One problem which certainly should have been fixed is that, because the space for responses to commands is very limited, the text usually scrolls out of sight, so that it can't be read properly. There is a very annoying sound effect, presumably to indicate the planet starting to break up, but this can be dealt with by deleting a couple of lines. And I wasn't terribly pleased to be told "Learn to type" when I'd entered a command which was not misspelled in any way.
