По сравнению с той же SteamWorld Dig, в непродуманности оружия и способностей Super Motherload не обвинишь, ведь их нет вообще, за исключением пары сверхдорогих и не слишком полезных апгрейдов. Уж лучше на те же деньги накупить одноразовых телепортов — нервы целее будут.
Super Motherload is simple enough so that anyone can pick it up and play, but complex enough for mining veterans to keep coming back to fully upgrade characters or even risk playing in hardcore mode. The sci-fi ’80s vibe is delightful and the perfect setting for this ridiculously addicting game.
Without online co-op, Super Motherload falls a bit short of gaming greatness, but the marriage of entrancing sound and gameplay is still a fun experience.
Super Motherload is a game that will appeal to casual gamers and hardcore gamers alike. Solving the puzzles and blasting your way deep into the heart of Mars is entertaining, despite it feeling somewhat repetitive at times. Throw in a few friends and the formula definitely comes alive, though, making this something of an unpolished gem.
Super Motherload's premise of digging for richs on a lonely planet sounds about as boring as actually digging for richs on a lonely planet. But stick with it long enough, and you'll find an eerily soothing adventure with addictive strategy elements that make for a wholly enjoyable next-gen gaming experience.
As you can tell, Super Motherload is not a particularly exciting game, unless you have a real passion for digging. And digging and digging and digging.
