    Is there still a premium version of this?

    I can only find a version that requires a monthly subscription, for which I’m gonna pass.

    Nope, it's part of GameClub now. Your best bet if you don't want to subscribe to their service later this year is to play the Testflight versions for free now while you can:

    And if you join their Discord server you can get access to Space Miner Blast too:

    I’m stuck on Balerian, Scar keeps destroying me and my shield which is maxed, can’t hold up. Does anyone know the cheat codes you can enter on the profile screen?

    I cannot believe I missed the MSC XR-7 hull gets +1 Alien tech slots ( 4 total ).

    It is nice the Proto shield charger, and the Quark Quintiplier, are both alien tech, so they carry over to the next play through.

    My old save was on the family account. Getting all the alien tech on a new individual account is currently VERY annoying. Especially since some alien tech is sucks ( looking at you Mega joule lens ), some is awesome ( looking at you Equilibrium Stabilizer ), and most is average ( looking at you Kinergetic Capstan ).

    Link to my old UltracORE walk through ( needs to be updated for new 16x sector map )

    It is the curse of micro transactions.

    My family spent about $30 USD ( over seven years and 400+ hours playing ) on all three versions of Space Miner ( phone, iPad and Platinum ).
    But a family we know spent over $10,000 USD ( 2x spouses, and a parent, over 5 years or roughly $55 USD per person per month ) on Book of Heroes ( another Venan Entertainment/ Megaspace Industries game ).

    So the GameClub monthly subscription is a compromise between no one wanting to spend $8 on your game, and loading it up with micro transactions.

    Interestingly, I tried to download the new GameClub verison. The Apple App store said I had already bought it so I did not have to pay a monthly subscription to play it.

    Plus GameClub appears to be handling the bug fixes, and iOS updates, for Brandon ( CEO of Megaspace Industries )

    [Tip] Styrofoam Sector

    ### Neutron Beam

    For mining the Styrofoam Sector - Level 9 - I use:

    Neutron Beam

    Quark Quintipler, Mejajoule Lens, Atomic Resonator

    The Neutron Beam is the longest range weapon in the game, has infinite shot speed, shoots through objects, and does the most damage.

    Mejajoule Lens, and Atomic Resonator, increase damage versus asteroids. Quark Quintipler lets you use the Neutron Beam.

    ### Cool down

    The Neutron Beam cool down is very very long ( that is another rant ).

    Instead of waiting for it to cool down, I just return to base after each use of the Neutron Beam in the Styrofoam sector.
