Shinier but otherwise failed copy

Still trying to figure out how the miner can go up and down a vertical shaft on treads alone and not fall when its jet stops.

Nicely polished but a poor copy of motherload.

It's sure not Motherload, the actions take way too much time, I find it frustrating to be holding down a key watching the mining machine slooooooooooowlyyyyyy crawwwwwwwwwllllllll everywheeeeeeeeeeeere.

You made something worse...

Pretty good game play, but somebody created a better system already, with a better game play, better upgrading system, and better ending to the game...

The game pay does not make sense compare to the "other" game too...

Weak ripoff that could use a tutorial to show diff

Upgrading the drill to get through rocks and earth is cool, but cooling system was so high of a priority that I didn't even notice that you can upgrade drill to drill through rock. Also, nothing told you directly that drilling through rock hurts you. Also, annoying message when cargo is full is annoying as you probably drilled to get it full. Also, the fuel warning needs a critical warning when you're really close to not being able to make it. Also the temperature meter is pretty much useless as taking damage from overheating looks like a boolean thing. Would be better to have 1 line on the bar indicating overheating threshold and maybe the different cooling systems just have diff threshold positions.

Besides those annoyances, it's quite annoying not being able to move faster somehow and it gets annoying when it takes you a whole minute to get back to your portal place or the surface after you get full cargo ( you should probably increase maximum cargo size or allow for dropping of useless cargo).

The portals are cool but you probably should emphasize it more since I thought it was the same as motherload.

Another horrible design decision was the fact that you don't really know where those treasure spots are and it's also bad giving "achievements" for exploring a lot of the map since that is boring and tiresome = bad.

Finally, it seems that the repair shop charges 1.5 times what it says it charges?

Comparisons to "Motherlode" aside..

This game was okay. It can get very addicting, but there are some major problems. First of all, the upgrades are unfairly expensive. You spend more money getting gas to go down and mine than you are earning. Second, the gas goes down too fast. Far, FAR too fast. It feels like I can only go down for maybe a minute before I have to rush back up to refill gas, and that retracts back to the first issue because the gas can also get expensive!

But those problems aside, this isn't a very bad game. It's an addictive game with some problems.
