Your rocket ships are designed. Spaceflight. Exploring the solar system. Find out if you are a rocket scientist.
To build rocket ships, you can choose and connect parts. There are many options for rocket engines, fuel tanks and other widgets. Even powered wheels can be built into rovers. You only have your imagination.
You can blast off from any planet that you choose. Either you can fly through Venus’ intense atmosphere or take advantage of Mercury’s low gravity. You can fly around the sun to reach the far reaches in the solar system.
There are many challenges in the game. You can compete to see who can fly the furthest, use the most fuel and land on the moon the fastest.
The equations were written by Kepler 400 years ago. SimpleRockets models orbital physics using those equations. While having fun exploring the solar system, players will learn rocket science and astrodynamics. SimpleRockets is a great choice for classrooms or as a healthy alternative in the App Store’s slew of brainless games.
