Does the ship look like a couch to anyone else?

I think it's more fun imagining it that way:

Wow, the background art in this game is great. The screenshots don't do it justice.

It's obviously a lunar lander game, so you either like that or you don't. Those typically aren't my favorite kind of game, but I actually really like this one. It's well-polished and feels immersive.

The only thing I don't care for is how long it takes to first launch your ship when you start a level. Just seems like unnecessary waiting. Other than that, I'd say definitely give this a try.

Thanks ThumbSnail, much appreciated

I will speed up the waiting launch countdown in a future update as many people pointed this out.

Screenshots remind me of the game "Limbo"

I love Limbo indeed , but the design was more a reference to the original Lunar Lander

This is nice! Graphics and sound are minimal but effective and atmospheric. I'm just over half way through the 24 levels and new elements are being gradually added. Controls are really good and there is a fair level of skill required to land without damage. Your performance is related to how intact you keep your ship; land too heavily and you'll damage a "leg" and lose a star rating. It's easy to lose control if you're not careful and the landing mechanic adds a little to other entries in this genre. Adverts are present and reasonably annoying. There seems to be no current option to pay to remove them, which is certainly something I would do if the developer continues to add to the game as promised. What's there at the moment is good, with great potential to be expanded on. I feel there may be more elements in later levels I have yet discovered. This is an easy recommendation for the price (zero)!

Just struggling with the last level. Other elements were added which freshened things up a bit.................this one might take some time. Really enjoyable.

@johnsmith27 - Thanks for posting a gif of a 4 star landing. I couldn't figure out why I'd only get three stars, but now I see that I was still landing too hard.

I've played about half the levels. I, too, enjoy the additional elements (such as the rotating bars that block your path) as well as the general increase in difficulty as the stages progress.
