3D Lunar Lander
Well, we're a little late given that the 40th anniversary of the Apollo
11 lunar landing has passed, but this version of Lunar Lander is just
too cool to pass up. Grant wrote about the classic versions of Lunar
Lander last month, and though this one is certainly inspired by the same
event, the implementation is just a tad different.
To play this 3D version of Lunar Lander you will need the Google Earth
plug-in for your browser (don't worry, if you don't have it the page
will automatically prompt you to install it). This version of Lunar
Lander attempts to simulate the landing that Neil Armstrong performed on
Apollo 11. The game is rendered in 3D using Google Earth's moon mapping
capability, and your view is from outside the lunar landing module.
