Be sure to check our new game, SimplePlanes. Build airplanes and test them with realistic physics and see how they fly. You can find it on the App Store now or check out the website at http://www.SimplePlanes.com
Design your own rocket ships. Blast off into space. Explore the solar system. See if you have what it takes to be a rocket scientist.
Choose and connect parts together to build rocket ships. You can choose from a variety of rocket engines, fuel tanks, and other gizmos. You can even build rovers with powered wheels. You are only limited by your imagination.
Blast off from any planet you want. You can fly through the intense atmosphere of Venus, or you can take advantage of the low gravity of Mercury. Whip around the sun and launch yourself out to the far reaches of the solar system.
Several challenges are built into the game so you can compete with other humans from around the world to see who can go the fastest, fly the farthest, orbit with the least amount of fuel, land on the moon, and so much more.
Kepler wrote the equations 400 years ago, and SimpleRockets uses those equations to model extremely realistic orbital physics. Players will learn about rocket science and astrodynamics while they are having a blast exploring the solar system. This makes SimpleRockets ideal for the classroom, or as a healthy alternative to the barrage of brainless games available on the App Store.
* Realistic rocket physics and orbital physics
* Sandbox mode
* Email your rocket to friends
What's New in Version 1.5.10
* Added a link to our new game, SimplePlanes. It's like SimpleRockets, but with airplanes. Build airplanes and test them with realistic physics and see how they fly. If you like SimpleRockets, then you will love SimplePlanes! You can find it on the App Store now!
Other features added in this update:
* Added ability to transfer RCS fuel while docked with a satellite
* Reduced RCS fuel consumption
* Increased max zoom distance in map view
Best Game Ever!!! Suggestion...
This is the best game ever! I really enjoy flying random rockets around, building space stations, and exploring the "smolar system". I bought this a month ago and it is still just as fun now! Definitely worth the $1.99 I paid for it. I do have a suggestion though... I think that rendezvousing with a satellite is way too hard. I either miss the satellite or run out of fuel before I can dock. Could you please make an "auto rendezvous" button (or something like that) that automatically takes your ship next to the satellite so building a station isn't so ridiculously hard?Thanks for reading this and I really love your game. Keep it up jundroo! 👍
P.S. Could we add some more parts maybe like a super huge fuel tank and engine?
Can you update how we can get parts to connect to multiple ways it only seems that I can connect one way so none of my rockets or satellites work the way I need them to. Second can there be a link we can click on within the game to download others rockets. Third can there be more parts to make the game more interesting for example maybe drills for rovers so we are able to put them into and inventory. Forth upgradable parts so we can find items on different planets and sell them. Maybe rather then just challenges maybe have a campaign. If you could make these updates that would be awesome.
I actually found this game on our school iPads and decided to give it a try. I was surprised to find that it was incredibly fun to play and show off. They have a decently active Reddit page. I bought this game on my iPad about two months ago and it is still fun. I would like to see more parts in the future and maybe some other addition *cough* Multiplayer *cough*. Overall, this is a great game and can be pretty easy as long as you understand astrophysics (Which sounds harder than it is) and remember that more fuel isn't always a good thing.
