Lol, was always intending to rate this as interesting but flawed, since I had only tried it with my joystick. With a joystick, the control rates are wonky, and you're missing out on a bunch of HOTAS style interface control you get with a controller. Just tried it with a generic Xbox 360 controller and it's GREAT! Flies nice and the interactions in the cockpit with a Track IR and the controller are fantastic. Highly recommended now, but understand that it seems to be built and tested mainly with a controller in mind (I don't like keyboard/mouse with this or Kerbal type games either), so be sure to try it with your controller of choice.

Lunar Flight is a game that one can easily become lost in. I find space and extra-terrestrial exploration to be a fascinating subject, and being able to explore the lunar landscape in such a detailed and physics strong game allows me to experience that, in some small sense, in person. When starting out, and learning the controls, flying even the most mundane mission is extremely challenging. After several hours of practice you can become proficient in the basic flight skills which can lead to some further exploration of the various lunar bases, lunar surface, and your ability as a lunar pilot. The game keeps things interesting as the player can fly back and forth from various bases, accepting missions to deliver goods, exploring areas of the moon, or recovering lost items. You are paid for your efforts resulting in further upgrades, maps to unlock (including Mars), and various achievements. The game can be very challenging and offers its players variable environmen modifiers especially when on Mars.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy flight simulations and/or space travel though I would strongly suggest preparing yourself by purchasing an applicable joystick of some type.

I've had this gem for almost 3 years through several iterations (don't know why my game time is so low). Despite being published over four years ago the dev keeps adding to it and making it better! It's rare to see a Developer this dedicated to their product!

He is now working hard implementing Oculus (VR) support. As if the game wasn't great enough already it is quite something to sit in the module in VR! Even if you don't have a VR HMD (YET!) this sim is still well worth the asking price. There's even a motion module being developed by the folks who made simtools so you can only imagine how sweet this is going to be with full VR immersion and motion!

This game is one of those 'must try' oculus experiences. It'll take your breath away. I feel like there's alot more to be done with it, but it is just awesome. Probably boring on a regular display, and not much to do except for cargo missions, but I actually did feel like a cargo pilot on mars!

Lunar Flight is a beautiful game to play in virtual reality. Once you figure out the somewhat involved method to take off, traverse to the next checkpoint and land safely then you will start getting lost for hours building up experience on the lunar maps. After that, you upgrade your craft and attempt more complicated travel maneuvers involving axis rotation that reduce fuel use and speeds up mission times.

While many VR games are more fun standing up, this game improves with sitting down and taking your time. Outside of multiplayer combat which I have not done, there's little need for twitch style gameplay. Take it slow and have a blast with the relaxing gameplay (well, relaxing till you actually have to slow descent and land correctly).

Note : 3/5
Voici un jeu vidéo indé qui a de quoi rebuter le joueur moderne. Sur le même principe que Lunar Lander (pour les – de 30 ans, recherche Google ; les autres, vous avez peut-être essayé un dérivé ou au moins entendu parler), vous dirigez un cockpit spatial et essayez de faire des alunissages en gérant la gravité, l’apesanteur et votre stock de carburant. Pourquoi est-ce rebutant ? Parce que ce jeu demande une patience en or, que seuls les personnes nées avant Internet sont encore capables de déployer au prix d’une gymnastique mentale (on ne s’en rend pas compte consciemment mais nous sommes devenus excessivement impatients). Pour égayer ce principe, vous avez la possibilité de remplir des missions tels que le transport de matières d’une base A à une base B, la détection d’un cargo perdu à l’aide d’un radar d’approche, ou la transmission de données sur un point précis de la carte où il faudra occuper une position stationnaire en vol. Musiques planantes et voix de « contrôleurs de bases spatiales » pour le côté auditif, malheureusement vite redondants. Au niveau graphique, le jeu se déroulant sur la Lune et sur Mars, difficile de rendre ça attrayant et pourtant, le concepteur y est bien parvenu. Côté maniabilité… Eh bien, soit vous êtes un poulpe et vous saurez avancer tout en inclinant votre vaisseau dans tous les sens, soit vous vous la jouerez façon FPS à 8 touches… Ce n’est pas évident au premier abord parce que les jeux nécessitant autant de commandes se font rares. Mon cœur me dit que ce jeu, une fois apprivoisé, est sympathique mais objectivement, il ne peut que s’adresser à des passionnés d’astrophysique ou à des joueurs tolérants voulant s’essayer à des concepts exotiques.

