*****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)

Motherlode?

This game is quite clearly inspired from motherlode but it lacks all the features that motherlode possesed. This game dosen't seem to have much of a goal and dosen't have the same feeling of its predecessor. I think this game is missing heart, the zest that all games need to keep you hooked. However, this game could be fantastic if it was improved in little bits.

I rate 5/10, because this game is good it just needs something else. :)

maybe its not my kind of game

i found it dull after 20 minutes and didn't really see much to overcome other than overheating and dealing with maintaining your fuel and craft. It would be nice if I collected ore not to just sell it but to actually make upgrades. Teleporters could be set at certain buried levels you have to uncover, buying them is tedious. This is the RPG "Quest for the bigger sword" loop in a new twist.

ripoff

just a worse version of motherlode also needs a quality change option.
