May 30, 2012I won't rate this game an 8, 9 or 10, because that would be an insult to the brilliant games out there which do deserve it. Rather I will fairly rate it a 4, that is to say it's a mediocre game, it's entertaining and worthwhile but not mind blowing. If you like the idea micromanaging many small diggers, collecting ore, digging tunnels - this game will entertain you. For a few hours. Because there is very few content, there are only two unit types, and very few things to do. I have a feeling this game could have been brilliant if it had three times more content, but as it is, it's very simple, and you'll have done everything there is to do after a few (albeit fun) games.… Full Review »
May 8, 2011Do you like dwarfs? well do you?
Because you are going to have to deal with a whole lot of them, at first the game seem a bit slow and placid but as time goes on your going to be dealing with loads of them.
One of the main aspects of the games is that you do not control the dwarfs, they dig around at there own whim, you can control them with way points, but they cost. In a way that makes it more frantic as you have to decide, control them, or let them go on there own merry way. If you control them, it costs money (and finely there will be so many dwarfs it will be near impossible to do) but if you let them wonder they get into all sorts of trouble, for example mining into caves full of lava.
Talking about lava the main obstacles in the game are lava, water and hoards of bad guys that want nothing but your blood, to deal with the latter you will need dynamite and walls, oh and to "solidify" the walls of the cave (stops dwarfs mining Through them) but to deal with with the bad guys? You will need fighters to protect the weak miners and stop the evil bosses, however there as organised as the miners (stumbling round like idiots).
All in all the game has simple controls, a simple yet nice looking graphics and will probably get you addicted. For Â£7.99 it is well worth it, it will probably keep you busy for a long while.… Full Review »
