Pandora of the DRM Gamecast writes, "SteamWorld Dig is a very fun and addictive platform game. This game feels like a modern day take on the classic Dig Dug. Set in the Old West you are a rootin' tootin' robot named Rusty who sets out to mine and explore caves, gather minerals, orbs, and various upgrades all along the way down to the very bottom. Danger lurks with each swing of the pick axe and be careful not to let your lantern die. The lack of light can mean sudden death if you choose to press on, or you can play it safe and head back up to the top replenish your light.
