Miner Trouble is a simple, browser based, top-down puzzle game. It was inspired byt such games as Chip's Challenge and Sokoban. This game was created as part of the 2012 GitHub Game Off.

How to play

To play, either download the code and open index.html in your web browser or visit our testing mirror.

You play as Murray the Minor who needs to navigate his way out of the mines, by solving a series on puzzles. The game uses basic controls:

  • Use left, up, right, down keys to navigate Maurray
  • Carts may be pushed around the puzzle
  • Carts may be pulled while holding A
  • Avoid Dynomite
  • Reach the ladder to complete the level after collecting all the rubies.

NB: Local play doesn't seem to work in Chrome, but does in IE and Firefox.


Miner Trouble will work on all browsers with Javascript. The game has been tested in the lastest versions of:

  • IE
  • Firefox
  • Chrome (No local play)


No server-sides scripts are used so no webserver is required. Simply download and open index.html in your browser.
