Name of a 90's pc game

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!

  1. 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.
  3. Wasn't digdug, my coworker suggested that one as well. Thank you though!

  4. 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.
  6. Might try GoG.com forums. Tons of retro gaming enthusiasts over there.

    Sounds like DigDug, though.
  7. Sounds just like Lode Runner - though that had an underground/mining theme. Perhaps it was one of the many clones.
  8. 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!!
  9. Yes, just one player.
