MotherLoad is more than it seems. A game about digging doesn’t sound that great, but there is something special about MotherLoad. My first few times with the game I exploded because I ran out of fuel. The game specifically reminds you to refuel but it was still kind of surprising with how fast it runs out. This really makes it important to focus while taking small trips underground and then back to the surface. These small trips is the first motivator towards upgrading your digging machine. As you collect minerals you can sell them to purchase a bigger fuel tank and other upgrades. These upgrades will all be needed to reach further and further underground. There really isn’t much more of a point to the game than that, but it is surprisingly fun and worth a play to kill some time and boredom.
