    • Operations
      • Overview
        • Operations consist of 3 basic components:
          • The mole tunnels mine out the minerals.
          • The elevators bring the mined minerals up to the surface.
          • The mole hill handles the transport of the minerals for sale.
        • At the beginning, these operations must be coordinated manually. Upgrade them to automate their work cycles and improve their output.
        • Use the earnings to buy more
      • Micromanagement
        • At the start of the game, you must micromanage the entire operation.
        • Micromanagement consists of left clicking or tapping on a tunnel to order the mole to perform one work cycle.
        • Once the mole has finished their work cycle, they must be selected again to continue.
        • This can get tedious over time, so try to hire a manager as soon as you can afford one.
      • Managers
        • Once you hire a manager for an operation, the worker moles will continue their work cycles automatically.
        • Managers can be given praise, which will make their operation work faster for 30 seconds.
          • To give praise to a manager, select the lightning button above them.
          • A timer will appear above the manager.
          • The praise timer has a cooldown period of 5 minutes.
        • Improve a manager’s efficiency by upgrading them. Upgraded managers make workers’ output more profitable.
    • Tunnel construction and management
      • Tunnels are built in underground chambers.
        • You start with no tunnel built. The first tunnel you build will use up your starting fund of $10.
        • The deeper you go, the more expensive the tunnels become.
        • Despite the themes shown in-game, functionally all the tunnels are mines.
        • There are 9 total tunnels you can unlock: mole farm, grocery, casino and bar, sleeping cabin, gym, admin room, canteen, science lab, and grand hall.
      • Sometimes, you will encounter impenetrable ground.
        • To build here, you need to pay a large sum of cash to break the ground.
        • Breaking the ground is a separate cost from building a new tunnel.
      • Tunnels begin staffed by one mole miner.
        • You must pay a separate fee to hire a manager. The managers cost more as you move deeper down.
        • You gain another worker every time you level up 25 times, 50 times, 100 times, and 200 times, and 500 times.
    • Elevator and mole hill management
      • You begin with both the elevator and mole hill already constructed.
        • The elevator expands with the number of new tunnels built. Its capacity will not grow, however, unless it is upgraded.
        • Although the mole hill does not grow, its capacity increases each time you upgrade it.
      • The movement of goods follows this pattern:
        • The elevator mole will pick up the minerals collected from the tunnels from the top down. The mole will skip the levels with nothing on stock.
        • Once the elevator reaches the bottom, it returns to the surface with its cargo.
        • The minerals appear on the surface on a crate. That’s the mole hill mole’s cue to pick it up.
          • The elevator mole can add more minerals to the crate if they make a second or third trip.
        • The mole will now bring it to the hill to be sold. They will pick up as much as they can carry.
      • If you notice that the moles aren’t clearing all the minerals from the tunnels, it’s time to upgrade them.
        • You can clear up small backlogs by praising their managers.
        • Because of its time limit, this can only be a temporary fix.
        • Use the money you’ve earned from the burst of productivity to upgrade the elevator and mole hill.
        • Like the individual floors, you can also hire managers for the elevator and the molehill.
          • It costs $400 to hire the elevator manager and another $400 to hire the mole hill manager.
    • Cash flow
      • Active cash flow
        • Active cash flow represents the amount of money you earn while playing the game.
        • This is your only source of cash when not all of the operations have managers yet.
      • Idle cash flow
        • Idle cash flow becomes available when you have managers on the elevator, mole hill, and at least one tunnel.
        • You earn idle cash for every second you aren’t playing the game.
          • Coming back to a game after taking a break can be a very pleasant surprise.
        • The rate of your idle cash flow depends on the size and effectiveness of your operations.
          • As you add tunnels and buy upgrades, you improve your idle cash flow.
          • Even at its base amounts, idle cash flow can be quite profitable.
        • You will lose your idle cash flow if you reset your progress.
    • Upgrades
      • Upgrades make significant improvements to each of your operations.
        • Buying an upgrade increase the capacity and speed of each operation.
        • For tunnels, reaching levels in the multiples of 25 increases the number of working miners.
        • For managers, upgrades also removes 30 seconds from the cooldown time of their praise boosts.
      • Select any operations box to open the upgrade window.
        • The upgrade window explains the improvements applied in the next upgrade.
        • At the bottom of the upgrade window are the four options for upgrades:
          • 1 upgrade level
          • 10 upgrade levels
          • 50 upgrade levels
          • Max: The maximum number of upgrade levels you can afford.
        • The button to buy upgrades only becomes active if you can afford it.
      • Each upgrade has a ramping cost. Later upgrades cost more.
        • A table below highlights upgrade costs.
      • The game will alert you when you can afford an upgrade by placing a green arrow above the things you can upgrade.
    • Manager upgrades
      • Each floor manager may be upgraded 10 times, with each upgrade tripling floor production for that floor.
      • The elevator and the molehill managers can also be upgraded 10 times each, with each upgrade doubling the businesswide production.
      • Upgrades are available after a floor reaches levels 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, and 400.
        • You can upgrade the floors into the thousands of levels, but the managers can not upgrade anymore than 10 times each.
        • If you advance the floor level past the upgrade point you can do a series of catch up upgrades to the managers.
    • Investors
      • When you’ve earned trillions in cash, investors will appear.
      • Onboarding an investor will clear your previous progress in exchange for greater profits on your new mine.
      • The more investors you have, the higher your profits will be on the subsequent play.
      • This game starts with you earning small sums & more per floor as you move deeper, but you can earn a lot right off the start of a game if you had many investors.
        • Eventually after going through trillions the game uses letters like A, B, C, and then AA, AB, etc.
        • The maximum stored income you can have in this game is 179.77 DT. This is also the maximum idle income earning rate per second.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like idle sim games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
