Left, Right and Down to drill/move. Press up to shoot mine, if you have.


A decent concept, but poorly implemented. There is no skill involved at all. How far you get is determined entirely by how nice the random number generator decides to be.

When I first saw this game I thought it will be either a ripoff or an improved version of Motherload, another very good drilling game with similar mechanics that can be found on newgrounds. However this is a game with very different gameplay despite similar mechanics. For anyone liking this drilling mechanics I suggest trying Motherload which is a bigger and more complex game, but not as fast paced.

The good thing about this game is medals. Having achievements is crucial to the unending kind of score grinding (no pun intended) gameplay, to have players have a goal and keep playing. The max achievement of 200 meters is very well calibrated, because it is difficult to achieve but not impossible.

Music, sounds, graphics are okay.

Things to improve:

- Most important thing to improve is to increase the screen vertically. As it is now player can't see the bottom of a hole that is made with a bomb blast, so it is always a leap of faith, and there can be lava down there. The screen must be high enough for player to see bottom of he blasted hole and aim his fall or use another bomb. This is a major issue that costs at least half a star in my rating.A

- A more minor issue is with lave spreading over items. While lave seemingly doesn't consume drills and bombs it can destroy the miner if it stands on the other side of an item, which is counter-intuitive. Either lava should just consume items too or not spread over them.

On overall a fun game

Well...at least it is a working MSPaint game. Newgrounds truly sank very low that I have to give stars because a game actually works :)

It is a decent timewaster. The randomization is good when it comes to pickups however it horrendous when applied to the lava. The lava spreads randomly which makes no real sense. If you drill next to it it either pours into the new cave or it won't. It is completely random therefore if you can drill next to lava or not so the whole stragegy is to evade lava as best as you can because you don't know how it behaves. Not a good design.

The audio does the job though it becomes repetitive.

Not very fond of this. Lava will start spreading more after about 60m, impossible to get to at least 100m. Machine's power runs out way too fast. ( Make it slower. )

Slow game, all in all. Have fun making it to 200m.

the game is very repetitive like most games on this website but it does give you objectives via the achievements however when my drill ran out of drill power i could still drill also it gets stupid hard just after around 50M and there is an achievement of 200M
