Falcon Fail

Hi there,

Falcon Fail is a game I started because I read an Article in Wired: http://www.wired.com/2015/01/difficult-land-rocket

It made me want to try how hard it would be to land a Rocket compared to a Lunar Lander so I opened up my SDK and before you know I had the game mechanics working. At first I had 3 way control with a separate thrust but I found that having the thrust ignited at the same time as you steer (rotate) makes it much more fun. I posted this little bugger on game salades arcade and got some good response and kept some people from working playing it.

So I thought: "Lets skip a night and publish it on Google Play." I also made new artwork, changed some ColorSync and published it.

I got some great responds from total strangers who played it so next week I will port it to iPad and Phone. I believe it is worthy
I have already added something extra to make it even more fun.

Please watch the trailer and comment if you want.

At 1:16, it should be spelled "almost" not allmost.
