Mineral Rush: Runes Zero is a game where you have to mine to find minerals, you then smelt your ores with coal. And you can buy and smith equipment to mine more efficient. You sacrifice rocks for runes for power ups, and finish quests.

The Barbarian Paulous is jealous of your mining skills, so watch your health.

Will you ever defeat him?


Reminds me of Cookie Clicker, but it's not at all like the generic 'clicker' clones that keep coming out. This is how you take an existing idea and build on it. I approve of this game.

really cool game but i still wonder one thing can you survive the death rune if you have more than 100 health

Those RuneScape items again lol

Not bad definitely an improvement over the original finally stones have a use so it's not so frustrating when you collect them.

Thank you! I'm glad you think it's an improvement.

This is a very very good game!
I have spent around 15 hours playing this game and still can't get the "fist of fortune" and "tricking death" medal.

the clicking makes my arms sore, maybe some upgrade about clicking could be added, say autoclicking maybe?

There is a bug, when the number of a curtain object reached 10mil, the font size of the numbers will be lowered, but the one with the gold ore will not, that is, I have aroudn 788mil gold ore, yet the number is still very big. (although I don't know about the stones and the dragonstone ore if they have the same bug)

Another bug (seldom occur) is that when i try to save the game, it turns out to load my last save instead of saving it and turns out losing all my stuff up to the last safe.

I like the fact that the numbers can go way beyond 2147483647 which is the limit of int.
How do you do that? is it long int? or unsigned long int?

and I just died from the killing rune :P haha, I may not play it again, but it is a really good game!

two more things,
1. HP can go beyond 100 by using the HP+ rune, but when I quit game and open it next day, I find that my Hp drop back to 100. I wish I can keep my extra hp.
2. When the game refresh, say quit and open it on the next day, the pickaxe option changed back to the basic axe, I wish it will automatical change to the best axe, e.g. If i have the dragonstone axe, I would like to set the default axe as the dragonstone axe rather than the basic axe.

Btw, why would you set up a fist option for mining? it's funny, but why...

Hi, thanks for the commet!
I don't think I want an auto miners/autoclickers, it would be too much like cookie clicker.
Noted the gold bug, I will fix it in the next patch.

The saving bug is bad, I know, just in case it might happen, I ask everyone to save frequently. I'm not sure why this happens.

I don't know what unsigned long int and long ints are, but I just used the default value for numbers. Too bad the Newgrounds scoreboards doesn't go over 2147483647 :P

It's unfortunate that you died to the rune. If you manage to get more than 125 health, you will not die by the rune of death no matter what. You will just lose 100 health.
I will look into how I can save the bonus health.
I will probably make the default pickaxe change to the best one, good suggestions.

Well, I had the fist option because, yes, it's for fun. Some of the reason was that people could get the option to pick between tools at the very start, so it's less forgetable, I suppose.

The fist of fortune medal should be somewhat easy to guess based on the name, but if you want an extra hint, It's what I just talked about :P
