Gem Miner: Dig Deeper follows the simple formula of most mining games with a shop for selling and buying, a tent for recouping stamina, and one large expanse of ground to explore.
The game comes with a few different options to play through and a very simple tutorial to help get you started. The controls left something to be desired as you needed to tap once every time to dig and this occasionally caused me to dig in areas I did not want. After playing the game for a while though, it was clear this would be an addicting experience.
Occasionally you will run into artifacts that will sell for good money or help your mining experience. There is the constant balance you need to keep between digging in new areas and making sure to get back up before you run out of ladders or stamina.
Overall it was an excellent game and definitely worth checking out.
