Anyone invented a time machine yet?

Any impressions? Are there levels within the worlds or just four worlds?

It is as described in the App Store.

There are two modes. Bone Hunt and Free dig.

-Bone Hunt is Hard mode.

Once the puppy finds a bone, it moves on to the next stage.

After 4 phases, the phase advances to the next level.

It gets harder. Monsters and traps will be added.

In the middle, you can get coins and recovery items by getting rid of monsters.

If there is a store, exchange the upgrade with the collected coins.

If the mission fails, the previous record is shown and dog returns to the beginning!

The levels seem to be designed almost randomly.

-Free dig is Easy mode.

Your process is saved and can continue. Your dog can dig through without thinking.

Personally, I like this mode.

I'm absolutely thrilled to finally share Dig Dog with you! It's been a long time coming for me.

Dig Dog is a platformer that intermixes digging with roguelike gameplay. This launch trailer shows off the game pretty well. Although the game supports MFi game controllers, the touch controls have been built from the ground up to sing on iOS. Im really happy with the final result.

Included in the typical score leaderboards and achievements, there is a time-based leaderboard that I think the speed running community in particular will enjoy.

Very looking forward to your impressions! Enjoy!

WOO!! TouchArcade posted a review! Check out Carter's review!

148Apps posted a review and also a Dig Dog Guide. Very cool!

@Jean Thank you! Yea, Downwell was totally an inspiration. Some of classic iOS platformers were too: Mike Hooks and Kiro Blaster!
