It is definitively not the straightforward gameplay offered by the first game and this might explain why Dig Dug II wasn't as popular as the original. However you will get the hang of it very quickly and the game will reveal astonishing fun in return.

Perhaps a better plan for Dig Dug II would have been to add a few more characters or weapons. Changing the view, the graphics, and the entire concept was not the way to go.

I can certainly appreciate how its sharp graphics and excellent music stay true to the original, but frankly, this game is not very fun. Much of the blame lies with the awful controls. My friend Steve was so unimpressed that he asked me if this was some sort of "bootleg" game! Without an ounce of the magic of the original, Dig Dug 2 has largely faded into obscurity.
