Mine the depths of a volatile volcano and escape with its riches before it erupts!


Miner Disturbance Features
  • Lots of mining equipment, like hard hats, dynamite and, er, a rock blaster.
  • Valuable minerals: copper, silver, gold, effluvium and diamonds.
  • A big volcano called Mount Magros.
  • Dynamic water, explosive gas and LAVA!
  • One determined miner called Moin.
  • Play for FREE!


Can you guide Moin through Mount Magros? You’ll have to mine the precious minerals and put the murmurings of mythic miner-munching monsters out of your mind! Will you be able to escape the molten magma to make him a truly eminent miner?

Choose your equipment carefully. Will you grab the aqualung and forfeit the scanner? Can you afford to leave the gas mask behind? And what about the map? With so many decisions, random map generation and a variety of dangers along the way, Miner Disturbance is a game you will come back to again and again.


1. When will the volcano erupt?

In its own time, thank you very much! That said, mining it and blowing stuff up might hurry it along, so be careful. Keep an eye on your seismograph at all times!

2. Is it better to mine at the top or bottom of the volcano?

Legend (and some science) tells us that the more valuable minerals only occur in numbers near the base of the volcano.

3. What dangers lurk in the dark of Mount Magros?

No one has come back alive, except gibbering cowards. You should keep an eye out for trouble, though - who knows what you may find in the deep, dark places of the world...
