I know, we are iTunes official now hahaha

I really meant that, it is a fun puzzler. A different digger than Puzzle to Center of Earth, my favorite digger.... This is a close 2nd! Especially later levels lots of challenge and options...

I like mining games, but couldn't get into PCE. The levels were too big and open, without much to actually do other than find the exit. This looks super, though.

I enjoy these type of games, but so often they're freemium. Happy to pay a premium price with no IAP. Thank you developers!

Oops, I was coming over to post this and discovered that it's already up. Thanks PeteOzzy :P And thanks to the folks I quoted, both for testing and for saying nice things.

Sorry to hear you're not liking the controls, anabolicMike. Any specific thing that's getting under your skin? Some people prefer to draw a path - personally I play by just tapping individual tiles, or tapping my destination.

I'm still confused on exactly how the controls work.
