Android App Tablet Review: Gem Miner

by Andrew Koziara

Gem Miner is a simple game based on exploration and strategy.

Your goal in the game is to mine for all kinds of valuable ores and gems. As your mine expands, however, its integrity gets compromised, and you must constantly place support beams and ladders wherever necessary to stabilize things and keep yourself from being trapped. These items come in limited quantity, and must be bought from a store.

You only have so much stamina before having to return to sell off your goods and rest. This is not a mindless game, and it must be played with caution. The simple graphics blown up on a large tablet screen actually make the graphics look a bit choppy and low resolution, but the art still gets the job done.

Let this gem of a game mine its way into your Android Tablet, today.
