Spaceflight Simulator 4+
Rocket science made simple!
Stefo Mai Morojna
This game is about space explorations, its about building your own rocket, and going out to explore and see whats out there, all while following real life physics.
• Realistically scaled universe, with planets up to hundreds of kilometers in size and millions of kilometers of space between them.
• Realistic orbital mechanics
• Open universe, if you see something in the distance, you can go there, no limits, no invisible walls.
Fixed bug that teleports players to the sun
Fixed terrain sinking on load
Fixed old saves compatibility, old parts are replaced by a placeholder
Fixed loading menu
Fixed terrain bumps bug
Fixed rockets velocity at launch bug
Fixed arrow-keys disappearing
I plan to do weekly updates from now on

Great Handheld Rocket Science
This game is an awesome space flight simulator. I downloaded the free game and have played it for a week now. I was looking for something similar to “Kerbal Space Program” which I play on my laptop. This was the answer for my IPhone. The free version has a great level of creativity involved and if I continue to play this enough I will definitely purchase the full version.
What I like about this game is that it’s got just the right amount of controls for a Mobile app. It’s just enough to feel challenging but not so much that I’m overwhelmed. I love that I can transfer fuel to different modules! It’s perfect for creating a space station fueling center. This 2D flight sim has helped me understand space flight a little bit better. So when I go back to playing KSP, a much more complex 3D space sim, I think I’ll actually be able to make it to the “Mun” and back. And make docking maneuvers with other ships!
If you like science games like KSP then this is a great find. My only wishes for this game are that an option to switch between space ships is added to the close up view and not just the map. There are also some minor bugs that needed to be addressed; app closing itself, ships undocking and unable to fly away from space stations, ships clipping through each other and getting stuck. These errors are small and easy to overcome. Just make sure you save before making risky maneuvers.
Extremely fun game, super addictive. Finally a game that has a wonderful sandbox mode where you have few limitations to what you build. It would be nice to see a bigger building space, and different settings, like instead of just zero gravity, maybe include Jupiter’s gravity, and maybe add in a small game mode where you get to do missions assigned by “NASA” I’m game space exploration company. I really enjoy the game, but it would be nice to see some more parts, maybe add some of the parts that were on the Saturn V heavy launch rocket, and like maybe some parts to build the Space shuttles like the Discovery, and game modes like dealing with engine failure or parts falling off and teaching how to improve tactics to land safely after vehicle failures. Maybe even additional stuff, like a launch station and a launch tower, and then a short animation of an astronaut getting out of the capsule. Also like when it’s in space, the sound of the rocket dying down and sounding more like a revved engine when in space because up close in space you can hear, like in the capsule, but outside, it just barely sounds like a rumble. I love everything about the game, and any improvement is a good improvement, keep up the great work with the game. I know it would take a while if you were to take any of these suggestions, but if you do, it would be amazing. But by far, more parts is what I’m looking forward to the most.
Really well made Sim, expansion pack is worth it
I really enjoy this game a lot – I spend exorbitant amounts of time studying aerospace and orbital mechanics because I would love to study astrobiology once I finish my bio degree. After studying these concepts for a while, a friend recommended Kerbal Space Program to me and I fell in love. Realistic game engine, great stuff. The problem is I hated car/subway rides when I had a new idea for how to approach a maneuver like a gravity assist or something that I wanted to try, so I took to the App Store and ended up here. It’s a great little thing to play on the go. I love seeing little blurbs at the end of all of the things I’ve done like landing on the moon or orbiting mars, it’s really nice, and the mechanics are real nice. I also love that there’s no need to worry about stabilization, especially in atmosphere while trying to ascend because that would be way too hard on a phone. Overall, this game is perfectly suited to play on a phone and really good if you want to dabble in orbital mechanics and vessel aerodynamics (aka “rocket science”) and have fun at the same time!
The one suggestion I would have would be to add an interface that lets you view your thrust to weight ratio and deltaV so you know approximately how much further you can travel at any given time. Aside from that, great stuff I love it!
