Sure wish i had the option to Continue... I'm sure I have to pay for that... Other than that, great game but I have to have it open or play til it's done.. not fun

I remember this game being one of the best. Certainly one of the best mining games out there.

I never got around beating this game, and I really want to do it, but when it tries to load a video, they don't work! They were the best part, telling the story!
What is wrong?

I'm finding it hard for me to stop playing this game, as I keep restarting the game from the beginning when ever i'm done with this game. Truly a work of art man.

It's my 9th time restarting this again as I write this. I hope everyone has fun playing this game as I do.

So this took me a few lazy hours to complete and I enjoyed it all. The story was interesting and the whole concept of the plot kind off hooked me into this game. The graphics are outstanding generating a good feeling as you mine the various levels. The soundtrack could be a bit repetitive at times but otherwise it was good.

However the ending left me wishing for a sequel so please do one. All in all, I give it a 4 starts. why? Because it's really good for a flash game, the only bad thing was the backgrounds that was somewhat generic after a while and the color choice, it could be somewhat be troublesome going through the crafting section. As for the music it was enjoyable but like I said, it became somewhat repetitive.
