NASA iPhone App (Game Simulator) Lets You ‘Control’ Your Own Lunar Electric Rover

Space geeks rejoice! Ever dreamed of controlling your own Lunar rover? Looks like your dream has come true; well to a great extent! In follow-up to NASA’s widely popular debut iPhone app … the cleverly named – NASA App … the NASA Lunar Electric Rover Simulator iPhone game landed on the App Store yesterday. Now you can virtually drive a fictional Lunar Electric Rover on a future lunar outpost. The game is free and available through the iTunes store.

We wanted to make this a cool game instead of an app where you just retrieve information,” said Chris Giersch, the host of NASA EDGE.

For the first iteration, NASA decided not to go too extravagant. “We thought about going high-tech and going really jazzy, but for this first version, let’s just keep it basic,” Giersch said.

The game is very simple, but you’ll be able to finish various challenges and learn a lot about the moon and how the lunar rover works in the process. There’s also an interactive gallery with images of the rover and the Lunar Outpost it supplies. As the game review site Krapps notes, the gameplay is a bit “Pacmanish.” Beyond driving around the rover, you can also see images from the proposed lunar outpost and learn more about what life on the Moon might be like.

The game was developed by Analytical Mechanics Association at the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. When are you going to try this iPhone Lunar Rover?
