Pretty nice game! I actually did play for a big while!

Two bugs : Can't get the "found all artifacts" medal, and can't get the "all upgrades" medal.
Thanks.

I love the game, but the ship part is confusing, and im trying to figure out how to get to the upgrade menu.

I played this yesterday and loved it, takes a little more planning since you have limited lift (as opposed to Motherload), this is a good thing in my books. My only point of frustration was that I was durable to root around the bottom of a glacial world (200 ft I think), yet I was still stuck with the 2nd slowest drill due to not finding the right artifact to unlock whatever it was I needed to do the next upgrade. Having most of my driller on lvl 3 gear and being stuck with lvl 1 drill speed was kinda tedious.

Bigger problem is today the game won't load at all!!!! I'm working under the assumption that it's probably just some glitch from the updates or that I need to clear the data thats on my computer, but that means I'm gonna lose about 3 hours of "work"...... YUCK

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.

A nice, polished, RPG-styled mining game. Not without its minor flaws, but overall a very addicting and smooth-running game!

What I didn't like: The last leg of the upgrade system was incredibly tedious and long. Some of the upgrades were pointless, imo. The story is slightly confusing. (Probably because I haven't figured out how to end the game, or if there is a way)

What I liked: The graphics are of excellent quality. The resource system is one of the best I've seen so far, the ability to merge several smaller gems to make a bigger one and vice versa. Controls were smooth and responsive for the most part. Very addicting.

Suggestions:
- Create hotkeys for the Repair Kit, Gas Tank, etc.
- Ability to trade resources, somehow. (Have one type of resource act as a currency)
- Add more tracks/control for background music

Other than that, nothing else comes to mind right now. Seemed like a lot of work was put into the making of this game. Good job!
