The Most Insane Minecart Levels In Video Games

The Most Insane Minecart Levels In Video Games

There was a time when mines and minecarts dominated video games. If a platformer or RPG didn’t have a mine stage or a mine-themed dungeon, it wasn’t a game. We felt like mines — where actual mining was eschewed in favour of racing around on minecarts — were the most natural things in the world, just as common as forests.

Oh. You want to go from Town A to Town B? No problem at all, but the only way to do that is by crossing that giant abandoned mine complex in four minutes.
