Minigun Miner is a unique digging game for the Atari 2600 (VCS) home console.
Using a minigun, dig holes to collect buried treasures (coins, diamonds, rubies, etc.). But be careful to never touch the ground, or you'll explode! Thankfully, each time you fire your minigun, the recoil will send you flying in the air.
How to Play
- Hold Fire to shoot to fly up and dig holes. Move the joystick while holding the fire button to aim in any direction.
- Move joystick Left and Right while Fire button is released to move left and right.
- There are items to collect (earn points), and enemies to avoid (loose game) :
Looking for challenge?
My personal record is 42 points. Can you beat my high-score?
