I won't give this a 'bad' score...

For being like Motherload. However, I can't shake the feeling some things were either copied-directly/inspired from Motherload. (Namely the drill upgrades, a few of the items, and the rocks) Either way, there's good and bad emanating from this.

Let's start with the good:
-Ability to go/drill in any direction, due to lack of gravity.
-Upgrades, to reward efficiency in gathering resources and to help gather even more.
-Realistic feel to it, having to keep an eye on several gauges.
-Temperature was a wonderful touch, especially comparing it to Motherload, since all the radiators were really for was reducing lava damage, which is completely avoidable altogether.
-With temperature, radiators are useful.
-Missions; both for rewarding you for doing certain tasks and the little comments a few had.

Now for the bad; keep in mind, I haven't completely finished the game, because I can't stand the bad:
-Health is useless; therefore, upgrading the chassis (or w/e it's called) is a waste of money. As far as I'm concerned, the only way to damage yourself is via going to deep, and even then...Radiators and common sense prove viable. Which leads to...
-Lack of gravity. This, in my opinion, is what makes Motherload a much better game than this one. Why? Because it provided more challenge and depth into the game, making you act cautiously when dive-bombing through tunnels you've made, forcing you to keep track of the paths you make. You hardly have to keep track of where you go in this game.
-Lack of story. Why am I digging? What's my purpose? Is it for fame and fortune? To feed my wife and children? Answering one of these gives the game so much more depth. I'll admit, the missions and item/upgrade descriptions give some depth/personality to the game, but that's about it.
-Random music when I buy something? It might just be me, but the music shuts down while I'm digging, but then re-activates as soon as I buy an item/upgrade. Glitch? If not, you might want to fine tune that. Either keep it mute or with music all the way.
-The warnings got annoying. At least for full load. Once or twice is enough for me, but having to hear it all the way as I go up a few hundred miles upwards is quite enough.
-Upgrades cost a bit too much. Once I needed to upgrade my radiators to move further downwards, I ended up needing to upgrade my fuel tank..forcing me to harvest more resources around the same vicinity, getting me no further than I was despite spending a good sum for that other upgrade I needed.
-Too many rocks. Sure, there's no gravity, but the rocks only made it annoying at times, forcing me to drill a maze to get around them, only to drill another one soon after. Sure, there's dynamite, but I'm saving my money for upgrades, sadly.
-If this was copied/inspired from Motherload, why no Engine upgrade? (Mostly put that there to probably defend the author that he/she wasn't even aware of Motherload) It feels awfully bland to watch yourself go down for a few minutes, only to go back up for a few minutes and repeat the cycle.

I'm sorry this is a huge review, but point is, there's a lot to fix up. I enjoyed this game for a little while, but the bad far outdoes the good. Nice effort into it though. ^_^ 6/10 3/5

16-bit Motherload??

Runs good and great graphics, but isn't this very similar to MotherLoad?


Rated 3 / 5 stars

It was alright

It kept my attention for a long while but it is way too repetitive, and you basically HAVE to get the teleporter or else you will get nowhere in the game after about 500-600 Depth, needs more things to do to keep the user occupied.

Why the hell would you put the map in that spot? It blocks a major chunk of the screen.

Even though this is a copy of motherload, at least you can save your progress on new grounds without making some bullshit account.
