Now we are going to translate description.

he Original Sandbox GameThis "strategic digging game" was published two years before Dig Dug.

Takaya Arita, currently a professor at Nagoya University, published Space Cavern in the July 1980 issue of the Japanese computer magazine I/O. The article that introduced it began by discussing the numerous clone games already available at the time:

Like fools, we rely on games offered for our favorite platforms that are published in magazines, but lately, they seem to have all become so simple, demanding too little of the player’s intelligence and creativity. Now a game has been created that makes us stand up and cry, “Let’s do this!!”

As this quote illustrates, Space Cavern was extremely addictive because it allowed players to express their imaginations, was densely packed with pure fun, and was highly innovative. It gained incredible popularity and was ported to a wide range of 8-bit computers of that era.

In addition to the original version, this masterpiece compiles two arranged versions that modify frustrating parts of the original with modern gameplay, in addition to enhanced features and two-player co-op. That’s three games in one!

What's more, these arranged versions feature graphics supervised by Hiroshi “Mr. Dotman” Ono, who drew the artwork for many early Namco games, including Pac-Man, Dig Dug, and Xevious. The soundtrack was created by the acclaimed game music composer Yuzo Koshiro, whose work includes such classics as Streets of Rage, The Revenge of Shinobi, and Shenmue. Together they form the complete package of Space Cavern 3671, “The Greatest Underground Operation in the Galaxy”!
