Looking for info on a vintage game I used to play when we had free time in elementary school. It was on a vintage Macintosh classic or newer. I remember it having a color display

Anyway the game involved these little miners digging a path underground.... each minor had a function and if you got it wrong... a rock can cave in on you or your miner falls into a pit and it’s game over


Anyone have the slightest ideas on what I’m talking about?

I cut my teeth on Chip’s Challenge (PC). Still have fond memories of the rage-inducing puzzles.
Yeah I had that as part of BOWEP which bundled it with Tetris, Ski Free, Pipe Dream, Rodent’s Revenge, and a few others... good times. :)

Aside from my Atari 2600, my c64 jam back in the day was jumpman. Hooked my Atari joystick into the c64 for hours upon hours of fun.

Legacy of the Ancients was another badass game that ate up a bunch of my youth as well as D&D curse of the azure bonds.

Fun titles. Oh man now I have to dig out my c64 & get some jumpman action going.
