What's New

It's been three years, so this had better be one AWESOME update! Don't worry, we've got you covered:

- Now a UNIVERSAL app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch after we realized that most games on the App Store are technically "HD" now anyway.
- Added a BRAND NEW STORYLINE after years of haggling with space miner unions to get members of the original cast back in the studio.
- Added 16 brand new sectors to mine and explore following our discovery that we could create entire space systems with mere lines of code.
- Recruited a brand new villain and army of bad guys from Mega Space Corp's prestigious Accelerated Villainy Programme.
- Sculpted new asteroids from pure space dust and hid numerous treasures around the new system.
- Added two new license levels and top-tier gear to match following intense negotiations with the Space Miner's Association.
- Added a new ultra-powerful level 8 ship designed by billionaire madman Bancroft. It's possible he was planning to use it to dominate the galaxy.
- Made the game play nice with iOS 8, as it is used by a majority of our space mining fleet.
- Remastered ship models, weapons, and equipment. Space Trader Galactus was happy about the improvements, we think. It's hard to tell with him.
- Fixed a huge chunk of all those little things that bugged us over the last three years.
