Lunar Lander 2000
What is it?
Lunar Lander 2000 is a simple Windows port of a program by Lars Forsberg. You can check out his original FreeBSD version at http://www.nada.kth.se/~f96-lfo/lunar.
I did my version in a single evening as a real "quick and dirty" little exercise to get my feet wet in OpenGL programming. As a result, do not expect a lot of elegence in my portions of the code, hehe (although the binary is only a mere 32k!).
This program has been tested on Windows 98 and Windows 2000 but it should work on any version of Windows.

The game starts with the lander at a stationary altitude of 2000 with 5000 units of fuel, thrust starts at 1:1 power to weight - to begin descending you must lower the thrust.
These keys are used in the game (make sure you have NUMLOCK turned on!) :
To make a safe landing, your speed must be less than 0.500. If you don't want the lander to accelerate, you must have a thrust with the value 2.0. If you land or crash you get a short message and the lander is reset to its starting position.
