Conduct a safe landing on moon's surface using the spaceship's rocket engine and attitude control thrusters.
Try to save fuel and do the landing as soft as possible.
Use arrow keys:
up / down to increase / decrease thrust
left / right to rotate (attitude control)

Spaceship dynamics are modelled in a physically meaningful way.
There is a high score list to compete with others.
