Descender - a lunar lander style game

Hi all,

I'm the developer for Descender - a game I built with inspiration from games like the classic Lunar Lander, and Limbo's art style.

I created the mechanic for Descender almost a year ago, but sat on the project for almost a year without progressing it.

I finally got some inspiration to finish the game, and have released the game initially for Android 6.0+.
You basically descend a cave system with limited thruster power and health. Thrusters regenerate slowly if you don't use them, and you lose health from impacting walls, enemies, or traps.

The first cave segment is always static, but the following segments are generated randomly.
