Diggers VS Lemmings on the Amiga

I would be interested to know if, to some of you, Diggers (1993, Millenium) can be an interesting approach to the Lemmings phenomenon.

It's an AGA enhanced, and it's grade on lemonamiga.com is even higher than the original Lemmings'.

From 3 users.

It is up to you to set score correctly.

I never played Diggers. Played enough Dig-Dug on arcades.

Well, I appreciate reading commentaries and reviews without grades sometimes, as giving a grade might not always involve the same degree of thinking.

For example, I gave a higher grade than I thought they deserved to a few games on lemonamiga.com, mainly because I disagree with the average score for this particular game.

So no candidate to give a push to Diggers ?

Damn I hate lemmings...

Only tried diggers once, and failed to get the idea, didn't bother to read the manual, so the cd stand in my collection collecting dust

That's the point of an average score you idiot!

I don't think so...

Just seeing the massive flaw with having a "rating system" and "stupid users"

Let's face it, Lamings exist on almost all systems, while diggers don't. I wonder why?!

NOT!

Exclamation

@KG :
Read in the SPS sticky, FJRB said :
"Let us all be nice with each other. We are all Amiga fans."

By the way, if your trouble comes from the impression I might not appreciate Lemmings at all, you're wrong : Oh no ! More Lemmings is indeed on my exported-from-GBA fav. list, which can be accessed on my ENG Download Pad.
I just felt not necessary to be adding each and every version of Lemmings to it.

Is there a chance Diggers outshines Lemmings on the multiplayer level, may be ? Or may be Diggers is not the closest thing to a Lemmings clone.

I wasn't calling you an idiot for your like/dislike of either game, it was for your voting for a game to get it's score up.

I actually like diggers and I hate lemmings, although diggers gets boring quickly. Too repetitive with not enough challenge.

From time to time Lemon (both) come under attack from up/down voters who do nothing but vote 10 or 1 in an attempt to screw up the averages. It's amazing how idiots always have the most free time.
