Dwarves and Dragons share somewhat similar habits – they like hoarding gold and hiding underground. Despite these similarities, when they meet in dragon caves, Dragons tend to fry dwarves with their hellfire. Yet, even despite this fact, dwarves` urge for treasures is a lot more powerful than their self-preservation sense (or even their common sense). Thus, dwarves tend to dig deep to get to gold and other treasures, and a lot of stories are told about this in computer games. like Dwarf Fortress or Craft the World.
Treasure Mine by Red Tiger Gaming is one of such games.

In addition, players need no download, no registration and even no digging license in order to play it.
