Beautiful, Relaxing, Addictive - I've been playing this on Windows since it's release over a year ago. I liked it enough to buy it again just for the convenience of playing on the "Mac side" of my iMac. The Moon is offered with three maps made increasingly difficult through more extreme terrain. Missions are pretty repetitive each offering one of three goals: Survey, Cargo Transport and Lost Cargo Retrieval. The game randomly generates one of the three and the player can either accept the given mission or skip it for another. Of the three mission types, Lost Cargo is the hardest and by far the most fun. Sometimes the cargo is lost deep in the shadows of a valley and requires a keen eye out the window and a good ear tuned to the sonar-like transponder to find. You learn Newtonian physics pretty quickly, especially with the initial lander and its minimal thrust and lack of stabilisation. The first hour or so will result in lots of lander parts strewn about the lunar surface. Once you get it, its an easy grind to upgrade rank and lander capability to the point where you can fly it like a plane-like zooming around the moon with gusto. Mars adds aerodynamic drag, dust storms and greater gravity. This is not necessarily a game you will play for hours on end--at least I don't. But its perfect for a fun 15-20 minutes between moments of productivity.

RE: One of the Coolest Sims on The Mac Period! - I'm playing this on a 2013 MacBook Pro with no problems. It's wicked fun with a very very steep learning curve. I'm using the keyboard, and since Xmas have advanced to the rank of Capt. It is a totally unforgiving sim, but very rewarding once you complete some of the missions. You can record video for playback and study. For 9 bucks, the developer could of easily ask for 3x as much. Watch all the training video and RTFM …

I've come back nearly 2 years after my 1st review. Yes, I still dig this sim, and fly it often, however, the developer is no longer doing updates to the App Store Version. So, if you purchase, please be aware of this info.

Game Freezes on MacBook Pro - This game freezes every time I load it on my MacBook Pro - beware! The screenshots look great, but I can’t get it to load on Mac OS X - El Capitan.

Review by d-dog33

The Most Realistic Lunar Space Craft Game... - I see some are having game stability issues, but I haven’t experienced any problems (Basic off the shelf - MacBook Pro) That said… Game is hands down the most realistic lunar space craft game I’ve played to date . Once you get a handle on the controls & how to navigate the weightless environment. For me -the game delivers.
