MotherloadXGen Studios is behind this Flash game that is reminiscent of the old-school arcade games Dig Dug and Boulder Dash. Hired to mine the dangerous planet of Mars, you are given a robotic mining pod and sent off on a mission to bring home the Motherload, a fabled cache of rare and valuable minerals. Dig far below the surface of the Earth to earn money for upgrades and find treasure.

Control of the pod is with the [arrow] keys. Simply press the key in the direction you want to go. When refueling or buying upgrades at the shop, or accessing your inventory, use the mouse for selecting. There is an options screen where you can turn down the music volume, for the initial default setting is quite loud.

While the graphics are fair, the gameplay appears to be quite solid with lots of options and upgrades to outfit your pod. I was surprised at first to learn it was built in Flash, as it seems more like what I'm used to seeing in games built with Java. Still, a fine effort and plenty of gaming goodness packed in to enjoy.

The boss is rather easy to beat, just equip yourself with about 100 hull repair bots and 100 C4s. Then be careful not to be instantly killed and repair your hull each time it gets damaged.

For 2000 feet below ground and lower, just pack yourself with C4s and Dynomites. Use them to get around and only dig into the rocks. I've never died down there using that technique. My brother and I can beat Mr. Natas with barely over 100 C4s and 50 nanabots.

Lol, the first time I got to Mr. Natas, I was loaded with minerals and could barely fly (all best upgrades, and still), - a few feet in the air. I just went around for a while, unable to access inventory to throw off the extra weight, then teleported out.

It's an addictive game, but I found myself wishing for a number of features in the 1.x upgrade version.

1) When you save a game, save the underground MAP as well. It makes no sense that when you come back to a "saved" game, the mnieshaft you worked on is entirely gone. (THis is quite separate from the "earthquakes", which of course shake things up & destroy carefully laid mineshafts.)

2)It's annoying to jockey back and forth between the keyboard and the mouse. Make the existing keyboard shortcuts labelled & obvious, and for "yes/no" selections like "save game" and "dump this ore from inventory" and "buy this", make a keyboard shortcut.

3) Settle the obvious differences in art-quality. The main gameplay screen is moderately good lookin'; the "fill your tank with gas" screen is exquisite; the "incoming messages" and Natas incarnations are a weak stab at 3D. THe animation of the Natas incarnations is weak at best, and should be improved.

4) It's inconsistent, whether you can latch onto a smooth wall while hovering or slamming into it. This means you never know whether you can ram into a wall and set dynamite / C4 off. (It' makes sense that you can't use these things while hovering, but you ALSO can't use them while in freefall, and you CAN use them while successfully latched onto a smooth wall.)

5) Striking the ceiling & slamming hard into a dirt wall has no sound effect and causes no damage. That's 2 missed chances... I really enjoy, for example, running along a long horizontal surface and then launchign down a shaft & striking the far wall hard... but there're no repercussions nor sounds when this happens.

6) When you "upgrade" your equipment, the craft still looks the same. No different-colored hull, no different sounds, no different smoke patterns. That's a missed chance at some real entertainment. Likewise, when your hull's damaged, it'd be fun to actually SEE some bent fenders HEAR some lame engine wheezing & whatnot. Heck, I'd damage my craft just to hear the interesting sounds.

7) Takes too darned long to finish the game. At several points, I almost quit because it was just same-sh*t-different-depth.

8) LONELY. No pets, no 2-player version, no wild critters roaming the mineshafts like Pacman ghosts. MIssed chance at some excitement, there.

9) When you drop ore out of your inventory, it doesn't GO anywhere. This makes no sense. It'd be fun & add a layer of gameplay complexity, to see the dropped ore actually appear in the mine and clog the mineshaft.

10) Add language choices. If you need help doing this game in Japanese, let me know. :-)

This game is so addictive, but just takes forever to beat. I didn't realize there was a boss until I finally dug all the way to the right side at the bottom and discovered the hole there. Once I found it, the two bosses were really easy to beat w/ explosives and a lot of nanobots.

easy win:

go slow, get just enough money to get each lvl of upgrades, then once u have all upgrades pack 250 c4, 1 matter transporter (or quantum doesnt really matter), 300 nanobots and DIG!

once ur depth meter starts going crazy, that means u are close to the boss hes easy as long as you brought the necessary items sit next to him and lay c4 after c4 after c4 making sure u use nanobots.
HE HAS TWO FORMS, BE CAREFUL
first form has 1000 hp and second has 2000.

or if ur a cheater here:
to activate: click options and just type exactly what is below:

blingbling - adds $100000 to cash (two blings as opposed to the code mentioned before)
penetrable - hull strength + 1
digdug - drill strength + 1(only goes up 1 lvl opposed to auto amazonite as mentioned before)
warp9 - engine strength + 1
guzzle - fuel tank size + 1
toocool - radiator strength + 1
supersize - bay size + 1
fillerup - refill fuel

and the uber code: drumroll plz

ntouchable - every top upgrade, 99 of everyextra item (c4, dynamite, matter transporter, ect.) and a special core teleporter that takes u right to Natas (press "0" to use) quite a useful code if i do say so myself.

