The Final Gaming Frontier
Shoot for the moon with this collection of rocket games. Whether you are building a rocket or launching one, the sky is the limit when it comes to the fun you could have with these space rocket games.
Did you know that the first manned space flight took place in 1961, when Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin orbited the Earth in the Vostok 1? Shortly after, the Americans followed suit, sending up astronaut Alan Shepard to perform a sub-orbital space flight in a rocket called Freedom 7. Now you can follow in the footsteps of these space pioneers by launching your own rocket.
The goal of rocket-launching games like Rocket Weasel is to hit the target with your rocket as close to the center as possible. Rocket Man has a simple premise: blast away your human target! In Rocket Boy you're the one who gets launched into space. But flying a rocket can be just as hard as launching one, as you'll discover in Rocket Run, where players must collect all of the stars while trying not to hit any walls. In Super Rocket Rush reach for the stars (and the strawberries) as you navigate your spacecraft. In Rocket Rescue the infinite expanse of space sure does seem cluttered as players struggle to maneuver their space rockets around obstacles.
But space rocket games aren't the only rocket games out there. Get your head out of the clouds and onto the track with Rocket MX: give yourself a rocket boost, perform stunts and go through a green ring to gain fuel and keep building new tricks. In rocket-building games like Rocket Bike, buy equipment and start building an unstoppable machine to compete in a race.
It's not rocket science: climb into your spaceship and start playing now.
