Dig! wants you to think it's a game about digging when it's actually a game about drawing lines. It's dressed in the exciting shorts and gloves of an archaeologist, but it's holding the dull ruler of a harried town planner.
And on top of that it's a game you've played before in a hundred different guises, beginning with Qix – cut out chunks of a rectangle while being chased by enemies to progress onto the next shape.
The only twist on the formula is that you dig up items of treasure. These give you extra cash to spend on various power-ups that'll help you dig even deeper and get more expensive treasure.
A boring, uninspiring game that's utterly forgettable. It's not actively bad, but you probably won't dig Dig!
