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 4.5 / 5 stars

Pretty good game, it starts off rather slow, so it may not attract many people, but all in all a good game.

I really enjoyed the game. It reminded of an old game that game out in 2006 named motherload. I expierenced no bugs during my gameplay thoughout the game. I was hopeing more of a challenge. The core was easy to get to really. If you played Motherload it has a surpise ending. I enjoyed the game 4.5/5


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

it is one of the best games ever, you just need more ores, quests and equipment, and mady a better starting battery. But other than that, a great game

Honestly, this game was a game l played back when l was a child, and it truly has inspired me to become a much better and experienced gamer; honestly, it was the reason why I started playing Newgrounds; hell, why I started playing Flash games at all! The game may be simple and short, and of course eight-bit, but that's what makes it so damn charming! However, half a star is taken off due to the fact that, although this game (in my mind) is rather legendary, it IS very short and, after you buy the fourth cooling upgrade, you can just get a few diamonds and buy everything. Other than that, I couldn't have any more praise for this game.

Final Rating: 4.5 Stars
