Casual Gaming was never more fun

This is a modern take on the concept of a (or some...) really old game(s).
It's nice to see something that I used to play on DOS almost 20 years ago brought back in such a fun way.

Keeping enough of the original formula intact to maintain the same fun gameplay, while changing just enough to make it fresh makes this submission great.

This game is calm, slow paced, and fun. It's big enough to keep you entertained for hours.

*****CONTAINS SPOILERS***** (Big deal...)

I'm going to try to write this review without comparing the game to "Motherload"[sic], because everyone is probably sick of that by now...

Here goes:

This game started out fun. Making money from mining various ores, upgrading your rig, making progress toward the quests... There were even a couple of rather enticing and mysterious quests at the bottom about "black boxes" and "buried kings".

You would think that after completing one of said quests, you would receive some kind of reward for your labours, like a rare upgrade you can't find in the shop, or fighting Satan, like in M--Shit. Nevermind. But No, all you get is a text box that says something like "ZOMG, THIS WILL CHANGE SCIENCE FOREVER!!!!!!!!!11one" But still, I pressed on, completing all the quests, digging long, tedious lines though rock, dirt, gems and ore, just to see if I'd get to see or do something cool at the end of the game. Nope, just one last text box telling me that I found the last big-ass gem.

FOR FUCKSAKES, AT LEAST GIVE THE GAME AN ENDING! A BOSS FIGHT, A CUTSCENE, HELL, I'D EVEN SETTLE FOR THE WORDS "You rich, son!" AND A PICTURE OF A GUY SITTING ON A BEACH IN TAHITI! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!

*Ahem.*

So yeah, did this game kill a couple hours? Yes.
Did this game excite me at all? Sadly, no.
I just dug around for a bit and read a bunch of text boxes. I would definitely call this game "mediocre".

5/10
0/5 (Because it /really/ does not deserve a 3.86)

This game

This game is pretty fun. I liked it. It's also a peaceful and slow paced game. But in my opinion it kinda made me wanna dig more and some of the quests helped as well. I think there is a lot of room for improvement though. Specifically? Add more quests.
