Trivia

1001 Video Games

The Arcade version of Dig Dug appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Arcade version

In the coin-operated version the game ends on round 256 (shown as round 0) since this board is unplayable. At the start of the level, a Pooka is placed directly on top of where the player starts, with no way to kill it. This is a famous example of a kill screen (a area of a game that is impossible to play, usually caused by the oversight of developers.)

Release

Dig Dug was one of the "Fabulous Eleven" launch games for the Atari 7800.
