Find Mysterious Treasures with Dig Out! Read The Review!
Do you like arcade games as I do? And what about finding gems and treasures, fighting with horrific monsters, and competing with your friends? Well, that is what the Dig Out! game is all about! It’s a relatively new puzzle app, so I decided to give it a shot and share my thoughts on it with all arcade lovers out there.
Well, the app’s graphics are pretty clear although there is nothing extraordinary. I can’t say that it’s very detailed, and the opening seems more like a cartoon.
Yet, Dig Out! is just an app for smartphones, tablets, and other devices, so what else to expect? Still, the graphics are bright and colorful, just how this should be when it comes to puzzle apps.
What is it about?
The whole game is about finding precious gems and treasures, fighting with various enemies, completing quests, and constantly upgrading your «digger». Players also get to compete with their friends that add a touch of challenge to the game.
Be ready to face different obstacles on your way to treasures. Your game character has a limited number of lives, and if all of them are lost, the player will die. Also, the number of turns seems to be limited as well, so you have to be wise and sensible.
For me, the touch controls are okay as soon as you get used to them, although one may find them a little wonky.
After the latest update, the Dig Out! game sometimes freezes at the most inappropriate moment, so my game character died a couple of times due to a dropping stone because I just wasn’t able to move my player. Such glitches are obviously annoying. Also, commercials tend to pop up on defining moments when you have to act fast, and the ads distract a lot.
Dig Out! is free to play if you don’t mind commercials. And if you want to improve your digger’s skills, you can buy the premium version of the game. With a little money spent on the app, your game character will be able to freeze stones and enemies, throw a boomerang, lift up stones, and so on.
The app is compatible with Android-based as well as iOS-based devices, so you can find it on Google Play and on App Store, too.
To replay or not to replay
The developers claim that the game randomly generates endless maps, so in theory, this should keep up the player’s interest. In fact, the game is fun and even addictive yet at the same time a bit monotonous. Sure, you get to dig out new treasures and fight new kinds of monsters, but the basics are still the same.
So, if you prefer to complete as many quests and get as many rewards as you can, you probably won’t be interesting in replaying as all of your achievements will be lost. As far as I can tell, if you delete the game and then re-install it, all your progress will be lost.
Is it good?
In a nutshell, Dig Out! is a funny way to spend a bit of your free time, immersing yourself in a colorful fantasy world where you can find precious treasures and fight spooky monsters. It’s easy to play, there is a lot to do, and you can complete a couple of levels in 5 minutes, although since the last update there are a lot of glitches. As many other puzzle apps it may be addictive, so be ready to spend a couple of hours playing Dig Out!
