My sister and I have been trying to remember the name of a PC game we used to play as kids.

Problem is, we can't remember much about it. I can't remember if it was an online game or a CD ROM or what the year was.

It is a level based game where you're digging up dirt in gardens, climbing up ladders, and pulling up flowers/veggies, and avoiding the pests in the garden. I cannot remember what the main character or player is. It was a one player game. Any help/ideas appreciated!

DigDug? That's an 80s arcade game, but yours might have been a remake.

I can say that you can rule out DigDug but other than that I'm no help.

Can you describe the game a bit more? Is it a side scroller; vertical scroller; do you stay above ground or dig down; anything?

Mr Do just came to mind maybe but that doesn't sound right either and that was arcade / console, not sure about PC.

It was a vertical scrolling game. You started at the bottom and had to work your way to the top by crossing horizontal planes of dirt/grass, and climbing up ladders. You had to avoid the pests by digging holes for them to fall into. It was made up of both grass and dirt elements, I think you could do different things depending on what you were standing on. As you were walking across the planes, you would encounter veggies/flowers and you would dig those up, but I cannot remember what they would allow you to do. I wish I could remember more.

Might try GoG.com forums. Tons of retro gaming enthusiasts over there.

Sounds like DigDug, though.

Sounds just like Lode Runner - though that had an underground/mining theme. Perhaps it was one of the many clones.

I'm the sister!! We are desperate! I would best describe it as a platform game. Your character is maybe a bunny or a chicken?? We can't really remember! But the premise of the game is digging up and eating plants and fruits/vegetables. You climb up ladders and can even eat through the dirt sometime to move up vertically in the game, which takes you to harder levels. I BELIEVE there was a farmer in the game that would chase you, or something that would chase you, but I really can't remember! I even remember hopping along clouds at some of the highest points of the game (Molly do you remember that too?!).

PLEASE HELP US!!
