Game Details

The goal of this game is to successfully land a spacecraft on the surface of the moon with a limited amount of fuel. Your controls show the craft's altitude, horizontal speed, vertical speed, and fuel level. A high-pitched beep indicates that the fuel level is almost empty, whereupon you can add more coins to continue landing the craft.

The production run was cut short for first Asteroids machines.
