Dig Dug 2: Trouble in Paradise
The gardening masterpiece has returned! Dig Dug is back on the GameBoy! Old friends of Dig Dug can relive the classic arcade adventure on a hand-held system, which gives players the opportunity to destroy parasites that have infested a futuristic garden.
There's also a whole new adventure, and Dig Dug must collect keys to travel to higher levels with his pump, bombs and 16 ton weights!
Dig Dug was a favorite from the early days of gaming so I was eager to give this soft a try. I liked the play, it's virtually the same except for an annoying scrolling mechanism that allows the cart to project a larger playfield. The controls are a bit sluggish as well The extra Dig Dug game was nice - but not revolutionary.
Talk about old memories! I remember playing this game a long time ago and Namco has brought it back in exceptional form, I really like the new action which they have built in but best of all, this is just a lot of plain fun. No heavy thinking involved here just pure enjoyment. A perfect game to play in the car.
This cart is a blast from the past. Most veterans will remember pumping quarters into a machine so they could pump their enemies full of air. The game play is intact and the graphics are decent for GB standards. A few new features thrown in for a little variety and you have a solid little GB cart that's great for long road trips.
The timeless classic doesn't fare to well on the black and while joke of a machine. All of the basic things are still present, but the incredible colors and crisp cartoony graphics are nonexistent! Without that, Dig Dug is more like Big Mud. Normally, Dig Dug should look just fine in 8-Bit, but the GameBoy doesn't do it justice.
