Diggles, or Wiggles in German, is a sidescroll strategy game that was released by Innonics in 2001. It never became very popular outside of Germany and even there it wasn't particulary notable for it's success. You manage a clan of Diggles, to look for and capture Odin's pet dog Fenris. On your journey down into the Earth you are joined by a fairy and meet other clans who compete in the race to capture Fenris. Because after all, everyone wants to be the ChosenOne, right? [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne Right?]]

----
!!This game provides examples of:

* TwoAndAHalfD: The game employs a 3D-engine, but you can only move and build in two. The third is probably to look fancy.
* DugTooDeep: The depths of Earth promise treasure and adventure. Adventure as in 'flesh-eating nasty things'.
* GameMod: There are few, if any, mods. [[CaptainObvious Of course]] there is [[RuleThirtyFour a nude patch]].
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Justified. Diggles like to drink, have sex, make gadgets and dig too deep.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Although the elf is actually a fairy (a case of ArtisticLicenseMythology), she's the perfect elf. Annoying, arrogant and useless.
* SuicideMission: A god tasks you to find his dog. His flaming, three-headed dog.
* TechnologyLevels: You start with sticks and stones and end up with a pseudo-nuclear reactor.
* TechTree: It even comes with the task and skill of 'Inventing'.
