* OurElvesAreBetter: Although the elf is actually a fairy (a case of ArtisticLicenseMythology), she's the perfect elf. Annoying, arrogant and useless.

Added DiffLines:

* LamarckWasRight: Children inherit some of their parents' stats, which are improved by training.

Added DiffLines:

* StatGrinding: Diggles improve their skills through related activities. To improve stone working, they can dig; to improve woodworking, they can chop down mushrooms etc.


* GameMod: There are few, if any, mods. Although the game logic is written entirely in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tcl Tcl]] making minor tweaks very easy. There are numerous online manuals on making Diggles stronger, making enemies tougher, turning monsters into farm animals... [[CaptainObvious Of course]] there is [[RuleThirtyFour a nude patch]].

Added DiffLines:

* RandomlyGeneratedLevels: An odd case. The map of a black area is generated only when you order to dig through it. Thus restoring a saved game and digging through the same area again may have drastically different results.

Added DiffLines:

This game has no relationship with the diggles of ''VideoGame/DungeonsOfDredmor''.


''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?]]

* TwoAndAHalfD: The game employs a 3D-engine, but you can only move and build in two. The third is probably to look fancy.

The only advantage is the ability to play cutscenes with the same engine. The disadvantage was fairly high system requirements for its time.

!!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'.
