Nice little puzzler, although it's not immediately clear what you're supposed to do.

I like the idea, but you have to trudge through quite a lot of story to get to the actual gameplay... I ended up getting to an unbeatable level. The game told me to use 2 bombs when I was only given one to use.

Nice game. The music didn't play for me but I still listed to it :)

@Pacifist Games: Showing the solution doesn't restock your number of tools.

I had trouble getting the music to work. Otherwise, it was a fairly simple puzzle. Not too difficult and I found it pretty simple to decipher. :D

Neat game, well executed. Except for the music not working.

Really a pretty fun game. With just a bit of experimenting I was able to figure out what was going on. You made playing around with it easy too with instant restarts. Nice work.

Fun puzzler. I hit the M key for music and my spotify, which was paused, started playing. Otherwise music didn't work. =p

Neat game, polished presentation and overall nice.

Thanks for adding the solution, the later stages are tough to figure out.
The one where you need to use a deep bomb on the core is nasty though.

Very neat game, with fun puzzles. A great entry!

Interesting once I figured out what each tool did. And that I was seeing the perspective of an asteroid rather than a SPACE MINER.

For that minority (of one, it seems :( ) of us playing games on netbooks or, the game goes outside the screen. (I'm playing at a 1024x600 resolution at the moment)

Also, I don't have a mouse for the time being, so I thank you for having arrows switch between tools. It would have been more comfortable to play if you had the left and right arrow keys move the cone around as well.

Quite addictive! The game is very short, but for a longer game with more puzzles I'd considering including an easy way of understanding how many horizontal tiles the planet has, instead of moving the mouse around, because this number changes depending on the puzzle.

Besides that, very fun puzzle game! Congrats! If you're thinking of making a longer version of it, consider adding new terrain types and other kinds of tools!
