A space-based strategy/shooter where you must mine the asteroids around you for precious metals to sell, in order to upgrade your ship with the latest weapons and equipment. To complete a level you need to earn a fixed amount of money, either from mining or bounty from destroying rival miners.

You can mind your own business and mine the asteroids for money, or actively seek out the opposition and hunt them down for bounty payments.

Features:
- large 2D scrolling play areas
- a variety of different planets to refuel and trade at
- six different precious (and not so precious) minerals to mine
- variety of different enemy ships each with differing strengths speeds and weapons
- a range of weapons from the humble laser up to guided missiles which lock on to enemy ships and fly around asteroids
- limited fuel (dock at any planet to refuel)
- minefields with proximity based charges
- stars (even binary systems) with gravity
- radar system to spot planets and enemy ships
- planetary shield systems to safeguard docked craft
- auto-repairing shield systems
- multiplayer mode for up to 8 players to fight a deathmatch amongst the asteroids
