Daily 2nd place, frontpaged, so many kind reviews and such a nice rating! Well, thanks a lot guys, you're awesome! :D

EDIT: This game was inspired by 'Motherload'. It is about mining ores and selling them to buy upgrades and drill deeper. Utopian Mining is part of this mining genre, so the games share the same basic concept. However, I did my very best to make it different to other mining games, by adding a different atmosphere, a story, some quests, cartoony-8bit-graphics and another feeling to it (and some other small stuff, too).

I hope you enjoy playing it. :)

Welcome to Utopia!
A few days ago a storm destroyed nearly the whole town.
Help these people and find out more about the Core-Ore...
Mine around as a mining robot, earn money, buy better hardware and complete missions.

This game has a few missions, different upgrades for your robot like drills, chasis, cooling liquids and batteries, awesome music made by Kevin MacLeod, some selfmade 8bit sounds, and lots of coal, iron, gold, wolfram, smaragd, ruby and diamonds!

How to play:
'LEFT', 'UP', 'RIGHT', 'DOWN' - move around
'X' - interact with things
'C' - cancel or leave
'J' - jobs
'M' - map
'I' - inventory

Free medals basically. Fun game but as others have said make it much longer and a decent difficulty curve in the sequel (fingers crossed).


Rated 3 / 5 stars

This game was fun, but it was essentially a simplified version of the game motherload that came out ages ago, except this game had objectives. motherload was at least somewhat challenging, but the only way to die in this game is to be incredibly stupid. at the end of motherload *(SPOILER ALERT)* at the very bottom of the map is a huge boss which you have to fight using bomb items you could buy (there were many types of upgrades and single use items, as i said, this game is simpler), and i was expecting a similar ending to this game. what i found was incredibly anticlimactic as the 'final challenge' wasn't a challenge at all. I had all the upgrades a fair while before the end of the game, and the end was just a grind to finish the remaining challenges (although technically the whole game was a grind).

overall, mediocre game, sorry.

Nice! Think it should be either a bit longer though... Or a bit more challenging. Still had a lot of fun though. :3
