    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.
