Fallen on hard times, farmer Lewis converts an old bulldozer into a fantastic high-tech “diggin” machine. Help him dig up stuff to sell (60+ unique diggings) in a race against the clock to pay the mortgage and save the farm (campaign mode).
In addition there are 4 mini-game challenge matches, plus open-ended free play mode, offering hours of game play.
Manage fuel, temperature, and damage while searching for diggins. Sell them at the farmhouse to earn cash. Save cash to pay the mortgage, upgrade your digger, or make repairs. Use the on-screen “analog” joystick, or touch-screen to control digger movement. Watch out for rocks and caverns that disrupt your path. Have fun!
Ratings and Reviews
A downgrade at best
If someone showed me a screenshot of the game and told me it was an early version IDigIt, I’d believe it. The unique mechanical hud has been replaced by boring generic look. Added to this, not all features are here. Casual mode is gone and the depth marker no longer exists. This will make your first play through excruciating as you learn the new limits and rules, which have changed drastically. On top of all this, the sound changes are terrible too. The old beeping noise alerting you to a full inventory is gone, so you will most likely be running a combo dig and end up losing one or two of the diggings as the game gives you a tiny cough of an alert about it. The new music they added has a sinister, dark tone to it, which is stupid for a game with literally no threat but your own carelessness. Lastly, the story elements of the game have been trimmed down from minimalist, to practically nonexistent.
The gam may be playable, but is by no means a better version. All in all, Stick to the old version. It may not use the full screen, but it’s still fun, and has honestly aged well when compared to this.
Gas so expensive?
Starting out, it cost over $100 to refill tank? I find myself just digging just to refill my tank so I can go dig some more to refill my tank.... maybe give players a little more room to enjoy and not get frustrated and regret spending $2.99 (especially new players). The game would be more enjoyable with two tiny adjustments. Just two. Either make the gas last longer or less expensive. For the second tiny adjustment, a little more light would be great in the beginning. I understand you want people to play and earn it. But in the beginning it doesn’t have to be so dark?... right? Not deleting right away because I love motherload and was hoping this would be a close second, with that being said I hope the devs haven’t given up on this game completely and make it less frustrating so new players won’t give up so fast.
Fix this game!
Lots of terrible reviews...but I'm really good at this game... surely it's not too hard for me... FAIL. This game ruins the series. Diggings are few and far between, fuel burns so fast you have to strategically dig every brick. Radar upgrades do almost nothing... digger barely fits in tunnels, and easily gets stuck... not enough diggings to fund quick access tunnels to get you in and out quickly. NO RESPAWN... one bad turn and you START OVER. NO MINI MAP! You don't fit in tunnels, have no gas, no radar, no map, and find nothing to sell. NOT A FUN GAME. HORRIBLE. Do not waste your money on this version until they fix it. It is not enjoyable at all!
