Moonlander is the first graphical real-time version of Lunar Lander. It was commissioned by DEC to showcase the capabilities of the DEC GT40 graphics terminal.

The game showed a side view of a mountainous lunar landscape in vector graphics. The lander would drop down and it was up to the player to make sure it would land on a flat surface without too much velocity. Using the light pen the direction and throttle of the thruster could be adjusted.
