I wish the stats where more detailed, mostly strength/attack. I couldn't tell if attack was better or if strength actually multiplied anything.

And speed was completely random.

Fun. However, I'd REALLY like the ability to mark squares on treasure grids (so I can have a visual representation to denote squares that I've calculated do not have treasure).


It ate my time. It ate all the time.


A little confused... often I'm told (after defeating a certain number of enemies, I guess) that I've unlocked a new item, such as a helmet. However, when I go to equip myself with the new item, it's nowhere to be found. Anyone know what's going on with that?

Also, I apparently need gardening sheers to proceed to the next level, but I have no clue where they are. Am I missing something?


@twinkie: Sometimes you'll unlock an item in the store, but won't be a high enough level to see it yet, too.

It's probably to do with level up. As you level up, you automatically unlock stuff in the shop. Also, you get a "new item" tag on you telling you to use up your stat points. Note that the shop item might appear "black" if you don't have enough coins. It'll have the unlock symbol removed though.

About the game itself... I liked it better at the beginning as it just got tedious by the end. I was 2 hit killing everything and with the stop watch special, I could kill even bosses before they appeared. The task of choosing which spade to use also got nulled as the last two are unquestionably superior, which was a petty as that was an interesting question for me (do I get the one that digs grass faster or the one that digs rocks?). Wish the weapons and buddies were more unique like the bug killing game they made before. Still, I was compelled enough to finish finding everything so points for that.


A glitch/cheat:

after using the special item that increases your speed by 50 points - after the battle your speed stat is permanently increased by 20. After a few uses my speed was 270 and most enemies never got the chance to move


FYI, items are unlocked on reaching certain levels, not on defeating a certain count of enemies (or at least so I am 99% sure). You don't need to meet any prerequisites to buy an item once it's unlocked except for having enough gold. Items you can't afford will be shown in black silhouette.
Pretty cute game. By the time it was starting to drag I was able to finish it up and dust my hands of it. Kind of a nice twist on the Minesweeper clone genre, though it doesn't provide a whole ton of incentive, besides annoyance, for being meticulous in your searching.


Why is the rating so low?

I liked the level up system on the south side of the river, but it swiftly became uneven and too easy on the other side. South side "boss" was nearly unbeatable, and the north side had me equipped with way too many goodies for it to matter.

I love, love, love the attention to detail with each treasure, and the humor was spot-on. Maybe one of the treasures can unlock the shopkeeper's secret stash of... something? Just a few tweaks here and there, and this would be a stand-out time-waster. er, game.


There are a few bugs at the end.

After defeating the wizard and digging up all of the "special" treasure, the games goes right into the end credits, even if you have other treasure left to find. When I went back into the final field, the robot was still with me, even though it had just left.

On the map with all the levels, the bubble the comes up when you hover over the level gets stuck in the show position, so I had most of the map covered in bubbles.

Oh my goodness that whale in the preview picture is ADORABLE :3

Angelade March 2, 2011 1:20 AM

Oh man, I was having a LOT of trouble defeating the Minotaur and the Snake King... and then I found

The Excalibur sword in area 12

and I was doing 200 damage average, with the crit. being 600 damage :D

Angelade March 2, 2011 1:36 AM

When fighting the final boss, I got a critical hit twice... the whole battle lasted about 5 turns... :D


I can't seem to escape death! If I hit the letter flashing overhead, nothing happens. If I hit Shift, I die. The review suggests that this is an easy mini game, but either I found a bug or am too dumb to live! Any suggestions?


Alright I've made a little progress but I still don't get the "minesweeper" part of the game. If a square says 4 does that mean the four surrounding squares are supposed to have prizes? Or is it counting diagonals? I'm about to hang it up unless I figure that out.

Tbag Jones March 3, 2011 6:13 AM

Where do I get the map to advance to level 12!?!? I have one corner of it, I have dug up every single square in every single level up to 11, and cannot find the friggin map. What do I do?

Gyrofly March 7, 2011 1:19 PM

I have beaten the entire game. Dug up every square of every level, and have every weapon, every treasure, every piece of armor, headgear, and buddy, but am still without one special item. It appears to be the same shape as the ornament filled with healing potion, but maybe with a skull and crossbones on it. It's the 4th one on the top row. Has anyone else found this special item? How do I get it?

Derrin96 March 7, 2011 3:16 PM


I have the same problem it looks like the deadly nightwish in the treasure chest but it doesn't come up on the specials.

Anonymous March 18, 2011 12:10 AM

@gyrofly and derrin96: i have found the item, its the viking's helmet - make sure to explore every area, and find all items. there is nothing to it, just find every item in every area.

anonymousisaboringname March 18, 2011 10:10 PM

I can't kill anything. I just started, and i die every freaking time.


The special you are looking for is a green poison potion. It does have a skull and cross bones on it but it is not very effective when fighting.

freakonoid March 20, 2011 1:40 AM

This game kinda sux other than the cute graphics. Other than that, its really addictive :O i cant stop playing it -.-

Lavencia March 21, 2011 5:12 PM

For some reason, I finished the game, dug up everything, and found all of the treasures, but I am missing the second to last weapon. Does anyone know how to get it?


i have finished the game 2x with a problem i never have every buddy cause when i kill the minotaur or snake king and get killed by something else the snake king is gone and i dont have the buddy is there any way i can still get it???


I found three pieces of the map but im missing the bottom right! where is it?


I like the take on minesweeper. Neat idea. The ninja keeps getting me with his evil, evil little birdy on area 5, though. ;,,(


Okay, I finished it!! Very nice game. I liked it alot. Near the end it gets kind of repetitive though- and defeating the 'wizard' was REALLY easy.
I felt kinda bad about going back and taking advantage of a drunk man over and over again- he never caught on. And the 'buddies'- after I found the next buddy, I never took the previous buddy on a mission ever again. Poor little birdy! I worked so hard to earn him from the ninja and when I earned the penguin I must have decided that I was too cool for him. Can't I just give him to Andy? He looked like he needed some friends. :)
