National Game Registry: Mr. Do!

United States Library of Congress

MR. DO!
original platform
arcade (1982, Universal)

At first glance, Mr. Do! appears to be a Dig Dug clone, as they share the element of digging and even a similar look.  However, there are several gameplay differences that set Do! apart.  Instead of eradicating each screen’s pests, Mr. Do! must eat all of the displayed fruits, somewhat like Pac-Man.  Mr. Do! can dislodge heavy items to squash his enemies or he can launch a power ball, which takes some time to recharge.

Mr. Do! was inducted on April 16th, 2009.
