the player drops a rock on a foe at the same time he pumps it to death, all the enemies will promptly disappear, but the game will not progress and the player will be free to dig through all the dirt.

Difficulty Levels

After killing all the monsters, the game progresses to the next level. In successive levels more monsters appear on each screen and they move quicker.

Interface and Controls

The interface and controls are very easy.  Just use the arrow keys to move Dig Dug™.

Dig Dug™ is one of the simplest games ever. Yet, it is both addictive and fun to play. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
