@Neil - DataSoft never released this or any other game on cartridge. You must be thinking of Oil's Well or another game.
Brings back memories, I had this as a cartridge when I got the my Atari (my 1st computer) when I was about 8 or 9, like #Gwobby has mentioned, once you get past as certain level (25?) it doesn't get any harder, I remember playing this till about level 98 before realising there's no end screen so just turned the Atari off and went for lunch.
Similar to Dig Dug with some key differences, namely your mine fills up with water! Fantastic theme music.
Fun game but flawed for the advanced player as doesn't get any harder after level 25 or so and so many extra men making it too easy!
