Movement: WASD or Arrow Keys

-Don't run out of fuel! You'll need to dig and collect a few minerals, sell them at the mineral shop, and then refuel at the gas station to stay alive in the first minute.


good but could be better

With Megaminer you actually get to the end of the game. In Motherload you get sick of all this 'exciting additional stuff' like dying all the time and refuelling every 2 seconds. 8/10 for the story and graphics -2 for the playability

Saw the reviews on mega miner

Decided to try it after everyone said Mega Miner was a rip off. While they are certainly similar, Mega Miner is a much needed update to this game. Better controlling, not falling down pits, being able to drill in a shaft, and no stupid propeller. Wasn't fun to play, and the controls are just ridiculous. Mega Miner was better (granted this game is from 2005, but there's no point in playing this when you have Mega Miner.)

Jesus Christ

It works fine on Google chrome, I have no idea what you people are talking about. Clearly there's something wrong with your connection if it doesn't work. Jesus Christ.

To the spam reviews below :

It works on chrome.

Plus,this is more fun than Mega Miner because:
a)Fun story
b)Its more intensive (music + hazards)
c)The machine is fast
e)Nostalgic feel - every old game has this magic.

Mega miner is GOOD.Just stating some points about how this isnt WORSE than Mega Miner.

Tried playing it because of reviews on mega miner. 1. This game wasn't as much fun in my opinion. 2. I couldn't play it on chrome.
I also don't see how anyone would say that mega miner is a ripoff of this game, they have enough differences.
