My strategies for playing Dig Dug work almost as well on the Atari 5200. This is a very impressive port.

Looks like Mr. Troll has been active in the hour since I posted this score.

I just got lucky somewhat. On all the Atari Dig Dug games, I've learned that if I push the button towards the enemy as I push the fire button, let go of the joystick then push towards the enemy again while hitting the fire button again, I can inflate the enemies faster than if I just hold the direction button while continuously pressing the fire button. Of course, this is harder to pull off on these Atari 5200 controllers since they aren't self centering. But when it does work, I'm able to kill up to 3 enemies coming at a tunnel towards me. 

This game is good, the only problem with it that makes it inferior to the other version is that you can't drop rocks on the monsters as they're passing through the ground. That fact killed me early in the game. I was down to my last life at 30k, thus, I'm really fortunate to have gotten into a groove.

To my surprise, I still hold the World Tittle?  Are you still waiting on votes?

Wow this is still the only 5200 game I own a trophy for. I am neglecting the poor thing, I need to fire that puppy up.
