Under rating threshold (show) if you have smaller iron you can make larger iron using the "show all" in the cargo bay, if you have researched how to make it

Under rating threshold (show) Damn you Okbmd! I've been up 'til 3am every night this weekend! Seriously, I'm enjoying the heck out of this game. The top 5 commenters already said my own opinion. The only change I would like to see is if the artifacts would be found in order instead of randomly. This would make the videos make more sense, and easier to craft mid-level items.

Under rating threshold (show) That button for automatically crafting the second tier of parts (if you have the resources) would be great. But the game is totally amazing, its been really fun *Also heads up to newbies: when you get the recipes for "bunch of screws", "series of pipes", and "wireless wires" -make a crap-ton, like at least 50 when you can. you get to make fancy stuff but if you don't there'll be alot of backtracking and object splitting

Under rating threshold (show) very well made game, but a bit time consuming. Not that its bad, i just didn't see a save function so i was afraid that if i closed the tab i'd lose my hours of work. You even set it up to where you can make a sequel should you so choose. I'd love to see a sequel of this.

Under rating threshold (show) good work on making sure people dont just target to dig deeper like motherload, the most useful ressource are all over the place... i had expected to need to farm titanium and gold on the final stretch, and i ended up with a lot of extra ( i mean, like 50 sizeable chunks of each, 400 obsidian, 200+ of each large crystals, and i made too many gemstones anyway) , aberrant and strange gloops i was expecting to need more of them.... and in the end, there was no words to describe the sheer insanity of the need for iron , and this is considering i had taken Hotshot2k4 comment into account... my hint to anyone out there playing, mid-game, dont spend your bonus time on doubling your titanium spend it on doubling the iron., ice planets are great to dig deeper and get higher grade capsules, but spend some time on volcanics too, you'll need the metal.

Under rating threshold (show) This game has amazing balance and depth! The scaling of resources expended and harvested and the complexity of items makes this game worthy of a 5/5. This is a very fun game similar to motherload :)

Under rating threshold (show) As mining games go, it's average. Better than usual storyline though, I'll give it that. Crafting UI needs to be improved, badly... can hardly tell what's going on with it at any given moment.

Under rating threshold (show) Why can't there be a script added to the game that auto saves it even after you log out? you can ask the creator of backyard monsters for it. I want the script to be added because my computer has a device that makes it start out "fresh" so then no viruses can get it but it also delets the data befure the device was added so i got realy disapointed when i made 5 of the modles and i had the enginering cargo bay left.

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game so much. In my opinion this game is as close to perfect as can be. Other mining games give only an hour or two of gameplay, but this game gives much more. There are story elements that you uncover as you go, but you are not required to watch them, and i like that because i concentrate on playing the game more than the story. The game is a perfect use of resource management mixed with RPG. The upgrades are great, and just when i think i'm invincible and i can go wherever i want, i have to pull an emergency teleport to escape environmental overheating. This game is on the top of my list of all time favorites along with Legend of Zelda, Anti-Idle: The Game, and Final Fantasy X. Awesome game

Under rating threshold (show) Loved the game, definitely a 5/5. I see a lot of complaining about the crafting system and at times it found it pretty annoying myself, but let's look at it this way: resources are infinite, time is infinite and lives are infinite, then where is the challenge? The slow process of crafting components to components to components of an upgrade might just be it :). A back button would be nice though. Like if you are in a recipe and you miss a component you click it, go in it, craft it and then click back to get to the previous recipe. That aside I greatly enjoyed the story...the "humanity" of that little astro-bot is unbelievable :)

Under rating threshold (show) oh, and for those of you struggling to get gold or titanium becuase you can't survive the temperatures: go to an ice planet. There won't be a lot of it, but there will be enough to complete the cooling system. You can also get deeper artifacts more quickly this way.

Under rating threshold (show) AMAZING, Great Game! Fun, engrossing, fantastic. - I like the crafting system and the mechanics. The sounds/music need a touch of work, and the lifter pod effect needs to be blocked under the ship (occasionally you can't refuel due to floating off the fuel/repair depot). I am looking forward to the ocean-sequel! + FOR SEQUEL!

Under rating threshold (show) This is the best mining game I have ever played. I like how the goal is present, but you are not necessarily pushed to reach it. You don't even need to play for a long time to enjoy it-you can just go on for a brief time, mine a few things, maybe craft something, and quit. It is also good how you can set goals for yourself. 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Just finished the game. The fact that i spent the whole game struggling to expand my cargo bay, but didn't know the items i needed, and that repairing my vehicle with raw ore was a more practical solution than upgrading my hull, aswell as a kinda slow way to upgrade stuff, and waaaay too easy to get teleporters, makes this game lose their 5 stars. also i didn't know why or how i won. i just did. But 4 stars for entertainment :)

Under rating threshold (show) Amazing game! I loved motherload, and this was similar, but much more complex and better. A couple bad spots were only being able to jump 2 squares, and upgrades taking FOREVER! I didn't even want to finish the upgrades at the end because they would take so long.
