Dig Dug hits the Xbox Live Arcade

Fairly mixed response over on MajorNelson.com to this game, mostly either people who love it or people who are wishing we’d stop with the ‘retro’ games already… I’m a bit on the fence here myself, I like these games (Dig Dug, Time Pilot, Pac Man…) but I’m pretty disappointed that they’ve been left so … ‘pure’ … I mean, I think it would be cool to have an ‘original’ game mode that only uses a fraction of the pixels of my TV, but I would really like to see another mode (one that I think would be really popular) where the graphics really are on par with what we’d expect on a 360.

I’m not suggesting changing the game, making Dig Dug into a FPS or anything, just redoing the graphics to take advantage of a 720p screen. Hell, even just scaling the game screen up to fill more of my screen would make me happy… even if it stayed blocky 🙂

What do you think?
