I always sit up when you make a game thread. Toy Physics and Stick Golf are excellent casual games and this looks to be one too. Since I loved California Gold Rush I'm going to pick this up.

Shucks, I'm not sure I've been a useful member of anything before. Thank you both to Rich and Squeaker.

This is one of those games that was a complete surprise and an utter delight in one, from the first few moments of playing. Then I discovered there also appear to be layers of depth as well.

There are some videos of the PC version on YouTube, but to be honest I don't think they do this game justice. It clearly has been lavished with polish and graphical enhancements for its iPhone release, which on top of the already solid gameplay makes for a real winner from what I've experienced so far.

Oh my God.... This looks like Miner Dig Deep (Indie Xbox Live game)... I'm going to do a bit more research before downloading, but if it plays the same, with similar goals, downloading ASAP.

Edit: posted too fast to realize what the game was really about :\ Oh well, still looking into it

Tried this game a while back and loved it. Is the iPhone game better or different?
