Design your own rocket ships. Blast off into space. Explore the solar system. See if you have what it takes to be a rocket scientist. 

CREATE 
Choose and connect parts together to build rocket ships. You can choose from a variety of rocket engines, fuel tanks, and other gizmos. You can even build rovers with powered wheels. You are only limited by your imagination. 

EXPLORE 
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. 

CHALLENGES 
Several challenges are built into the game so you can see who can go the fastest, fly the farthest, orbit with the least amount of fuel, land on the moon, and so much more. 

ROCKET SCIENCE 
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. This makes SimpleRockets ideal for the classroom, or as a healthy alternative to the barrage of brainless games available on the App Store. 

FEATURES 
* Build rockets however you want
* Configure rocket stages
* Launch from any planet in the solar system
* Realistic rocket physics and orbital physics 
* Sandbox mode

    Worth the price, although the program starts to degrade and get more unusable over time to the point where I have to reinstall it. Looks like others have had that issue. Still a program I play a lot because it is neat. More missions to further planets or missions to the sun, or breaking Jupiter's orbit are thoughts, otherwise I make my own missions as I go. Thanks for a fun program, please fix the bug where switching between orbits or map view causes the program to crash after being on my phone for a while. No other programs do that.

    This game is cool... Deducted 1 star just for the sound issue...

    I loved this game but now it crashes everytime I go to the map during orbit

    The sounds doesn't work is the biggest problem.Fix it as soon as possible and it can be rated 5 stars.

    The game was awesome for a few days, and then the bugs started. First, obviously, there's no sound. Then the screen occasionally goes black. And the worst, now everytime I play, it crashes if I go between map and rocket view. Please fix, because I love this game.

    Very fun, would be nice to add user created rocket assemblies, for faster building of complex rockets.

    Misleading title. Not simple

    Amazing game. Sure beats the "other" platforms **** apps.
