Review Deep Town: Mining Factory

Brandon Girod
8.9Excellent
Charming graphics, unique resource mechanics, story adds context
Some elements of the progression feel too artificial
If you follow the site at all, you’re probably pretty aware of how much I enjoy idle clickers. Deep Town for Android is a game that, at a glance, looks like another typical clicker but it’s anything but that. This is a game about mining where upgrading isn’t as straightforward as clickers before it.
The sense of progression in this game isn’t about getting a gazillion of one resource and just upgrading everything all willy-nilly. Instead, you’ll be mining tons of resources, selling some of the resources you mine while using the rest to continue upgrading your factories, drills and more as you continue drilling downward and explore the planet.
Interestingly enough, the game actually sets up a bunch of context around what you're doing with a bit of story. I won’t give away any bits, and there isn’t really much to give away, but it’s nice to have just that bit of context to help give what you’re doing a bit of meaning.
Mining can be a bit of a chore, however. You’ll mine through levels and eventually come to these floors with tentacles where the floors have a ton of life heal themselves. They’re basically walls where you can’t progress until you upgrade your factories and drills enough to get past them. Unfortunately, I just don’t like the fact that they heal through your drills. I’d rather there be an arbitrary time limit because the heal really makes no sense.
Overall, Deep Town is a really fun and engaging game that feels both unique and challenging. I love the fact that you’ve got a ton of resources you’re managing rather than one and the game’s context just makes sense.
