[prMac.com] Shrewsbury, Massachusetts - Indie developer, InchWest is proud to release Digger 1.2, the hit 1980s DOS game for Apple devices. The classic arcade game is re-mastered with for Mac, iPhone and iPad. Digger is similar to the other popular DOS games Mr. Do! and Dig Dug. You are placed in an underground maze and can dig horizontal and vertical tunnels through it. At various points on the board are emeralds and bags of gold.
Monsters (initially in the "nobbin" form) appear at the top right-hand corner. If earth is excavated from under a gold bag, then the bag will wobble for a few seconds and then drop releasing gold. Falling bags will squash monsters, but they will also squash the digger. The digger has a weapon, which fires in a straight line, but takes several seconds to recharge (taking longer as the levels go higher).
When a monster is killed, another will appear at the top right-hand corner of the screen. Once all the monsters for the level have been created, a cherry appears in their place. If the digger collects this, bonus mode is entered, and for about fifteen seconds the digger is able to eat the monsters.
The gameplay and pixel graphics are reminiscence of classic games like Space Invaders, Pacman, Mario and many other arcade hits. Many people would remember this game from their childhood days and this app lets them relish this on their modern devices.
