Excavatorrr was originally made for Ludum Dare 15 48-hour competition, but was finished properly afterwards. The game resembles a little bit Spelunky, that roguelike-platformer everyone loves, though not much. Also be sure to read the readme of the in-game help texts carefully, the game may seem a tad confusing at first. Also be ready to improve your skills a bit, the game needs more than one take to be fully enjoyed, I fear.

One of the most successfully retro games I have ever played, with fantastic and minimalistic graphics and gameplay. The game world is comprised of a narrow vertical slice made up of normal mine-able dirt and impenetrable rocks and filled with monsters of many varieties, gold, and precious stones. Your job into mine into these depths and bring back as many valuables as you can find.
