Hello lovely pico community!
This is my first game ever released and is still in development. But I enjoyed the local discussions so much so couldn't wait to share. This is a tribute to my wife's favourite childhood game. The goal is to defeat all the fruits going for you. Don't let them touch you! Dig the holes, lure fruits in them and then fill up the hole to defeat a fruit. Some fruits need to fall from higher ground to be defeated.
More levels and polishes on the way. For now you'll have to manualy restart the cart on win and gameover.


  • Use arrows to move, you could climb ladders and drop from legdes and digged holes
  • Hold Z to dig a hole, you can't dig at the ground level.
  • Hold X to fill up a hole. If there is a fruit trapped at the time it will fall down.

UPDATE 21.02:
Added some background graphics.

@ultrabrite Thank you! Wow, I didn't realise it was that old... The game I was talking about is Drilling Billy, apparently an inspired game released in 96-97 I guess.

actually the real ancestor is "Space Panic" from 1980
also spawned the famous "Lode Runner"!

^Yeah Space Panic was the first thing I thought of too (played it on a friend's ColecoVision and at a local arcade), as I have L. Runner for the PC but holes automatically fill themselves on that one, so I thought it was more in the vein of S. Panic. (Obviously Drilling Billy and Roland Goes Digging are clones.)

Nice start, am looking forward to more being added to this :)
