Connect parts together to build rockets. You can choose from a variety of rocket engines, fuel tanks, and other gizmos. You can even build rovers with powered wheels.

Blast off from any planet you want. You can fly through the intense atmosphere of Venus, or you can take advantage of the low gravity of Mercury. Whip around the sun and launch yourself out to the far reaches of the solar system.

Several challenges are built into the game so you can have fun while learning about real rocket science. Challenge yourself to orbit with the least amount of fuel, land on the moon, and so much more.

Build space stations, moon bases, refueling stations, and more with support for multiple launches. Save your sandbox at anytime or upload it and share it with your friends.

Kepler wrote the equations 400 years ago, and SimpleRockets uses those equations to model extremely realistic orbital physics. Players will learn about rocket science and astrodynamics while they are having a blast exploring the solar system.

SimpleRockets reviews and comments

A very very good game, I recommend it to all. The goal? Build a rocket, make it go on other planets, create a space station, send a Rover to another planet... There is no specific purpose to by having fun. I first bought it two years ago a few weeks after its release on laptop, the game already showed great potential, today the game incorporates backups, persistence of data, many planets and moons, water on the planets, and today still many things are still added, it is well worth its price, do not miss this opportunity! And honestly I spent more time on it than on KSP.

I caught it for free, but I Would pay for it without a doubt. Didactic, and if you have a little boy, you will part with laughter while learning about orbits and gravity.

Fun Little Game! Completely free to design your rockets and completely free to find challenges in the solar system. Land a car on Mars? Check. Send and retrieve a satellite? Goes nicely. Buy!

At the Game I never got bored so great Work and something else came up When asked if you should produce any more games I accidentally pressed no that should actually be a yes so keep so great Work

Dress up game, this app is a true orbits simulator with a strong didactic load where, while you learn to "play" you acquire notions about how it affects the speed and gravity over the orbits. It Proposes an didactic journey that reminds of the last space race, step by step. It Compensates for every penny that is worth.

It's a lot of Fun and great Pastime. Although the Controls could be better when Building Missiles. The Game is nevertheless one of the best from the AppStore you just have to keep playing It once you have started building, testing, then improving and then looking for a new Challenge that the Rocket has to meet. Not only to design this, but also to control the Rockets in Space and on the Surface is very well thought through and a lot of Fun!

The Game has a simple Tutorial and Missions that introduce one to the most important Techniques. But then it really starts and you can start your own interplanetary Space program. Physics is better than in Space Agency, for example. Even this Game is in 2D. But You have to develop a little Understanding of Orbital Mechanics and can't just fly "up" to achieve a higher Orbit. It would be great if there were a few more Sound effects, radio Traffic, Etc.