thats about all u need to know for this game.

i beat the game in honestly 20 minutes, all you do is just drill a straight hole down and blow up anything like rocks or lava in your way, until you get like 4,000 feet, then you blow up anything you have to drill through except minerals because the risk of natural gas spots, then when you're about to reach the boss go and load up with hull repair and c4, then just blow up the c4 right next to the boss and it's lights out for satan

REALLY GOOD GAME. id say mr natis is pretty hard to beat but not as hard as sum other games. the trik is to dig a direct hole to the core (6666ft) and youll meet the boss dude, who is satin (natis). if you are stumped type ntouchable in the settings menu and a bling noise will happen. after you do that, go fill up ur tank and hull. then dig to 6666 ft and fight him. the cheat will giv u max everything. you can drive through gas pockets if you have max hull and nano bots.

The easiest way to win is go slow, then build a straight shaft down after you upgrade fuel tank. Remember where you left off and drop right down the shaft to that point. Buy extra fuel tanks. When you get down to the gas pockets make sure you have one of the best two hulls and radiators try to by c4 or dynamite and only dig through squares with minerals in them. If you dig only minerals and blow up places where you can't dig through minerals, gas pockets can't blow you up. Also, to get to natas, when you get to the bottom and can't dig, go all the way right. Make sure you have LOTS of C4, Dynamite and NanoBots, if you have gotten that far one or two amazonites is enough to buy all the C4 and dynamite you need. It's really easy, but REALLY long.

When you beat Mr. Natas, which are two bosses, you get some extra money and some extra points, then in the end the cash also turns into points, making you having billions of points, then you start from the zero cash (but still all the points), you win Satan's Head (in the inventory) you can't sell it, it's just to see how many times you won, now selling minerals is harder (they are half the value omg!) when you have 2 heads, it's divided by 3 OMFG I have 2 heads :)

Ok, heres how u survive gas pockets with THE weakest hull and radiator:
-Buy 25+ dynamite, (not plastic explosives, they're more exppensive nd hard to use).
after you encounter your first gas pocket (which u will probly die instanly from) start using only dynamite to destroy dirt, you dont need to drill anymore.
-MINERALS DO NOT CONTAIN GAS POCKETS!
using dynamite may sound expensive, but remember : one ruby is 10 dynamites, one diamond is 50 (the screen will be packed with diamonds lower than 5000-6000 feet)
-Near the very bottom of the game (where Satan is) you will find amazonite, worth half a mill which is enough to upgrade one part to the max. You can get 20 amazonites without having to return to the surface when you're near the very bottom.

To get to the boss

simply buy the best hull, fuel and drill, and about 50 nanobots and 100 dynamites/C4. When you go through gas, heal yourself, when you see lava and rocks, blow them up. As you about to reach the boss, there will be alot of rocks and lava, BLOW ALL THE WAY DOWN! this means you won't be hurt by gas. When you reach a floor you can't drill through, go back to the top. Now buy 100-150 nanbots and C4s (dynamite don't harm him). Now go back down and drillto the left or right edge of the map, go through the hole at the side. Kill the first form by using C4 and repairing yourself, then rinse and repeat for the second form. EASY!

To those who can't beat/damage the boss July 29, 2009 7:00 PM

-make sure that every part of your mining ship is completely upgraded.

-Go to the equipment shop and buy...
-300 plastic explosives
-100 dynamite
-150 nanobot repairers
-25 fuel tanks
-Then go to the bottom and DON'T PICK UP ANYTHING, EVEN AMAZONITE, as it will keep you from flying if you pick up too much.
-Attack the boss by waiting until he is done with attack and then flying close to his feet and detonating plastic explosives. After detonating, fly away and use repairers or fuel tanks if necessary.
-That's it, you're done.

I've beaten the game 3 times. What you first need is better fuel tank and better drill. Then, keep digging in a strait line. Once you hit rocks, either blow them up with dynamite or if you don't have money, dig around the rocks, continue in a strait line under the rock, memorize where the first rock is in feet, and slow down when you reach 100 feet above, and then blow it up with dynamite. Once you reach blue zone, you should first get best fuel and best hull. The get best drill and best cargo bay. Then get best engine and get the Tri-Turbine Freon Array. When you get money after that, buy fuel reserves and hull repair nanobots. When you are rich, buy 100 fuel reserves, 200 plastic explosives, 5 matter transmitters, and 100 dynamite. Do not get quantum teleporters! If you have low hull, these teleporters will kill you! Once you get to 5500, start blowing up your way through the ground. Once you reach ??????? zone, then get ready to meet your boss. I kinda knew he was evil. If you looked at him carefully, you'd see some key factors. above all, red eyes. That tipped me off. Once he said "turn back of you will be terminated... that is, fired!", I knew he was evil.

to everyone who doesn't understand this:

LEVELS AND NUMBER OF TIMES YOU BEAT THE GAME ARE DIFFERENT

Number of times you beat the game is after you beat it, then go start a NEW GAME

Levels are
after you beat satan/natas and haven't cheated you can save the game, then when you load the game again you start at the well start... except there's 2 catches, 1) you get no money to start but full fuel (better go get an ore fast ;)) and 2) EVERYTHING GIVES YOU HALF MONEY, so amonzite which normally gives you $500,000 gives you $250,000, diamonds which normally give you $100,000 give you $50,000.

