Nice little game! I included it in my GameDevNetwork: The Big Festive Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


I think the pacing needs to be more fast in this game.  I liked how the tile changes as you dig near it. o/ o/ 


That's whatI spent the most time on! Thanks for the feedback about the pacing


A really Interesting concept; plus,  it had nice graphics and animation, but sadly it lacked a bit of content. Put in some traps, enemies, powerups, whatever you feel like, and it could become a quite fun game :D


Stay tuned...


I was attracted by the icon for my beloved chemistry, and i like very much! Continue to develop it,  add powerups, highscores, player selector with different skills just some few ideas :D


An interesting take on the theme. I like it. I like the art style a lot. The player animation is really nice. The music has the right feel for a cutesy mining vibe, even if the loop is only about 3 seconds long. This game has a lot of potential - throw some enemies in there, maybe some powerups, and this could be a lot of fun.

Haha the music was a last minute addition! My plan now is to add extra time "powerups", maybe some falling boulders and better value things further down
