I'm wondering what factors play into the duration of the Super Drill activated by collecting Mana vials in Tiny Miners (the one by 'About Fun', not to be confused with 'Tiny Miner').

It seems the higher the level of the mine the lower overall the length of the Super Drill is, despite my Magic Skill constantly increasing.


A SuperDrill can last only for a few seconds, and I know you would love to have this beast for a few more seconds. Well, you can boost Magic SuperDrill duration by increasing its stats. To do this, you will need to equip those items that add magic points to the total Magic SuperDrill stats. You will also have to craft different types of items and imbue them to add more magic points.

The Magic Super Drill duration increases by 1 second for every 10 points of magic added to “Magic SuperDrill” stats, which can be accessed by tapping the helmet icon on the home screen (check the screenshot above ). It will take you to “Your Gear” section. If stats show “10”, then the superdrill duration will be increased by 1 second. At “20”, it will increase by another second and so on.

You can check how many extra seconds you received by increasing magic by tapping a level on the level map. Bonus seconds will be shown under the quest description.

UPDATE: As mentioned in the comments below, the answer was not satisfactory.

However, the following does:

The last line of the shown pop-up indicates that each dungeon has a "magic" setting

The last line of the shown pop-up indicates that each dungeon has "magic setting", which will affect the duration of your Super Drill.

Those "magic settings" can be found when selecting a mine and will show at the top. It says "Superdrill duration" with a total time and an indication of the time that has been added by your Magic Skill.

Magic settings are shown at the top.

So you may be correct about the duration feeling lower and lower in each new mine due to higher mines having higher "magic settings".

  • Yeah so that's the obvious bit which I stated I already knew in my question but there is clearly more to it. I have 18.4 seconds of super drill but the mines I'm on now clearly state that it only lasts for 3.4 seconds. I want to know where the difference is coming from. – Karoly S Nov 3 '16 at 17:20
  • I am wondering if my answer is correct after I updated it. – Daniel Nov 8 '16 at 7:22
