About This Game

Terra Lander is a homage to the classic early days of arcade retro, we hope you enjoy!

Navigate the player to the landing pad through twenty increasingly difficult levels within the time limit and with enough fuel. Movement or firing uses up fuel though levels can be replenished by shooting the fuel dumps. Running out of fuel means you loose control and can't fire. If all fuel dumps are destroyed on any given level the player's fuel tank capacity is doubled for the next level (this does not apply to starting from the highest level reached).

Avoid the moving doors and increasingly fiendish enemies, find the switches for the doors that block your way.

When a life is lost the player is temporarily shielded against enemy fire, this is represented by an electrical circular field around the lander just after it is respawned.

Don't touch anything - that would be fatal!

Be careful though, loosing a life resets the current level and loosing the last life ends the game.

While it is overpriced for the simplicity of the game it is decently fun, this is a game that is semi challenging but still pretty fun to play, the controls are a bit weird but once you get use to it you can fly through the game no problem

Take one bowl, throw in Thrust and Lunar Lander, mix with perfect controls and sprinkle with good music and sounds. The result is Terra Lander. I fell in love with the game quickly. While it's nothing ground breaking, the execution is really solid and most importantly, it's fun to play.

bizzarly addictive, if only i could change what the robot voice says when you lose would be hilarious, also a way to change controls and maybe power ups and a level editor.

This game needs a lot more done if they want to charge for it. There is no tutorial or other modes so i got stuck on the third stage untill i saw the trailer on the store page where he was shooting but there is no cursor to show where you mouse is so you have to trial and error till it starts shooting. Developer is absent in forums and its webpage is beyond basic so dont expect much support for this game down the line. Watch the trailer and you will have seen all this game has to offer.

I'm going to put my edit at the top. Okay, I made it through and have now progressed another 7 or 8 levels rapidly so that one level was kind of an anomaly. Also, if you land on the landing pad and the game doesn't end that means your time ran out. This is an incredibly fantastic game that is sure to become one of your favorites. Too bad there aren't more levels.

My original review - This was a great little game until I got to Gauntlet of the Gods which is not very deep in the game but is just about impossible. Then I get to the landing pad in GotG and it doesn't end the level the way it does in every other level. What kind of sadistic game design is that?

My experience with Terra Lander started off pleasantly. I liked the vector graphics and the way the lander handled with the X box controller. The robotic voice offered hilariously cruel comments. It was a little hard to distinguish the enemy bullets from all the other sparkles in the game but the first few levels were so easy that they bordered on boring and I barely remember them. Then I got to Gauntlet of the Gods and there are way too many turrets and tight passageways full of richochet bullets coming from every direction. When you get through areas here you're just memorizing patterns of enemy fire. It feels like luck and memorizing when you get through. You're not really learning anything. Its kind of tedious. Then you get to the end, and this is probably after losing 900 ships and being insulted 3000 times, and you land on the landing pad - nothing happens. It doesn't end the level like it does every other time. I wanted to kill a family with a hammer. (See the top paragraph for an explanation)

This is not retro or a steep learning curve. Its just lazy level design and early access developer sadism and its too bad because Terra Lander has so much potential. (see top paragraph)

Give me an f'ing break. This isn't even close to being at the level of an acceptable free flash game.

Nice little retro game. Everything is good about it except the game needs to atleast notify you the controls on how to shoot. Soundtrack is smooth.

What a funny little game! Terra Lander reminds me old school games which i played on Atari 800 XL. I love simple graphics, great music and "Hawking", who is trying to comment player's failures;-). Retro games are not my cup of tea (not all of them), but this one is likeable.

This title is amazing, It captures the old 8 bit game essence superbly. A great melody: On the Beautiful Blue Danube by Johan Strauss will accompany through the game, you can´t hate that one. Some will remember the 2001: A Space Odyssey movie when playing. The cynical narrator (presumably Stephen Hawking) will make you smile when you crash the Lunar Pod. The game has a good difficulty as you advance. 20 levels are the downside here.

For all of those who will play Terra Lander with a keyboard and mouse, I will give you an advice: when It comes to shoot, just shake a bit your mouse and press left mouse button. I was going crazy the first 10 minutes.

Good replay value If you´re one of those people who just want a simple but fun game to play for an hour tops.

A must have for Retro Gamers. 8/10

it would be better if you could also swap the horizontal axis, it's backwards.
