It's taking a bit too long... I hope the paid version doesnt get abandoned.
Ditto. After seeing the new free version, I reinstalled the paid version I have on my 6s. It still plays great, albeit a few bugs, but I am itching at the chance to try this new update! Please please don't abandon this wonderful game! Hope you guys are working on the issues and adding a lil bit of content for us loyal paid version people! Looking forward to it, good luck Crescent Moon!

The controller support is awesome, but pause functionality is broken when using the controller, which also means that save functionality is also broken with a controller as well, since it uses manual save now. Might want to check this out, Josh.

End Game

First off let me say great game! I did live Metroid and this did remind me of it a bit although obviously not nearly as extensive. I did enjoy it a lot though and it was well worth the price.

I think I've done everything possible but wanted to be sure. I crafted all tools and guns. I got all museum items. I found all bots. I beat the last boss. My only concern is I only have 85% completion and haven't upgraded all the guns.

Is it possible to find upgrades for all guns and get 100% or have I done all I can do?

I started playing the game a few days ago and after crafting the colbalt pickaxe in the craft station appeared the rodhite drill, I keep playing but now when I went in the craft station the rodhite drill disappeared it is not available for crafting anymore.... Any ideas?

Nvm, Need the steel pickaxe, probably forgot to save...

I just wanted to report a bug i found to be pretty distressful.

I bought the second portal upgrade and it spawned inside a dungeon, directly over a piece of the key. Where the block would usually disappear after defeating the boss, there is not a metal block blocking the entrance.

I already saved my game and it doesn't look like this is really reversible so will i be unable to collect all the keys now?
