Customer Reviews

Nothing to do plus learning👎🏻

All I do is nothing. All I do is pick one of the three for example if I pick the middle one, then it will show me a lot of different missions, then I choose a mission, then I pick a rocket, then I build it, then I click launch and it will launch... And all I get to do is click on parts for them to go away.....then I just watch it fly. And it looks like it wants to teach you stuff like why, I don't really like learning sometimes. So don't waste your time on this.😒😒😒👎🏻

Not bad

This app isn't bad for people who are interested in pre rocket science. It would be. But it would be cool if you were to make an app for actual rocket science tutorials and 3d rocket building and launching. Like kerbal space program

To easy

This is a cool app but it's too easy and consists of the same thing in every option u choose. It would be ok for a little kid but not really anyone over the age of 10
