Nothing but old, yet still-functioning mining equipment here. Maybe they shouldn't have DugTooDeep...



** CircusOfFear \\
[[CreepyCircusMusic Scary music]], [[TheFreakshow freaky performers]], [[MonsterClown killer clowns]]... the circus has come to town indeed. Expect gratuitous platforming sequences of TightropeWalking and trapeze swinging.



* BuildLikeAnEgyptian \\
A big, old, sandy pyramid, commonly found in the ShiftingSandLand. If the devs are feeling particularly creative, you might get a big, old, sandy sphinx instead, complete with a puzzle or [[RiddleOfTheSphinx riddle]] that you have to solve in order to get the treasure inside.

Videogames, especially {{Platform Game}}s, take place in a wide variety of different environments. As time has gone by, some of these environments have evolved into their own tropes. Some are more common to one genre than others, while others are almost universal, taking different forms depending on the genre. These almost always have their own style of music to match the level theme.