I have beaten the game twice now and I'm on level 3, it starts getting harder although level 3 is still beatable,

now to you people saying you are on level 17 or level 21 you are complete idiots, do you really expect us to believe you are beating the game when amonzite gives you only like $2-$30?!

To type in cheats, go to the options button and type the code in. Miniclip version has no cheats. You can't save if you cheat, though!

Gas pockets are fatal without the top 2 hulls.

I won with at least 100 plastic explosives and repairbots. You can have dynamite, but I didn't use them on him.

When you can't drill any farther, go all the way to the right and drill.

Hope I helped :) Motherload ftw!

I found 3 secret items (upgrades) you can find after about 2,500 feet, usually around 5,000 or deeper:

1. Some blue looking startrek engine, think its called an Ancient Warp Drive (gives unlimited matter transmitter ability, you don't end up using any more transmitters if you have them)
2. Some blue looking scroll (gives ability to convert magma pockets into $$$, but still hurts when you hit them)
3. Some greenish looking containers that you can easily mistake for a martian corpse (gives you ability to convert gas pockets into fuel)

After you dig past 500 or maybe 1,000 feet, if you go back to the surface and to the far right, you'll see a small martian spaceship, go to it and it will give you the ability to convert some (not all) dirt blocks into money (oil for the martians), the deeper you go the more they are worth.

Here's a good strategy for any level your up to:

- dig down to 500 feet ASAP
- go to the martians on the far right on the surface
- then once you have the cash upgrade your fuel
and engine
- then take a trip to 5,000 feet (in the air)
- refuel and save
- load again and go back up to 5,000 feet again

'God is so generous, giving you money every time
you load again'

Pretty addictive game, though the Satan should be way harder to beat, I mean, the master of all evil killed by a few bombs? Geez.....

Anyways, heres a good cheat:

untouchable

type that in the options page(just type it, no text bar) and press enter. You`ll hear a wierd sound. Exit, and you`ll see your fuel is critical, and so is your hull. Keep pressing r and f to put them back to normal. Press 0 to skip down all the way to the bottom, and keep using plastic explosives(press c) on him, and don`t forget to use repair.

And to whoever said this, after you beat the game you have to start all over again, except for one thing: You have a 'Satan's Head' in your inventory. I'm not sure if it does something, but it is quite interesting.

To beat the boss you must use plastic explosives (or dynamite) and a lot of it. Be sure to upgrade your pod entirely and stock up as much as you can on the explosives, repair, and fuel just in case. They're are two levels of the boss. I have only beaten the 1st and the 2nd is much harder. Good luck!

To Beat Natas (Satan):

First, dig to -66666, which is the core. You will meet Natas and he will try to kill you. You need explosives, so stock up on that and nano-repair bots.
Secondly, you need full fuel and full hull upgrade.
Then you are ready to beat Natas, who has two forms.
For you cheaters-
Type in 'ntouchable' on the options screen. No space? just type it...you will here a small 'ding'. You will have 99 of every item, you will have full upgrades, and you get a 'Core Transmitter'. This will allow you to transport directly to the core. (press 0 to use)
You will be unable to save when you use this code, so try by yourself, and if you still can't do it, then use the code.

So, in order to not hit gas pockets and explode, at all, you just have to keep using your c4 in every empty hole that doesn't have a mineral? Or if you hit them while you have the best hull and some nanobots, will you live?

The trick to getting down to Satan is to drill down to where it's impossible to drill anymore, staring to the right of the fuel station. then go right, blowing everything up until you get to a small hole. drop down in there and you can fight satan (note: I would buy at least 200 C4 first.)

I've gotten to the end. At the end there is a wall of rocks. You go to the far right to find a hole in the wall of rocks. This hole leads to a huge cavern where you have to attack the devil, so if you think you're nearing the end pack a lot of repair nanobots and explosives. If you beat him, It adds up all your money, plus extra money from selling body parts from the devil.

The boss comes at "6666" deep, all you need is somewhere around 100 plastic, 10 fuel refill and 20-50 nanorepair. I recommend to get all 100 except plastic those get 500. After the "first" boss is defeated there comes another dog like thing.

TO ALL OF THOSE WHO CAN'T FIND MR. NATAS:

As you may have noticed, as you get deeper, the gravity gets stronger and the ground becomes harder to drill through. When Mr. Natas tells you to turn back, you can't even go up unless you have an über engine from cheats or you have a teleporter (don't use it; the gravity will remain the same it was below ground on the surface). After going down far, you will get a a red boundary made of what looks like skeletons. Blow it up with explosives, then you will descend to fight Mr. Natas-I hope you have lots of nanobots, fuel add-ons, and large explosives, because you will need them. After defeating him, you find the motherload, get new items in your inventory (notably "Satan's Head"). You did it!
