iPhone and iPad Game App for Students
Can U Dig It! challenges players to carefully collect rare artifacts using logic and strategic thinking.
The game contains 53 dig sites located in the Maya cities of Tikal and Caracol. Each site is a puzzle made up of squares that randomly contain rare Mayan artifacts, such as ancient tools, weapons, and jewelry. Numbers ranging from one to 10 are scattered across the grid, indicating the number of adjacent squares that can be safely excavated without damaging an object. Kids will tap into their inner treasure seekers and use logical deduction to reveal all of the empty squares, meaning they successfully located all artifacts. Can U Dig It! is available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch via the iTunes App Store.

We wanted to give players an entertaining, yet challenging puzzle game that can be easily played anytime, anywhere, said Suzi Wilczynski, president and founder of Dig-It! Games. Featuring a unique artifact collection accessible throughout the game, Can U Dig It! teaches players about the ancient Maya culture while enthralling them in fun, thought-provoking puzzles. The game encourages friendly competition both independently but also amongst players around the world via the Apple Game Center leader board embedded into Can U Dig It!. Featuring two play mode options, Plan and Dig, users can either strategically calculate moves or dig on the go while avoiding excavation tools and puzzle obstacles in the stunning, high-resolution site environments developed in part with FableVision Studios.
