Guide Flip, The Last Rocket, through 64 rooms of spikes, fans, mines, flamejets and more. Collect all the scattered Memory Gears to help AMI, the onboard Autonomous Mechanical Intelligence, escape before the ship falls into a star! Featuring 8-bit graphics and 12 original chiptunes with multiple endings and challenging achievements.


Some (but not all) retina MacBook Pro players are reporting crashes and hangs (usually with sound but scrambled graphics). I'm trying to identify and fix the issue but without a retina MacBook Pro it's slow going. Sorry for the (temporary) inconvenience!

“It’s almost worth it for the art style alone, but fortunately there’s a smart, well-designed puzzle game coated in that sharp aesthetic.” —Kotaku

“The Last Rocket will try your reflexes and test your wits, at the same time it steals your heart, girds your determination, and forces you to become a better player.”

“Retro visuals have become such a staple they're beginning to feel like they're modern again, but Shaun Inman's The Last Rocket proves it's not just about the look, it's about the entire aesthetic of the game, from the simple and easy to pick up gameplay to the sounds coming out it — retro is a design principle, not just a pair of pixilated pants.” —Touch Arcade

“The Last Rocket is a charming distraction with a wonderful retro-chic art style.” —Pocket Gamer

“The game really shines in its later stages, when players must combine both brains and fast fingers.” —IGN

“It’s like a Game Boy Advance gem you just discovered.” —Adam “Atomic” Saltsman, Creator of Canabalt

I love the last rocket. - I just wish you would release a nice level editor to the public so that I didn't have to hack plists!

Locks up every time I launch it - Worked the first time I played, but since then, it's locked up every time I try launching it. Not only that, it seems to lock up my entire system until I'm able to quit out of it.
