App description: Spacewalking for iPhone and iPod touch 3rd gen and above.

Appadvice: "The level of detail and realism is extraordinary, and you won't find anything else like it on the App Store"

Toucharcade: "I'm going home, There is the Moon, There is North America, Let's aim for South Carolina and hope for the best"

Pocketgamer: "Astronaut: Spacewalk is described as "a highly realistic astronaut jetpack simulator" which, let's be honest, sounds cool as hell."

iFanzine: "Theres no doubting that Astronaut: Spacewalk is one of the most difficult iOS games to get into, but once you survive the learning phase, you might be surprised at how hooked you are."

Modojo: "Astronaut simulator takes players to final frontier"

Slidetoplay: "Maybe the realistic-looking iOS simulator Astronaut: SpaceWalk will help inspire tomorrow's private-sector astronauts."

Playscifi: "Id like you all to know that I think its a wonderfully authentic game (real spacewalkers may beg to differ), one that is as much as simulation of orbital space manoeuvring as it is a casual zero-gravity obstacle course."

The-app-shack: "Astronaut Spacewalk is really less of a game, and more of a challenging experience."


Astronaut Spacewalk is a highly realistic astronaut jetpack simulator. Fly the Manned Manouvering Unit from the Space Shuttle cargo bay to several satellites, align into position to make repairs and dock back into the Shuttle.

Fly the jetpack in 20 daring missions where you have to rendezvous with different satellites from the smaller TDRS and Solar Maximum, medium sized like the Magellan and Galileo probes, to the big Skylab, Hubble telescope and russian MIR station.

Up for a Challenge?

Pretty to look at but difficult to master. Flying in space is not like flying a plane. A small wrong movement can send you in a collision path and the stress of how to quickly recover while keeping the valuable electricity and fuel resources.

Challenge yourself to master Inertial Flight in space where there is no up or down and there is nowhere to hang on to if you loose control.

The difference between life and death is the oxygen in your suit and the nitrogen in your jetpack.

It might be beautiful but who said that floating in space was easy?

- For a better experience read the "Operation Manual"

- Note that the control buttons are not the crosses. The buttons are the empty spaces between the crosses.

Hi geoelectric

Sorry you got it for the wrong platform but as you say you will get it for the iPad with the update.

Yeah, I totally forgot about the maybe iPad update for this one... Though I wouldn't be surprised if it couldn't happen. I don't think this one sold too well, unfortunately. =o/

that's because nowadays iPhone-only games don't do very well

Universal binaries are the way to go. I bet if he updated it with iPad support it would get more attention

Astronaut Training

Hi.

I have just released "Astronaut Training".

It is a free taste of "Astronaut Spacewalk", a simulator of the Manned Manuvering unit but this time it is in the Nasa Neutral Buoyancy Lab swimming pool instead of Space.

Some people say that the handling of Astronaut Spacewalk takes 15 minutes to get the hang of so now you can try and master it in the safety of earth.

I hope you like it.

Right on! I hope this helps get this game some more attention! It's definitely one of the few titles I consider a real 'Hidden Gem' - once you get comfortable with the controls, the game is a blast. It's definitely worth putting a little bit of time into to learn.

Whatever happened to the standalone Astronaut Training app? It's no longer available in the U.S. AppStore. :\

No idea. It's definitely been pulled. :/

Gonna edit the thread title to avoid confusion. If it comes back, I'll revert the changes.
