  • KSP
    KSP is a game where the players create and manage their own space program. Build spacecraft, fly them, and try to help the Kerbals to fulfill their ultimate mission of conquering space.
  • Linux Lunar Lander
    In Linux Lunar Lander you have to fly a LM (Lunar Module) during its last stage of descent towards the surface of the moon. If you can make a soft touch-down with a limited amount of fuel in your tanks, this will be a small step for penguin ..., otherwise you'll become just another crater in the lunar soil.
  • Linux Shuttle Lander
    In this game you fly a space shuttle during it's last fase of approach and landing. The difficulty is that you don't have any fuel left in your tanks, so you have to fly the shuttle as a glider. This means that you only have one attempt to land.
  • Lunar Lander
    Lunar Lander is a simple arcade game for Linux and Windows based on the classic Lunar Lander video game. Use the arrow keys to move the ship and avoid crashing into obstacles such as asteroids, mines, and missiles.

  • Slingshot
    Slingshot is a two dimensional, turn based simulation-strategy game set in the gravity fields of several planets. It is a highly addictive game, and never the same from round to round due to its randomly generated playing fields. It is a deceptively simple game, the goal of which is to shoot the other spacecraft through the field of planets, but their gravity makes it tricky. In order to hit your opponent, you can rotate your ship to aim in any direction, and you can change the power with which your projectile is launched.
  • StarTrade
    StarTrade is a Space simulation like Wing Commander:Privateer or X-Beyond the Frontier with 2D world view.
  • X: The Threat
    (commercial) X: The Threat is a Space trading and combat simulator set in the fictional X-Universe, a network of sectors, linked by large space gates. Read more
