“The game isn’t as good as hanging out with a real four-legged friend, but it has an irresistible charm that brings it pretty close.”
- TechRaptor


Play both Game Modes:

Bone Hunt – The roguelike treasure hunt. Dig for bones across four worlds of increasing difficulty. Battle enemies above perilous cliffs and sunken desert caves. Die a lot.

Free Dig – An endless digging experience. Dig through an infinite set of levels with minor challenge and no game overs. Progress is saved.

- Forge your own path as you creatively tunnel through each level.
- Travel to new worlds! Uncover stranger and more dangerous environments.
- Hunt for bones and treasure as you dive deeper.
- Discover shops and buy items, but don't get too greedy!
- A thumpin’ 8-bit soundtrack you’ll surely dig.


Many of my favorite games growing up were platformers. So when I started making games for iPhone, I was keen on building a proper platformer for the system. I think my first attempt, SHAARK!, turned out fun but also quite short.

Dig Dog is a much larger and richer experience. Each time you play, the levels are freshly generated. Of course the worlds get steadily harder, but as you dig more you’ll discover a variety of challenges and goals. Will you spend your coins on a helpful item at the shop in 1-3 or horde them in an attempt for a high score. Maybe you’ll try to unlock new Warp Bones or try and beat all 4 worlds without dying. Or maybe just chill out in Free Dig mode with some cathartic digging.

I love destructive environments. You can pretty much dig up a whole level if you want. (Although that can be quite dangerous.)

As you dig more, you may start to find some of the game’s hidden depths. For instance, if you fast stomp on an enemy you’ll create sparks that ripple to the left and right. These sparks are both useful and dangerous. It depends on when and how you use them.

I hope you enjoy Dig Dog. I think there’s a lot to uncover here!

A new favorite!

I looked at the reviews before buying and I’m surprised this isn’t 5 stars across the board! Some reviewers might play this game and think it’s suppose to be something else then what it is, and for them it’s a shame.. because this game is plenty challenging enough with high scores of speed, coin collection, and level completion. The only hard part to figure out is which score to make an attempt for!

Definitely on my font app page for when I need to kill time or brag to my boyfriend. A must buy for sure!

Super Fun And Addictive

I’ve had this app since day one, and it is a super fun retro style game where a dog searches for a bone. It really doesn’t have any glitches nor does it have any lag.

My main suggestions are to not put things on the GameCenter leaderboards that haven’t been added yet and to add some kind of thing to the leaderboard regarding Free Dig.

Really easy to get into

I really really like this game. It’s has a good challenge progression to it (starting off sort of easy and then getting more difficult). It’s also very easy to pick up and put down. If you have two minutes or ten, this is a great way to kill some time