C'est très réaliste et très agréable à jouer. L'ambiance sonore est parfaite, les graphismes sont fins.
Je n'ai pas encore découvert tout le jeu, les missions sur les 4 maps différentes dont la dernière et la plus difficile se trouve sur Mars ou la gravité et plus forte et où soufflent des bourrasques de vent... Bref, c'est un jeu que je recommande.

To start off - if you currently have an Oculus Rift, stop reading and purchase this game right now... It's ok, I'll wait for you to do it.

Done? Good, because this game currently has the best native support for VR available right now. A perfectly realized virtual cockpit with great functionality and UI suited for VR. The sense of immersion is quite spectacular, and the game itself is also very fun.

For those without a rift, the game is quite good as well. It places you on the moon (or mars) in control of a lander type craft, in which you perform missions for experience and cash, with which you can upgrade your lander's capabilities. The lander handles as a low gravity vehicle would handle, and with practise you can pull off some very impressive manouevers. The types of missions available range from surveying certain locations, searching for misplaced or lost cargo and transportation of cargoes.

There is a multiplayer component as well, though I have to attest i haven't really played much of this mode (was having way too much fun in the single player portion of the game)

Overall, I'd heartily recommend the game to anyone with a slight interest in space exploration - and if you have a Rift this is a must purchase.

A nifty simulation of flying a lunar module. Takes a little while to get the hang of (there's some video tutorials included) but once you're flying around without any assists it's great fun.

Radio chatter and some fitting background music add atmosphere to a lunar environment that would otherwise have none (zing!). You will also have the opportunity to fly around a map on Mars where dust storms and increased gravity and drag make flying much more difficult.

Some physics knowledge is definitely a bonus. Physics nerds like myself will take pleasure in having to plan ahead, taking into account things like cargo weight, fuel efficiency, conservation of momentum and more. You will feel like you've mastered lunar flight when you line up a trajectory for the landing pad, using your RCS thrusters to reduce your transverse speed while throttling up your main thruster to keep the vector over the pad, to finish with a quick yaw at the end to line up a perfect landing.

Probably the biggest drawback to the game is the relative lack of mission variety with only three types. The environments are of course pretty barren as you'd expect so like with many flight simulators you are more occupied with what your craft is doing and how it's flying. This is where Lunar Flight really shines.

It supports TrackIR and Occulus Rift too so props to the developer!

Overall recommended!

Lunar Flight is a simple sim that allows you to fly an Apollo style lunar module around four different maps (difficulty varies between the maps) simulating the moon and mars environments. It has a steep learning curve but is extremely satisfying to master.

Initially it feels a bit like playing the classic 8 bit 'lunar lander' type games in 3D but there's more to it than that. Missions include carrying cargo between locations, gathering data from survey sites and recovering lost cargo. As you progress with missions you gain XP and are able to upgrade your ship to make it more fuel efficient and more manoeuvrable.

Multiplayer introduces combat, adding 'sidewinder' style missiles and decoy flares to the mix. Combat isn't easy; changing direction can be hard due to inertia and it's a pretty unique experience.

I am a fan of simulation games. I own about every flight and space flight simulator there is, and I must admit, this game was quite a fun experience.

First, you'll have to learn about thrust vectoring, which is about the hardest thing to learn if you don't know physics. It's very long for some people and you may get desperate and begin hating this game. But once this is done, you'll understand just how fun this game is.

You can carry out mission, such as locating lost equipment or transporting cargo. And yes, weight does affect your flight. There nothing more intense than landing on a platform with 0.3% left fuel because you underestiamted the weight of that cargo.

