Material Mole 3 is a challenging, fun driving and freight-transportation game for kids where you have to deliver precious jewels and minerals from one part of a mine to another on time. You play the role of Material Mole, an expert miner and cargo-cart driver who has been given the important job of protecting and transporting these valuable objects along the underground passageways. However, moving these treasured uncut gems can be really tricky!
For example, you only have a certain amount of time to deliver the important goods, so you’d better be on your toes! Keeping your mining cart balanced on the rocky terrain can be tricky, so it’s important to display a steady hand and utilize your quick reaction skills. If you fancy yourself as a top-class freight transporter with good balancing abilities, and can take the weight of the whole world above your head, then this underground driving adventure should be right up your track! Good luck, and happy delivering!
How to Play: In each of the 10 increasingly tricky levels, your objective is to carefully transport jewels and other objects from one end of a mine to the other. You have to reach the end of the level in a certain amount of time, and have a minimum number of uncut gem rocks in your cart in order to progress. On the level selection screen, hover your computer mouse over the level to see the minimum cargo requirements / time limit for each unlocked level. For example, in Level 1, you have to complete the level in under 50 seconds with at least 2 items remaining in your cart.
At the beginning of each level, a conveyor belt drops the precious stones into the back of your cart. Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard or touchscreen to maneuver. Up Arrow = Accelerate; Down Arrow = Brake / Reverse; Left & Right Arrows = Balance the cart. Along the track, there are alternative routes that you can take, indicated by Green and Red Lights. Hit Spacebar on your keyboard to change your route along the track. If you spot an extra jewel still embedded in the roof of the mine, hit the Shift key to make it drop down (make sure your cart is positioned underneath it first).
Keep one eye on the clock at the top of the game screen. Try to reach the Delivery Point before your allotted time is up, otherwise you don’t make it to the next level. You can see how far you have progressed toward the Delivery Point on the Progress Bar in the bottom right of the playing area. To the left of this, your fuel level steadily decreases as you drive along. If you run out of fuel, it’s game over, and you have to restart the level. Tip: Take your time as you drive along the difficult terrain. Going too fast and taking too many risks causes your valuable freight to fall out of the cart. Steady as you go wins this race!
