I just spent like 20 minutes playing this game, so I really feel like I ought to blog about it. Besides, fun little online games are great and deserve attention. The game is called Miner Rescue, and I got the link from Boing Boing. In it, you rescue miners from a mine infested with aliens. Which is a great premise. I'd totally watch that movie.
Here are some tips for things I screwed up: You need to get the scroll from the commander above-ground before you can rescue any miners. At some point, I'm not sure if you can get it right away, she'll also give you a sword that kills the aliens much faster. And don't touch the red obelisk, it revives all the aliens.
