From the developer of No Brakes, looks pretty charming as well!

This looks pretty cool. Definitly if it's by the developers of No Brakes.

This is a fun little chaser. Can you go further and escape the zombies? It starts out slow but after about 3 rounds it ramps up and you are digging for your life. I haven't hit a paywall yet, but I can't find a purchase that removes ads, just the usual stuff. Is it there somewhere, Dev?

Looks like a cool new twist to the timberman formula. Liking it on the videos so far.

Thanks for playing and for the feedback guys! A "remove ads" option is a great idea. Do let us know if there is anything else you're keen to add or change.

I see a little of timberman in this game. Miner Man is similar also and they are both about mining. Lol

What i mean is that in Timberman, you can consider having 2 columns where you can move (left and right) while in here you have multiple columns. And instead of the tree branches moving downwards, in this game the miner goes downwards (alternatively, the world moves upwards).

Agree with a remove ads option as well as an option to turn off the music but leave the sound effects on

Looks like a faster version of Doug dug actually. The sped up mechanics do look fun, but I'm not sure how happy I'd be if I were Electric Toy Co.
