Lazy Raiders (originally Dig It Up) is a video game developed by Sarbakan and published by Microsoft on Xbox Live Arcade. It was available for download on February 24, 2010.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Lazy Raiders uses a “World-Flip” mechanic that allows the player to flip and spin the entire world, which allows gravity to move objects (such as Dr. Diggabone, boulders, minions and thieves) through mazes. The game has 80 levels set in three different settings: Seven Cities of Gold, Arctic Caves and Wild West. There are 12 XBLA Achievements to collect.

Development[edit | edit source]

Lazy Raiders was originally intended for the Wii, but Sarbakan abandoned that venue, rather opting for XBLA. The game was created using 3DVIA's Virtools, a complete 3D development platform. The game allows players to substitute Dr. Diggabone with their own XBLA Avatars and unlock two Avatar Awards: Dr. Diggabone’s safari hat and outfit.

Reception[edit | edit source]

IGN gave the game a 8/10, describing it as “one of the most polished and good looking XBLA games we've played in a while.[1]
