As pilot of a Lunar Exploration Module, your mission is to land safely on the moon. But the on-board computer has broken down, so you've got to land your craft manually.

George: This is far from being an original idea. However, the space module behaves as you would expect, and there's a sense of achievement when you do land. MISS

Mike: There are plenty of 'lander' games around, and this one's probably one of the best. Particularly impressive is the way the screen switches to close-up when you bring the craft near to the ground. HIT

Johnathan: Landing is not very easy at all, which makes success all the sweeter when you manage it. The graphics are very smooth. HIT
