Thought of by video game philistines as little more than a Dig Dug knockoff, Mr. Do! is indeed much more. Players guide the title character (a clown) as he digs tunnels, harvests his cherry orchard and throws a magic power ball at (or drops apples on) an assortment of goofy-looking enemies, including Alphamonsters. Destroying these alphabetical creatures, which are released by eating a food item in the center of the screen, can spell out EXTRA, which grants players an extra life. Occasionally, a diamond will make a brief appearance. If captured, this gem is worth 10,000 points and will advance the action to the next screen. Despite less-than-cute graphics and unfortunate comparisons to Dig Dug, Mr. Do! is a great game with endless strategies, a variety of playfield arrangements and a whimsical, circus-like musical score. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
