    Asteroid blasting has never been so fun… and profitable.

    But I'm a sucker for space shooters and now it's turned me completely on my head. I've been mining the app store for gems, and in Space Miner I've struck pay dirt. Like comets, games like this are rarely seen. Don't let this one pass you by.

    Space Miner is an addictive, well polished Asteroids clone, that mixes fast paced space combat with RPG inspired ship upgrading. This game is highly recommended.

    The RPG elements are fantastic, the story is great, and the graphics and sound are amazing. In a game like this, I would expect longevity to be a concern, but if you do everything in the game, it will probably take you 10-15 hours… and maybe more, to complete.

    Though the controls are a little hard to get used to, Space Miner: Space Ore Bust delivers an awesome gameplay, lots of missions and upgrades, all held together by a funny plot. A very nice experience.

    Space Miner is sitting on a gold mine of charming gameplay, yet awkward controls and gameplay imbalances keep it from reaching its full potential.
