Here's a game based on an Atari game of old where your task is to successfully land a lander on the Moon without dying or destroying it such that you aren't able to return. It's pretty addictive though once you get the hang of it there isn't much more to do besides find imaginative ways to crash it, and it's a pity that the lander just goes out of sight when you fly it too high. It would be nice to be able to input the mass or gravity for different types of bodies, and then have to land on that. With extra small bodies there would also be the danger of breaking orbit.
Learning basic programming is going well though so once I reach the point where I'm able to create games of this type I'll probably make one myself.
