LEM Simulator Publisher's Description

LEM Sim is the most advanced lunar lander game available on a Palm/Treo device. It realistically simulates the critical phase of an Apollo moon mission which is the landing. During the descent to the moon, you may also have to cope with system malfunctions while you are busy flying the LEM! Some of those failures are recoverable. One example is a leak in the fuel tank. This will of course reduce the amount of fuel available for landing requiring you to land quickly. Other failures may be fatal. For instance, if the main descent engine shuts down for too long then NASA may as well name a new crater after you!
