Dwarven Den™ - The Mining Puzzle Game ($1.99 → Free, 48.3 MB): A delightful puzzle game from the popular Backflip Studios where you play as a jolly little dwarf on a quest to free his people by mining ancient ruins.

Long, long ago there was a great city of dwarves powered entirely by mystic blue crystals. For unknown reasons, the crystal’s power went out of control and demolished the city, entrapping its citizens in the process. It’s up to you to dig through the underground ruins to save your people. You’re able to tap on blocks to mine them and weave your way through complicated puzzles. The only problem is, you have a limited amount of energy, which comes in the form of red crystals, so you’ll have to be smart about where and what you mine. As you make your way through the tunnels, make sure to grab as much ore as possible to forge even better tools. You’ll also want to watch out for cave-ins and creepy critters lurking in the tunnels, because they will cost you precious gems. If you download Dwarven Den today, you’ll get to start out with a handful of gems. You can earn another handful by sharing the game with your friends on Facebook. Dwarven Den™ - The Mining Puzzle Game is available for free today only (05/07). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 829 ratings.
