  • Summary: These changes make for a much more challenging game, with levels that require multiple objectives to complete, new play mechanics and types of enemies to master plus many more hidden items. It gives the franchise a new lease on life with surprisingly deep and addictive play that stays true to the classic Dig Dug feel while adding enough twists and surprises to keep things from becoming stale.

  • Conclusion: is important because on the screen opposite to where the digging action is happening, a boss creature can be seen walking around an island. Players need to plan their sinking correctly so that the boss falls into the drink too, thus winning that island. While digging still remains the core of the game, there are a bunch of new features, like the aforementioned bosses, the ability to operate vehicles, and tons of weapons, and treasure that can be used to unlock yet more...

Dig Dug: Digging Strike

Portable Review
28 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Dig Dug: Digging Strike is a mix of the original Dig Dug, and the sequel, Dig Dug II. The top screen plays much like Dig Dug II, except there are many little holes that lead to the bottom screen, which is played like the original Dig Dug. Fans of either one will enjoy the mix here, as it works perfectly on the DS hardware. Dig Dug                         Dig Dug II So how does Dig Dug: Digging Strike use the DS stylus? Well, it doesn’t!

Dig Dug Digging Strike Review

  • Conclusion: Now, maybe I’ve been spoiled by some really good games since the original Dig Dug came out, but this just didn’t do it for me. Of course if you’re a big fan you’ll absolutely love what’s here because it’s Dig Dug and it’s updated with some pretty cool new features. Some more creative stages and less repetitive gameplay would have made this game easier to swallow, but otherwise it may be another game you choose to pass up on. You’re best off trying before buying.

Dig Dug: Digging Strike Review

GameSpot
18 October 2005
  • Summary: If you came in looking for a throwback to the arcade days of Dig Dug, you should probably look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Tons of stuff to collect and obsess over, Namco fans will enjoy the minigames and cameos
  • Cons: Serious lack of stylus use, Tries to futz too much with the original gameplay, The core game doesn't last all that long
