Is Space Miner worth the 5 bucks?

I was not very impressed by the screenshots, review, or intro video of Space Miner but it seems like everyone on this site is gushing about it. What makes it so great? How much playtime does it have? Is it addicting? And most importantly: is it worth the cash? Thanks guys

I`ve never seen 100% positive reaction for any other game on TA. Not even a single negative comment in that thread.

There's got be something really great about this game. Havent tried it myself yet though. But it's getting harder and harder to resist after seeing all those positive replies in that thread

i feel the same way. however, the 20 games that i need to beat are telling me not to get the game yet. although the dev said himself it wont go on sale for at least 12 months! which is good.

I was skeptical at first, and didn't really want to spend the money, I did and at the beggining I felt buyer's remorse but once i got into the game I really liked it, its just got something special you can't really name, of course it does come at a price though...

Best game I've played on the iPod to date. It just gets everything right. I'd say it's well worth the money. And I'd much rather have this game than five half-finished, 99 cent games any day.

Now I just hope the dev adds some more game elements before moving on to his next release. I'm not even though the first play-through and I already want more!

well, i've spent 6 hours on it so far and still going so i'd say yeah. well worth the 5 dollars.
controls are great, graphics are sharp, storyline is actually engaging and well... i cant even do the game justice!

This thread is another desperate cry for attention. Either get the game or don't. Not convinced that it's worth 5 bucks by the reviews or comments? Then you are either illiterate or a moron, and no amount of praise is going to help you. If you have plenty of other games to finish then hold off till you have the time to play it. Either way, there's
nothing to discuss here that hasn't been covered on the main thread.
