But as in the original arcade classic, his arch rivals POOKA and FYGAR come burrowing up to lay waste to his tropical paradise. With his great intuition, DIG DUG has prepared for the impending onslaught by driving spikes into the ground and readying his trusty drill and inflator.

How to Play the Game There are two basic techniques to defeat DIG DUG's enemies. Push your shooting B button to active the "drill inflator". Four shots from the "pipe" will cause your enemy to explode. If you accidentally touch an "enlarged" monster, it's okay! He cannot cause any damage when he is in this state. Also when you inflate them, they cannot move. Drilling the island. When you push the drill button to connect the stakes, cracks will appear in the ground in the direction that DIG DUG is facing. When all the cracks are connected the small portion of the island will fall off into the sea. All of the monsters on that portion that is sliding into the sea will be destroyed. Using this weapon to wipe out all the monsters is the ultimate tactic! Score The amount of points for defeating monsters is shown below. But, the best way to score is to crack off a large portion of the island with lots of monsters on it. Inflator Vertical Shot Horizontal Shot 1. POOKA 200 pts 200 pts 2. FYGAR 200 pts 400 pts Drilling the island No. of monsters Total 1 1000 pts 2 2000 pts 3 4000 pts 4 7000 pts 5 10,000 pts 6 15,000 pts 7 20,000 pts 8 30,000 pts 9 50,000 pts 10 80,000 pts --- 4. Characters If DIG DUG is on the edge of the island when he cuts off a portion, he might fall off himself. He has to be facing land and moving in that direction or he will slip into the sea. If DIG DUG falls into the ocean, gets hits by FYGAR's fire, or bumps into an enemy, he's history. Veggies When you drill three pieces of an island off, vegetables will appear. DIG DUG must catch them to get their points. Item Points Round Radish 400 1 Mushroom 600 2 Eggplant 800 3 Tomato 1000 4,5 Watermelon 2000 6,7 Grapes 3000 8,9 Fish Find the fish while you are playing and shoot them with your drill inflator to get 500 points. --- 5. Winning strategies Monsters who do not change their shape cannot cross over cracks. When they approach DIG DUG, use the drill to make cracks to get away. Drilling cracks is very important. When a monster crosses over a crack he will change his shape, which causes his speed to decrease. DIG DUG should use this situation to his advantage by crossing back and forth over the cracks to get away. Drilling long horizontal lines is most effective. === (c) 1982, 1989 Namco / Bandai
