[[caption-width-right:307:[[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Digging tunnels, day after day. That's my job.]]]]''[[http://www.miniclip.com/games/motherload/en/ Motherload]]'' is a flash game developed by [=XGen=] Studios in 2004. The game takes place on Mars [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture sometime in the future]] in a small martian mining outpost. The player controls a lone [[DrillTank mining pod]] and is tasked to drill underneath the planet's surface in search of valuable ores. The gameplay is based on the mechanics of ''VideoGame/DigDug'', except that there are no [[{{Mooks}} Pookas and Fygars]] to be seen under the surface--the entire challenge of the game comes solely from navigating the hazardous Martian sub terrain for ore and hauling it to the surface alive with the mining pod intact and without running out of fuel. As the miner reaches deeper under the Martian surface, [[ApocalypticLog various clues and transmissions]] begin to hint at something [[DarkSecret larger and more sinister going on]], of which the answer seems to be hidden even deeper under the planet.

Both must be dealt with explosives ([[ArtisticLicensePhysics because the best way to get rid of lava is to blow it up]]). [[spoiler:Around -5000ft invisible natural gas pockets may blow everything next to you up like dynamite but also causes heavy damage, and the boss can only be defeated with explosives.]]
