'Dig Dug' Coming to Xbox Live Arcade

Bandai-Namco 1981 classic Dig Dug is launching on Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays, tomorrow, October 11. Eliminate the monsters deep beneath Earth's surface by dropping rocks on them or blowing them up until they pop!

The classic arcade action title Dig Dug is now available for play on your Xbox 360™ through Xbox LiveĀ® Marketplace. Experience the fast-paced action of this quarter-cruncher from 1982 as you take control of Dig Dug himself and vanquish Pookas and Fygars.

Using your trusty pump, inflate your enemies until they pop, or squash them under rocks. Don't hesitate, or you could get squashed yourself. Drive your high score up by taking out enemies further underground, or making more difficult kills.

Dig! Propel Dig Dug through underground tunnels as he hunts down monsters. The more dirt you move, the more points you get. Watch out for treacherous rocks and use them to your advantage.
Fight! Just because your enemies start in tunnels doesn't mean they have to stay there. Watch out for them sneaking up on you and make them pay!
Collect! Drop more than two rocks and look for icons to start appearing in the center of the map! Collect these items, including the ship from the Xbox Live Arcade game Galaga, to drive your score higher.

Features :

  • Enhanced graphics including HDTV support (720p, 480p),
  • 12 Xbox Live Achievements
  • online Leaderboards

Download "Dig Dug" tomorrow, Wednesday, October 11, at 1am PST on Xbox Live Arcade.
