About this game

As a heavy equipment operator, you’re a key member of the construction site responsible for digging trenches, moving earth, busting up concrete, filling holes, and so much more. It’s your job to complete big tasks with finesse and skill. All eyes are on you as you start out in training and work your way up through increasingly more complicated jobs.

Think you have basic moving and digging down? Well let’s see how you do at night in a busy city environment with cars, dozers, and other equipment racing by you. Not only are you trying to do the job right and on time, but you must avoid hitting utilities and other vehicles as well. Will you crumble under the pressure, or dig in to get the job done?

It’s not all work. As you build up your reputation and get noticed as a skilled operator, you will be approached with special bonus challenges. Block all the boulders from getting past you as they race downhill. See how quickly you can score some baskets in a game of excavator basketball. How about some larger than life mini-golf?

Use the same hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness in this game as the real heavy equipment operators out on the jobsite. Perform well enough and you could be directed to real life operator opportunities in your area!

Dig In: An Excavator Game features:
-Choose between Simplified controls or challenging Realistic excavator controls.
-4 different construction environments.
-13 levels with increasingly difficult tasks.
-3 fun and challenging bonus levels.
-Dig trenches, move earth, fill in holes with gravel, and bust up concrete with a hoe ram.
-Beautiful 3D graphics and sound design.
-Links to real life heavy equipment opportunities.
-Badge earning through the Skill Arcade.

MAJOR UPDATE!!!!!!

New Balloon Bash game mode invites added challenge as you strive to pop as many balloons as possible with a drum cutter before time runs out. This endless game mode is perfect for challenging friends and taking your excavator mastery to a new level. Pop all of the red balloons to earn points while avoiding dreaded bomb balloons. Powerups and time bonuses keep you going as you try to last as long as possible.

In response to popular demand, we’ve given players the ability to choose between ISO and SAE controls. Both control options include realistic and simple versions so you can operate heavy equipment the way that suits you best.

I love this game. It's difficult to find one with realistic controls, but this does a great job. Would love to see some sort of 'free play' mode or something though. It would be fun to have a playground of things to do with no real mission (big pile of dirt or sand, multiple boxes or trucks to put it in, trenches to dig/fill in, etc.) Some bugs I noticed were: Dirt Pile level 2 won't give credit for doing job right. Highway level 2 won't complete at all for me no matter what I do. Overall great!

Hey John, Thanks for the great review! We tried hard to get the controls right, glad you appreciate that. We've updated the game to fix the bug on Highway Level 2. It should work now.

Game is very realistic, with the option to make it easier or harder for you(whatever you prefer more). Controls work pretty much just as ones in real life(btw i am real life excavator driver hehe), ads are limited and show every couple missions and thats absoloutly fine. Only bad thing is there are not many missions, so i hope they create more missions overtime.
