It was a few months ago when we got our first look at an upcoming intergalactic mining game from Noodlecake Studios Inc. Dig Deep! looked to be a frantic adventure of gold mining with dangerous traps, deadly aliens, and fast-moving gameplay. Now that the game has arrived on the App Store, it is just as we expected and just as fun as we had hoped.
Collect the gold
The controls for Dig Deep! are simple; tap right or left to move in that direction and tap rapidly to move quicker. You must complete the tasks within the mission that you see at the start of the level if you want to move on. If you fail a level without completing the tasks, that progress will be saved so that you can replay the level and finish your missions.
Watch out for bombs
You will come across nasty aliens as you mine and the bombs can come in handy for eliminating them. As you hit a bomb square, it will ignite. The trick is to move past it quickly because if you don’t, the bomb will take you out instead of the aliens.
Get game boosts
Redeem the gold you collect for helpful game boosts. The Disposable Boost will have to plummeting through the mining areas at a rapid speed to collect gold. The Shield Timer will extend your shield duration and the Boost Distance will extend the boost by 50 meters.
Dig Deep! has nifty pixel art graphics and energizing music. Since the gameplay moves quickly, it becomes a bit frenzied, but that is the point. If you like fast-paced, frantic, and fun arcade style action, then Dig Deep! is a game you should check out.
Dig Deep! is designed for both iPhone and iPad. It is available for $1.99 on the App Store without the worry of ads.
