Dig Dug

Software writers from three continents have just launched rival games based on the arcade hit - Dig Dug. Game America is the official version and comes from the Atari stable. As with the majority of Atari arcade conversions, Dig Dug is a reasonably authentic copy.

You are the little character Dig-Dug who tunnels his way through the soil in a bid to unearth and kill the monsters. When all the fire-breathing monsters have been eliminated a new screen is started.

To add interest you can also collect bonus points by gobbling the fruits which appear at random. This is a simple and absorbing game which will doubtless sell well on the strength of its arcade pedigree.
