Moonbase: Lander

By The Ant Ranch

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Have you got what it takes to become a Lunar Pilot?

Your PodHopper™ is little more than a seat, a fuel tank and control paddle! You need a steady hand and iron will to ride this flying bomb!

Moonbase: Lander is the stylish accelerometer-based moon lander game for the iPhone and iPod Touch using realistic physics simulation and stunning full 3D backgrounds.

Join the Moonbase Lunar Pilot Training Program. Increasingly difficult terrain will challenge your skill and nerves! Discover alien technology and military hardware to enhance your PodHopper™. Land carefully for the highest point value. Can you qualify as a Pilot before you run out of fuel?

Leveraging the power of the Ageia PhysX™ engine, the simulation game play in Moonbase: Lander uses one of the best physics engines available. The mass and gravity are set to simulate a real landing on the moon. The backgrounds are a stunning full 3D, with the moon herself supplying the texture. Coded in the powerful and clean Unity3D game development tool, this is the best (in our humble opinion) lander game available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

- Addictive Gameplay
- Accelerometer based tilt controls
- Accurate power curve driving the thrust of the PodHopper™
- Physics simulation using the Ageia PhysX™ engine
- High quality graphics, lighting & effects
- Stunning 3D backgrounds

Like it!!

Bought the free app and had to upgrade to the full version! This game is sweet! I was honestly expecting it be bad [I can't use the word that rhymes with gas] (cummon? a lander game?) but NO! It's SWEET!! It looks great, sounds great, feels great. 3D bg's. Ambient track. Interactive light and explosions! The physics are really tight & it's tough. But you feel great when you touch down without making a crater! GET THIS GAME! I can't stop playing it!

Not good control

The game has good graphics and good original emulation of the old arcade game.

One serious flaw is the iPhone tilt control. -At the least- there should be an option for touch buttons or something else rather than a fuzzy, no-feel tilt control.

Great game, crummy crummy crummy control. I'd give it 5 stars, but only 2 for the lack of any tactile control what so ever. I'll be glad to upgrade to 5 stars if they fix this issue.


Addictevely frustrating but so fun! It's a little too easy to die for me.
