APRIL 13TH, 2015- UPDATE 0.8.9

Small update!
This is sometimes even better than big updates!

- Fixed a few issues on the Mars Landscape level where some jacks would not sync correctly.
- Fixed an issue that caused the Chariot Rover to vanish.
- The Chariot Rover will self-charge it's battery (in the same way as the buggy). Except the Chariot also needs to be dusted off.

- Asteroid fixes in the Mars & Saturn Orbit levels. You can now destroy asteroids and collect the pieces.
- You can now left click to target an asteroid.
- Fixed an issue that would cause debris and asteroids to not spawn (in some cases).

- Loaded habs will now properly be recognized by the blueprint menu.
- Rex saves and loads properly.
- You now spawn in the Mars Lander in the Tyrrhena Terra map.

- All ground buildings should save and load correctly (e.g., Engineering Garage).
- Fixed a typo in the Europa description.

I got this in a bundle with 6 other games for $2. As such, it was 33c for this game.

I like the concept. I like the idea of a sport in zero gravity. Where this falls down is in the execution. It is glitchy, the physics sometimes defy logic, and of course the result is a multiplayer game with NO player base. It's dead. I begged my gf and she played with me to get the achievements, but in hindsight the only fun was not the game but in making fun of it. Like watching a really bad movie. It's so bad it is funny. If I played this with random players (if there were any) then maybe it would be less fun.

Avoid this game like the plague. Shame on the authors for tarnishing NASA and shame on NASA for not suing them over it.

My dog would love to play this game so she can keep running circles and jumping in a multiplayer only game that has no activity.
