Great Memories, Terrible Controls Digger was a goto title in our shareware floppy disk library, and the game play was always a challenge. These controls are even more awful. The directional controls are sluggish, but worse yet is that the directions and the fire key are on the same side of the screen. Terrible design. Not sure how this got past a play test.
Move the fire button This would be a great game if the fire button moved to the lower left and the control on the lower right. I dunno why the developer spent so many good hours to bring back this game from the heaven, but don't have the time to think about the control placement. This probably a coder thing ?
Brings back memories It is fun to play for memory's sake but the control bad is poor and so I ended up dying due to the controls being too slow. The fire button is also below the directions which is a silly place for it to be.
Unplayable Who the hell would develop this game with the fire button on the same side as the controls? It's completely unplayable! I was looking forward to playing this old favorite but can't.
Great game but... It is annoying because after every game it asks for your first, second and third name.
Good remake but... Brings back old memories of playing on VGA monitors.. but that is how far it goes bec of the controls... too slow/bad design could be better if replaced with a trackball type one while limiting the rotation.
1.7: License info and link to source code on github is now included. (You may now implement better controllers by downloading the source and sending pull request to github repository ;-) )
1.6: By request, added an on-screen menu-button, as device menubutton is deprecated in newer android versions.
1.5: By request, the controls may be on the right side too.
1.4: The long-awaited SOUND update!
1.3: Added two new control types!
