EZ Miner

About:
EZ Miner is block breaking mini-game that encourages players to reach high scores by breaking larger sets of blocks, as well as removing key items from the board. Occasionally the player is given consumable powerups on the board they they are able to use for different clear patterns.

Originally intended to be a 'skill game' of sorts, I wanted to reward players with currency for getting certain scores. However laws and rules prevented me from doing so, so I redesigned it to be an arcade game.
Analytics:
However, the most important part about anything is recording what players do. I keep track of a variety of things like: How many Powerups are used in a session, Resource counts, Score, Session Length, and the Largest Combo.
