Players have the ability to craft items and blocks by hand or by a workbench. When using workbenches, certain items or blocks are required to be placed in a specific place to craft the specific item or block wanted.

There is a option called "Easy Craft" listing every craftable item or block and how they are crafted. When first use of it, a pop-up will show up and state that easy craft will craft any unlocked item or block selected from the easy craft list. Pressing (x) will make the pop-up not show up again in the world the player is visiting.

There have been several updates to the game. Currently, the latest update is version 2.5 on the Xbox 360, and 2.7.3 on the PC.


There has been heavy a few people criticizing against Total Miner for attempting to "copy" Minecraft. Total Miner is not found as an exact copy to Minecraft or plagiarism in its development, and has listed Minecraft and Miner Dig Deep as an inspiration to Total Miner in their Credits. Many critics say Total Miner is just basically Minecraft.

Despite this, a number of gamers would still ignore the acceptance of Total Miner being an open sandbox game that is independent in its design and foundation to Minecraft.[citation needed]
