Digger Man is an unreleased unlicensed game developed by Kyle Hodgetts for SNK's Neo Geo system (MVS version).

Overview[]

The players explore underground to catch diamonds, fruits, and jewels, which all give points. It's possible to get stuck in a lot of boulders, so a bomb function is available for everyone. But beware of getting caught in a bomb explosion or getting hit on the head by a boulder, as this will cost you.

Trivia[]

  • Digger Man's concept is based on Boulder Dash, which had many official versions released throughout the years.
  • Many assets are from Gururin, a 1994 puzzle game made by Face, also for the Neo Geo (MVS version). A lot of the graphics, and all the music/SFX, came from this game.
  • Despite the game being called Digger Man, the first player is actually a woman.
  • Comic Sans MS is used as a font, notably on the title screen and Press Start screen.
  • The game was going to be published by The Game Room, who had published several of Kyle Hodgetts' other arcade games, but it was canceled for unknown reasons.
