The Mine


Tunnel through the strata deep beneath the Earth's crust in search of buried treasure. Clear the mine of fire breathing dragons and man-eating tomatoes with your neutraliser, avoiding toppling rocks, poisonous toadstools and ruthless phantoms.

The object of the game is to tunnel through the strata deep beneath the Earth's crust in search of buried treasure. But the mine is protected by fire breathing dragons and giant man-eating tomatoes. To kill one of these, you must get close to your victim and activate your neutraliser.

The creature will then start to shrink and then disappear completely.

Running under a boulder will cause it to fall to the floor. This can be useful for killing monsters - and also yourself, if you don't move out of the way fast enough. Also beware the poisonous toadstools.

The creatures themselves cannot dig. They change tunnels by turning into ghosts and then rematerialising in a different tunnel. You must kill all of the monsters to advance to the next phase. If this is not done by the time the flowers have all wilted away, you will lose a life.

Bonus points are awarded for the speed with which you complete each phase.
