      • Each mineshaft you create starts with 1 worker on it.

        • A second worker is added at level 25.
        • A third worker is added at level 50.
        • A fourth worker is added at level 100.
        • A fifth worker is added at level 200.
      • Worker upgrades cost more as you move further down the elevator & as you advance through ranks within a mineshaft.
      • The mineshafts can be leveled up into the thousands of levels, however you max out at 6 miners inside each stage.
    • Management
      • Workers must be manually sent into action to mine for resources until you hire a manager which automatically overseas them.
        • Each manager worked on an individual mineshaft.
      • Managers can tell them to work harder for a short period of time. You have to manually activate this feature, which lasts 30 seconds & then has a 5-minute cooldown.
      • When your workers are at (or above) levels 25, 50, and 100 you can upgrade the manager’s level.

        • Level 2 upgrade increases production 12x.
        • Level 3 upgrade increases production 36x.
        • Level 4 upgrade increases production 108x.
      • Managers can be leveled up to level 10 on each mineshaft.
        • If you have the elevator, warehouse, and mineshaft manager all maxed out the profit multiplier within a mineshaft is 429,981,696x & the speed is increased 0.5%.
        • As the numbers get larger past the trillions the game uses AA, AB, AC … AZ, BA, etc. to represent the next digit sets.
    • Depth
      • You start out with a single mineshaft you unlock with the $10 you are given at the start of the game.
      • As you earn money you can unlock additional mineshafts.
        • The first 3 mineshafts mine coal.
        • The middle 3 mineshafts extract gold.
        • The final 3 mineshafts recover diamonds.
      • Mineshafts both cost & earn more as you move deeper down into the Earth’s crust.
        • The bottom mineshaft costs $384 trillion to unlock.
        • Upgrading the worker from level 1 to level 2 in the nineth mineshaft costs $445.44 trillion.
      • Hard rock
        • Rows 4 and 7 have a hard rock which you must break up before you can develope additional mineshafts in them.
    • Mine elevator & warehouse
      • You have to upgrade the elevator and warehouse to keep up with the production level below or else your production can get bogged down and stuck.
      • Like the mineshafts, you have to hire managers for each to automate production. The warehouse manager and elevator manager each cost $400 to hire.
      • It costs $250 billion to upgrade the elevator manage the first time, which doubles all mine profits. The next upgrade is $50 AA.
      • It costs $1 trillion to do the first upgrade on the warehouse manager, which doubles all profits. The next upgrade is $100 AA.
      • The elevator and warehouse managers max out at level 10, but you can get the elevator and warehouse up to levels running into the thousands.

      • You can sell the business to an investor group, which has you start the game over again with a higher earning level from each move.
      • The longer you play the more investors are gained.
      • After playing a long time initially you can have many investors at once, which allows you to replay through all 9 levels of depth within minutes of starting a new game.
    • Strategy
      • Hire managers as early as you can in the game to automate production.
      • Be sure to keep your elevator and production warehouse upgraded so they can handle your throughput.
      • Unlock new floors as they become available, but focus most of your income into upgrading mineshafts at least to level 25 so that you have multiple workers producing & can also upgrade the manager level on each mine to multiply your production.
      • It is typically best to spend most of your income upgrading the lowest shafts down the mine which you can get to at least level 25 & then use idle income after taking a break to upgrade the bottommost mineshaft.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like idle clicker games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
