just a worse version of motherlode also needs a quality change option.
Entertaining for a while
I enjoyed this game for about 20 minutes, but after a while i realized that the cooler is what you need to easily beat the game. Its a good game and when i first saw it I thought "Wow this is a complete rip-off of MotherLoad" but when i actually started playing it it was better then mother load. It was easier to go around and play. I liked the game, but it would not be somthing i would buy for a dollar. it might do well on the ipod/ipad with the tilting controling where you go.
Very good, kind of well....pointless
Now don't get me wrong I love a spelunking sandbox as much as the next guy (Terraria is one of the most addicting games I've ever played!) but aside from "Dig deeper, get minerals, sell at vendors" not much else, now if I have 20 minutes to kill than by all means you could do worse, but might I suggest adding a crafting system (Coal = Fuel, Iron = Lv1 Drill/armor enhancement, etc) just so I have more to do than just dig down until my hold is full and so on.
Yes, it's a 'rehash' of Motherload, but it runs better, simpler, and I've so far had as much fun with it as I've had with Motherload.
Pretty good, an ending would be nice though
I disagree with those who rate this low becouse of the similarity to Motherload. Yes, it's obvious that it was inspired by Motherload but why would this be a rip-off? It has many diffrences too! In this sense every single FPS is a ripoff of Wolf 3D.
Btw, if you must compare to Motherload I'd say it's an improvement over that, becous in this they took out everything that was annoying in the former. Here you can dig in any direction and so you can get to the surface easily, it saves not just your money and equipments but everything includeing your caves, you don't die becouse you will get saved for a price, you never fall, you can drill countinuosly and it is possible to drill trough stones. Also this game has real minerals and don't have gold drill (pardon, goldium drill), wich IRL probably wouldn't even be able to dig trough hard soil.
The only thing it lacks is some kind of story - wich I admit is not easy to make up for a mining game. But wihout a story it can't really have an ending and without an ending after a while it will eventually get boring.
