Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

A brief and, erm, rather unusual prose adaptation of the old videogame involving the little man who crawls into a tunnel to pump monsters. You might want to give this one a thorough look before letting your children play it.

A tasteless reworking of the classic arcade game, September 15, 2017

I was surprised by this game, because I played it in the downloaded Arcade pack, and didn't have a chance to see the tags or genre.

It's essentially just a tasteless reworking of the original game Dig Dug, written by someone with the mind of a 12 year old male who has heard about women but never actually spoken with one.
