Very good replica of the Atari Lunar Lander game! Although the left-right keys should be a bit bigger for better control, this is a faithful rendition of the arcade game that's only missing the big, solid, meaty throttle handle on the arcade cabinet. (I remember how the deep bass "thrumming" of the retro rockets would travel up your arm from that handle. Good times...) I even put the LEM down safely on the very first try, a true sign of a well-made game.

Ads interfere with the game The ads cover up the top part of the field of play - if you are high enough, you can't see your lander. The rotate clockwise / counterclockwise blue boxes, the just aren't very responsive. I find myself taping them, to no effect while my lander drifts towards and object, but I can't get my lander to turn so that I can alter my course. Uninstalled.

Challenging, interesting It's a fun challenge, and it's a good lesson in math: you control the force that the thrusters exert, which means controlling it's acceleration--not it's speed or position. So it serves as a good lesson in calculus.

Nice try, but no cigar. Controls dont work very well, and the LEM disappeas off screen so you have no idea where you are
