Dig Master is a thrilling 2D mining and digging game for Android which you can now download as an apk. These types of games have been popular for decades. Perhaps the slow progress through the earth, reminiscent of leveling up or grinding through an RPG game, is the most addictive factor. Or it’s the fact that you can collect yummy loot!
What makes Dig Master a good addition this popular genre?
Honestly, Dig Master is a very simple game. Everything about it is easy to get into. Not a difficult interface at all, the items you need to collect are all very straightforward (think diamonds, TNT, etc) and there isn’t MUCH challenge.
However, the graphics are cute, the music is fun and the gameplay is still compelling. At the start of each of your mining missions you have to do one of those reaction-based actions. Hit the marker in the right spot and you’ll get a modifier for how far down into the earth you’ll get flung. Hit that Insane modifier and tunnel deep, deep down into the rock! More goodies down there to collect.
The problems with Dig Master and free games in general
Playing through Dig Master has given us a example of why great games like this often receive such poor ratings on the Google Play Store. For example, Dig Master has a rating of 3.6 with over 1 million downloads.
Know what the problem is?
Dig Master has a lot of advertisement in it. Obviously, these free games have to turn a profit for their developers somehow. Especially with the design costs behind a game like this.
However, rather than the ocassional image ad or 5 second video, Dig Master is packed full of 30 second long adverts. CONSTANTLY. At least, it feels constant.
Our recommendation is to connect to the internet solely to download the apk of Dig Master, then stick your phone on Airplane Mode to get rid of those frustrating adverts!
