I was bored again today, but this time went in search of some flash games that I could play. I went to Miniclip and found Motherload which I thought was rather fun, it had been made by XGen Studios, so I visited their website and found the game on that. When you play on XGen, it gives you the opportunity to create an account and save your game, Miniclip also gave you the choice to save your game, but it would be saved as data on your PC, which would be deleted after a certain amount of time.
On XGen however, your data is stored on a server, which can be accessed at any time, this should prevent data loss and make the game more fun to play. Also XGen has the latest version of the game which is allot more advanced.
Gameplay: The aim of the game is to control your pod to dig underground for minerals, then sell the minerals for money which you can spend on pod upgrades, such as faster engines, larger fuel tanks, larger cargo bays and better drills. This in turn makes it easier to retrieve the minerals and get more money.
If you too would like to play the game then visit: http://www.xgenstudios.com/play/motherload
