W/Up Arrow: Jump on land or swim up in water. A,D/or Left and Right Arrows: Move left or right. You may also move off the edge of the screen and appear at the same point on the other side of the screen. S /Down Arrow: Dig! Pushing down will always demolish the ground beneath you.
You can dig yourself all the way down to hell if you know what you're doing if not, you'll just die. In Dig Yourself to Hell you take on the role of a pixel-bit person who has only a pick axe and the will to make it 666 meters down! Worm your way through distant Earth as you smash and claw at the rocks and mud beneath your feet. Avoid torches and green underground slugs that will zap your energy. There is also a lot of water that will drown you if you don't move it around properly. Keep an eye on your food, oxygen, and health levels. Each of them will fall as time goes by and you'll be forced to replenish or die trying! Food can be found throughout the tunnels, try to get as much as you can whenever you see it. Oxygen can be found when you're drowning by just swimming to the top of the water and your health only decreases after encounters with enemies and torches. When you die you will become an angel and ascend to heaven or become a demon and descend to hell but you have six lives and can keep your progress in the tunnels.
