Dig Dug Achievement Advice

Maybe I was too forward in titling this thread 'advice', as I'm not going to add anything new that hasn't already been covered in the excellent achievement guides available on this site.

All I wanted to do was to suggest to the people that are after this achievement that the 3/10 difficult rating given in the achivement guide is in my opinion a tad optimistic.
All the other achievements are very easy, but this can be a pain in the ass to do. Be patient and realise it may take you a good few hours to do.

When I got the achievement I literally died as I dug the last piece of dirt. On each of my lives I dug enough of the map that the music had changed and the little enemies were going mad after me. Even then, I got at least 15-30 seconds extra digging before they got me.

Be patient, persevere, and don't expect just because the guide says 3/10 in difficult that you'll get this achievement immediately (although if you do, fair play to you!! )

It took me about 10 tries, you just need to make sure you have dug at least half before you lose your first life.

This achievement is impossible. Mainly because the digger runs in a complete different direction than pressed on the D-Pad. I'm giving up on this achievement for the 6th time or so. Too bad I can't delete the game from my list anymore. : /

This game is no classic at all and just awful.

Thanks for the info - I don't feel quite as aggravated now. Hoping to finish this off this weekend.
