What's New in Version 1.5.1

- Fixed: An issue where super-awesome Space Miners could actually earn too many Spacebucks before updating and then get stuck. We have proceeded to raise our expectations for all future Space Miners and fixed the bug.
- Fixed: Somebody noticed the big lever in the office labeled "Anti-Aliasing" had been switched to the "off" position. We went ahead and switched that on.
- Fixed: Achievements were not unlocking in Game Center, and also tended to lock up the game when viewed in the Player Apartment. We were, like, 99% sure that wasn't intended by design, so we went and fixed all that.

Customer Reviews

I'm speechless!

I don't often write reviews on apps, but I had to drop a line for Space Miner. You know all the hype surrounding the reviews of this game? It's all true, it's even better than they say! Everything in this game just feels right. The controls are spot on, the graphics are top notch, the sounds and dialogs are outstanding, and the depth and replay value are off the charts! Don't think, just click buy!

UPDATE 1: After 4 years, they went and updated my favorite iOS game of all time, and it's better than ever! The new graphics make this like a totally new game and they added a TON of new content. Seriously, buy this game NOW!!!

UPDATE 2: Wow, the boys and girls at Venan are on fire, they just made things even better with another update! Seriously people, if you don't have this game buy it NOW and support an outstanding developer. I'm really looking forward to a sequel, you folks at Venan are amazing! I'd also like to say that it's downright criminal that this isn't featured under "Best New Updates," Apple needs to wake up.


A few years ago, long before the new update came out, I loved Space Miner. The only downside was that once I'd completed the game once, what came next was way too predictable. I would either take on the challenge of Hard difficulty, or start over again in Normal difficulty. After completing the game a few more times, it got kind of boring, and I moved on to other games. I just got back into Space Miner (partly because I hadn't played in a long time), and I had updated it but was unaware of all the new things they had added. I actually got disappointed when I had cleared all the sectors but the Beta sector, because I thought the whole thing would just start all over again. But instead, I was delighted and amazed to find there was a new adventure to begin! I could also go back to Beta and finally mine those giant metalstroids! That is the most amazing update EVER!!! Great job, Space Miner! 😄😄😄😄

Hands down one of the best - buy it.

I play a ton of games on my iPhone, but this is absolutely one of my favorites. Unlike other games that have been copied and re-copied to death, this one is unique. It is fun and funny. They fixed the bugs in the last update, and the new add on mission is outstanding. Everything you'd want. Challenging, but not impossible, and the dialogue still has all the humor. I wish it would have been an in-app purchase, so I could have given them more money.

Venan, if it's not too much trouble, a sequel? :)
