Earth resources are dwindling and tensions are rising around the globe. All nations of the world have united in a historic effort to colonize the worlds of the Inner Solar System and bring our civilization into the Solar Era. As the absolute best of the best, bravest of the brave and most awesome of the awesome, you are the humanity's best and last hope. No pressure.

Bring colonists and establish bases on worlds of the Inner Solar system by completing each mission. As you progress, unlock additional parts and skins for your customizable lander spaceship: parts make it possible to finish missions that were impossible before, skins help you express yourself through designing your very own lander craft. Max out re-playable missions to gain bonuses to your lander attributes, a little something that goes a long way towards the end of the journey.

Real physics drive the core of this experience, so your lander configuration matters a lot, especially side thruster placement and angle. Experiment beyond the default configuration to get the maximum out of your lander craft.

Procedurally generated missions offer a gameplay experience where each time you play a mission, challenge level is the same, but the actual experience is different, always keeping you on your toes, honing your lander piloting skills and pushing them forward.

Visit 6 alien worlds, recreated in stunning realism and beauty of all the worlds of our Inner Solar System. Each environment has been faithfully recreated to resemble the world you are landing on, both on graphical and audio side. Let the award nominated visuals of this game bring you one step closer to these distant worlds.

Immerse yourself in the award nominated soundtrack that interactively follows your journey in every stage of the game. Soundtrack has been carefully composed and tailored to complement your adrenaline filled journey and leave you with a memorable experience.

What’s New

Version 1.0.1

- On older devices that have an A7 or an A8 processor and a battery that is not in an optimal state, the game would close instantly after the intro. This is now fixed for the majority of devices that fit into that category.
- Devices that fit into that same category are now restricted from enabling the "60 FPS Mode".

- Auto-orientation is now functional on all notchless devices. On devices with a notch, orientation remains locked to landscape left.
- Improvements to the home screen icon.

This game will test your skills. In that sense, it has an old-school arcade feel (you can adjust the difficulty, though). It’s like a lunar lander game on steroids in the future. The mechanics are simple but executed beautifully. The most difficult part is the actual landing, but you’ll eventually get the feel for it. Screw up the landing, and it’s mission restart (which really gets your heart pumping). Graphically, it’s gorgeous. I love everything I’m seeing and hearing. So glad this is on iOS. If you’re on the fence you shouldn’t be; there’s nothing like it on iOS and it’s awesome and worth every penny. Thanks, devs!

🚀 Mission Accepted...

🚀✨Wow! 🚀✨Experience the tense moments where you must precisely land space crafts and payloads around the inner solar system. The main game is about timing a space craft’s thruster and stabilizers to avoid asteroids and land safely. The landings are cinematic and fun yet still challenging (there’s some humor to messing up and watching your craft spring leaks or even explode 💥). Love the original soundtrack that sets the tone for the whole game.

Thank you very much!


Nice, really Nice!

This is a great twist on Lunar Landers!

The visuals are Pure Eye Candy! It’s fast paced with a cool storyline. I really love how difficult it can get landing in zero gravity. Sometimes you have to really maneuver your Lander at high angles of attack to get where you need to be!

You also get to choose different skins/colors for your Lander as well as getting to choose different parts for each mission. Cool stuff!

The music is top notch & really adds to the atmosphere. Truly a fine tuned piece of mobile gaming!

Hope to see more from this dev! Maybe even a SolarExplorerNewDawn Version 2.0!!!

Thank you so much! This means more than I can properly explain.

As for more adventures, if mission "New Dawn" proves to be a success, UESA does have a plan to colonize the entire Solar System, tame the Sun and quite a lot more. But this first step is the most important one, in so many ways. Pioneering hero pilots like yourself bring us closer to broader dreams. I salute you!
