Game Boy[edit]

screen
box

Developed by Namco and released in the U.S. in 1992. Originally released as part of the Namco Gallery Vol. 2 in Japan.

There is a new version of the game included on this cartridge, entitled New Dig Dug. There are objects that cannot be dug through. You are basically collecting keys to open a door, which will lead to a new round. There is an intermission after you clear each round. You can dig under weights which drop, and also a ball which rolls over everything in its path, and a bomb which kills any enemies in its vicinity. (Note: The image shown to the left is of the original conversion and not this new one).

Developed by Namco in 1985. This version has a high score of 999,990, and stops at Round 99. However, the high score on the title screen will correctly display millions of points. And the flowers are displayed until round 93, but are truncated at 48. Only 12 flowers are ever shown at the top of the screen. You continue to get extra lives, and the game does not end. You can continue playing until you decide to end the game yourself through tiredness. It does not increase in difficulty starting from round 28, where the last four game rounds repeat forever.
