    I was a bit skeptical of this version when I first read some reviews. Having played both the first and second in this series, I was excited to see a new version. Reviews were shaky the first day and I was reluctant to try it based on them. But I wanted to see if it was really as bad as some said, so I downloaded and very glad I did. It is so much fun! My biggest concern were the monsters and what they brought in terms of mechanics. Essentially they are blocks that move and will chase you if they have a path. But you can be smart and blow them up without losing pick hits or armor. And there is great incentive to go after the monsters. They drop the coins to craft better gear. In this version gear crafting is much more strait forward than previously. The mine building algorithm is much better in this version as well. Many more chaining events with each run. This had been a particular gripe of mine with v2. In the first version I had many chained blasts and events, but they seemed to tone them down in v2. Now this version brings back that excitement!! While I have already put in a lot of time, there are some block types I have yet to see from previous versions. And I have not seen any new block types (aside from monsters). I look forward to updates. Hope they produce a Halloween map full of monsters wearing costumes and classic movie monsters.

    I played the 1st game in the series when i was younger, the mechanic where you don't keep upgrading the same picaxe is what i thought was so cool, trying to see what happened next. The removal of this is upsetting but this game hold up well.

    Don't write too many reviews but I loved this game so much that I felt compelled to. Was looking for a new game after the latest Lords of Waterdeep update completely ruined my all-time favorite mobile game. Settled on the Ascension card game and then found this. This is a lot of fun...not chaotic than the Games I usually play but I absolutely love the variety of cards, power ups, craftable items, and treasures. Explosions are great and the monsters are just challenging enough to keep the game interesting without giving you the level. I have yet to buy anything in-app. You can totally play this free as long as you're willing to earn it. I don't buy victory. Going to be trying to collect treasure sets for a looooong time. Great game...thank the Lords of Waterdeep developers for pushing me over this way.

    I like the older games better than this one. This art style looks worse and is harder to read.

    The updates just keep getting better. Also I have just one request. Is there any possibility of bringing back the watch a video for gems like from the first game. I can never get tapjoy to work but if we had the watch a video option available it would be a really great addition. Because TapJoy never works. But I would gladly watch as many gardenscape videos for some sweet sweet gems. Otherwise such an amazing game. Always so fun to play and it’s has been fun playing on crews now. Also thank you for adding the participants get the prizes only in crew tournaments. It really helps motivate people to actually participate. Hopefully one day I will get to El1te.

    Good fun game, events keep it interesting - the adventures can be difficult but perseverence pays off :)
  • Attack of the miner monsters!! Sep 24, 2017

    By Did djcjdndkcv
    This game is great and better than the previous pocket mines, but the monsters are a bad addition. They always hit you because you have no time to react and kill them before they hurt you. You lose in unfair ways. My friend just a second ago got to the chest at the end and died to a monster down there before he could even open the chest. Please just take them out, or at least make them easier to kill. There’s a perk on some purple items that give 60% MORE monsters, like why would you equip that? I honestly almost wanna stop playing it or just get pm2 just to stop with monsters. I feel like the devs just made them to make it different from the previous game, and I don’t like it as much because of it.

    Fun game. Had pocket mine 2 before this, loved it, so I got this one. They’ve added monsters, which my first take was “no,” but now, I occasionally play pocket mine 2 on my kindle, and miss those little things. Love the surprised faces before you kill them, and yes, they are a very good addition. It’s harder to progress in #3, I think, but it’s because they give you harder levels sooner, so I’m getting more stars on the levels I already passed. But yes, this is a good game, and you will enjoy it.

  • Energy requirements are outrageous Jan 31, 2019

    By Laschmelala
    I hate the monsters. It's not at all clear how you're supposed to take advantage of "startling" them. But beyond that, the events and levels require way too much energy! What I loved about PM2 was the higher level events asked for rubies, which you had to work to earn, not 3 energy, which you have to wait--or, what Roofdog wants--pay for. I also hate the way the characters work now. Their powers are limited to charge ups instead of lasting throughout the level. That's a real downgrade from the second game. And I miss the variety of ore. It kept the mine visually interesting as you descended. I miss the goals. This game really misses the mark compared to its predecessor.
  • Those monsters tho... Oct 30, 2017

    By Denoms
    Pocket Mine 2 was an excellent game to carry around and play when you get a quick break but the sequel introduces monsters which often appear and do 2x damage to you pick. On an 8x level that 16 damage and if a few drop from above or you run into a few at a time you'll be destroyed in a moment. You're only other option is to tap like mad at the screen to try and hit during their .5 second of "surprise" which will inevitably lead to you mining useless areas around the monsters and in effect damaging you pick without hitting the monster (who will then damage your pick...). Too bad, not a great mechanic.

    Screen scroll needs to stick to a speed. Not speed up, slow down, speed up etc... throught 1 level. It's annoying.

