App description: Be sure to check our new game, SimplePlanes. Build airplanes and test them with realistic physics and see how they fly. You can find it on the App Store now or check out the website at http://www.SimplePlanes.com

Design your own rocket ships. Blast off into space. Explore the solar system. See if you have what it takes to be a rocket scientist.

CREATE
Choose and connect parts together to build rocket ships. You can choose from a variety of rocket engines, fuel tanks, and other gizmos. You can even build rovers with powered wheels. You are only limited by your imagination.

EXPLORE
Blast off from any planet you want. You can fly through the intense atmosphere of Venus, or you can take advantage of the low gravity of Mercury. Whip around the sun and launch yourself out to the far reaches of the solar system.

CHALLENGES
Several challenges are built into the game so you can compete with other humans from around the world to see who can go the fastest, fly the farthest, orbit with the least amount of fuel, land on the moon, and so much more.

ROCKET SCIENCE
Kepler wrote the equations 400 years ago, and SimpleRockets uses those equations to model extremely realistic orbital physics. Players will learn about rocket science and astrodynamics while they are having a blast exploring the solar system. This makes SimpleRockets ideal for the classroom, or as a healthy alternative to the barrage of brainless games available on the App Store.

FEATURES
* Realistic rocket physics and orbital physics
* Sandbox mode
* Leaderboards
* Email your rocket to friends

Awesome update. More missions. IAP rocket skins (that are purely cosmetic). I instantly bought all that are available to support future projects because this is one of the best games on the AppStore.

Just bought it but it's 1.49 down the pan...

Doesn't work right on an ipad air, your rocket isn't shown when you takeoff, camera is underground.

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

It's a bug and the dev is trying to get a new update through to fix it.

Please be patient, this game is worth it.

Yep +1. Well worth waiting for.

If this sorry planet really is dieing I now at least know the math to reach escape velocity ! Now to gather materials .... Lol.

Just achieving orbit then gaining orbit round the moon and landing is one mission. It is immensely satisfying achieving after many attempts and rocket designs. The sandbox mode and the now more varied rocket components offer up endless possibility.

I have not scratched the surface of what's here with an entire sandbox solar system to muck about in. The extra rocket parts and skins just make an already awesome game more enjoyable.

This game is amazing if you like space and physics and it just dropped to 69p. Absolute bargain for a game that I will never delete from my device.

Ok so the price dropped to free for one of the best games on AppStore imo. No excuse for anyone not to give this a whirl now if you like physics and space and rockets !

Edit : Am I the only one who loves this game ?? I just realised I made the last three posts in the thread.
