The Great Underground
The Great Forest Studio has dug up a cozy adventure RPG for you with plenty of resource mining and survival game elements! In The Great Underground you play a lone miner out to seek his fortune with just his knapsack, pick and a few provisions. Your digging skills improve with practice for each terrain type along with your ability to survey valuables within them at a distance. Retrieve them and sell them at the shop to earn money for better supplies as your skills improve! Different foods and teas each provide their own enhancements and you'll want to be sure to stop by the Inn to get the latest info and storyline plot points from the local villagers in this endearing game with soothing music and hand-painted graphics that's more about character development than utilitarian grinding. The Great Underground is free to play on your Android with hours of play and gorgeous artwork, and has a code available as a single in-app purchase which releases everything in the game, with more to discover and more storyline to encounter. This one is great for digging and exploring on your Android whether for short, relaxing adventures when you just have a few minutes to spare or for long, planned crawls to the depths where the greatest valuables can be found.
Choose where you'd like to dig by drawing a route outward from yourself. If you're playing on an Android smartphone rather than a tablet you may find that your route as registered wasn't quite what you'd had in mind, and you can undraw it in whole or in part by tracing back a bit — if you notice it before you've managed to dig through some terrain you'd rather you hadn't that is, which can be a bit hit-or-miss because you'll only spot it once you've finished drawing and cleared your hand out of the way. When you can afford it, sleeping gear of your own will save you quite a bit of time and money not only because you won't have to keep going up to the Inn to rest, but also because improved sleeping gear allows you to get the same rest and recovery in less time. And since hunger is time-based, this also enables you to reduce your food budget. With less expenses you can afford more efficient tools sooner, and you can even leave caches of provisions or gleaned valuables in cloth bags along a route for deeper and more profitable subterranean delving. The Great Underground starts you off right with a smooth in-game tutorial to show you everything you'll need to play, and features a delightfully soothing ambient environment you'll feel comfortable in planning underground excursions great or small, any time of day.