And there's multiplayer : Shooting other people on the moon/mars!

And the best part is : The developper (independant, as far as I know) oftens adds stuff to the game and they're awsome. When I bought the game, there were 3 maps, no multi. Since then, Mars was added, multi was added, Occulus Rift support was added and I can't wait to see what's next.

A definitive buy for any flight sim enthousiast.

Wow. This one is making me consider buying two side monitors...
It's a Proper Simulator, but not impossibly fiendish to play,
assuming you have a decent controller. Still possible to enjoy
with just the keyboard though.
Brings you inside a LEM, and there really isn't much to do apart from
flying from A to B, and C, and D; but it doesn't matter, because
the Trip is the Message.

pros:
-What I just wrote, that was all positive.
-You are Inside that tiny Lunar Lander from the 80s!
Or was it the 70s?
-That good old feeling from the Sublogic and co. simulators,
that we thought had been killed by Big Byte, but with all the
modern eye-candy and smoothness

cons:
-You will only see two colours: Grey and Green,
and Red, that makes three,but you don't wanna see red,
unless you're on Mars.
And Blue; Blue's good.
So that's four colours.
It's the freaking Moon! Live with it.

Lunar Flight is so realistic!

Being an astronaut myself, having flown and operated many spacecrafts (ranging from lunar modules such as this, to commandeering an entire flotilla from a mothership), I can say, with a professional background, that Lunar Flight is spot on. Whether you are fending off incoming missiles or carrying out missions to grab randomly appearing space-crates of space-candy on the moon, firing missiles at your fellow astronauts', then this game gets it right.

No seriously though, it is not space-candy, it is high-tech space loot that you would not even understand.

Bored? Spin around in space. It also features multiplayer, so grab a friend and play play chicken with your lunar modules.

Really solid Lunar Module sim but also a great game of physics and precision landing. It may look boring or perhaps even overly complicated at first, but when you get the hang of the mechanics it becomes EXTREMELY enjoyable. I also gotta mention the nice high fidelity graphics, excellent performance and fantastic sound design. I don't know if its real LM radio chatter from the 70s but it sure sounds like it and makes the game really immersive.

Overall its nothing short of awesome all around, my only grievance is that the dev doesn't want to make the oculus rift virtual 3D cockpit available without having the oculus, so you're forced to play with a 2D cockpit with windows and monitors to the 3D world. A real shame but besides that this is great and I strongly recommend it if you enjoy fun games.

A true spiritual successor to old games like Lunar Lander. Yes, there is a learning curve here. One thing that is a bit unfair is a stock lander with no upgrades lacks a stabilizer, if you get the craft rotating in mutiple axis you will have a hell of a time getting it stabilized. As you progress and upgrade the LM you won't have this problem, though of course you will have more experience flying and won't be so fazed by basic flight. Bottom line: when starting out only use yaw/rotate and leave pitch and roll alone. Mission types are fine though they boil down to fly from base X to base/point X and do something. Lost cargo is a little more interesting as you have to use your eyes to locate the target (the beacon is too short ranged to be of too much use in locating the cargo). Some other mission types would be useful, like a photo-mapping mission, where you have to fly a designated strip of territory taking images as you go along.

The actual feeling of flight is superb. The Hills map in particular has a very authentic Lunar Highlands feel to it. Others less so. Canyons is challenging but the verticle exageration makes it look a little unbelievable. Mars is also a challenge but after the "purity" of Lunar flying is a bit frustrating.

As far as this game being too difficult, well, I disagree. If you watch the basic tutorials you should be fine, esp if you obey the basic rule of "no pitch/roll w/o a stabilizer". If you want difficult, try Eagle Lander 3D which is a hardcore LM sim, no game, no missiles, no HUD, just the DSKY and a scribed pattern on the LM window to guide you and historical Apollo scenarios.

For a niche title an impressive level of support. After the initial release we saw release of Oculus Rift support and then multiplayer, and continuing support into 2015. The developer has demonstrated maturity and staying power by supporting this very excellent sim/game.

