Dig your way through an unstable mine, collecting load of good stuff on the way

Gem Miner: Dig Deeper Review

by on May 7, 2010

Android has never been known as the best platform to play games on but there are a few titles which prove that Google’s OS is starting to match the iPhone for gaming prowess.

Gem Miner is one of those games, proving that a simple idea, some cute graphics and a bucket-load of game play can go a very long way.

Unsurprisingly, you play a miner who is looking for gems in a rather unstable mine. The object of the game is to gather as much precious metal as possible and get yourself to the top before the mine collapses on you.

There are three difficulty options: Easy, Medium and Hard and there’s also a handy tutorial to guide you through the quirks of the game.

Controlling your miner is done by either touch or your trackpad and while it all looks simple at first, things start to get that little bit complicated when you have to consider things like your stamina, how many supplies you have and just how you are going to get out of the collapsing mine.

Gem Miner is addictive but after a few goes it does lose some of its shine. Play it sporadically though and you will be well rewarded.
