Arcade in style and requiring a considerable amount of hand-eye co-ordination this fine old piece of high-speed excavation is nevertheless a tough challenge for the grey matter.

Your job in each of the game's caverns is to dig for gems, but your progress is hampered by boulders, underground creatures and some rather strange weed. These have rules of behaviour which are quite easy to learn, but actually using them to your advantage can take a fair old effort of the brain - especially considering you need the answers in seconds rather than minutes.

The pressure and variety the game offers make it enormously addictive and certainly a bargain at budget price, but if you don't know one end of a joystick from the other or are just looking for a quiet evening's cerebral entertainment you'll probably find its arcade leanings too pronounced.
