Seriously, it's a jigsaw puzzle No wonder NASA can't fly... anything... on it's own. They're presented with Kerbal Space Program and SimpleRockets as models. They come up with something like a flash app that most closely resembles a scripted jigsaw puzzle and gives congratulations for reading a dial. It's a sad excuse for education and is boring sixty seconds in.
I think it is silly that NASA doesn't use metric units with this app. Science books use metric. Labels on everything Americans buy have both metric and American units. Basically, it's an oversight (or bad decision) that is a totally unforgivable when the intent is to promote science (rocket science specifically). Don't fire anybody ... just fix it! The app is nice otherwise. Wasn't losing a 125 million dollar (Lockheed as contractor) climate orbiter a clue that English units have no place in rocket science? Hint: if someone is using your app, they probably have a grasp of metric or plan on it. Seriously, who do I slap?
Its boring and it doesn't give the controller or gamer anything to work with. It should provide freedom to anyone who truly wants to build their own rocket instead of providing such limited access. In other words, it sucks.
I liked it It was fun at first but then kinda got boring. I love NASA and rockets so I had to download this game. I was a little disappointed because my favorite rocket (Gemini titan) was not in here but still good enough.
Needs new difficulty. This app is just all about putting he rocket parts, regardless of which one first, into the launch pad. The launch is just an animation. Even with the hardest difficulty, it's still too easy to a Kerbal Space Program player. Want to learn rocketry? Buy KSP.
Very cool I don't know how long I will keep this app on my phone, but it's well worth checking out. Space exploration & pyrotechnics - what's not to love!
