Daily 2nd place, frontpaged, so many kind reviews and such a nice rating! Well, thanks a lot guys, you're awesome! :D

EDIT: This game was inspired by 'Motherload'. It is about mining ores and selling them to buy upgrades and drill deeper. Utopian Mining is part of this mining genre, so the games share the same basic concept. However, I did my very best to make it different to other mining games, by adding a different atmosphere, a story, some quests, cartoony-8bit-graphics and another feeling to it (and some other small stuff, too).

I hope you enjoy playing it. :)

Welcome to Utopia!
A few days ago a storm destroyed nearly the whole town.
Help these people and find out more about the Core-Ore...
Mine around as a mining robot, earn money, buy better hardware and complete missions.

This game has a few missions, different upgrades for your robot like drills, chasis, cooling liquids and batteries, awesome music made by Kevin MacLeod, some selfmade 8bit sounds, and lots of coal, iron, gold, wolfram, smaragd, ruby and diamonds!

How to play:
'LEFT', 'UP', 'RIGHT', 'DOWN' - move around
'X' - interact with things
'C' - cancel or leave
'J' - jobs
'M' - map
'I' - inventory



Rated 5 / 5 stars

There are two things humanity will never stop needing: Energy sources, and flixel games. I'm not too sure about the energy thing, either.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very,very good game.I have one negative thing to say about it and that is it's too easy.But all in all nice game.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

How can you return to a saved game??I really don't want to start over, i saved many times at that tree


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This was a really good game. But don't let the 3.5 fool ya on that. I hate ratings anyway as they do that. Just read what I say.

This is not a game, in it's current form, for people who like to be pulled along the entire way at the prospect at the perfect something just out of reach. I got all the perfect equipment before I was halfway down and after that. I skipped most of the level to just get what I needed and nothing else.

I wish there was a way to make all the ores reward only half of what they do now or or make things more expensive to drive things along more. And maybe a way to make the trips up and down a little more..... bearable.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great game. The music and simplicity of the game made it awesome. I just wish it was a little bit longer. It was really fun playing the game, though :D
