I like this, but why no slide control? With these onscreen buttons the game is nearly unplayable for me.

Thought this was going to be a straight-up Dig Dug-style game, but it actually plays closer to Timberman or Foodie Yama. Digging speed is definitely more important than strategy.

I think that the controls work really well. I was particularly pleased to see that there is an option to move the down control to the middle of the screen for one-handed play, although it's definitely easier to use the default scheme if you're going for high scores.

On a less positive note, it's disappointing to see that, of all the unlockable characters, the only female is an unrealistically-proportioned bikini babe called the Gold Digger whose oversized breasts jiggle as she drills.

The range of male characters and the character art is really good, so it's a shame to see such a lack of imagination and balance.

Thanks for your feedback and sorry about the proportion of the characters! We want to release more characters in the following updates.

Definitely needs an up button.

Dunno if that's part of the strategy, but at high speeds, the fingers slip and I end up with rocks on all three sides, forcing me to end the run.

Overall pretty cool! I'm growing fond of some good Timberman style games.
