Digger Dan DX is certainly effective at mining the past, pun not intended. Using the tried and tested formula seen in titles like Boulder Dash and Digger T. Rock, players must guide the titular Dan through a series of hazard-strewn mines by working out pathways and avoiding traps. Although it has been done before, the game works well as...

Kid Tripp and Digger Dan DX are both currently free and will be free for the remainder of the eShop's life, Four Horses has revealed. (Thanks for the tip, Dogorilla!)...
25 extra caves to dig through
Earlier in the year the rather charming Digger Dan DX was taken down from the 3DS eShop - First Star Software, which owns the rights to Boulder Dash, had issued the takedown. Thankfully the matter was resolved, and developer Four Horses has been working to get Digger Dan back on the store. The good
"We have already settled this issue to our mutual satisfaction"
At the weekend we reported on the news that the likeable title Digger Dan DX had been removed from the 3DS eShop due to a takedown notice from First Star Software, the company which owns the rights to the thematically similar Boulder Dash. It would appear that this problem has now been...
Nintendo plans to take the game off the eShop
Digger Dan DX is a recent arrival on the 3DS eShop, which revamped and expanded upon DSiWare title Digger Dan & Kaboom. We rather liked it in our review, appreciating its blend of puzzles and mining, comparing it to the likes of Boulder Dash and Digger T. Rock. That comparison may

Digging in on 19th May
Digger Dan & Kaboom was a rather neat DSiWare title, and developer Four Horses has been working to bring it to the 3DS eShop in an improved form with Digger Dan DX. Having previously cited a Summer release before stating th
A new area is also shown off
Digger Dan & Kaboom was a very decent DSiWare title, and so we were pleased to hear recently that it's coming to the 3DS eShop as Digger Dan DX. Publisher Four Horses has now confirmed that it's due a little sooner than expected. In the original announcement it was pegged for a late Summer releas
A fresh take on Digger Dan and Kaboom
The DSiWare platform has plenty of well-constructed and enjoyable puzzle games, with Digger Dan & Kaboom being an example; we rather liked it in our review. Now publisher Four Horses is sprucing it up for a 3DS eShop release this summer, rebranding it as Digger Dan DX. In this
Digger Dan has found an old mine full of caves, still brimming with treasure.
Can you guide him in the right direction by digging through the earth to collect the gems and nuggets of gold? Work out your path carefully as you push rocks out of the way or you could find Dan caught in one of the many traps.
As you dig deeper and deeper through the 100 caves, you will uncover secret gems buried in the earth, unravel the mysteries of the wormholes which transport you around the level, blow holes in walls with the abandoned barrels full of TNT and collect pickaxes to release gems that are trapped in rock.
Challenge yourself to complete the cave, beat the timer and collect the hidden secret gem on every level.
- Four themed areas
- Stereoscopic 3D layering
- High score tables for every level
