Dig Dug on Atari 2600 VCS




This is a short video clip of me playing Dig Dug on the Atari 2600 VCS retro video games console.

Released by Atari in 1983.
Dig Dug is similar in concept to Mr Do, though I don't actually know which came first. Dig through the dirt and kill the enemies by either dropping rocks on them, or inflating them with an air pump 'till they explode. Nice.
There are bonuses to collect and baddies to prevent from escaping.

While the graphics are pretty ropey and the gameplay appears fairly basic, extended playing reveals more depth, with various strategies to employ, in order to beat the baddies.
So, while it's not one of my fave Atari games, it's by no means a bad one.

This and the other retro gaming clips on this site aren't intended as full game reviews, but are simply to give viewers who weren't around when these games were popular, an idea of what video games used to be like.
