In Mini Miner, your aim is to amass a fortune by carefully mining the gold ore blocks and various precious stones. For each level, you have to reach a specific target in cash specified at the beginning of the level, and you must achieve this within the allotted time. If you don't manage to do it - it's game over for the poor miner.
Use the left and right cursor keys to move the wagon and the space bar to launch the hook. The hook will try to pick the first thing it reaches and will pull it back. The bigger the ore, the slower will be the pullback. Have in mind that some stones are too big for pulling.
Not all stones and gold ores have the same monetary value, so pick your targets carefully in order to proceed.
