Hey weird, this game is actually fun, has a good difficulty level, & makes me want to come back & play more.

And here I thought it was just going to be annoying!

23,345 after a few games. Not that the left arrow in the enter-your-initials screen doesn't actually move your cursor left but instead puts a big left arrow in your initials. Cute.


Thanks,
-Jason

37,186. For some reason, those frogs creep me out.
Since entering the name is too tedious, I shall henceforth be known as 'AAA'.

Super Glob instead of The Glob. Apparently they are the same. Initials setting is up/down = back and foward, button = set.

The two issues with this game are controls accuracy , and uglies appearing right next to or even right on you.

DAMMIT!  My machine is down for the count right now, and this is one of my favorite games.  Don't know how I found it but I got addicted to this game really quick..
I'm going to try to get the machine up again this week so I can put in my effort.

55,812. I know it's already past the deadline, but it's a new high score.



Mr. Peabody, your turn to give us the next challenge.

ROM name = digdug2 (new version)
                    digdug2o (old version)

I don't know the difference between these two, but I think that the new version is there for a reason.

settings: 3 lives
             extra lives 30k 80k and...
