Recensies

“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.”
- – Tycho, Penny Arcade

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.

A lot of people compare this version to the original flash version, and they don't seem that impressed. I never played the original, so I can only judge this game for what it is, and all I can say it's that these were the best 11€ I ever spent on a game.
It's fun and extremely addictive. It's one of those games with simple mechanics, very intuitive, well designed that just gets the player in that "zone" were time flies in an instant.
The "story" fits well in the gameplay, and it manages to be engaging without being too pervasive.
Definitely recommend!

Great game!
I feel its even better than the original however, like almost anything, there are downsides.
The multiplayer is local co-op, no option. Thats not too bad, plenty of games function fine local like Magicka and Gauntlet. I feel Super Motherload behaves the same in that aspect, especially with controllers (Plays best with gamepad, Comrade!). The game also seems to lack in content to me but thats remedied by the high replay value. Honestly, thats the only real downside I see and I feel they can easily make it online multiplayer and may even be planning on it.
Many complain about the game being too easy and actively ignore hardcore mode or complain about the storyline and how its different from the original. Of course it is, they don't want it to get stale.
The graphics are improved of course and I LOVE how it has clever little puzzles that you can solve with different bombs. Nothing feels better that getting a Universe Chain of unobtainium.
My brother liked the smelter, I didn't care for it too much.
The transmission cutscenes are fully voiced and I absolutely loved that.
Honestly, this is one of those games where if you like this type of game but you don't like Super Motherload, its your own damn fault. Many complain about broken textures or black screen and say the GAME is bad for that. Don't listen to them.
Great game, great music, great graphics, great replay value, can't really ask for more in a game.

BONUS: It comes WITH the original Motherload Goldium edition as well for the nostalgia. Cool.

I've enjoyed Motherload for years, and when I heard this came out, I bought it instantly. This game lives up to its predecessor, and even if it is quite repetetive, the great soundtrack, artwork & storyline completely make up for it. I recommend this game to absolutely anyone. As a side note, I recommend oldschool players of Motherload to take the Hardcore mode of the game, since that is how it was originally supposed to be played.
