“An awesome blend of obsessive compulsive profiteering and addictive, satisfying gameplay.”
4.5 / 5 – Game Revolution

“The sci-fi ’80s vibe is delightful and the perfect setting for this ridiculously addicting game. I find myself coming back to it at the end of every day, ready for a new adventure underground.”
8 / 10 – Destructoid

“Much like the comic strip I honestly can’t describe why this game is so fun. Gabe and I played it for hours last weekend and had a great time. It’s got some puzzle elements that you can choose to engage with if you want to but you can also just dig. It’s a very relaxing game and you can lose a couple hours to it wasy without even noticing.”

I got this solely to get a copy of Motherload: Goldium Edition on my Steam account.

If you were a fan of the original flash games, do not[/] buy Super Motherload. It can only be described as a huge disappointment. Play the copy of the original flash game that comes with it.

Motherload/Goldium Edition
I'm a longtime fan of the original, just like many of the people posting reviews here. While I admit this version of the game is a pale shadow of the original, but it still can be fun. You have to remember that back when the original first came out and I was playing it flash games were in the golden years. It was everything a game needed to be:
  • Free
  • Simple
  • Addicting
Eventually they did release a "premium" version of the game called "Goldium Edition" which at the time I didn't think added enough value to consider the purchase. (I think it was like $7 USD). You have to remember this was back in the pre Steam pre Smartphone age where most kids got "allowances."

Motherload did have a shelf life though, so despite how amazingly fun it was you could only play it through a couple times before it did get boring, despite how satisfying that BZZZT drilling sound was. It was one of those games you remembered and thought back on "Oh yeah that was a great game" and then went on with your day. Memorable but not so much that you went to go pick it up again you know what I mean?

Super Motherload
To be honest I didn't even know this game existed until it showed up as a featured sale item. I did not purchase this game at full price and honestly I can't recommend anyone to do so. This version really only waters down the original and while the new powers are interesting the fact that the map is the same everytime means you will never be able to afford them. All the characters with unique abilities are also neat, but don't add enough to the game to make you want to try them all.

While I understand the want to add a "story" to the game I feel that Motherload really didn't need it. I think it stems more from the fact they couldn't leave the final boss as SATAN HIMSELF due to obvious reasons. Thus they had to find a "new" final boss and therefore had to create a story to explain it all. Personally I think THE LITERAL DEVIL hanging out on Mars and exploiting humans for profit was pretty amazing. But keep in mind the original was made before "PC culture" even existed so they could get away with that. Big Bird with a pirate hat does not cut it in my book.

Also on a side note: While I did enjoy the final boss fight I feel that it should have had a sequence at the core before the surface race began. You two duke it out and then have to escape the rising magma and the destruction of the planet is due to your climatic battle for the planet. The whole Death Star laser was just in bad taste I think.


  • Decent voice acting
  • Fun special abilities
  • Co-op
  • Still addicting gameplay
  • Interesting final boss

  • Progression is much more streamlined and oversimplified
  • Upgrades cost WAY too much
  • The map is the same every time. No random generating
  • Story is uninteresting
  • Insane volumes of the same 2 hazards = "difficulty"

Not worth it for full price.
Get it on sale and its a great purchase. Besides it comes with the Goldium Edition of the original so if you hate the new one you can live it up with the classic.

Super Motherload is a game in which you mine resources balance cargo, fuel and upgrades. Throughout you have a storyline forming in with rescue missions from far below the planet Mars. It is a very fun and addictive puzzle game, where you have to figure out how to get to different locked ores and progress downward to see what is below. I am creating a video series on this game if you want to see actual gameplay then take a look and see what fun awaits!

Super Motherload es un juego de rol desarrollado por XGen, y secuela del enormemente exitoso "Motherload".

