What's your favourite digging game?

[size=140]Digging games were all the rage for a while with titles like Dig Dug and Mr. Do! lighting up arcades everywhere while games like Oil's Well and Boulderdash had a big part in the boom of home computers. But what game is your favourite?[/size]

Tough choice, but I went with Mr. Driller... specifically Mr. Driller Drill Land on the Gamecube.

Mr. Do series would be my second favorite.

I say Boulderdash. Not the topic the game. :21:

It's very hard to choose here but I'm going with Mr. Do!  I've always like that clown and, as much as I like Dig Dug, I like Mr. Do! even more.  :)

I spent a lot of time playing Digger T rock on the NES.

I logged too many hours on Sega's Thunderground for VCS to consider anything else. Lots of good ones out there, and Dig Dug and Boulderdash are goodies, but Thunderground reigns supreme to me.

Interesting game.  It does appear to combine elements from more than one type of game, HERO being one of them.

That does look like a nice Mr. Do! clone.

Yeah, it's a PC game. One of the first games I ever played.

That dooes look like a pretty nifty clone.  Interesting how they handled the "digging."

I have to agree with you about Dig Dug 2.  It's just not as good as the original.  I've only played it on my PSP, though, so I don't know if that'd make much of a difference regarding my opinion of it.
