How to play
It's simple, just tap either left or right on your screen!

You can charge while digging but your energy starts to
lose when you stop, so don't stop and keep digging

"Dig until there!" "Dig more!" "Gather Gems!"
As Work requests keep increasing, clear the stage without leaving any Work unfinished!

"Endless" is a trial mode.
Dig as far as you can until your battery runs out!
Test your limits! Compete with rivals around the world for top score!

Use Gems to power up!
Dig, gather, get stronger!
When you use Gems, you can power up your abilities!
Improve your digging speed, increase your battery level, increase the number of gems you can get!
You might be able to get an "Equipment" which has special effects....?
Use your power ups well, clear difficult Work, and aim for an even higher score in Endless!

Reach goals and get new characters!

I'm on level 45 or so, and really enjoying it! For anyone who might feel like gem collection for upgrades is going slow, play the endless mode. This scratches the Match Panic itch, and it's making me feel better about always being terrible at Mr. Driller and Dig Dug.

One thing, which may be temporary, is that I always get an error if I opt to watch a video to continue after dying. It would also be great for an ad-removal IAP.

Too bad there's no discussion about this game. It's pretty fun, especially the endless mode. I managed to get a pretty good score while recording on Everyplay:
