Land a rocket on a planet





You must land your rocket on the planet's surface. Select your planet. Their gravity varies, so be careful.
Gravity will make your rocket fall downwards, but it will crash if you are going too fast. Slow it down by moving the mouse onto the Thrust pad (you don't need to click). If you have too much thrust, the rocket will start going upwards! The Thrust pad will not work if the rocket is off the top of the screen (although the rocket is still moving, and will eventually fall downwards again).
You can also select a level of difficulty (which is how fast you can hit the planet without crashing) and whether you have a fuel limit.
