Needs some fine tuning


The two things that stood out immediately are the uncomfortable controls and difficulty finding tier 2 materials. The controls making jumping and using the jet pack a pain to do. I often would be running and then my jet pack would activate burning valuable fuel. I'd much rather have the jet pack have a dedicated button. Second, the second tier materials are too hard to find. I don't mind spending the time to hunt for them but I've gotten to a point where I'm digging deeper than my jet pack can take me to find the materials to upgrade my jet pack. Finally, the ads are really going overboard and I don't see this game being worth the money to invest in ad free.

Raging and time consuming


The graphics of this game is amazing, but every single time I dug deeper the jet pack runs out of fuel and many of the times I only need a few seconds of fuel to reach the portal. I didn't collect enough materials to upgrade the jet pack yet, and I had spent 2 hrs playing the game already, only to delete it because I found the controls to be uncomfortable and I always teleported to the surface without the many materials I spent much patience and time on mining. If you could refill the jet pack by watching an ad or something each time you run out, I would've rated this 5/5. Very disappointing for a game with great graphics.

Adds are a bit annoying


First of all, great game! I suggest that anyone wondering if they should get it or not defiantly should give this game a try. The only complaint that I have is that I dread having to open the crafting station because like 75% of the time there's like a 30 second add. So the only thing I can say to change is maybe to lower the percentage of adds to maybe like 40% of the time, but otherwise it's a really great game!
