Lander

Lander


Lander is an Android port of the 1990 game by the same name for Windows 3.1.

It is similar to the classic Lunar Lander game that everyone knows. One difference that sets Lander apart from the rest is that it uses side thrusters to change horizontal velocity and doesn't rotate (though v1.1.0 added that option). In my opinion, the style is easier to learn and more appealing than most Lunar Lander games. It can even be a bit addictive. With each round lasting just a few seconds, you don't need to decide if you have enough time to play it.

Features:
-Randomized terrain
-Touchscreen controls with custom scale and opacity
-Customizable keys (physical keyboard/D-Pad)
-Adjustable gravity, fuel, and thrust
-Improvements can be toggled (mainly for nostalgia)
-Gameplay modifications (unlocked for $1)

PERMISSIONS:
Market billing service - Used to unlock gameplay modifications with in-app purchase.

Tested in emulators to work great on Android 1.5+ as well as QVGA (tiny) to WXGA (tablet) screens! Also tested extensively on Motorola Droid, T-Mobile G1, and Logitech Revue.

For this port, permission and v1.3 source code has been provided by the original developer, George Moromisato (neurohack.com).

Please rate/comment! Just keep in mind that this is a near exact port of a classic game with some tweaks and modifications. That said, I ask that you don't rate negatively just because you don't like the old style.

PROBLEMS:
Please email me or submit to the issue tracker if you have problems! The issue tracker, which can also be used for suggestions, is available at http://tracker.pilot51.com.

Full changelog, original Windows downloads, and other details are available at http://lander.pilot51.com.

Recent changes:
-Fix crash when opening Options or exiting in Android 4.0.3 & 4.1.
-Fix crash when hiding Action Bar on tablets.

Great Game Not sure why people don't like it. This is a fun little game, especially when using a physical keyboard (Actually makes it a lot easier). I definitely recommend this game for everyone who enjoyed the good old days with this game ;)

Great throwback but the horizontal controls should be further from the vertical control so that they can be controlled with separate hands.
