This game looks like fun, but I can't get past the tutorial level. The reason is that the game does not seem to register more than 2 button inputs at once, in certain places. While trying to ascend the long vertical corridor near the end of the tutorial, there is a section where the player must double-jump, press left, and press space in order to drill into iron nuggets in the side of the wall. I tried to do this for 10 minutes in all different qualities and with different techniques, but I could never drill in the wall, so I'd just fall down the corridor.

I tried multi-button inputs in other areas of the level, in different combinations with the same result. For example, press and hold the space bar to activate the drill, press up to jump, and then press left to drill left- the result is that the drill activates and I jump, but the game does not register the input to move left.

Frustrating! It must be a problem with my computer, since no one else seems to have had this problem, but almost 15 minutes of monkeying with this problem is too much for me.

I'm just wondering, i finished all upgrades, and got a load of resources. Does it end? or is it just me that is stuck? this is my 3rd play through and every time i just finish all upgrades. Can someone just tell me if there is an end?

this is the greatest mining game ever. I really think an aquatic portion would be a great idea

This game is absolutely fantastic. I was searching to replay Motherload when I came across a far superior version in this. I will anxiously await a sequel to this (underwater searching perhaps).
Combining my opinion with the comments below here are a few suggestions:
1) Ability to visit a previous planet or fixed planets instead of random travelling.
2) More upgrades but less clicking, if you have the inventory to build the subparts that should be done automatically somehow, although this might be very difficult for you to code.
3) Maybe have a system where you must gather enough fuel or resources before your ship can leave a planet.
4) C4 or bigger explosives than dynamite (like Motherload has)
5) Ability to drill into full lava pockets to collect a large glob but resulting in massive damage.
6) Maybe enemies or a boss of some kind but try not to do it like Motherload, I really didn't care for the C4 spamming boss fight.

Congratulations and this game should have been way higher than daily 3rd place, its pure excellence.
