The Story So Far

Onboard the huge mining ship LMS Explorer, the Rock Raiders are returning home after a long expedition through the outer rim of the galaxy. Everything is going fine.... until the ship accidentally sails into a giant asteroid field! The crew struggles bravely to guide the ship through the storm of tumbling rocks, but the endless bombardment quickly damages the ship's shield and puts the crew in danger.

Just when the Rock Raiders think things can't get any worse, the ship's sensors detected a vast wormhole at the centre of the asteroid field - and it's sucking them in! With the ship low on power and listing badly, there's little the crew can do but accept their fate and hang on!

One-Player Game

The one-player game challenges you to 18 action packed missions set in the caves and tunnels beneath the alien planet's surface. In each mission you'll be asked to achieve an objective, such a find Energy Crystals or rescue trapped Rock Raiders. Depending on how well you perform your task you could earn special rewards like medals or even secret missions! But take care, as danger lurks in every cavern! Good Luck!

Secret Missions


Alien Lifeforms

Many mining crews have reported sightings of weird creatures lurking in the caverns beneath the planet's surface. Here's the lowdown on the one currently known about, but be warned there could be even nastier horrors waiting in the deeper caverns.


Take care not to drive into any of the spider's sticky webs or your vehicle will get stuck fast! Luckily, a blast from a Pusher Gun will clear away the cobwebs.


Scorpions will track your movement and attempt to drain your SheildSuit's power with blobs of poisons plasma.

Slimy Slugs

These critters may look cute but once disturbed they behave like battering rams, slamming at high speed into any Rock Raiders or vehicles nearby.

Rock Monsters

These are the most dangerous lifeforms yet encountered. If you happen to see a Rock Monster then it's probably best to RUN!

Rock Whales

The Rock Whale is a lumbering creature, which often stops for a sleep in the most awkward of places. It can be lured out of your way by a blast from the Pusher Beam - for some reason, they're attracted to the energy they produce. The have also been known to jump into water, forming makeshift bridges.

Natural Hazards

It's not just the lifeforms you've got to watch out for - the planet itself poses a few problem too...


Try to avoid falling or driving into water - it will short-circuit your shield circuitry and drain it's power.


Lava is extremely dangerous! If you get too close Chief will have no choice but to teleport you home pronto!


These jets of scalding steam are very dangerous and can surprise you so - take extreme care!

Lava Plumes

Like geysers but even nastier - one blast from these can knock even a Tunnel Transport out of the sky.
