Use your finger as a pickaxe, dig tunnels and guide the Micro Miners to the Gold, Silver and Coal deposits. Where’s my lemmings?
Micro Miners is an arcade-puzzler which revolves around the control of a vast horde of tiny miners. The screen is constantly scrolling downward, and it’s your job to collect all the available deposits of gold, silver, and coal that you see. Any missed resource represents a strike, and the level is considered failed if you miss three chances to collect. Further adding to the chaos is the fact that any miner left behind is lost indefinitely to the black nothingness beyond the screen.

KF on KND Editor’s note: negative reviewers have said this app has “spyware” or “adware”, and that it continues running the background even after you exit the app. After playing the app myself I can tell you I didn’t see any ads, that after I exited the app my Fire’s ‘processes’ list didn’t show any activity from this app or any other unusual/unidentifiable activity, and that the app runs fine with all wireless connectivity turned off (airplane mode). If you’re still very concerned, just put your Fire into airplane mode before launching the app: this will make any outgoing or incoming communications impossible. Personally, I think far too many fine apps have been unfairly smeared by reviewers who claim the apps are doing something bad when really, they’re not. This app is from a highly-regarded, award-winning development company. I trust them.