*Contiene Spoilers de los primeros 5 minutos del juego*

Argumento: El argumento y la mecánica es similar al original, eres llevado a la superficie de Marte como parte de un equipo multidisciplinario. Tu misión es recoger los minerales que se encuentren debajo de la superficie marciana, utilizando para ello un vehículo excavador equipado con una enorme perforadora.

A medida que logres excavar más profundo, los minerales encontrados serán de mayor valor, pero las amenazas se volverán también más comunes. Deberás cumplir tu misión de recolección teniendo siempre en cuenta que el riesgo de morir aumenta gradualmente a medida que te acercas al núcleo del planeta, ya sea por falta de combustible, destrucción por lava, o excesivo daño por impactos.

Para desarrollar tu tarea en forma óptima, podrás ir realizando mejoras a tu vehículo, todas aquellas que te permitirán enfrentarte a los nuevos desafíos que surjan de la exploración.

Sin embargo el argumento del juego no se acaba aquí. No tardarás en encontrar que no estás solo en el planeta, y que la misión de excavación podría tener otros objetivos diferentes a los declarados. La trama va adquiriendo un matiz sobrenatural y conspiracionista.

Características: Super Motherload representa una satisfactoria evolución para con respecto al título original. Es una versión perfeccionada en todo sentido, pero siguiendo su propio camino e inspiración individual. No es una secuela que se aleje tanto del original como para que sea un producto indeseado, ni tampoco es tan fiel al primero como para convertirse en una compra inútil. Es el perfecto equilibrio entre fidelidad y originalidad.

Super Motherload representa una versión más madura y oscura de Motherload. Es un juego que te obliga a interactuar emocionalmente con él, te exhorta a tomar decisiones éticas y a pensar cómo resolver los puzles que vayan surgiendo. Este nuevo título cuenta con voces de doblaje, excelente música, mejores gráficos, y un argumento más elaborado.

Puntos positivos:
(1) Excelente argumento
(2) Excelente banda sonora
(3) Pluralidad de personajes
(4) Soporta sistema cooperativo local de hasta 4 jugadores
(5) Incluye Motherload Goldium (versión premium del juego original) gratuitamente
(6) Logros y cromos

Puntos negativos:
(1) Ocasionales crash
(2) Jugadores que han jugado el original podrían encontrarse que este juego no alcanza sus expectativas (no fue mi caso)

Mi recomendación:
Si no has jugado el original y te ha cautivado el argumento leído ¡cómpralo!
Si ya has jugado el original y te gustó el primero, no podrás estar sin jugar su secuela ¡cómpralo!

con teclado y raton jugar a esto es peor que te saquen una muela sin anestesia. Tengo mandos de la xbox pero no me da la gana usarlo para este juego.
El juego o PORT esta muy mal hecho ( o inexistente). Ningun sacacuartos me va a olbligar a usarlo. Si eres un tontobabas del mando igual te gusta. A mi me ha rallado la cabeza y el control cuando no responde pone de muy mala hostia. Me cabrean mucho estos juegos de consola vendidos en pc tal cual. Cuando el usuario de consola y de pc son años luz diferentes

i remember playing the original motherload back in the day and enjoying the heck out of it. i remember enjoying the progression of upgrading my little drillbot, the feeling of discovery and exploration, and the true fear i felt when i was low on fuel flying up to the surface.

super motherload fails to entice me in any way, and it fails to build on what made the original motherload fun. i dont feel fear any more because when you run out of fuel you just move slower instead of dying. i dont enjoy upgrading my vehicle because the game stops you from doing so until you arbitrarily reach a new chunk of story (story which i also find really tedious and boring). and i dont get much joy from exploration in super motherload. everything is more or less the same, there arent any novelty ores to discover, there aren't many ancient artifacts or items to find (unless they are pertinant to the story, again, i dont care) and the puzzles are kind of bland and rudimentary.

so what am i left with? well most of what i feel when i play super motherload is boredom. i just want to dig to the next area, increase my fuel tank because it's ALWAYS running out, get some OP combination of gems so i can... i dunno upgrade my fuel tank some more. there's no excitement, there's no surprises.

i was looking forward to this game, i'm pretty dissapointed honestly.

