  • Amazing Game, Great Nostalgia Jan 19, 2018

    By Captain Kimball
    I played this game for the first time many years ago, during what you make call the “Do you have any games on your phone?” phase. I might not have realized it back then, but I now see the amazing game that these guys created. Depending on how you count, I have played though this game 3 or 4 times at this point, and have enjoyed it every time. Despite its simple nature, (shoot asteroids, shoot robots, upgrade, repeat), this game is consistent fun and always calls me back. With the update to platinum edition, the amazing original had been improved even more, with greater length, proper scaling on larger screens, (at least the iPhone SE size), and more robust performance. The story, while simple, is well written and contains humorous characters that can lead to some genuinely entertaining and funny interactions. Simply put, despite its repetitive nature, this game is unending fun, well polished, and shows how developers can create and support truly great games without fancy graphics and constant advertisement. The best game on the App Store. Period.

  • Still can't get enough of it. Jan 10, 2021

    By Tomcat333
    Have played hundreds of times since it came out, and still can't get enough of it. This is not just a game, it is a finely tuned instrument of addiction. This game alone has literally turned my iPod into my favorite toy of all time! Please keep it coming Venan! UPDATE 2021: Still love my favorite game even after all these years, but now sadly am going to subtract a star. Have been playing it since shortly after it first came out, and it was just fine until it became included in “Game Club”. Now there are these periodic ads that pop-up for all these crappy other games that I couldn’t care less about. If you take this game as seriously as I always have, these interruptions are really annoying. It takes lots of concentration to score really high in this game (like >100,000,000), and ANY distractions are unwelcome. Had I known this was going to happen would have never updated it. Now regret having updated. PLEASE put a setting or option in the game to turn off these unwanted and unwelcome ads/distractions/annoyances, and I will gladly reinstate my 5-star rating for Space Miner.

  • Really very fun! Give it a try. You won’t be sorry. Mar 12, 2018

    By Cap Blew
    I skipped this game a number of times in my search for good space games. Thought it might be to arcade style, and a kids game until I decided to give it a look. This little gem is easy to figure out. The developers use a lot of humor as your crazy uncle sends you out on various missions and to destroy space robots. And mine lots of ore to make money to save the family business. Mining isn’t tedious like most space games, plus this game has Lots of different missions from different sources other than mining. Controls are perfect, and the game is much deeper than it appears. All that money you make from mining actually can be used to upgrade your old clunker ship into something powerful, and new. Give it a try!

  • Great Game. Great Update Mar 2, 2017

    By KrummyAmI
    I first played this years ago on my 3GS. I remember it being good. I recently upgraded to a 7 plus and reinstalled this game. There was a massive upgrade since I played years ago and the campaign is now about a third longer. Roughly 4 hours on easy. There is also a new game+ mode and a few difficulty levels. And achievements (not just the Game Center kind). And a hilarious well written story. The list goes on. Simply put, skip all the games with micro transactions or constant ads and play a real video game.

    Scam. 5 quid a month
  • Another unnecessary Subscription Apr 30, 2020

    By Plorthos
    I used to play this back in the iPad 1 days, albeit a pirated version. Now that I can finally purchase it, they completely removed the ability for a one time purchase, forcing you to subscribe to play. I hate subscriptions and I don’t want to pay $5 a month for a library of games I don’t care about, I just want this one game. Furthermore, $5 a month is a complete ripoff, especially since you can get Apple Arcade with actually new games for the same price. If I could permanently buy the game, I would give it 4.5 stars. It is the second best spaceship ARPG I’ve ever played, second only to Galaxy on Fire 2. The story is full of personality and charm, the game is brilliantly paced and the gameplay is simple yet engaging. This is a great introduction to this genre for new gamers.

    This game used to be free to play. Now it's pay to play. Was about to show my friends and family about this game, because I played it long time ago. Now it's just another game I will uninstall and forget it ever existed. Just like my childhood memories. R.I.P.

  • This Game Rocks!!! (no pun intended) Jun 4, 2018

    By Certified Vampire
    I have enjoyed playing this again! I honestly believe this game would have been well received back in the 80s. More than Asteroids, it provides the ability to modify your ship (even more than Blasteroids), and gives fun storyline to make more of the game than bob-and-weave through an asteroid field.

  • perfect game except... Feb 27, 2010

    By djiceburgs
    i agree with another reviewer who said it should be more difficult to have the difficulty level set back. hardcore is difficult (as it should be). if you die a few times, it asks you do you want to go to hard? (you will want to say no) but the problem is, when you die, it asks you to retry the level. so if you aren't paying attention (like me), you'll just hit yes because you expect it to ask you to play the level again. honestly, there should be no option to go back a difficulty level. but besides that minor nitpick. wow. great game. i've been wasting WAY too much time playing this (its that good!). more suggestions (small ones, reasonable ones): allow us to keep playing AFTER we defeat the boss: maybe only in hardcORE mode? more weapons upgrades in the higher modes. maybe allowing us to equip 4 alien tech in hard and 5 in hardcORE? i've just defeated hardcore and want to play more but don't know what to do. help!

    This game and it's original development team deserves slot of praise for the monumental achievement of making the best game in the AppStore. I just beat it and I had a hoot of a time the whole way through. I look forward to further endeavors from them. May the adventure continue soon. It’s now 2020 and coming back to this game, not only am I still having a blast, but also a sense of nostalgia. Update! One issue I have with this game, is that I purchased it originally for full price, before GameClub, yet I still have ads in game. GameClub even verified that I had purchased this game and stated that no ads would be shown when I signed into GameClub. This is unacceptable and definitely deters me from purchasing a subscription. It loads ads during a loading screen, but this still removes immersion and impedes the flow of game design.

  • .30 update made a broken game Oct 21, 2020

    By Try tone
    I absolutely love this game and come back to it every few months to play again, but the recent update(s) broke the game by only showing graphics in the lower left quadrant on my iPad 4th gen running iOS 14. The game is unplayable until this is fixed. I hope it eventually gets rectified, because this game is one of the all-time best in its genre and it would be a shame to be forgotten because of a bug issue.
