In the 2013 remaster of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the Egg Digger is one of the two sixth bosses in the game, along with Brass Eggman. It is possible to skip this boss fight if the player goes to Hidden Palace Zone in Mystic Cave Zone Act 2.
The player encounters the boss vehicle on an empty hallway, where no one is seen. When the battle begins, the screen rumbles, round and spiky rocks fall from the ceiling and Robotnik himself arrives with his upgraded Eggman Mobile with two drills. When the rocks start falling down, the player must dodge the spiky ones as they can damage the player when touched. After arriving, Robotnik will drill though the ceiling with his drills in a vertical position. He will then shift his drills in a horizontal position and attempt to ram into the playable character. After this, he will return into the ceiling and the process will start over, repeating the pattern again. The player has to also avoid touching the drill and motor parts of the vehicle and attack when Robotnik is not pointing them in the vertical position.
The Egg Digger takes eight hits to defeat, after which the player can open up the Capsule and finish the Zone.
