“It's all wonderfully satisfying. Blocks of earth come apart in little bursts of pixels as you pepper them with sprays of bullets, something always seems to be exploding, and an ever depleting fuel meter gives the game a brilliantly frantic pace.”
PC Gamer

“The sheer amount of quantified destruction on display is just, yep, that's the good stuff right there.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Incredibly hard to put down from the moment I tried it ... It's a dead-simple formula that got its hooks into my brain in approximately 11 seconds.”

About This Game

Blast your way through rocks and dirt with your machinegun drill. Carve through the ground to uncover precious ores and defeat menacing foes.

Uncover ancient relics and artefacts hidden in the deep. Amass a fortune in rare gems & ores.

Invest in powerful upgrades and unlock new abilities, turning your humble gyrocopter into a fearsome force to be reckoned with.

Explore a diverse range of biomes, from treacherous volcanic caverns to lush overgrown underground forests, each with its own unique challenges and rewards.

  • Intense mining action with fast-paced blasting
  • Constant progress - even failed runs aren't punishing
  • Diverse biomes to explore
  • Purchase upgrades to overpower your gyrocopter
  • Navigate the overworld to unlock new mine shafts
  • Collect and loot rare gems, ores, and artefacts to upgrade your gear and abilities
  • Endless replayability with procedurally generated levels

Drawing inspiration from mining games like Motherload and Galactic Mining Corp, Bore Blasters takes the genre to the next level with high octane action and fast paced gameplay. Fans of digging and collecting will find plenty to love, while the addition of deadly enemies and mysterious artefacts will keep even the most seasoned miners on their toes.
