Dig Dug

Dig Dug is a classic maze arcade action game that was first released by Namco in 1982 as a coin-op and later for a number of other systems. The gameplay of Dig Dug involves digging tunnels through the earth to reach and defeat the various creatures that inhabit the underground maze. The player has an air pump, which he can use to inflate the monsters until they burst, or he can also crush them by causing rocks to fall on them. The main objective is to eliminate all the monsters while avoiding being caught by them. Dig Dug was designed by Shigeru Yokoyama.
