Despite how much we have explored, the earth still holds so much mystery, especially what lies below our feet and Diggy tries to explore that. However, instead of taking place on Earth, this game is set on the Moon. Although expeditions and analyses of the big floating rock orbiting around the world have revealed quite a lot, one can only wonder about the kinds of things that would be uncovered if you started drilling and didn't stop. As an ambitious little astronaut, you're looking to strike it rich on the moon by digging deep and gathering every goodie you can find.
Along with mining games, digging is a well-known concept in games. Even if we don't know what dangers lie below, we'll risk everything to dig down just to see how far we can go. This game actually encourages that kind of behavior, in fact, it's exactly how you play it. You're driven by a desire to go as deep as you can while collecting as much as you can. There's a brief time for breaks in between digs, but you'll not linger for too long. The astronaut is eager to get back to digging and you'll be right there with them.
How to Play
Diggy is a 2D game about digging into the center of the Moon using either the mouse or the keyboard. As soon as the game starts, the astronaut will start digging down with a drill through multiple layers of rock and dirt. You can use the left mouse button and cursor to control their trajectory or use the arrow keys. The astronaut will always be moving down so you'll just be in charge of steering them left or right. While digging, you'll want to lead them to any minerals that you can. When they make contact with any mineral, it'll be converted directly into cash.
The astronaut will be able to keep digging as long as they have fuel which is indicated by a blue bar on the left side of the screen. When it runs out, the day will be over and you'll be taken to the upgrade shop. This is where you can spend the mineral money that you've collected on upgrades to improve elements like your drill, fuel, mineral frequency, value, and more. The goal is to dig as far as you can, earn as much as you can, and then buy every single upgrade available.
Tips and Tricks
There's some randomization in the game meaning that you'll need to rely on luck to get a good loadout. Each day, you should always aim to go for batches of minerals and always prioritize anything that looks different. Flowers are especially valuable, so stay alert for those.
