Save and medals :( :(

This game is great, there is greater potential for a part 2, my complaint is , this game will not save my progress when i come back to it later, saved it and went away two times and came back and had to start from scratch again, other than that, this is a great game, would love to see a sequel, maybe make it way deeper and include more upgrades like a lazer drill or a bigger driller and some more mineral types. Also i noticed that a few games on newgrounds are starting to hide the medals and i would not have know that they were applied to the account unless i was logged in, please make the medals aware to the people if you can.

Generic Biased Review

As everyone is pointing out - This is just motherlode. In my opinion you have downgraded a perfectly good game. I will only compare the two to make a point.

Gameplay - Failry boring. There is no incentive to dig down other than to gain a high score. Motherlode has a basic story that compels you to dig deeper. Also there is hardly any challenge to the game. The fact that you can dig upwards makes this game a truckload easier than Motherload. Changing that would be a complete revamp. You need to find an alternate incentive and challenging aspect to improve this. 2/5

Visuals - This has its own style. Fresh and different. Or so you would think. There are alot of games now that use this kind of art style. The color palette is nice ; Contrasting the underground with the overground fairly well. The animating was not as smooth as I'd want, Especially the turning. 3/5

Audio - Annoying and repetitive. The ambience needs to be quieter. When I was up-top, I had to endure the constant chirping of birds. The constant bleeping when your cargo is full was annoying. The Digging sounds have little or no variation. I'll give credit that the sounds fit nicely with the art but could do with variation. My advice: Less annoying bleeps and sounds. 4/5

Overall I give this a 6/10. It is a solid concept that needs polishing and improvements.

Nice but not GREAT!

Can get to be pretty boring after a while of the same stuff but its time-consuming and addictive. I just wished there was more excitement to this game. For example, the driller encounters a few creatures or etc.

Nice try, but....

Well , nice game, plenty of work went into it for sure. But...
It's just like the game Motherload. Same setup - fuel station, materials selling station , upgrades, save point. Minerals, blah blah blah. Except no physics system.

If you are inspired by the game, at least you have to say so.
Anyways, nice try, but next time if you like something, make it a bit more unique and original.
