Description: Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder is a VR adventure game for 1-4 players, taking place in an alternative, weird west dieselpunk world. The player excavates the mountains of their claim, and encounters many mysteries along the way. The North is cold and the Frontier guards its secrets well!

Review: I have to say I did put a huge number of gameplay hours into Cave Digger, so I was looking forward to ‘Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder’, maybe a little too much. The good news is, this new version really is a vastly different game, but still keeps the core digging and mining experience. Only this time there is enemies, multiplayer mode and a whole mini world to explore outside of the mines. I’m not sure the game looks any better than the original, but the original wasn’t bad looking so that is not such a bad thing.

While it is still a little buggy right now and the multiplayer side of things feels like a ghost town I can easily say I give this the big thumbs up. Not only is the price right, but the amount of “potential” content on offer will easily justify it. Sure, the gameplay does get repetitive quickly, but nowhere near as quickly as the original. This is an easy one to recommend and I look forward to the multiplier side of things growing with time.