As one who have played the original flash game for more hours than I dare admit, naturally I have been hype for this game since I came across it when it first got on greenlight and was very excited when I saw it pop up on the steam front page.

I was dissapointed, I got in the game and started digging, and the digging felt weigthless, the blocks just disappeared as with the old one you could see that you were digging through the blocks. And when I went to get upgrades there were no tooltips, no flavor text, only generic names and a set of boxes for each upgrade. It just felt empty.
Also the world feels too bright, this might just be an effect of playing on a high resolution, but it kind of ruins the atmosphere for me.

Other than that, They did a good job with the music and the fact that you can co-op (even though it's only local right now) is sure to be a big plus if you happen to have someone to play it with.

This saddens me, and I hope in the future they will do something to the game to make me want to give it another shot because it's such a good game and I know they can do better than this.

I played the original Flash version of this when I was younger, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Because of that experience, I went into this game with high hopes. Sadly, the game does not meet those expectations.

The digging feels weightless, blocks simply disappear with no animation. There are no novelty ores in the different layers of rock, the same ores are present through the entire game.

Deeper levels become tedious as there are ever-increasing amounts of hazard blocks that require bombs to blow through, and it is no longer possible to freely mine your own path through the dirt.

Upgrading the drillbot is not gratifying, many upgrades are gated by story progress, and there are no tooltips for most of the upgrades, making it impossible to see exactly how much you are improving.

The voice acting is decent, but the story is not interesting in the slightest, and the final boss fight is uninspired, and requires a copious amount of bombs to defeat.

I've played loads of Motherload since the original flash version, and been waiting for the release. I also backed it on KS(though it failed).
I was sad by the early PS4 release and later PC release on this game, but it worthed a wait.

You do the digging for resources, sell them and upgrade your digger. Deeper you go, richer resources found.
It contains more puzzles than the original, requiring you to plan your routes, and use of bombs(Dynamite, TNT, Shaft Bomb, etc) for better profit and faster progress.
If you dig resources in certain order(or combo), you get more profit. like "Platinum + Iron" = Rare Earth Magnet and is worth 2500, which is far more than those resources dug alone. These combos are unlocked with Smelter upgrades.
Be careful with terrains(landing/hitting hard will damage you) and fuels to stay alive. on death you'll lose collected minerals on that run(on normal, Hardcore sounds like a permadeath but haven't tried yet).
There are several characters and some unlockables have different stats than 4 main characters. Upgrades are saved on them except Radar upgrade which is tied to the world save. So, if you're stuck just go "New Game" with your previous character(You only lose radar upgrade but the world is renewed, so it won't be too hard to re-upgrade it).

I know it's in Early Acecss, but there's stuttering problem on my computer. Particles and stuffs are not too optimized yet it seems.

It has multiplayer, but LOCAL only. And the game is designed for local multiplayer(with shared screen and stuffs). If it really had online multiplayer, it would be instantly GOTY, <b>all the time</b> for me.

9/10, -1 from performance issues and no online multiplayer. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.

The Good:
- Dig, Sell, Upgrade. simple and fun.
- Still faithful to the original
- Good controls(with Xbox360 pad).
The Bad:
- Performance problem
- Radar could be bigger on singleplayer(or non-4 player games)



アップグレードはキャラクターごとに保存されるが、レーダーだけはワールドセーブに保存される。資源を採掘しつくすか詰んだ場合は「New Game」で前のキャラを使えば、レーダー以外のアップグレードはそのままでプレイできる(レーダーアップグレードもそこまで高くないので、すぐに買いなおせる)。




- 採掘・売却・アップグレード。わかりやすく楽しい。
- 前作の雰囲気とスタイルそのまま。
- 操作感良好(箱○パッドでプレイ)
- パフォーマンス問題
- レーダーもう少し大きくして欲しかった

Your adventure in Super Motherload begins as Employee 1001 - a miner working for the Solarus Corporation on Mars. Solarus is hungry for precious minerals, and it's your job retrieve them. Aided by Mister Fix-it (your AI partner), you descend deep into the planet's crust to find minerals to exchange for cash to upgrade your rig. Refueling, repairing, and buying upgrades are the main staples required to continue the descent into the unknown.

