This game doesn’t take long to draw you in. Although no real point or plot takes place within the game. The soothing music fades into that background nicely and becomes unnoticed after a time. It also has simple graphics reminding me a little of dig dug, but in no way does this detract from the game. In Miner Dig Deep by Substance Games you dig yourself a mine collecting valuable gems and ores to sell for better equipment to dig your mine deeper and deeper. I have yet to find a maximum depth but whether there is one or not you will spend hours engrossed in digging the perfect mine.
There are challenges within your mine though. If you dig too much in an area you can cause random cave-ins. Digging under a boulder could bring it crashing down on your head, and falling from great heights will take you out as well. Not to mention digging yourself into a hole you can’t escape. None of these things kill you, but you do lose any ore or gems you had on hand. This can set you back greatly when it comes to getting that new pick axe.
As you get deeper new challenges appear like pitfalls you can’t see till you are right on them. All the while you will widdle hours away without even noticing it. This game has no challenges or points other than those you make for yourself, it is your mine and you can do what you want with it. Miner Dig Deep is family friendly and has a nice save feature, supporting 3 different saved games. This game is easy to get into and hard to put down.
I easily give this game a 5 out of 5.
