I’ve been playing a bit of Dig Dug lately, which reminded me of a Dig Dug variant (I thought) I played back in the 80’s where you also collected gems. Turns out I’m thinking of Digger, a 1983 DOS game by Windmill Software. The easiest way to play is online at futrega.org. Andrew Jenner has created Digger Remastered.
I was looking into a way to get this game on my PlaystationClassic. It has been ported quite a bit and I figured out Sektor made a NDS port. I couldn’t get it to run but I also didn’t want to spend time troubleshooting so shrugemoji
