Super Digger - Mining and flying on the Windows Phone
is a fast-paced game where you use a flying digger bot to find treasures. Sell the treasures to get drill, power and engine upgrade to let you dig deeper. It's most similar in concept to the old flash game Motherload, except with Super Digger you get to build high-speed rail, you don't need to buy fuel (you're solar powered!) and the selling process is automated.Cost
The free trial is unlimited time, no ads, no nagging and lets you dig 1km underground. The full version costs $2.ScreenshotsAbout
I've been working on this side project in my spare time; it came out of playing digging games on phones and being disappointed with the controls and gameplay. I wanted something that gave the simple joys of flying around and digging up cool stuff so I worked a whole lot on making good controls. Let me know what you think.
About drilling upward, not sure about that. Much of the gameplay in Super Digger is figuring out how to get to what you want given the digging limitations. I'm afraid making it so you can always just hold in the direction you want to get to something might make digging around less interesting. Maybe I can add an upgrade that shows up relatively late...
FYI I've added the "next unlock" notification in the store.
