I Dig It
InMotion Software, LLC
I Dig It is an extremely addictive title. It may have hit the App Store all the way back in 2009, but it's definitely still worth playing. Especially now it's free.
In this game, you take on the role of a farmer's friend who's converted an old bulldozer into a futuristic high-tech digging machine. Your job is to tunnel downwards through the earth and find valuable items that can be sold off in order to pay your buddy's mortgage.

Fallen on hard times, farmer Lewis converts an old bulldozer into a fantastic high-tech “diggin” machine. Help him dig up stuff to sell (60+ unique diggings) in a race against the clock to pay the mortgage and save the farm (campaign mode).
In addition there are 8 mini-game challenge matches, plus open-ended free play mode and even a tutorial game mode for beginners, offering hours of game play.
Manage fuel, temperature, and damage while searching for diggins. Sell them at the farmhouse to earn cash. Save cash to pay the mortgage, upgrade your digger, or make repairs. Use the on-screen “analog” joystick, or touch-screen to control digger movement. Watch out for rocks and caverns that disrupt your path. Have fun!
