    I third that, and would like to officially nominate this game for the Official title of "Best Asteroid Blastin' Game in the App Store". Can I get a witness?

    Yes, and I'm guessing a couple more hundreds would also agree.

    Never mind asteroid blasting. This is probably the best, funniest RPG in the App Store right now.

    Am I wrong about this or does it seem like you can run into stuff fairly easily. When you do does your ship get damage?

    Your ship has shields, which, like pretty much everything else, you can upgrade. When you run into anything (or get shot at) the shields take damage, but they recover fairly quickly. Trust me, navigating the asteroid fields is not frustrating at all, even at first when you're not very good at it.

    Great! Thanks. That was pretty much my only hesitation. This game looks freakin' good.

    From the video this looks like quality. Definitely tempted.

    I believe the game is just easing you in, I'm sure bullets and rocks will hurt more later...at least I hope so.

    There are only two reasons not to get this game:

    1) You don't have the money. In which case, I say: sell your blood, or something.

    2) You hate fun. In which case, I feel sorry for you.

    Let me give you an example of well polished this game is: the third mission involves rescuing tourists who have become scattered in one of the asteroid fields. When you pick them up, every single one of them says something different (and funny).

    At every turn you encounter surprises like that.

    @Gabrien: I would be very surprised if you don't love this game.

    @LordGek: I've only explored the easiest sectors so far. Considering that the game keeps track of how many times you've been killed, I can only assume that it gets tougher as you progress.

    As I wrote in my App Store review, I love this game so much that I'm finding it hard to put into words. I'm not kidding.

    Satisfied Customer symtome, again!

    Yes, I feel the same! I love this game very much. It was definately worth tracking the progress from the very beginning, talking with developers and impatiently waiting for every screenshot or video.

    Also, You can call "Space Miner" action game. You can call it asteroid-blasting game. You can call it arcade game...
    But I call it RPG because it is RPG: very slight one, which combines elements of all genres mentioned but very funny and atmospheric :)
    Instabuy, friends.

    Wow. This is one heck of a polished game. Granted I'm not but 30 minutes in, this is extremely well done. I'm very impressed thus far! :D
