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.

Spaceminer, Ore or Busy

UPDATE: I am very happy that space miner has been given an update... I am very unhappy that the addiction cycle has started again. I am disappointed that General Scar has returned and the level is so hard... 6 hours trying to beat his minions just in the first sector... Maybe you could have eased us in? Three years is a long time in gaming and my thumb speed is not what it used to be! STILL A 5 STAR GAME...

One of the first apps I had for my iPhone was Space Miner the lite version. I was so taken by this game that I paid my 59 pence and away I went. The addiction started soon after... many nights spent playing through drooling over the graphics, but not only that, it had game play, a storyline and with rewards of alien technology that were persistent, that is that you kept the tech to play through the next time you started over. So... Newly presented with an iPad I see the HD Space Miner... Errrmm, tough decision, £2.99 for a game? The choice was made and here is the addiction all over again. This is by far one of my top ten games for iPhone and iPad. It is a game you play and play again. The price? How much do you spend on apps? Back when "I was a PC" I would spend up to a £40 a month on PC games... My app bill is tiny compared to that. If you only buy one game, make it this one. A genuine five star app! An excellent game to start the new year and fingers crossed for a Space Miner 2!

One of the All-Time Greats

This is a fantastic game and the update just made it even better. It's one of a small number of games that I just keep coming back to. I must admit I thought Venan had given up on it, so the Platinum update was a hugely welcome surprise. Hoping there will be more updates to come!

I can wholeheartedly recommend this game. The only downside is the lack of sleep! But who needs sleep when there's asteroids and robots to blast?!

Great update and return to top form

Finished first four sectors and loving the new challenge. Tough new drones nearly caught me out, but proved I'd started getting complacent and stale. Hints of some interesting storylines to come. Loved the original and now it's back in my top 5. Thank you for a new lease of life :-)
