This NG classic has been around for a while, but it was NOT the first user-created NG game as many people seem to think in the reviews. It does have some significance as being the first game to have a front-page icon, but I repeat, was NOT the first NG game.

could of done a bit better...

Its pretty fun game although a bit too easy.I know a lot of you think its hard but really its not.Most of the time rather than searching for things that icould obliterate i would just go from planet to planet tryying to find cheap prices for that crystal thing and then selling it fpr about 5 times the price.I beat the game in about 10 minutes and got the best ship and 26 of the best gun.Overall it may be good but its not that good.

Not bad, needs a little work

Not a bad idea for a game. Seemed rather difficult to earn enough money to keep your ship repaired and weapons upgraded. Would be nice to have a way to sell your drones so you can get them replaced, instead of having to wait for them to get hit in battle. Speaking of battle, I found I had to run from every fight with more then 5 guys.

Quite Confusing

The game was quite confusing, and it wasn't really fun.

Difficult Mode is Ridiculously Difficult

I don't know why the programmer of this game decided to disable the use of the money lender, but it certainly adds a ridiculous level of difficulty to the game. Not being able to borrow more than $0 is pretty funny, though.

It kinda makes me think that the programmer snapped after reading all of the reviews saying "OMG I BEAT TEH GAME IN 5 MINUTES."

But seriously, turn it back on. It's really annoying that I can't borrow money or load a game.

Fun, but too easy.

I managed to beat it in under five minutes, the money lender makes it wayyyyyy too easy.
