Mr. Miner was made with Phaser and has been one of our bigger projects. Feedback welcome. Always interested what other people and developers think.

Nice concept, liked the mechanics and graphics of the game.

A few suggestions:

- It would be nice to have a key when you start the game, saying what substances are worth how much money

- The upgrading seemed a bit slow and repetitive, maybe add more options as to what you can upgrade and possibly items that give you a sort of boost in the game. (500m headstarts, bigger claw, etc)

 

Also, there was a bug where the audio cut out when I started mining for the second time. Not sure if this is a bug in the game or just chrome, my computer, etc.

We've added a small tutorial which bunched a few items into categories. Maybe it would've been better to add some sort of key or diagram legend on a separate page.

I loved the concept, but the grind was too high. It remind me of a couple JRPGs for some reason...

xD

I always find it a challenge to properly balance a game is such a way that the content is not played through too fast but also not making it an endless grind. It is not a game you can finish in 10 minutes, that's for sure. :P

Looked great but I had a fairly serious bug where clicks were just missed in the main game screen, sometimes for several seconds before the mining 'arm' would fire.

Wow, we've never encountered a problem like that. Which browser did you use to play the game? Need to try and replicate your setup and see if we get the same.

Did you play it on a mobile device?

I was on Chrome on desktop, latest version, on OSX. I'll try it again and make sure it wasn't user error!

update: I was about to claim it was user error as I just had a great time playing your game, great fun, (although sound died on hitting the 2nd level), buuut, I can replicate my original bug!

Are you using a click handler?

Because if I click, drag, release then it no worky, presumably as that isn't a click event. I'm guessing the same would happen with touch, move, touchend. Fix should be simple to use mousedown/touchdown events instead I would guess.

Thanks a bunch Matt! We were kinda surprised that we did not notice this sooner. We have adjusted it so that the hook will fire on click/tap release. Going to push this fix after adding another small adjustment. :D
