Good effort. I like the idea of hunting for asteroids to mine, it fits the theme well.

I got a nasty audio bug several times, where weapon sounds looped continuously until you fired again.

It was a good effort.

I also got the sound bug... not sure what's causing it (No source?).

Man... This was a good concept for a game, and it seemed really interesting, but needed some serious playtesting. Your ship is just too slow. It was agonizing to watch the little thing crawl across the sky. I played for 15 minutes to get the upgraded speed, but it was still too slow to really be engaging.

I can't vote since there is a bug: I have a white background and can't basically read any of the text unless it happens to be over a planet.
The ship is awfully slow.

Hmm, the game doesn't look like the screenshots to me. I have a white background, which makes the game pretty hard to understand -- I couldn't even tell that I had money or that the planets did anything until I happened to put my ship behind their white hover text. I blew up some asteroids and even some planets, but nothing seemed to happen. I thought my ship moved very slowly, actually so slowly that it made me chuckle. :)

Good potential. Fun little explore-and-mine game. Like others, I had the weapon sound looping bug.

I'd had the same problem Endurion describes.

That sure gave my Spacebar a workout...

It worked on my new PC. A very nice game but the controls are killing most of the fun. For one the space ship starts out ridiculously slow. And having to press SPACE all the time is rather annoying.
A map or radar would be neat, I ventured too far and got out of fuel :(
