Astronaut. Spacewalk simulator

A friend of mine has been working of this: A Manned Manouvering Unit sim, coming soon, for iPhone and iPod touch.







Flying this thing around is surprisingly rewarding. The best bit is the attention to detail on those models. He is not cutting any corners!





More stuff on his blog, if you are interested in his day-to-day coding adventures...

Love it!

Although the cherry on the cake would be iPad 3 support

Looks neat, will you be able to pilot the shuttle as well?

I'm afraid not, but I guess you'll be able to fix it. And you'll be doing plenty of flying from and to it. It's the centre-piece of the game as far as I know:

Brilliant idea. Reminds me of a C64 game I had (simply called Space Shuttle, I think) where you had to design, build and manage a space station.

The graphic is great, but I can't understand how to control the character.
