Author's Description: In SnowDiggers you play one of two bitter enemies (currently only two-player games are supported) who have been caught together in an avalance, and now have to race eachother throught the debris, up to the surface.

In the way between you and the top are such things as; snow (which can be shuffled between different places), iceblocks, rocks, etc - you will get closely aquainted with them all, as they fall on your head and send you down spinning into the abyss. leaving your sweet dreams of victory behind, to the sound of the sniggering of your evil opponent!

You can win by either getting first to the surface, or by outpacing your opponent by so much that he has no chance of winning. -The camera follows the player that is the furthest up; so if one player gets too far behind, he won't be able to see his character on the screen :)

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 6.0
  • 6This game is going to be GOOD! I am only giving it 3 at this point. When sound is in there, perhaps some monsters and things to pick up? Then it will be a shining 5. The most promising upcoming game on Allegro.cc at the moment in my mind! Lovely feel!