This game is an absolute gem. I only wish I had an Oculus Rift to play it with, but my TrackIR does perfectly well.

Ever since "Lunar Lander" on the ZX81 and "Thrust" on the Atari ST, I've loved these kinds of gravity-based vector thrust games. This game takes it into a whole new dimension: 3D.

Everything about this game is delightful: the mini tech tree to upgrade the lander, the background sounds, the retro green UI, the perfect lunar landscape rendering. I have to hand it to Shovsoft, this game is so polished you can see your face in it.

This game is for people who have EXCELLENT spacial awareness. If you get a bit sea-sick, or can't read a map upside down, go elsewhere. This is the sort of game where you have to be upside down, spinning, while flying in a parabolic arc, trying to calculate thrust vectors to slow you down and cancel rotation before you become a lunar smear.

I absolutely love the sense of "being there", especially with the head-tracking, and in-ear microphones. Sitting with the lights off, listening to the NASA commentary and carrying cargo around, I'm in hog heaven.

I really REALLY hope that there's a sequel to this which goes in the direction that HardWar (or SubCulture) took. Thank you shovsoft, I've loved every second of playing this!

This unassuming title delivers far more than you might expect on first glance and has become one of my all-time favourite games! Yes - it's that good!

The visuals and physics are superbly done giving you a real sense of low-G flight while keeping the controls very straight-forward. However, just because the simulation is limited to basic thruster controls, don't be fooled into thinking this is a simple arcade flight model.

It takes a while to master flight and get used to the fact that (unlike an aeroplane) the direction you're facing is not always the direction you're moving and that your primary thrust (assuming you're upright which frequenly you are not) is pushing you up rather than forward. Learning the art of flight and mastering precise landings is tons of fun and very addictive.

It's the *feeling* of low-G flight that this game does so incredibly well! I don't have an Occulus Rift yet but it supports it and I imagine it would be nothing short of incredible! After you finish a flight, you can optionally save it and play it back which is a great feature if you've done a particularly interesting manoeuver or perhaps recovered from a minor crash.

*Note: I am a long standing PC gamer and get frustrated when the control scheme of a game is compromised to support gamepads that lack the precision of a mouse. However, Lunar Flight is a notable exception to that rule. This game is best played with a controller. A joystick/HOTAS setup works well (I've tried it) as it does with any flight simulator but in this case a gamepad is definitely the best option.

There are 3 lunar maps of increasing complexity and a 4th Mars map that has stronger gravity and wind storms which push you off course and obscure your vision adding a nice extra challenge.

Missions are one of three varieties: Transporting cargo directly from one pad to another; surveying (hover over) an area; or searching for and returning cargo that has been lost somewhere on the surface. In addition there are time trials where you have to fly from pad to pad through a series of gates as fast as possible and you can equip missles to shoot at either unmanned drones or other players in multiplayer.

Personally, I find the magic to this game is in the flying - not the shooting - and I would have been just as happy if the combat had been removed from the game entirely. The time trials never grabbed me either as I prefer to fly at my own pace. The missions are fun but extremely simplistic. After 100+ hours in the game, I fly cargo recovery exclusively as it is the most interesting of the three.

In some ways the game suffers from it's sucessful flight model as it's so much fun that even once you're past the challenge of learning, you still want to keep flying around. But, the simple and limited missions mean that there just isn't enough to do.

PROS:
- Well executed and realistic flight/physics model.
- Excellent sounds and graphics. Both are simple but very effective.
- Wonderful *feel* to low-G flight.
- Oculus Rift support (even though I don't have one to try yet).

CONS:
- Simplistic and limited missions that quickly become repetitive.
- Relatively small maps. They're sufficient but would be nice if they were bigger.

Mastering flight can be a challenge at first. However, the realistic physics coupled with simple controls strike a nice balance between game and "light sim", making it easy to pick up.

It's the wonderful sensation of low-G flight keeps me coming back for quick fixes despite the repetitive missions. I highly recommend this game to anyone that has an interest in flight games.