The further you dig, the more you begin to learn about the secrets of Mars and the strange occurrences happening throughout the various Solarus bases. Excerpts of video logs and sound bytes come through occasionally throughout the dig, and as a result you’re sometimes left with a fetch quest. The interruptions are interesting but brief however, allowing more time to do what you do best: dig.

Digging and refueling is a very simple gameplay mechanic, but despite the repetition the game is somewhat complex. Mostly, this is due to the fact that the deeper the dig, the more complicated the soil gets. For example, after hitting the third base I started to notice less open space and more metal plates blocking my path, forcing me to find a way around (or through) them to reach valuable gems.

The game ramps up its presentation as well, with more and more complicated systems. At first, the Motherload starts off with a smattering of minerals such as “bronzium” and “goldium” which are fairly easy to obtain. Soon enough, the treasures become more valuable deeper into the descent, from rubies all the way to “unobtanium.” Eventually, upgrades can be bought to automatically “smelt” minerals together which make interesting combinations like “katana gold.” Smelting adds a bit more variety to the mining gameplay, allowing for the crafting of bombs and forcing players to think more carefully about the order in which they collect minerals.

Gameplay isn't restricted to just "digging" though, as there are a number of different bombs that are made to blast through different types of elements, as well as some interestingly shaped bomb explosions to help navigate through barriers. For example, a “T” bomb will help blast the area directly above and one space to the left and right, creating said "T" shape. Some valuable minerals are trapped within rock or metal barriers that players must explode properly, without destroying the loot. I really enjoyed these short challenges but longed for a bit more complexity and variety as the same puzzles showed up over and over again.

Despite the repetition in bomb puzzles, maps are randomly generated upon each new game making it so you’ll never play the same map twice. Characters also have a different set of upgrade levels and abilities, making gameplay a bit different depending on which character you choose. For example, the unlockable character Laika is a ghost dog who doesn’t take any hull damage, and another extra character, Demitri, has unlimited electron bombs.

I also noticed that stations have different abilities and items for sale upon each new game - in one game I purchased an ability to turn magma into money but in another game I found the same station selling an ability that makes “ironium” turn into fuel. Some of the upgrades can feel like downgrades at first - like increasing the rotor speed is potentially dangerous as you can quickly damage your digger. However, once you get to the endgame these speed upgrades come in handy.

About three quarters into the game though, I found a lack of plot movement and an increased difficulty in navigating around blockades. Even after purchasing all possible upgrades for my character it still took quite some time to get to the end and I was not prepared for what I had to do next. After spending hours digging through Mars, the endgame delved into new mechanisms that took me by surprise. However frustrating, I found it rewarding to complete it in the end.

Local co-op is available, but to be honest I found it to be more stressful than playing alone. Players share a fuel tank, which means that fuel gets wasted a lot more easily so it’s a bit harder to progress. Everyone also shares a single screen - all players have to be in the same area for the game to function. If you leave your controller sitting for more than a few seconds, the game automatically removes your character from play. I can see how co-op could be fun with the right group of people, but I personally prefer the single-player experience.

And what a fantastic experience it is, despite its flaws. Super Motherload is simple enough so that anyone can pick it up and play, but complex enough for mining veterans to keep coming back to fully upgrade characters or even risk playing in hardcore mode. The sci-fi ’80s vibe is delightful and the perfect setting for this ridiculously addicting game. I find myself coming back to it at the end of every day, ready for a new adventure underground.
