Super Motherload is just about long enough for what it is, wrapping up before getting tedious while still providing plenty of gem and mineral harvesting action. There’s no real reason for it to be on PS4 versus any other system, of course, but that doesn’t prevent it from being a fun bit of digging with an excellent soundtrack. Super Motherload does a great job of satisfying one’s inner miner, letting you dig to the heart of Mars and the bizarre mystery lying in its core.

Super Motherload, for the most part, is a relatively fun and interesting game. The soundtrack pairs perfectly with the gameplay, making for an incredibly entrancing experience ...There are some twists and turns in the story that left me saying, "What just happened?!” The unique visuals are simple, pleasing, smooth, and work well with the narrative. ...Regardless, at an attractive price of $14.99, there is good reason to give this indie game a try.

In the end, XGen’s writing is entertaining enough, the digging puzzles are devious, and with co-op and Hardcore mode anyone can find an experience they’ll enjoy. Super Motherload belies the complexities of its systems by providing an unassuming, low-fi aesthetic, but dig in and you’ll find hours of play time in the dirt on Mars. If PlayStation can continue discovering gems like Super Motherload, indies might really make the difference in this console war.
