Description

Abstractly piloting a lunar lander from some external position, your aim is to situate it over terrain sufficiently flat to land on and then, by firing thrusters left, right and down, guide it to rest with sufficiently gentle horizontal and vertical velocity that it doesn't dash itself to bits on the moon's surface. All that with limited fuel supplies!
