Tilt Lander for Android Publisher's description
Tilt the phone to rotate the lander; touch the screen to thrust.
Tilt the phone to rotate the lander; touch the screen to thrust. Land on the green landing pad, with your speed under control -- and without running out of fuel.
This app is a minimal enhancement of the standard Lunar Lander demo that comes with android just adding the accelerometer control -- it's not intended to be anything fancy.
What People are Saying
- "Great for filling a few spare minutes"... yup, that's about it.
How to Play
The screen displays two important meters at the top:
-At the top left is a green bar showing your remaining fuel. When this gets to zero, your engines can't be used.
-To the right of it is a bar showing your speed. It must be within the bright green area when you land, otherwise you're going to fast and will crash.
Press "up" -- or roll the trackball up -- to start a game; in play, touch the screen to start the engines, and tilt your phone to rotate the lander. Bear in mind that when you fire the engines, you're pushed in the direction you're pointing; so you will need to turn the lander to push yourself in the right direction.
You must land on the green landing pad, and you must be moving slowly when you do -- the speedometer must be down in the bright green zone.
The menu gives you some options, including three difficulty levels. You can also invert the way the tilt control works.
Bear in mind that your fuel is limited -- if you try to hover around while you get your strategy straight, you will run out. You need to think fast and be quick with your finger.
And good luck
