Pull up your sleeves and unveil the miner in you, tapping your screen in a exciting quest to find the most rare and expensive elements in the universe.
It’s easy to play, just tap your phone to mine the rocks in the search of the most exciting elements in the universe. Accumulate resources and use them wisely in other to acquire more efficient tools.
Will you become the greatest virtual miner in this galaxy? Prove yourself and start playing Pickaxe.

Pickaxe is a mining game where you have to keep mining until your fingers numb out. All you have to do is just keep tapping your fingers and go deeper and deeper into the rocks. But it’s not just to test your fingers but the actual purpose of this mining is even bigger than what Gold diggers die for. You’ll find some of the rarest and most exciting elements of this whole universe. So expect something that you can’t imagine or define exactly.

It’s obvious that the more power you put in, the more will be the damage. But a lot depends upon your tool as well. If your pickaxe isn’t strong enough or has a blunt edge, how can you expect it to break the hardest materials in a single shot! As you dig deep into the stones, you’ll find coins and diamonds. You can use these coins to upgrade your tools. You can forge new tools using the resources such as Blacksmith and the more coins you have, the better is the Blacksmith to carve out more powerful tools. You can use these coins to upgrade your Perfect Forge Probability as well. There are many more upgrades available in the shop and they determine the distance you’ll travel below the surface of Earth.

Pixel Art has been used to design the graphics for this game. Though it doesn’t match the sharpness and High Definition finishing of the present age games, it’s a unique experience when you play such an adventurous game on an old platform. So in this case, the wine is new but the glasses are old and it tastes better this way.

Great app

This is a good app if you have some down time and don't know what to do. It's concept is similar to other games but works in a different more entertaining but basic way at the same time. Not to say the app isn't great because it's still a load of fun to play on the bus or such. I am very satisfied after using this application, it is easier to use and brings a different experience compared to similar applications that I've usued. l would recommend this app to family and friends for all to use


Feeling like a miner now!

I love the tv show called “Gold Rush” and this game makes me feel on it, being like a real miner! I like the idea that we don’t get always the best results since it makes me wish and work out to get a higher level to achieve it. The old school design is awesome, the game runs really smoothly and is perfect to play during waiting times. I hope the developer build more versions of it.


Lessons in futility and money grabbing.

First off, the game was fun for all of a hour. After that, the game is a pure lesson in futility. You need cash to level things, diamonds to level things and tons of clicking to level things. There is a 'auto click' of such a minor amount that there might as well NOT be one.

But i digress, the lesson in futility is this. You need money to make money, money to upgrade your Pickaxe, and then diamonds to level your Pickaxe so you can make more money,... so you can constantly repeat this cycle.

THEN, there's the issue of every three or less minutes, you have an add pop up while you're clicking. Which opens the App Store, which sometimes turns off the game.

If the developer of the game put as much thought into their game as they did their ad spamming, it might be good.

But as it is, it's a waste of time as there is no true progression.
