This is a rather good version, conaining large, colourful graphics with reasonable movement. The control is also good, although there is no joystick option. It is easy to get on and off the ladders which is a help. I think this is better than the Visions/Mikrogen version. It features oxygen and four monster types, and separate keys for dig and fill, which are well laid out. Digger Dan is enjoyable and addictive, and one of the best 'Panics' here.

This version has now been available for quite a while, yet it shows hardly any signs of age. The game takes place on five very solid looking platforms connected by several well-drawn ladders. It starts off as the simplest of the bunch but gets progressively more difficult by adding one monster for every two screens completed - unqique. The monsters are well drawn and move smoothly, although they are not at all intelligent. Your man is nicely animated and moves with reasonable speed. The keyboard positions could have been better, but nothing too much to complain about. It is slightly lacking in the Sound department, but colour has been well used. Good.
