5.0 out of 5 stars The first dig dug., July 1, 2009
This review is from: Dig Dug (Video Game)
This is the first dig dug and to this day i love to play it. Most people have played this but if u havent the object of it is to get all of the items by diging underground and try not to get hit by the space creatures. And after u get all of the things u go to the next level which is harder and each level u beat it gets harder. The graphics and sound is really good for the atari. This is an awsome game.

5.0 out of 5 stars An impressive arcade-to-70s console title, November 24, 2010
This review is from: Dig Dug (Video Game)
Dig Dug was just another one of those smash hits in your local video arcade. You dig through the ground, finding and blowing up enemies with a pump. It had simple gameplay, but that simple gameplay became very fun.

The Atari 2600 version is a lot like that. The graphics were actually pretty impressive for the Atari, and the sounds were fairly good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic game with simplified graphics, March 9, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dig Dug (Video Game)
Atari obtained the license for home versions of Dig Dug, and then released it for the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Intellivision, Apple II, Atari 400/800, Commodore VIC-20, Commodore 64, IBM PC, and Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. Namco ported Dig Dug to the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985, but it was not released in North America. A Gameboy version was released in 1992. Another version was released on a Plug N' Play System, along with Galaxian, Rally-X, some Pac-Man games, and a few others. In October 2006, a version of Dig Dug was released on the Xbox Live Arcade. Namco Networks ported Dig Dug to the PC (bought online) in 2009 which also includes an "Enhanced" mode which replaces all of the original sprites with the sprites from Dig Dug: Digging Strike, Namco Networks also made a bundle (also bought online) which includes their PC version of Dig Dug as well as their port of the original Pac-Man called Namco All-Stars: Pac-Man and Dig Dug. The arcade version has also been released on the Wii Virtual Console in Japan on October 20, 2009, along with its sequel, Dig Dug II and the original Dig Dug was released as part of the Pac-Man's Arcade Party 30th Anniversary arcade machine in 2010. The NES version for the Virtual Console was released in 2008, but as an import for Western regions. Gakken made a table top hand held game of Dig Dug in 1982. It was one of a series of 3 flip-top games with VFD screen and magnifying Fresnel lens. The other two similar style Gakken hand held games were Jungler and Amidar. Dig Dug has been included on most Namco Museum compilations, and it's one of the three bonus games in the Wii and Nintendo 3DS versions of Pac-Man Party.

Obviously the version listed here (for the Atari 2600) had the most simplified graphics of all the ports, but it's still the same game and it's still fun. Dig around your yard and shoot the enemies, that looks like dinosaurs and amoebas, until they're all gone. The level repeats itself with the enemies in new positions. After a few repeats the colors change and the game continues. Be careful through, once in a while the enemies gain the ability to move through the dirt instead of just following you through the paths you dug and when you get to the last enemy it suddenly speeds away towards the left side of the screen and disappears. If you're already between it an the top left of the screen then you might have a chance to destroy it, but don't worry it doesn't matter, you'll still advance to the next level.

I wish they'd make an official version for the North American region NES.
