Welcome to Robo Rocket Riders! You are an artificial intelligence tasked with piloting a rocket ship! Once you graduate flight school, shoot for the moon! Last one back from a round trip is a rotten egg!

Is the game too difficult for you? Let me know what is hard for you, and what you think would best fix it!

Happy Robot Day 2020! I started this project a couple days ago and after a couple of all nighters, I'm pretty happy with what I've got so far! The mechanics kind of feel like a 2d kerbal space program! I plan on updating with more features, minigames, medals, and leaderboards, so please leave suggestions and constructive feedback in your reviews!



Rocket Controls

  • S to fire the main thruster, A and D to fire the left and right thrusters (mobile players will have buttons on-screen)
  • Scroll wheel to zoom in/out
  • HINT: If you've landed but the game doesn't recognize it, make sure your ship isn't wiggling and do a few little hops :)

Sorting Sentries

  • Drag and drop the items into the corresponding color zones.


08/30/2020 version 1.0.5

  • Added distance indicator beneath the moon indicator arrow
  • Added clearer instructions in the flight school tutorial text

08/28/2020 version 1.0.4

  • Tweaked some values pertaining to high scores to prevent errors
  • Added new Lunar Landing Practice minigame. It won't unlock the moon landing achievement or post any high scores, you have to land on the moon from the main game for that.
  • More planes and asteroids will spawn. Fewer space stations will spawn.
  • I haven't been updating this game as often as puzzle crafter. I'm a little dry on inspiration so I'll mostly be focusing on squashing bugs and adding gameplay enhancements.

08/26/2020 version 1.0 - initial release!

  • An abundance of medals and high scores to pursue
  • Can you make it to the moon? Can you make it back?
  • Currently 2 minigames at launch, with more on the way soon!
  • 1.0.1 Hotfix - Hopefully fixed an issue with some leaderboards not posting. If you have issues with your high scores not posting please let me know. If you played before version 1.0.1 you might want to clear your save data.
  • 1.0.2 Hotfix - Added new medals, fixed localstorage conflict with my earlier game Puzzle Crafter
  • 1.0.3 Hotfix - Fixed Color 2 not coloring it's outline, Made it easier to land on the moon, added zoom buttons on-screen for PC players

great game, one thing you should fix, there is a little nook inbetween the out-of-bounds areas at the top, i managed to get out and now im flying through deep space. maybe something you should fix next update? also, i find it really hard to land on the moon, i did it once, but it was luck that saved me, maybe make that a bit easier? i absoloutley LOVE the music though, i get chill vibes from all of the music, so nice job on that! other than that, amazing game!
