Dig Dog Guide - Dig Deep to Discover Your Inner Dog

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 8th, 2018

Dig Dog is a platforming game that feels something like a cross between the arcade simplicity of Dig Dug and the ultra tough (but unwaveringly fair) Spelunky. Here’s a few tips to help you get better in your dogged pursuit of bones.

Go the distance

When you first start playing Dig Dog, I recommend just trying to get as far into the game’s Bone Hunt mode as possible. This is both because the Dig Dog’s other mode seems almost completely lacking in challenge and also because getting through levels in Bone Hunt can unlock new worlds that you can warp to immediately on new runs. If you clear enough levels to visit a new world a few times, you eventually get the power to warp straight there, which can cut out having to replay older and easier worlds.
