SteamWorld Dig (3DS) Cheats & Tips
Cheats, codes, tips, hacks, how to's, and walkthroughs
Tips/Guides: Dig Deep
Since you cannot dig up, always dig in weaving patterns, which will give you the opportunity to jump back up higher if needed. Also use your teleporters wisely. The best loot is the deepest down.
Tips/Help: Don't Hoard
Don't hoard. If you die, you'll lose half the mined gold you are carrying. It's better to carry what you need and store the rest in the mine.
Tips/Hints: Master the Wall Jump
Remember: Rusty doesn't just dig, he can wall jump. Mastering this will get you to otherwise inaccessible parts of the map full of loot.
