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 stars

A very nice digging game, although I found it a bit too short and too easy. I finished it in my first sitting, in about an hour. At first it was actually quite hard, but it's basically the same as with other mining games - just dig to the max depth (before taking damage), pick up the best ores (iron at the beginning) and go sell them. After the first upgrade (which for me was the hull for $500), the game got really, really easy, especially if you don't buy the next available upgrades but save a bit to buy some better (so you don't lose money for the previous upgrade).

I like this game. It's fun to just dig deeper, it sure kills time in a pleasant way.
The music may loop but never gets on my nerves, the only somewhat negative part is the short time that all achievements as well as Jobs need to be done. But it's a flash game, so that part is kind of a given. Overall 4 out of 5, I'd say.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Once I started playing this game I just had to finish.
Music was very good.
A little short but still worth playing.
Kudos on making a very simple yet impressive game.

Took me 4 days to beat the game. Pretty good, got boring at times, but overall it was ok, deserves 4 stars..

Maybe you could make it better in the 2nd version if you're going to make one.. more valuable rock to find, more jobs, more upgrades, the graphics are cool so that does not have to change, the only thing I'd change drastically is the music, as it gets very tedius and boring, maybe you could add differant tunes? Just a few ideas hey. I liked this game, keep up the good work :)

P.s maybe add even more tiers to the level so it take longer to get to the bottom, I ripped up about a half the landscape after I'd completely upgraded to my shiny diamond robot.. and another thing.. You could add is instead of one COre you could have several.. such as for each tier you go down e.g

!st tier - COre 1
2nd tier - COre 2
etc etc, and make them more valuable and harder to get.

Maybe throw in a boss at the end? (Who doesn't love to face a boss to complete the game hey?)

Oh and add more medal gets! I like collecting medals :D



Rated 4 / 5 stars
