Mining can also be helpful during the initial phase of the game, this is one of the best ways of grinding money.

How to Unlock Mining

To unlock, you need to reach the Mine area at the Swoosh’s Falls.

Talk to Doraemon, Smitty, and Blake, they will teach you how to mine and some basic instructions.

To get the pickaxe, you need to find and talk to Blake. You can find Blake by opening your map and look for his icon. In our case, we find him at the Zazan Cape. (Make sure to free up your inventory before talking to Blake)

Once you have the pickaxe, you can go back to the mining site and start.

Mining Break Through Floor

When you break through some spots in the mining area, a rope to the lower floor will pop out. The lower you’ll get the more precious materials you can mine, but it will be more difficult and requires you to upgrade your existing pickaxe.


This technique is common to all offline games, especially games in ’90s where you save and load the progress to get better chances.

To get deeper to the floor from floor 5 to 7 or more. Before start digging on each floor, what you need to do is to Save your progress, your objective is to find the rope for the next floor. Once you’ve found it, remember it and Load the saved progress and re-dig the spot.

This way, you’ll save enough of Stamina where you can go deeper into the Breakthrough mine floor.

You can also use our plotter tool, to plot tiles with the best rare materials and save much more stamina.

    Hi.. can you please fix the plotter tool? I was using it just fine before but now it only shows a picture with a restart button that does not work.

    Also just an addition, you forgot to list Diamond as minerals. It sells for 500 G.

    Could I please get the original version of the plotter? It was a lot easier to use on my phone

    Guys, I’m having a problem with the save and load the saved game
    The rope on the first 2 floors are always in the same spot, but when I reach the third floor, the rope and the others minerals aren’t in the same spot
    Someone has any idea what could possibly be wrong with it? I’m in Summer and I even don’t have the Anywhere door because this way I can’t mine gold ore
