i thought id post one:

http://www.miniclip.com/games/motherload/en/

this is seriously the most addicting game ive played yet. ive been playing for more than 2 hours, and have a bunch of the highest upgrades etc. ive been sub 6000 feet (extremely dangerous, you hit gas pockets and explode, and have to start where you last saved unless you have nice radiators and hulls). by the way, if you die, and reload from last save, it doesnt save your tunnels, so be careful.

have fun!

yeah, someone needs to take this game away from me, ive been playing for 3 and a half hours, and ive maxed out my buggy thing and have over 10 million dollars. plus, ive reached the end of the world, and can survive underground almost indefinately, even when all of the non-mineral drill spots are gas pockets.

notice how the world ends right there.

This is sooo addicting..I've drilled almost 1500 feet down and I have a rediculously upgraded pod thingy.

damn you moo......I've been playing for 6 hours@!!!

6 hours and you're not done yet!? 3.5 hours got me a fully upgraded pod and basically unlimited money.

the trick is: dont go below 5000 feet until you have the second best radiator and the second best hull. dont go below 6000 with that though. once you get the best of both, go below 6000 and harvest all the amazonite.

hint: the stuff in the repair shop is EXTREMELY useful. stock up on extra fuel, dynomite, and hull repair droid things. also buy a couple teleporters, you dont want to have to navigate back up. if you have enough of those things, you can stay down there almost indefinately until your cargo bay is full.

it is also ideal to have a strait path down so you dont have to navigate paths all over the place. this can be tough to achieve because of rocks, lava, etc (once you get down real deep), but as long as you have dynomite you its possible. then, after you harvest, you can just jump down the hole and get to where you were easily.

durrell
07-16-2006, 08:43 AM
I did the straight path down and I had like almost every upgrade up to the 100k's..

Edit..had like a 7million+ score with all except the 500k upgrades and I had like 400k in the bank then I hit a gas pocket :( :( :(

well getting money is the entire game, so if getting money is the hard part, then you're saying the game is hard.

actually it isnt hard, but its time consuming.


and yeah, gas pockets can be tough. thats why i reccommended that you dont go below 5000 until you have the best radiator and hull.

It's impossible to beat it in 2.5 hours unless youve played it before and I dont think you can beat it. It just goes on and on.

it doesnt go on and on, you can reach a maximum depth. and if you make it that far, you have pretty much unlimited money at that point.

if you buy a teleporter, can you use it over and over again, or is it a one time thing?

colonel_moo
07-16-2006, 01:12 PM
one time thing.

I had everything up to the 500's again and I was down to the 6000 level where the amazonite is and I hit 2 gas pockets..I would've had like a million dollars in my cargo bay alone :(

you have to buy teh repair drone things, so if you hit a gas pocket you can repair yourself. down where the amazonite is, almost everysquare that isnt a mineral is a pocket.

How do you load a game? I lost when I left the game for ~30 mins and my fuel al dissappeared, I don wanna start over, but I can't see alot of the uttons because I'm using flash 7 instead of 8.

i have a whole from just below the surface to -1500 ft. i dug it all, its alot easier to get back up when there is nothing blocking you

marvin-martian
07-16-2006, 04:42 PM
im bad at this game. i get too greedy when im down around 1600 feet, and i run out of gas on the fly up and die.

lol save often. i never get over 4000 in points without saving... but yeah i know what you mean, i did this single bore tunnel down to like 2k and saw all sorts of goodies and made it to the gas station with "fuel critical" the tank had like a puddle at most.

i try to forget about the 25gal backup so i dont use it and not go to the surface... i need that teleporter... anyone use one? is it 1 time only? and do you have to use tnt to get though rocks?

timmyshoota
07-16-2006, 07:33 PM
I've used the quantum teleporter twice now, its just a one time only thing. First time I took damage, second time when I appeared I went up so I didn't get any damage. I'm getting down to the 4000ft area. Fun game, but I lag a lot for some reason. I've started buying the teleporters and just using those to get back to the surface instead of flying.

MatthewTheTheif
07-16-2006, 07:39 PM
you guys...

there definately IS an end to this game...

ive beaten it before...

you'll know when you beat it...just see how far the rabbit hole really goes...(copyright "The Matrix")

colonel_moo
07-16-2006, 08:04 PM
teleporters are extremely useful, especially if you dont have a strait tunnel. you never really have to worry about fuel. once you get down deep enough to find the rare stuff (ruby, diamond, amazonite, etc) the 2000 is really barely anything compared to what you make.

matthew, i dont see how there could be an end... maybe if you harvested every single mineral you'd win, but im not about to find out if thats true. i got to the bottom, and was taking back 15+ amazonites and 25+ diamonds every trip, and saw no end. you cant blast through the bottom either.

marvin-martian
07-16-2006, 08:19 PM
has anyone else gotten stuck inbetween the edge of the screen and undrilled dirt? i cant fly out, blow up everything around me, or teleport up. its going to make me run out of gas and die. omg.

drill to the right or left if you can and it should fix the glitch... i lost a half of the 5000 dollar tank on that glitch.

Is there a way to pause when your below the surface? Because I keep having to leave temporarily and losing my game, because it takes too long to get all the way up to the surface when your 1300 feet down, and your engine is the 750$ one...

Hob Hayward

Is that in referance to the rocks? I thought you couldn't destroy them...


Edit: Crap, I got too greedy and blew myself up, what do the three things on the main menu say, because I can see them, and I really would like to reload if I can, because I did have 2nd best of everything... and was 5600 feet down whenI died...

if you actually saved, you can load the game (second button down on main menu) but it doesnt save your tunnel, you have to start drilling from the top again. if you didnt save, you're outta luck.

and you can blow up rocks using dynamite or plastic explosives.

are plastic explosives worth it? ive just been using dynamite.

I finnalt beat it... I had to jump back up to the surface when it looked grim on the second devil, I restocked (150 nanobots, 100 c4) and went back down my straight tunnel to is lair. It took several minutes to freefall that far....

NB_Hacker_NB
07-18-2006, 07:13 PM
Someone help! The last radio message I recieved said, "Turn back now or you will be terminated...er...as in fired!" Im at the very bottom where someone said the world ends. I have used c4 on the whole bottom and tried to drill through and it hasn't worked. I have all the upgrades and haven't even fought a devil yet. HELP! Edit-Damn that 2nd devil was hard.

No, no. You misunderstood. I use the transporter, but I mean if you wanna go back up a tunnel you just went down - to maybe hit another area. That kind of travel.
