Can You Dig It?

by otato - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My submission is a game called "Can You Dig it?". It is an action puzzle game requiring quick reflexes and some fast thinking to stay alive and progress into further and further into more difficult stages.

This one went better than my previous entry in my opinion. Only had one major regret, which was that I was unable to implement a "surface progress bar" showing how many levels down you had gone from the surface. Might be something to make it into the post-compo version :)

Anyways, I hope you enjoy my game!

I was having such a happy ore-harvesting fest until I ran into a cute lil' blob and violently exploded into a flamey death... In short, I love it! Really fun little game, great work! :D

I liked the graphics, they really fit the game. I could play this probably for hours, great time waster. Lots of fun, great job! :)

Nice work! I was so close to clearing out all the gold! Those red slimes are devious when they team up...

Can't play this, Unity webplayer is not available for Linux OS. Feel free to send me a tweet @tinyworlds if you export a Linux executable and I'll play your game.

Not bad, not bad at all.

The Linux version is working fine on my machine! :)
The game was fun, I really like the fast paced gameplay.
I was confused by the bar at the top - what's when the drill is full??
The graphics are good as well as the music.

All in all a fun small game I really enjoyed playing :)

Nice, but perhaps too difficult

Fun little game! I especially liked the HUD graphics. Didn't realize the blobs were evil at first - they look too cute!

Nice game, but the GUI goes over the field.

Interesting. I like the artwork, but the controls feel clunky. Regardless, a solid entry! Great job!

I know this is going to sound weird, but my favorite part was the UI! The gameplay was good and overall a polished fun little game.

The bombs are too cute to be bombs, didn't expect to blow up when I hit one. Good game!

Enemy character is so cute :D Controls are a little heavy-working but although your entry is nice, I spent my time quite good with it.

Pretty fun. The UI was pretty amusing.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
