Apollo "Eagle" is a simulation of the final twelve minutes of the landing of "Eagle", the Lunar Module from Apollo 11. This was the "Powered Descent".
The key is to lose the forward velocity before pitching over and landing vertically. For most of the descent the throttle is at 100%.
By adjusting the throttle and pitch you can land safely. As fuel is used up, the mass of the spacecraft correctly reduces. Ideally, you need to have your altitude and forward rates less than 10 fps (feet per second). Altitude and rates are in feet as these units were used on the original landing.
If you fail to land successfully you can use the time slider to rewind to an earlier point in the flight. You can also pause the simulation. The landing info button shows basic information about how to conduct the landing. This will also pause the simulation.
The home button will return you to the title screen.
You can attempt a full landing or select a practice version. The resume option will return to the previous full landing attempt. The
accelerometer changes your view point.

Try this game as went good go for landing, success land 1st time as fuel just few sec left!!!!! Beware that fuel is easy ran out!!!
This is a great addictive little game. I finished the landing a while back and was just messing about and trying to get as much forward velocity as possible while coming as low as possible. I got to within 100 ft and was going so fast that i needed to be pointed 180 degrees downward to keep myself from rising up. When my fuel cut i rose like the devil and rose to about 100 miles. Try this.
I do like this sim. I like to try and beat my best score. It would be also nice to have it optimised for the iPad mini. 😉
