Motherload is a popular Flash game released in 2004 by XGen Studios. In the game, the player controls a mining robot that digs underground for minerals and ores.

How to play Motherload

When the game loads, click on "New Game" to start a new game or "Continue" to pick up from where you left off in a saved game. Shop around on the surface and then start digging downwards to mine minerals and ores, collecting them by moving your robot over them or by digging them up with your drill. Sell all the collected minerals and ores for money, which you can then use to upgrade your mining robot's abilities, such as increasing fuel capacity or drill speed. Make sure to watch out for hazards such as lava and rocks that can damage your robot and deplete your fuel reserves! Use your radar and other tools you can get your hands on to locate new veins of minerals and ores to mine even deeper underground.

Reach the bottom of the map to complete the game, just don't explode before you get there!
