Getting it's cue from the boring original Lunar Lander coin-op from Atari, this update to it (sort of) ends up blowing it away: rather than landing on the same pads over and over, here you get multiple moons, changes in gravity, wind, the size of the landing base, how much fuel you have to start with, and satellites to cause you grief.

The graphics aren't bad, but they're pretty small (hopefully you won't go blind as you play), and even though I don't understand WHY you "hop" from moon to moon to moon (I don't see any little vector gas station attendant guy popping up to fill up my lander), it's difficulty level makes it a game that you won't be able to breeze through anytime soon. There isn't much sound though, but a lot of brief musical clips make up for it, and the buttons on your controller are perfect, you can't blame the controls on this one at all.

Definitely worth the $13.85 (or however much it'll cost to be shipped to your town) from Mark Shaker at www.vectrexcarts.com.
