This is Amazing!!!! But...
As an enthusiast, this is an amazing App. There was a distinct challenge at first, and there is a distinct learning curve to it (I actually pulled a Niel Armstrong and crashed the Flying Bedstead!). But once I got the hang of it, it was great and fun! The way they turned the different phases into a game was excellent. It would have been awesome if they made one for the launch, but you can't get everything you want. I got really scared during the reentry, though, as the control scheme did rear its ugly clunky head and almost killed me! However, the fact that the mission profile disappeared the second the phase finished loading really irked me.
Despite all this, I am really enjoying this app. For those who are enthusiasts of all things NASA, this is something that I would definetly recommend. For those who aren't, well...
...resistence is futile.
great game that interacts with real video from the apollo11 missions. when playing, it is like taking you back in time...superb audio and amazing game graphics. controls are hard at first, but with a little bit of practice, you will get the hang of it.
one exciting game play was when you control the capsule re-entering earth and you have to guide it to a landing zone after the parachutes launch; right after touchdown, real video from the mission took over, and I felt as though i was there when the capsule hit the waters. what a great feeling.....awesome gameplay. I give it 6 stars out of 5......:)
Lunar landing level too difficult; always down to half fuel before even getting within a few hundred meters of the first waypoint (which are too far apart). Either reduce number of waypoints, waypoint distance, or fuel consumption. Also needs option for traditional controls than tilting the iPhone.
