I third that, and would like to officially nominate this game for the Official title of "Best Asteroid Blastin' Game in the App Store". Can I get a witness?

Yes, and I'm guessing a couple more hundreds would also agree.

Never mind asteroid blasting. This is probably the best, funniest RPG in the App Store right now.

Am I wrong about this or does it seem like you can run into stuff fairly easily. When you do does your ship get damage?

Your ship has shields, which, like pretty much everything else, you can upgrade. When you run into anything (or get shot at) the shields take damage, but they recover fairly quickly. Trust me, navigating the asteroid fields is not frustrating at all, even at first when you're not very good at it.
