Good start, good graphics, potential

It feels a bit incomplete but I haven’t hit any bugs yet.

For joystick controls and overall controls I would love to customize the layout.

I would also love it if the upgrades would tell you how much of an upgrade it is. Like increase 50% or 100% of this.

For powers, having a little video or clip that shows what it does before purchase would be icing on top.

Im not sure of guns have a firing arc or not but there are ranges but it would be nice to see where the guns can shoot.

Fun game. Scratches that ever present and ancient Space Miner itch quite satisfactorily

Wish the sector map displayed RU farms so I didn’t have to quit to the main menu every time to quickly check on which sectors were ready for farming though.

A few weeks later and still loving this game, between the mechanics and the audio/visual candy it’s great. Suggestion: Forward BeM needs to last one second longer, and be twice as loud, can’t get enough of that :)

Developer Response ,

The pre-pre-pre alpha of this game was actually called "Space Miner" internally! To beat Anubis you want some decent shields, and deployable turrets work well against his cage modes. Try out the challenges or endless mode for RU/rewards to help :)

Reminds me of Armada on Dreamcast

Every once in a while I look on the App Store for a game that looks like armada for Dreamcast. This is really close. Only thing I don’t like is the pacing. Fun fun fun super hard bad guy. And the mining is cool but I wish there was also experience for blowing up bad guys so if you need to grind at least you playing and not endless asteroid mining. This is a great game.
