Here is a game that I made a while back for a small project at university. It turned out to be a fun little game so I polished it up for submission to Newgrounds. Hope you like.

Not bad, annoying little twinkle tunes but an ok little buzz I guess. Level 5 was (for me unbeatable). Had the skill, but not enough for conserving fuel alas.

don't read the summary read the review DAMN IT!

this was 1 of the best games i ever played. but at lvl3 theres a bug that when i reach the goal i die i passed that lvl just once. but all my 5 belong to this.

good one

that was a neat game..... quite fun to play too. the graphics were very nice, good audio, good entertainment and your efforts were nice. i notice that this game here was for a university project a while back.... hope you got a good grade for it too.

Not too bad

I actually like the idea of having the two thrusters; it adds a certain level of mental difficulty. There are enough lunar lander clones out there. However, you need to make the gravity and inertia a little weaker and I think you'd have a pretty fun game. With each of these variables a little weaker, you can have more intricate levels. As is right now, you need too much time to decelerate, accelerate or change directions. Nice work though. And I love the retro graphics and sounds, by the way.

Neat game, but boy is it hard!

Okay, you said not to complain about the level of challenge in your game because it is supposed to be this hard. So can I complain about the controls? First off though, the highlights: I loved the retro graphics and sound, even the music, which surprised me. It was like playing an old arcade game. Great job there. But this game is made hard not by the tough levels but by the bizarre control scheme. Who ever thought that to fly up you had to press both the right and left arrow keys was a good idea? This makes the game nearly impossible to control, at least for me, because I am more used to Lunar Lander and the like, where you actually have a button to press that makes you fly upwards. Still, irritating control aside, I liked this game enough to give it my approval.
