Description

Digger Dan DX is an updated version of the well regarded Digger Dan and Kaboom which was developed by Michael Waites of Four Horses and published on the Nintendo DSiWare platform by Virtual Playground. The graphics have been entirely replaced with higher resolution sprites, the sound effects have been improved, the levels have been re-ordered and gameplay has been tweaked slightly to better enforce the design of some of the levels.

History

Digger Dan started out as a programming exercise which quickly evolved into a full Nintendo DSi cartridge based game. After a few false starts and the launch of the DSiWare service, a publisher - Virtual Playground - was found to present the game to the public. Once the Nintendo 3DS was launched, Digger Dan was quickly ported to the console but it was put on ice until Michael was in a position to set up his own company, Four Horses, become a registered Nintendo devloper and find an artist to give the game a crisp new look.
