The Goldium Edition of Motherload is the premium CD version which includes a great array of new items and game modes. For instance, blueprints for rare accessories can be found and aid may come from strange and varied parties, including martians and angels. 12 different challenge modes exist within which to test the skill of the most astute miners.
Gameplay is similar to the original, with the player primarily drilling for valuable ores while managing hull damage and fuel levels. The greater the risk and the deeper the drilling, the greater the rewards. But, can one dig too far...?
