Dig Dug is a master of digging and pumping air, on a mission to to rid the underground of monsters. Our hero accomplishes this task by piercing the monsters with his airhose and then INFLATING them until their flesh is ripped from their very bones. As vicious as that sounds, the monsters can occasionally shed their corporeal selves, transforming into soil-defying ghosts. The music provides an interesting twist, as it only plays while Dig Dug is moving. The Game Boy version is worthy of special mention, featuring a New Dig Dug bonus game containing puzzle elements and even boss fights.
Dig Dug was inducted on April 16th, 2009.
