Very fun and addicting game.


I actually found this to be pretty good once I was able to figure out how to play the game. I thought at first I wouldn't be able to understand, but I got it eventually. The graphics are fairly nice in this. There was this tavern I was supposed to build at first, but I didn't have enough money for it. I then realized I had to start blowing up the bombs in order to get gold. It's a pretty easygoing game overall.

The sounds and music weren't bad either. I think my favorite part was how smoothly the truck seemed to move. It's not that elaborate, but it doesn't really need to be. It's simply fun to see stuff blow up and then rebuild from what happened. It's fairly original.

Really addictive game, great for making time fly past.

Waaaay too long. It's actually a nice game, and the artwork is lovely, but once you've maxxed everything out it's just grinding. Also, the furthest plot from your drop off point may as well be on the moon as far as mining it is concerned.
