    Free- with in-app purchases

    "The puzzles, coupled with a unique interactive world, provide a new and compelling experience. However, I was disappointed to see the designers fall back on the same tired old formula of in-app purchases. Without making a purchase the game quickly becomes no fun. I would rather pay an up-front cost for a game so I know what I'm getting into."

    #2Astrox: Hostile Space Excavation

    "This solution was very helpful! I have been playing Astrox: Hostile Space Excavation for a month now, and I have to say that I love this game. I enjoy cruising around in my space ship and mining for different ores by blowing up asteroids. I also like the bartering system in the game that allows me to trade what I mine. Astrox has got to be one of the best and most entertaining mining games that I have ever played!"

    "Minecraft, at this point, is a legitimate phenomenon. Hugely popular game. I'm not sure I'd really say it's a game about mining though. It's more of a game about building. Either way, I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed."

    "A simple yet fun mining game. The two best parts of the game are that it is different every time you place so you don't get bored. And I absolutely love that it can be played alone or cooperatively with friends for when you feel like being social."

    "Reminiscent of Motherlode, this is an engaging and addicting platformer with real style. Playing as Rusty, the animated robot prospector, I found myself drawn back again and again. Killing enemies, collecting resources and blasting new paths for myself each time. If I had one complaint, it would be that the game is a little too short."
