Namco All-Stars by Namco - Dig Dug 

Pop Pookas and squash Fygars in Namco All-Stars by Namco - Dig Dug, the classic arcade hit with fun new surprises.

Dig Dug returns with all of the pest pumping action of the original arcade mega-hit. Snare your enemies with your trusty pump and inflate them until they pop, or squish them with falling rocks to rid them from your garden. Watch out for their sneaky tactics however, because they can surprise you, and if you get caught in Fygar's fiery breath, you're toast! Who said landscaping was easy?

This faithful rendition of the original features 256 levels of frantic digging, popping and rock dropping. Play it like it was 1982 in Classic Mode, or check out the tricked out Enhanced Mode with new graphics and sound. How does your pest popping action measure up to others? Track them with the new stat counter for distance traveled, dirt moved, air pumped, and more. It's Dig Dug done even better!

I grew up during the 80's so Dig Dug swallowed many quarters. Either I have become much better or this game has become much easier. Seems like full price is too much to charge for a game that is so simplistic it's less than an 8MB download. For people who haven't heard of Dig Dug (I'm old, *sob*) it's a cartoonish arcade game with a strong resemblence to Nintendo's Mario titles. You are stuck in a giant mound of dirt that takes up almost the entire screen but strangely that doesn't seem to be much of a problem for you. You can dig in any direction almost as fast as you can walk through an already dug tunnel and you'll collect a small amount of points for doing so. Also in the tunnel are Pookas and Fygars. I forget which is which but I think the Pookas are the ones that look like fat kids and the Fygars look like little dragons. These creatures are trying to attack you but they can't dig the way you can. Instead they change into ghosts where they can float in any direction but at a slower speed than you can move; at least in the early levels. Once back in a tunnel they change back into their regular shape and can move slightly faster than you can. To defend yourself, you carry a standard air pump that you use to pump up a single creature until it explodes (yes, the drugs were good then). You can only pump up one at a time so if two are chasing you the other can get you while you are busy pumping up the other. You also need to beware of the Fygars as they can breathe dragon fire, but only horizontally, not vertically. Blowing up each creature gets many more points than digging through the dirt and that becomes the main focus of each level. The max points comes from digging underneath a rock so it wiggles for a second and drops. If you time it right, it'll squash an enemy as it falls. There are also increasing bonuses in the center of the screen, similar to the cherries in Pac Man, that appear for a very short time. So that's the game in a nutshell. Clear out all the baddies, rinse and repeat at a slightly increased difficulty until you lose all your lives. That's all it took to entertain us old folks back in the 80's. This is why I think Naamco is being greedy expecting full price for such an old title, even if it is a classic. The "enhanced" mode just changes the graphics a little bit as far as I can tell, nothing revolutionary. You can also see the total amount of dirt dug and other silly stats. It might be a challenge if there were an online leaderboard you could compete against but the game doesn't have that. Funpass members who can download as much as they want will have fun with the game but people paying full price may feel a little cheated. Personally, I uninstalled it after an hour or two of play.
