Find the right path through the sand!
Dig This is a logic, physics-based, ball-and-cup game set underground. A player's main objective is to aid the movement of one or more balls stuck in sand into cups by digging tunnels.
The game features 20 levels in the Sandbox mode environment. It then transitions to additional levels in Multi-Color and Boombox! modes. As the levels progress, the process becomes more complex. Instead of merely creating the best shaped and directional tunnel, the player must contend with obstacles, such as stationary barriers and rods and non-stationary sticks, stones and wooden crates.
Dig This is based heavily on real-world science, which means that the player uses geometry and physics, including force, gravity, speed, friction and other ideas, along with creative, out-of-the-box thinking to help each ball reach a cup. In some levels, for example, the player might need to use the weight of a stone, gravity, the shape of a tunnel and momentum to push another object out of the ball's way.
Unlike many similar games, Dig This doesn't assign points. The only objective is to complete each level successfully. The player can even skip levels if they become stuck and want to switch temporarily to a different challenge.
