Introduction Any little boy can tell you about their fascination with heavy machinery for hours, and when it comes to the sort of heavy machinery that you use for doing things like moving earth, building roads, and lifting heavy weights? There are thirty challenges in the game, and the variety of jobs, while it sometimes seems to repeat pretty closely, still provides a satisfying play experience.

Use of these machines comes in two flavors — the almost story-like challenge mode, and the free play mode.
You dump a load into it and nothing happens. Heaven did not have anything on that stretch of street in Byron Bay that summer, I can tell you that! In a perfect world a game like this would be all doughnut and no hole, but sadly we do not live in a perfect world, which is part of the reason why I am only able to give Digger Simulator a 7.
Wimulator carefully weighing the replay potential and factoring in the fun factor that is present in this one, I arrive at a split decision when it comes to the acquisition rating for this game. Of course if your first instinct is to jump right into the free play mode just to see what these babies can do, well, we understand completely mate, and we do not hold that against you! There are thirty challenges in the game, and the variety of jobs, while it sometimes seems to repeat pretty closely, still provides a satisfying play experience.
Clearly this one was not going to a lab rat, my grin declared. The physics that have been applied to the earth is actually very impressive and manifests itself as a very realistic portrayal of how heavy machinery would impact the topsoil and, when you dig into a pile of gravel there is a very real sense of the heft and diggeer to it.

The remaining half-point was shaved off by the realization that much of what you are doing in the game is neither intuitive or explained. That is not a simple question to answer really…. Introduction Any little boy can tell you about their fascination with heavy machinery for hours, and when it comes to the sort of heavy machinery that you use for doing things like moving earth, building roads, and lifting heavy weights?
Local Media Group, Inc. This one is vanilla pure in language, situations, and content. Cape Cod Gaming Blog. The variety of hardware that you get to operate makes this one especially satisfying a simulation That is what it says on the back of the box anyway — and as it turns out it is actually a sequel to the original Digger Simulator that was, I am told by some mates who actually played that game, something of a dog.
Well I am happy to say that this sequel is no dog at all, what it is in existential terms is the closest thing to a time machine that I am ever likely to own.
Well, it took me back to the summer I was seven anyway, and provoked memories and feelings not felt for a very long time indeed! The selection of jobs tends to repeat but still offers an increasing level of challenge. By my second week they had provided me with a uniform shirt with my name embroidered on it, a white supervisor hard hat, and an official ID that clipped to my shirt declaring me to be a Road Quality Inspector.

Hours upon hours simulagor they will not grow bored as they tell you what their favorite machine is, how many wheels it has, how much it can lift, and all of the different jobs that it is capable of doing. The short list of the machinery that you get to play with in this title includes the classic digger with a wondrous variety of attachments, a bulldozer, a road roller, a wheel loader, and even a diger mixer!
That is not a simple question to answer really… I can say that I too was infected with a love for heavy equipment as a child — diggdr the government in its infinite wisdom during the summer of my seventh year on the planet decided that the road that we lived on in Byron Bay needed to be completely repaved, they brought in a variety of heavy equipment and they made one seven-year-old lad happier than he had ever been in his life.
IF you are a simulation fan, and you enjoy moving earth, digging holes, and the detail and repetition that is involved in the operation of heavy machinery, then Digger Simulator gets a solid BUY rating. The source of major point deductions originates in the poor modeling behavior in the game.
You were not told so specifically but it turns out that three full loads need to be dumped into the screening loader before it will automagically turn on diigger do its thing! Sadly there is no full-blown story mode here and you will not find yourself simulato and improving your own construction company, but there is a bit of story to be had, and you do earn money with which to purchase new equipment necessary in order to unlock some of the later missions and challengesand there is a sense of accomplishment in this.
As is usually the case with simulation games, there are a fair number of keys one has to get used to using and, no simualtor, the controls in the game are largely keyboard based, with the standard focus for movement placed upon the WASD combination.
As the crew moved further down the street for each new section, I moved with them, and I got to know them all on a first name basis. There is no accounting for what the young find to be wonderful, but it is understandable that, once she managed to obtain my solemn oath not to go near the road or any of the heavy equipment while it was being used, my mum arranged for a lawn chair and sun brolly and had my lunch packed for me each day so that I could supervise the construction process safely from the side of the road.
I can say that I too was infected with a love for heavy equipment as a child — when the government in its infinite wisdom during the summer of my seventh year on the planet decided that the road that we lived on in Byron Bay needed to be completely repaved, they brought in a variety of heavy equipment and they made one seven-year-old lad happier than he had ever been in his life.
The only missed bet here is that this is a single-player game with no multi-player challenges in it. The only violence is the weight of the earth dropping into the loaders! In fact the only events that top those wonderful three weeks of ximulator the destruction and repaving of our street are my marriage, and the births of my two kids.
