My friend SirKrunch sent me a link to MadLittlePixel’s playthrough of the Evercade Retro Handheld version of Dig-Dug. He said (paraphrasing here) “Is the audio really that bad?” I watched the clip and it seems to be the NES version (not my favorite) and the music in the game was WAY TOO SLOW.
After I did a bit of digging (pun intended) in my own collection, I found a portable version of Dig-Dug I think would be preferable to the Evercade. Yes the playfield is small and has to scroll around, yes it’s four shades of monochrome, but it runs smoothly and SOUNDS CORRECT. I present to you a better portable version of Dig-Dug – the GameBoy game from 1992 that (oddly enough) was only released in North America!
