I just got the GB version and it does play very well.  It's definitely a fun game.  The 2600 version ins't bad but I don't think it makes good use of screen space.  Atari did a better job converting Dig Dug than Coleco did with Mr. Do! on the 2600.

I love Mr. Do! I only have the 2600 version though, which isn't the best.

I would LOVE to see a 7800 or Lynx version of this game  :-*

You and me both but I'd settle for someone to convert the A8 version to a 5200 cart!!

That looks fantastic! Love how they changed the name to avoid legal issues!  LOL

Personal fav.of mine, 1st picked up by chance on A8 (Box looked something different), soon became hooked, so as soon as i jumped ship to C64, had to get it on that.

Paid pretty penny for SNES game at the time, but since let go (it went to a good home though).

Was tad 'miffed' when i read the GB review in Zero magazine though, reviewer made it clear he was'nt a fan of the original, so never going to get fair review i felt.

I'm trying to see if the folks at Good Deal Games get an A8 conversion done for the 5200.  ;)
