Top 5 Mining Games on Android

Best ways to dig deep on Android

Humans have mined for valuable resources for thousands of years, inventing increasingly sophisticated means of delving below the earth's core.

As well as mining being pretty darned handy for the advancement of civilisation, there's an undeniable sense of adventure to exploring the depths of our battered old earth.

It's perhaps no surprise, then, that we like to play games about mining, as this list of the Top 5 mining games on Android will hopefully show.

We hope you - ahem - dig it.

The name says it all, really. Before you can craft your extravagant dream house, epic castle, or theme park, you must mine for resources. That's the concept at the heart of Minecraft, and the game's enduring popularity suggests that it's a sound one.

Mines of Mars is a bit like Gem Miner, but with a moodier and more sophisticated sci-fi setting. It's all about guiding your spaceman to ever greater depths in the name of cold futuristic capitalism. Hurrah!

This delightfully oddball game is like a cross between Where's My Water? and Lemmings. So, yeah, you guide your crew of miners to a series of underground treasures. It's a strategy game with plenty of depth. Sorry.
