Ok, here is a remake of the famouse Xgen Studios flash game, Motherload. U are a martian explorer whose job is to mine minerals and upgrade yo ship. All the controls are explained on the start page.

I might help you. How big is your game? I need some room for mine too, I plan to pay for a dedicated server. Good luck.

It is very small. I can put it on my website. Prepare a webpage to explain what it is and I have still 80 MB available.

Very nice, in some ways less frustrating because of the additional status bars (especially inventory!) and of the lack of momentum... but all the same I'd kinda like to see the latter restored to the game for a more "realistic" experience, if you think you could try it. It's probably not that hard to do if you just think about it.

Also, I hate to complain, but what happened to sideways drilling? This is a pretty big gameplay aspect, and I don't think you should take it out. I hope this wasn't intentional, just a lack of time to complete thing? You should get that in or the game isn't near as much fun.

Well i think it says on the start page that you need to press "Space" to dig sideways...
And what i meant by saying i needed help on getting the game on the internet is that i want instuctions how to do it by myself. So far my attempts have been unsuccessfull. I tried posting it on google pages, but i get that cross in upper left corner. This game is not quiet finished so i want to be able to post new versions without bothering nobody...

Ooh, d'oh, guess I missed that out of the list somehow. Or my brain wasn't expecting that to be something necessary, and never really looked for it. Is there a reason you changed horizontal movement to a key-restricted function?

Game is looking much better now  Smiley

well, in the original, u often ram into a wall and start digging when u really didnt mean to. This kinda eliminates it and makes digging more "professional". It also completely separates digging and moving.

Still need help on the instructions...
