NCS Product Synopsis
Update: Sept 9, 2005

«©NCSX» Pooka and Fygar dust off their hides and are back to battle a new generation of diggers. Massive monsters are raising a ruckus and an urgent call goes out to Susumu Hori aka Mr Driller. The original Dig Dugger, Taizou Hori, intercepts the message and thinks to himself, "I'm not dead yet, I can do everything that whippersnapper of a son can do!" (or something like that) and heads off to battle monsters in Susumu's stead.

   In the NDS update of a retro classic, the top screen depicts a bird's eye view of the level while the lower screen shows off the action from a side view... or an ant's eye scope. Taizou battles minor henchmen such as Pooka and Fygar but the ultimate goal is to destroy the entire island and subsequently the monster overhead by releasing gigantic red spikes that are holding the land mass together. Once the fault lines are loosed and crumbling, the entire chunk of land on the side of the fault plunges into the ocean. Plan properly and the monster will slip into the sea as well. Along with a versatile pump which snakes out to puncture and inflate monsters, a variety of objects scattered underground may also be used to destroy creatures including bombs that are triggered once Taizou walks through them, moving mines, and rocks that plunge upon pursuers once they're loosened. Hori may also dig out tunnels to allow water, quicksand, and lava to flow freely. Fragments of items may also be located to unlock new stages and retrieve special power-ups which allow Hori to call upon Susumu who provides air support by dropping ordnance on the rampaging monster.

   Two players may face off in head-to-head action where gamers pump each other up. One player controls Taizou while the other takes hold of Ataru Hori, another son of Taizou. Two mini-game parodies are included in the game: Horivalou which is a take on Solvalou of Xevious fame and Hori X, a remake of Rally X. A total of 15 stages split into 80 levels are featured in the game.
