This was fun... until Flash crashed and took my game down with it. And since there's no autosave and no reminder for you to save manually all the time, I lost an hour's worth of progress.

So, that's the first problem with it: it doesn't auto-save.

The second problem I had with it is more fundamental in nature. Games like these walk a very fine line between "impossible to win" and "impossible to lose"; unless the player deliberately does stupid things here, they're pretty much guaranteed to always find enough valuables to make a profit, and thus they'll always be able to buy more stuff, go deeper, explore more, mine more (and make more money) and ultimately do everything there is to do.

Once you realize that, there isn't much of a point to playing the game anymore. Yet there isn't much that YOU, the author, could've done about it, either: the alternative would've been a game that might have been impossible to win even for a player who didn't make any mistakes, and that's very frustrating in its own right.

As such, I'm not sold on the concept of the game. OTOH, I DID enjoy it while I played it, so here's 2.5 stars from me. You probably can't do anything about the game's design, but if you update it, or if you release a new game... PLEASE make it auto-save.

As with the guy before me

Its hard to give this a fair rating with this being such a poor clone of motherload

A lame version of motherload

Not Original at all. Just a complete ripoff of a better game.

Fun, but...

I have to agree, this is a copy of Motherload, and with out giving it credit is just not cool, but still i like the game regardless of whether it is a copy

Mega Review!

It is a lot like motherload.

Likes: art, interface, and sfx

Dislikes: not original, there is no hook ( automaticly I felt like playing another game,) the game felt handicapped, to lean back, and just plain boring.

I had a lot more fun playing Motherload then this, The thing that really made it low on my ratings was the originality. The game felt like it came from Facebook ( a lot of the games on there is terrible.) It also felt like someone was holding my hand while I was playing it ( thats what I mean't by handicapped.) However I did like how you changed the meters ( much more noticeable.)

Overall the game could've had more to stand out, to go above Motherload, but if you were to make a sequel I would love to see what you could dish out on that one to go above this one.

Goodbye.
