You must mine your way to riches by mining for minerals and gems to sell.


It was a great game, I played it before and found it lack luster, but after making it through that first town it was better than I thought. Seems many people have problems with the movement but I found no problems there except in the later mines, but the color seemed to be to indicate that it was harder material to dig through.
The big problem I had was with the losing of health. I get that the dynamite hurts you when you use it, but there was no indication that you would be damaged when you hit a rock, you do.
Seems also everyone had a problem with money management, I made it to the third mine and had the game beat, I only kept playing to finish it all out, and made it to retirement with 126K. All I can say is be careful with your money and don't waste it on health potions, just anti venom. If you always keep 1 dynamite it'll take care of the rocks and there is no need for the jackhammer.

So all in all, not a bad game, just a slight one trick pony.

This was really cute and just what I was looking for. My only critique would be that it would be great if the game was entirely controlled by the keyboard.

lol bad moving animation XD

Gotta walk over the spot for the hidden gem. Don't rely on dynamite so much.

I played it, beat it. It was ok.
