    This looks really cool. An epic Mining adventure!

    I've watched the trailer, and liking the features and style! The interactive town part looks like it will be a success.

    I like the games and graphics.

    There must be something you do with the resources. Can you expand on this?

    Also, when can we expect the game? Your site just says "coming soon".

    How much will the game cost?

    You can use the resources to "Craft" upgrades and tools. Examples are better pickaxes and weapons, jetpacks, portals, etc. There's also the Offering Pit... :D

    Thanks! We are fine-tuning and working on a publishing deal. We should release in 2-3 weeks for sure.

    The resources can be spent on player upgrades, better equipment, weapons, etc. Also you can spend time at the "Pit" :)

    Oh, and cost. Not certain. From free with ads to a max of $1.99. A full game takes 6-15 hours to complete. There are 3 game modes, each with new monsters, and every new game generates a brand new world so two games are never the same.

    Way to crank up the expectations. Expect me to expect something very hardcore and innovative ;)

    (Though, technically, I suppose a breath of fresh air for serious mobile gamers would be the iOS Farmville client or Smurf Village...)

    Jetpack Miner has expansive content, not unlike a console game :D One feature of the alien life is that they too mine. So if you come across a tunnel you may find a monster at the end of it. And if they were successful at mining resources, you may find more than one! It's unscripted.

    Update!

    We've improved the joypads, day/night cycle, and surface area.
