Kicking Me Out of The App...?

Hey, I absolutely LOVE the game, but right after I reached level 5, it will no longer let me access the game... I mean, it will let me pick the character I want to play as, but after I press load, it kicks me out of the app... Like I said before, I ADORE the game, great graphics, hilarious story line (my favorite part so far is when Galactus says he talks to himself telepathically), and I love how it's almost a "choose your own story" game. Those kinds are my favorites, and I have no complaints other than the kicking me out thing. This is odd because it's NEVER done this to me before. 😊 I love you guys and I want more games like this!!! 😘 thank you very much!!!!! 💓😍😄😝😄😊😃💗👍👍👍👍👌

Love you guys!!!!!!!!

Bluegrass Space Extravaganza!

A unique game in which you shoot rocks and collect ores, fight off robots and upgrade your ship to do the former two better. While doing all this, you get to enjoy a great storyline and hear some bluegrass pickin' an' a grinnin'. A fantastic juxtaposition! Best of all, no in-game purchases! All the elements of a great phone game. I recommend this to anyone who likes simple games that have a lot if depth and who enjoy the RPG elements of upgrading gear and seeing the fruits of those upgrades. Enjoy!

Good as gold get it, "ore" you'll regret it

I picked this one about a week ago because it looked like an update to "Star Miner" that was on the "Egames" collections. I was wrong it's not an update, but a re imagining and 1000% better. All the 5 star reviews say a lovely truth about how great this gem of a game is. The lack of "pay to earn" resources makes this game highly valuable on the app market. Only thing I would change is the music, but then again you can always use your own music.
