I am playing this right now, my first run at it, completely stuck at level 17. What the hell am I supposed to do on that level?!?!?!

Edit: Figured it out. That level is really nasty.

Ok, my first try at the game (Or well, second one, my first try ended at level 4 when I got stuck and pressed ESC to see if the level would restart, but it sent me back straight to Workbench):

203,950

Level 21

https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resi...nt=photo%2cjpg

This is basically Loderunner, with all nice touches and pitfalls of Loderunner. A game of this lasts for too long, it's not like POD where you can go for a quick go and have fun. But I certainly will be able to beat this

One problem this has is that I am used to play Loderunners with 2 butons (one button digs to left, another button digs to right). With just 1 button, too many mistakes are made by digging at the wrong side, which is really annoying.

But outsmarting the dumb AI is always lots of fun on any Loderunner clone

I got stuck here at my last life.. I pressed F10 and the game ended.. I am not sure if F10 just ends the game or kill me. I also have pictures of the highscore board if necessary

This is where the readme file comes in handy

F10 will, according to the instructions, restart the game. A better option is to press Del, as that will kill the player if they get stuck. And yes, Esc just quits out completely with no warning (which seemed a bit rude to me).

My first try ended at level 2 and didn't take a lot of time, either.

Maybe my first try lasted for too long because I kept looking at level 17 for a long time trying to figure out how to beat it.

All enemies were stuck at positions where they couldn't get me, I just dropped the joystick and scratched my head like "How the hell can I get past this?"

And some of the levels do take a while to beat even if you know the solution.

I'm obviously a bit thick as I can't work out how to do level six yet...

I'm completely stuck on level 17. Unless someone can tell me how to complete it that's it for me.

Look at us feeble scrappers.. fighting for scarce left-overs after robo-sparkle snatches all the league points in one foul swoop

Anakirob:
lvl 17.. is that the one with 3 pits and seemingly no way to dig down? The trick is to dig the top 2 blocks while still hanging from the rope.
Wait til you reach lvl 21.. it's a ******* nightmare.

I've beaten Level 21 and, yeah, it's a nightmare.

From level 17 onwards the game just gets ridiculous hard and you make really few points on each level.

Minerunner supports this: Press the 2nd button to start the game and you're in two-button mode!

Another thing... if you need help with level 17, you can download the attached level017.log
- unzip it
- copy it into the "levels" drawer
- Enter c o w in the title picture of Minerunner. Now you see the the secret menu
- enter level017 and press return

good luck!

It's great when the game's programmer joins the thread... an uncommon event

Why not take the plunge and submit a score for the competition yourself?

Hui, cool music! I lost a few guys because the hero sometimes ran in an unintended direction!
