Loved it!

Great little game. Go out, mine (or shouldn I say shoot at the asteroids) collect the ore. Shoot the enemys. Return. Upgrade. Repeat. Yes it is repetitive, but enjoyable enough that you want to go back out and get a bit more cash to get that next level weapon or ore collector. Only real problem is that it's too short. Its a 7x7 map, and after you complete them all, doing all the extra little quests along the way there is nothing else to do apart from start again on a more difficult level. You can start with some upgrades you found during the last game, but thats it. Not really enough to warrant a replay, but was worth the money for the single run through.

Surprisingly good

I didn't buy this game for about a month as it looked cartoony and stupid. But I gave in and gave it a go. The controls work very well and are kept nice and simple, which is more than can be said for most top down space games. The basic premise is very simple and although technically very repetitive it doesn't fell it or get boring. Missions give a nice break and a change up of style, and the story and characters are quite funny. And who doesn't love customising their very own spaceship? Well worth the price, very good fun.


Top game. Asteroids with fun graphics, funky bluegrass music and jokes that are actually funny. Can play for 5 minutes or 50. Well worth the money, but try the Lite first if you're not convinced as you can export save game to Plus to put in full version when you buy it. Easily one of the best iPhone games.

Space Miner II is promised; can't wait! I'm still working thorough this one to try to get all the trophies, and it never gets old. This is one of the perhaps 3 games on my phone I keep coming back to.
