Moon Lander




Originally written for the Sinclair Spectrum by Robert Erskine, and converted for the BBC Micro by Colin Tanner. Published in the book Sixty Programs For The BBC Micro by Pan Books Ltd, in association with Personal Computer News. The book contains the following description:

This is an up-market real-time lander program which gives you an opportunity to grapple with the problems which face a space-lagged cruiser commander returning home after a long haul. The object of the exercise is to land your craft on the chillingly small landing-pad at the bottom of the screen. Precision is the name of the game, because if your rate of descent is greater than -5 you and your crew are gonners. A word of warning: if you over-fire your rockets you'll disappear into hyperspace until returning back on screen, plummeting to your doom unless you've been doing some nifty blind flying to slow your descent.
