Mean Machines (Nov, 1991)
Similar in concept to Boulderdash, but with much more to it, Digger T Rock is yet another brilliant game from Rare. Oozing quality from the outset, the beautifully-drawn cute graphics and catchy music provide instant appeal, and the tricky, but highly addictive action keeps you playing. There are plenty of secrets to uncover, including short cuts around the screen and warps to later levels (so I've been told, but I can't find 'em). If you're a fan of Boulderdash, or are just after a game that provides plenty of fun and challenge, check this out - one go and you'll be hooked!
Play Time (Jan, 1992)
Das Spielprinzip ist recht simpel, aber doch witzig gemacht.
Video Games (Dec, 1991)
Digger ist in fast allen Belangen knapp über dem Durchschnitt engesiedelt. Die Grafik hält mit Spotzentiteln zwar nicht mit, schreckt aber keineswegs ab. Wer nicht allzu komplizierte Geschicklichkeitsspiele mag, der wird an Digger Gefallen finden.
There is a one minute time limit to escape through the exit door as well once it’s triggered, which can be tough, especially with the constantly respawning enemies. This high level of difficulty unfortunately negates some of the fun factor.
Lots of neat ideas, but Digger T. Rock is just too frustrating. I didn't really enjoy playing it that much, and I don't think you'll be thrilled either.

The premise – exploring underground caverns in order to find a lost city – is interesting. The execution – young adventurer tries to find a lost city, but can’t make it a few yards without hurting himself – is painful.
