Even though this game is greatly superior to any of the other miner games like this I've seen on here... I had to give this game a 4 instead of 5 because going through all that trouble then leaving out the ability to continue unfurls your game's play value. And, yes, I do see the button to continue. It is always greyed out. And I'm not willing to waste all that time getting back to where I was. I guess with that in mind, maybe this game is a 3.5 star. Can't stress enough how important it is to being able to continue.

I really liked this game, gets boring after a while though, no real challenge. But I loved the modules and the researching aspects, and definitely the ability to change locations. We need more random games like this! <3

If Motherload and this game got married and had a kid it would be the coolest mining game ever. :D

I really liked the game. Also in the first video I noticed a lot of similarities to the opening to farscape. Was that a coincidence ( tbh I doubt that) or what. Either way it made me laugh.

After the first several item finds they all seem to turn to resources rather than items, leaving me with no other upgrades to look forward to as I don't have the required components. The help file doesn't mention anything I might be missing to find more, so I'm just assuming it's a matter of rarity - gets very monotonous after the first hour or so.

Great game.
The only bad thing about it is that gemstone deposites look WAY too large.
It makes the game look amateur.
