The first home conversion of Dig Dug was released for the Atari 2600 in 1983, developed and published by Atari, which was followed by versions for the Atari 5200, ColecoVision, Atari 8-bit family, Commodore 64 and Apple II. In Japan, the game was ported to the Casio PV-1000 in 1983, and later to the MSX in 1984 and the Nintendo Family Computer in 1985. Gakken produced a handheld LCD tabletop game in 1983, which replaced Dig Dug's air pump with a flamethrower to accommodate for hardware limitations. Namco released a Game Boy conversion in North America only in 1992, which featured an all-new game called "New Dig Dug" where the player must collect keys to open an exit door — this version was later included in the 1996 Japan-only compilation Namco Gallery Vol. 3, which also included Galaxian, The Tower of Druaga and Famista 4. A Japanese Sharp X68000 version was developed by Dempa and released in 1995, bundled with Dig Dug II. The Famicom version was re-released in Japan for the Game Boy Advance in 2004 as part of the Famicom Mini lineup.
