This retroish arcade game puts you in a randomly generated cavern full of colorful ore as a mining robot, whose task is to mine randomly-generated caverns of their ore.

Controls can be found in the tutorial (which I highly recommend going through to understand the gameplay), but here's a brief list of single-player controls:
Arrow keys move the Minerbot.
Enter or F fire "collectors," devices that attach to ore veins and collect the ore within.

Minerbot was originally created under the name "A Greedy Profession" for a Mini Ludum Dare competition. It was very confusing back then. It still is a little confusing now, to some--but it has come a long way.

Enjoy mining!

first, very simple controls and a retro-style graphics
but the most impresive feature is the music, DUDE the music is Fantastic!!

although the game could have upgrades, it is good and very addictive.

pd: where can i find the music to download it?

im a sucker for retro games, i found this to be pretty intertaining. I like the idea of the game and the graphics, they gave a nice retro feel to it along with the sound. i think it could do with abit of work to make it abit more exciting to make it front page worthy tho, keep up the good work!
