just finished the final medal, great game pretty simple but relaxing

This is an odd game. There's no challenge or real point to the gameplay, the graphics are extremely simplistic, but it's pretty, and oddly relaxing. I can't pinpoint where the charm here comes from, at all, but it's there. It's no masterpiece, what with the lack of substance, but I enjoyed it.

too much running around, trying to get the minerals

Gave up on the purple ones. Needs constant moving on pressing and holding the button

Criobite responds:

I think I agree. Probably going to change that in a post-jam update, only requiring tapping multiple times for breaking the gems.

Thanks for playing though, and for the positive review!

It gets repetetive fast.

Criobite responds:

Definitely, it's a pretty simple concept to begin with, and the constant tapping to dig through the dirt/stone doesn't help. Thanks for taking the time to check it out, though!
