Is this neat indie dead?

This is one of the best games ever. Cute graphics, minimalistic design and gameplay style, neat backdrop (can’t really call it a storyline), easy to pick up and hard to put down. The only planets I couldn’t beat in one go were Carbon, Radium, and Xenon. Boy was Xenon a toughie. Took me about 15 tries. The game was around 3 hours long. To any devs reading this, is this game dead. Seeing as its been a year since an update or any reviews even, it seems likely. I would love to see a random world generator, custom world builder, multiplayer, alien races, a sequel, a prequel… ANYTHING.
Not a whole lot of replay ability, so I would just love pretty much any addition to the game. If any devs are out there, thanks a lot for this diamond in the rough.

So the first thing you look at when you see a game is the price. It could be free or costly but this game is amazing but still costly for a 14 level game. I honestly think the creator would have made way more money of off a 1.99 game instead of a whopping five bucks for a mobile game. Overall this is a great game to kill time and I just think they should make more levels. Tip: if you play the game and keep in losing on one level use your resource mines. Lastly check out smashy road 1 and 2 for a nice free time killing game to add to your playlist. Thank you!

So much fun!

I absolutely love this game. I love the looks, design, and simplicity. The campaign, though extremely short, is extremely fun and gets fairly challenging. This game however has a few problems:

1. The campaign is extremely short and leaves you wanting more. The game almost seems like an early access build with just a few levels available at the moment. This game needs more levels.

2. This game seems like the perfect way to challenge your friends and family. Multiplayer would take this game to new heights. If that isn’t possible, local play would have the same effect, and would make the price tag worth it.

3. The price is a bit much for what the game is currently offering. I’m not sure if the price will change but I bought this game for $5. I beat the game in around 4 hours. I highly recommend lowering the price tag or adding multiplayer.

I cannot stress enough how much I love this game. It is a blast to play and I look forward to seeing what new update and improvements will be coming!
