Eager to unearth your inner archaeologist? In Tap! Dig! My Museum! there’s ample opportunity for excavation as you search for dinosaur fossils and restore a derelict museum to a hub of visitor activity.
Dig in to the beginning of the game where you’ll find yourself in a rundown spiderwebbed museum, where the only exhibits are piles of junk that, really, no one wants to see. Your mission is to restore the building to a thriving attraction – because visitors equal gold coins in your pot and gold coins in your pot equal level-ups for you and your museum.
But wait, back up a bit, what is a museum without anything to exhibit? Time to venture outdoors with your crew of eager excavators.
Every time your fossil hunt leads you to new pieces, they’ll be returned to the museum and added to a new dinosaur replica. When you eventually complete a new exhibit from the fossils you’ve found, the species name and the location where you dug it up will show on the map; that species will also be added to a book that displays your museum collection, where you’ll also find cool stats on how many visitors have seen each exhibit to date.
The snag is that you won’t know where exactly the fossils are buried, so try to find something before each turn runs out – digging up little by little is key. If you tap excessively on each go, the amount you can dig will reduce, so once you tap the soil, pay close attention to traces of precious fossils.
When you hit the right spots it’s an excavator’s dream: you might uncover a Triceratops, Pteranodon or Stegosaurus, among other interesting finds. And the more replica dinosaurs you’re able to display in your museum, the more people who will visit and pay coins – the amount they pay depends on their satisfaction level, which is a good incentive to curate an abundant fossil collection.
There’s a pleasant rhythm to life in Tap! Dig! My Museum! – you’ll soon refine a sharp eye for the tiniest of fossil fragments as you tap and dig, intuitively using fewer moves to find those bones. And watching as your museum starts to thrive with activity is a thrill for any archaeologist.
Now, excuse us, we seem to have stumbled across a Velociraptor to add to our collection – we can’t wait to show our visitors.
