Digger T. Rock: Legend of the Lost City is an NES game developed by Rare, and released by Milton Bradley in February 1991.
Digger T. Rock, a brave little miner who dares to dig where no shovel has gone before! He just loves to uncover underground wonders. And he dreams of discovering a buried city bursting with golden treasures and ancient relics. On this very morning, deep within a craggy, slippery cave, Digger stumbles upon a half-hidden sign pointing way, way down...to a Lost City!
You control the title character, who is searching for treasure hidden in various caverns. Digger has multiple tools which are found and can be used to explore and uncover new areas. A timer in the game represents the time remaining until the door to the next level closes, but the timer can be reset by standing on a special pillar. Monsters such as moles and mosquitoes seek to kill the protagonist. The game is notable for the animation of the character's death, which shows a presumably time-lapse view of his body decaying with only his helmet remaining. It is noted among the most difficult games on the NES. I have never completed this game and have always got stuck at level 5.
And since the game is so short here is the complete game for those who wish to see what the game is actually like. I do love the music in this game, especially when you complete a level and you get the bonus stage, which were quite popular back then.
