Namco’s Dig Dug Remix Arrives On The iPhone

Posted May 10, 2009

Dig Dug was a classic arcade game made in 1982 by Namco.  Atari published the maze-based game shortly after the game was made for arcades.  The objective of the game is to eliminate ground-dwelling monsters while digging through mazes.  Eliminating monsters requires the Dig Dug character to inflate them using his pump.

For those of you that want to relive their youth, but don’t have access to an Atari or the Dig Dug arcade, you can pick up a copy of the game for $5.99 through the iTunes App Store.  The $5.99 that you pay will allow you to play the classic version or the remixed, new version of the game that features new levels, new enemies, and new power ups.

Namco has done something similar with Galaga Remix.  Around February 2007, the Digg staff was looking for someone to help fix their Dig Dug machine.  The game also works for the iPod Touch.
