Explore space on your Windows Phone with your very own SimpleRockets

Space Rockets

SimpleRockets is an interesting game for Windows Phone 8. You're tasked with designing, building and launching your very own rockets into space and explore the solar system. It's a fun little indie game, which has launched on not only Windows Phone, but also Android, iOS and PC. So head on past the break and find out why you should waste countless hours travelling through space.

The first task is to choose and connect multiple parts together to construct a rocket ship. You have a choice between multiple rocket engines, fuel tanks and other components. It's even possible to construct rovers with powered wheels. Individual components have different values, and don't naturally assume the biggest equals the best. That's a mistake which is simply hilarious to watch on-screen as your poor rocket ship literally pulls itself apart.

So what can you do once you've configured your ship with the right parts and are ready to rock and roll? There are a number of challenges available, including landing on the moon, maximum speed, orbit practice and many more. If you're not quite into challenges or have completed them all, there's always the sandbox mode where you can let your imagination run wild.

It's strongly recommended to check out the tutorials available as they only take a few minutes to quickly read through. While it's humorous jumping in and configuring a rocket that simply wouldn't work on paper, let alone in simulation, there's a sweet feeling of achievement when you manage to take off and advance smoothly.

Check out the video below for a quick look at what SimpleRockets has to offer:

To quickly recap on what's included; you can launch from any planet in the solar system, the game itself sports realistic rocket physics, there are numerous challenges available and there's the almighty sandbox mode to keep you occupied for hours.

You can download SimpleRockets from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 (or PC). There's no free trial, but take it from us that it's worth downloading: Thanks, Ronan, for the tip!
