    Haha! It takes impossible skill. The Blue Danube soundtrack is apt, but I would prefer 'beeps' and 'murps'. There was a strange bug that froze the screen, but that only happened once. All in all, this is a terrific addition to the on-the-go-retro-gamer's library.

    Oh wow, this game is crazy hard, and the games a little buggy.

    They're trying to port Lunar Lander and for that i give kudos.

    It needs a few things:

    1 - ditch the classical music (?!) and give us thrust sound, beeps and murps as mentioned, successful landing sound, etc...

    2 - it starts out in medium zoom instead of wide zoom. big mistake. i found that if i thrust a bit from the start it pans out to a wide view like in Lunar Lander - starting the round from this view is a must!

    3 - ship only rotates as far as 45 degrees on each side. this needs to go to almost 90 degrees.

    4 - add feet to the lander. i appreciate the retro grafx but the ship could use a little more detail

    5 - the ship feels a drop light to me - but they came close to the physics of the original (i have Atari Classics Evolved on my PSP and will play it tonight for comparison)

    6 - more varied landscape with harder landing pads available worth more points.

    with these simple fixes this game will go from 2.5 stars to 4 easily.

    if you like Lunar Lander - for .99 this is worth it. i'd love to see these fixes implemented. it's going in my review.
