MinerMiningMines is a game about Rico, a young Miner, who never thought, he would become one.

If you know the old classic game MinerVGA then you know what to do, but this is not just a pure remake. Your goal is to dig deeper and deeper to collect minerals, gain experience, earn money, but also defeat mean golems and face other dangers.

This is just a tech demo, you can walk around (by touching the screen left/right/top/bottom), dig, use the elevator, watch the neat animations.

Also notice: The current update will ignore the current save game file. A new file will be created.


  • walk around
  • dig
  • collect minerals
  • use elevator
  • kill time
  • gain experience
  • level up
  • day/night change
  • higher amount of hard ground on lower levels
  • delete the savegame manually through a file explorer


  • A lot!
  • enemies
  • dangers
  • in game menu
  • Jolla tablet for testing x86 compatibility and scaling
  • make the controls (temporarily) visible to the user

Please notice that this is a spare time project, made by two guys who like retro games and who have normal full time jobs. It's quite active at the moment, but updates may not come regularly (though we'll do our best).

Feedback is of course always welcome, so are your ideas.

One half: Rico - idea, graphical design, sounds, naming the main character :-P
The other half: Martin (yoktobit) - programming, deployment, Sailfish friend