    I remember I played a miner game many years ago. I could play it for hours. Fun times. Pocket Mine 3 is utter trash though, you KNOW by first mine it's just anf ugly grind fest. Steer clear of this, and probably Roofdog in general.

  • A total blast Sep 24, 2017

    By Fozrukk
    Upgrading your cards and miners is satisfying and rewarding. It’s also fun to watch explosions chain their way down the mine and reach greater depths. There are myriad collections to complete and quick challenges along the way to keep some strategy involved. I think the gear choices are interesting and meaningful and I would love to see even more creative item bonuses and effects. This is one of the few games I’ve kept on my phone longer than a week. Great job!

    It works great and is super fun! You Have opportunity to play for a long time even when you run out of battery lifes. It gets glitchy sometimes in the middle of playing in a game but other than that wonderful!
  • Good game, but lots of crashing and white outs during ads. Mar 18, 2018

    By Pinball9597
    The majority of the reviews don't seem to have this happening, but for Ipad 2, the game is playable. The problem though is a lot of crashing and most of the ads I've played recently have been whiting out and I haven't been able to get cash doubler or extra energy. Please fix it and other than that, this game is practically impeccable.

  • Nearly perfect.... Sep 17, 2017

    By Psychovampyre
    I loved pocket mine 2 and I love 3 even more. The power ups and gear are amazing and collecting money, coins, and artifacts are extremely satisfying. It's so exciting when you craft an awesome piece of gear and manage to combine it with equally powerful cards. The only thing keeping the game from being virtually perfect is the monsters, you have literally a millisecond to kill them before they hurt you and there's a ton of them sometimes. If we had just a little more time to kill them before being hit and your energy built up a little faster then I'd give the game a total 5 stars. Either way though, I'm completely addicted to pocket mine 3 and I highly recommend you try it!

    Fun but maybe causes lagg? Been playing for about 2 hours, after a while my phone got super laggy especially after unlocking stuff that makes explosions happen pretty frequently. Even after exiting the game my phone was experiencing pretty heavy lagg for about 5 minutes until it went back to normal. It was pretty fun otherwise for first impressions. My phone is Samsung galaxy s10e so don't think is a problem with my phone either.
  • The explosions are quite satisfying Oct 2, 2017

    By Lingrush24
    I've been looking unsuccessfully for a proper digging/exploration game for some time. This one is hugely addictive thanks to the feeling of constantly opening presents, with explosions. And it's not too greedy with the IAP: the starter pack is enough for me to make nearly constant progress with an appropriate level of difficulty. I managed to reach the end of the adventure just when I was afraid I could not progress due to the blacksmith limit. But now I’m out of content and would really like some kind of endless mode...

    Love the game... but need a way to spend lower tokens on higher tokens.... not just high tokens swapped for the lower ones. Feels a bit rigged that way
  • Very fun Jan 26, 2018

    By Daldora
    I enjoy playing between classes on campus rounds are quick and fun The one feature i miss most from pocket mine 2 is being able to setup specfic builds for characters with both cards and gear Theyve recently rolled out a feature that you can buy legendary gear with a random card equiped to it... this caters to pay to win players which is a bit scary but hopefully we will see more content readily availble to those who dont want to or cant pay real money
  • Not as good as the second one. Oct 15, 2018

    By ZizZap4
    It just feels like a lazy repackaging of Pocket Mine 2 (for the most part the same textures are used, sometimes where unnecessary (beach anchors and starfish in a desert area?)) with some odd mechanic choices made. The enemies, while interesting, often feel finicky to have to deal with. They try to make up for a much smaller variety in ore types by upping how many pick hits each block takes to mine and by setting a depth limit of 200m on areas you’ve already completed. Characters are now randomized, which is just a smidge frustrating. Pickaxes are now gear, which can only be upgraded to a certain point, as opposed to the indefinite upgrading featured in previous games. Overall, it’s just not as enjoyable of an experience as the previous entry.

    after around 100h played. spent some money on it aroun 40$. Pay to win, mechanics. You wont win tournaments to progress, since only top 1% gets the best tokens, there is so little casual players that the top 1% is almost impossible to achieve against those that play the game for a very long time and are maxed out. Game becomes very repetitive soon, not many interesting mechanics are added. With current reward system its way too grindy. even paying for everything wont help you get to that 1% now

    seems like a decent enough game. Will probably quit soon though as there appears to be no way to remove the ad watching requirment stuff.
  • Not better than 2 Dec 27, 2017

    By Madylyn02
    I miss the ability to choose my deck layouts for my characters. Ie a depth layout, money maker, etc. The gear system I don’t like as well because I seem to get the same stuff over and over and it’s harder to customize plus a lot more expensive. The monsters could be fun if they didn’t take a defense point or 3 just by looking at you. All in all I love the pocket mine series but still like the 2nd best.
