App description: Join Douglas Chase as he digs up his backyard in search of treasures and fame!

*** iPhone 3GS not supported ***
Douglas Chase is a not so great archeologist working for a failing museum. He must dig up objects to save his job and the museum as well. Nigel the mummy will be out to get Douglas, but dont worry, Nigels sense of direction is not so great (too many years buried in a tomb will do that), however if Nigel does touch your digging line, all heck will break loose!

Many more enemies will join Nigel so collect hats (magic hats of course!), that will help Douglas along his adventure digging deeper and deeper to the center of the earth

Inspired by the arcade game QiX, Dig! is a fast paced game which requires quick changes of direction and strategy to dig out 75% of each level to complete. Different enemies will add to the difficulty however Nigel will always be close by, wandering around as he does. Collect artefacts for money to help the museum and to buy power-ups and hats. Collect exhibit pieces to put into the museum and earn a paycheck for Douglas.

Description:

Quick arcade action.
Interesting areas to unearth.
Power ups!
Hats! (that give perks!)
Unusual enemies; Nigel the mummy, moles with fezzes and many more!
Artifacts to collect.
Museum collections to find.
Colorful 3D art.
Great soundtrack.
Appropriate for all ages.

anyone done a review on the iap layout?
The IAPs are far from necessary. I've managed to easily almost complete the game without them.

A cool game with good game mechanics.... It's major flaw however is it's lifespan.... Finished it within a day and got almost all trophies... Hardly any replay value.... Hope they will add levels and new musea soon!

My strategy is to purchase a bunch of the holographic decoys and just drop them as I work my way through the dig. It can be very frustrating since you have to reach the checkpoint on each zone and then you must complete three areas in a row without dying. It wasn't so hard that it frustrated me, it just kept me coming back. I seem to be about a half zone away from actually completing the whole game. Hope the ending is cool (if there is one).
Your strategy works fine, I have to admit. And I didn't get that you just can replay mastered areas if you are too low on cash. The key is to buy the right powerups and using them generously. I got quite a bit further with that slowing-down knife of time.
