He must dig up objects to save his job and the museum as well.* Nigel the mummy will be out to get Douglas, but don’t worry, Nigel’s sense of direction is not so great (too many years buried in a tomb will do that), however if Nigel does touch your digging line, all heck will break loose!Many more enemies will join Nigel so collect hats (magic hats of course!), that will help Douglas along his adventure digging deeper and deeper to the center of the earth… Inspired by the arcade game “QiX”, Dig! is a fast paced game which requires quick changes of direction and strategy to dig out 75% of each level to complete. Different enemies will add to the difficulty however Nigel will always be close by, wandering around as he does. Collect artefacts for money to help the museum and to buy power-ups and hats. Collect exhibit pieces to put into the museum and earn a paycheck for Douglas. *Description:•Quick arcade action.•Interesting areas to unearth.•Power ups! •Hats! (that give perks!) •Unusual enemies; Nigel the mummy, moles with fezzes and many more!•Artifacts to collect. •Museum collections to find. •Colorful 3D art.•Great soundtrack.•Appropriate for all ages.

    Dig! is an intriguing little arcade game that takes a seemingly "boring" idea and spins it into a decent little platformer/digging adventure that requires intelligent tactics and planning for success. If you're a Dig Dug or Qix fan, you'll find plenty to like here.

    Dig ($2.99, Universal) is an action packed dig fest that provides tons of challenge and fun to discover, as you excavate all that’s included to reveal a should buy.

    Featuring a familiar game style and numerous attempts at humor, Dig! simply doesn’t do enough to stand out from the pack.

    Dig! is Qix for the iOS generation, with a few adjustments made for extra creativity.

    It's Qix combined with setting up an archaeological dig in your backyard, all the while avoiding mummies and moles. With better controls and some balancing, this could be quite enjoyable.

    A boring, uninspiring game that's utterly forgettable. It's not actively bad, but you probably won't dig Dig!
