Description

Experience the thrills of space flight with this realistic space flight simulation. You pilot the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM), a sophisticated cargo vehicle that shuttles astronauts and equipment to and from the moon. Colorful graphics and real-life controls make every flight an adventure. Land on the foreboding lunar surface or rocket from Tranquility Base into moon orbit.

Tranquility Base portrays space flight and lunar landings with true-to-life accuracy. The laws of motion and gravitation affect the LEM spacecraft much like they influence an actual spacecraft in outer space. Using keyboard or joystick controls, you can increase or decrease engine thrust, change the pitch -90 to +90 degrees, and roll from -10 to +10 degrees, refuel your spacecraft, and start the engines.

Trivia

Tranquility Base was originally to be published by Edu-Ware Services, but when Management Sciences America purchased the company, the game was published under the banner of its Peachtree Software subsidiary and marketed as an educational product.

The publishing rights to Tranquility Base were acquired by Jeff Ford, David Mullich, Wesley Huntress and Pam Pollack so that the game could be published by their new company, Electric Transit. The game was enhanced with an expanded moon base and a cargo run scenario by its developer, Larry Roberts, and published under the name “Lunar Explorer.”
