Dig2China takes place in an American neighborhood, particularly in the kid's backyard. In the game's intro scene, he is seen building the digger, and catches the attention of his neighbor, the bully. After explaining that he is digging to China, the bully doubts that he can do so, and continues to throughout the game. As the player purchases upgrades using money gained from treasure, the digger's performance is improved, allowing for it to dig deeper and more efficiently. Dig2China features 13 different layers that the kid must dig through, each featuring different enemies, fuel, obstacles, and treasure.
