XGen Studios Flash games

Tipping the hat to old favorites such as Dig Dug and Boulder Dash, Motherload incorporates a modern interface, fast-paced gameplay, and an in-depth storyline. Experience exciting gameplay in the substrata of Mars, where you'll search for the Motherload; A fabled cache of rare and valuable minerals.
Navigate the dangers of Martian soil, complete with hidden gas pockets, earthquakes, and other surprises. Purchase powerful upgrades for your Mining Pod with the fruits of your labor. Compare high scores with friends to see who the champion really is. When you've finished the game, challenge more difficult gameplay modes.

A GameCube controller is required to play GameCube titles, as neither the Wii Remote nor the Classic Controller functions in this capacity. A Nintendo GameCube Memory Card is also necessary to save, as the Wii internal flash memory will not save GameCube games.
So I guess I need to go buy ANOTHER controller. Sigh.
