It all began in June 2009, when the original I Dig It was released for iPhone. Then came the globe-trotting edition I Dig It Expeditions for iPhone the following November. And then I Dig It HD for iPad arrived on the scene in 2010. Now, over half a decade later, out of the blue comes a new title in the I Dig It digging game series from InMotion Software. Enter: I Dig It Remastered.

As its name suggests, I Dig It Remastered is an enhanced version of the first I Dig It digging game. It’s basically the original game, but it features a new engine, graphics improvements, and interface tweaks. And unlike any of its predecessors, it’s compatible with iPad as well as iPhone.
As the game’s story goes, farmer Lewis has converted an old bulldozer into a high-tech “diggin” machine to help him cope with the hard times. You can use the virtual joystick or the touchscreen to control the diggin machine, making sure to avoid rocks and caverns while searching for buried “diggins.”
As the player, you have to help farmer Lewis quickly dig up stuff to sell so that he can pay the mortgage and save his farm. To succeed, you need to upgrade your digger and manage fuel, temperature, and damage. I Dig It Remastered also features four mini-game challenge matches and an open-ended mode for you to play.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, I Dig It Remastered is available now on the App Store for $3.99, with no in-app purchases.
