Description
Be sure to check our new game, SimplePlanes. Build airplanes and test them with realistic physics and see how they fly. You can find it on the App Store now or check out the website at http://www.SimplePlanes.com Design your own rocket ships. Blast off into space. Explore the solar system. See if you have what it takes to be a rocket scientist. CREATE Choose and connect parts together to build rocket ships. You can choose from a variety of rocket engines, fuel tanks, and other gizmos. You can even build rovers with powered wheels. You are only limited by your imagination. EXPLORE Blast off from any planet you want. You can fly through the intense atmosphere of Venus, or you can take advantage of the low gravity of Mercury. Whip around the sun and launch yourself out to the far reaches of the solar system. CHALLENGES Several challenges are built into the game so you can see who can go the fastest, fly the farthest, orbit with the least amount of fuel, land on the moon, and so much more. rocket SCIENCE Kepler wrote the equations 400 years ago, and SimpleRockets uses those equations to model extremely realistic orbital physics. Players will learn about rocket science and astrodynamics while they are having a blast exploring the solar system. This makes SimpleRockets ideal for the classroom, or as a healthy alternative to the barrage of brainless games available on the App Store.

Bug with the heading buttons.
by Monster maker 2345: on 2019/04/14 02:42
During any docking missions the bottom heading buttons don’t work. The rotate left and right buttons along with the reverse buttons don’t work on iPhone 8 on the latest software. It’s really frustrating to not be able to use those buttons as the missions require it to complete. Otherwise it’s a super fun great game! Please fix!
I LOVE THIS GAME
by Julie Ann in Ohio on 2019/04/07 15:20
I have been playing this game for years now and I can say that this is the best game for traveling space on your phone. If you did not buy this game BUY IT NOW!
Station
by Allglad on 2019/03/29 18:36
** update ** The below review was true till I started to learn the tricks to addd more than 1 Dock Plugs & stuff....now I am getting the hang of it...really tricky. I wish there a way to turn off orbit text...makes it hard to see vehicles...but that’s minor compared to not even getting Vehicles to orbit without explosions. Great game...changed from 1* to 5... ***update** I’ve played Space Agency.......Spaceflight simulator...and others getting to build at least the start of a station....which is something like 2 solar...4 batteries...rcs on the station and usually at least 3 connection docks minimum...and 2 ion drives....plus a section that has a rocket to move the station &/or the rocket separately from the station....and no game like this is any where near as complicated as this game. Only 1 station connection can be made with the station I’ve been trying.....and heck I still can’t launch past 10k height. The rubber like connections for the side connectors make things unbelievably difficult to space things out. Plus no #’s on rocket power, fuel levels, or weight values. I’m so close to giving up after 4 days with hours of trying every day. Lack of fairings &/or struts to keep the rockets from being so rubbery sure is a step...into the not simple. Moving around and zooming on the rocket construction area is more difficult than any other game I’ve seen like it..or any other software since before the year 2000...and the lack of settings to have more grid squares also helps make things the most difficult that I can think of...the dang side panel blocks parts unless building that section last. Why this game has side connectors I only assume is for more explosions...otherwise they look near useless. Even with only 2 stages and no side boosters the rockets still can’t stay side by side..it’s like building rockets of jello....really? Yes. I could do this simple station in 10 min or less on any other game like it.... It’s too NOT SimpleRockets...it’s getting to look to be ToodamnNOTSimpleRockets!! In my perspective. Well I did it...no not what I wanted. I didn’t try for the full station I wanted. I just did everything except the extra rocket...it took 37 each super sized fuel sections & super size rockets...rcs...too much rcs...usually I only use rcs after reaching apoapsis or when I’m close (in other games to a stable orbit (but not close for this game) to a complete orbit this launch took close to 50% rcs and I have enough force to take me to apoapsis...but I still need to set orbit or I’ll crash. What? Now that I passed the stage for my ion rockets I can’t restart them? ....that’s it I have to 1 * this junk game. Also please rename the game to difficultrockets so others know before attempting to play. ...going on 6 days trying to launch the start of a basic station...no luck...I’ve gotten to apoapsis....but so little fuel left to establish a stable orbit I had to quit....8 days now. I should delete this lame game for good...every time I think hey maybe this will do it...and nope. Omg on the 8th day I got the almost a station up. No extra rocket. ....I still have 1/2 fuel and around 90%rcs....with apo-hight of 165 and peri of 118.....shouldn’t take much more to get the orbit more stable. ...still omg it’s like jello rockets!! I did finally manage using side booster disconnectors also...man they are so complicated though and you can’t tell what fuel is what...it only displays main fuel...no side booster levels. ....common way too difficult!! OMM!! It’s impossible to cycle through stages to allow for reigniting engines? Yep I am sure it’s undoable as is. This game is unplayable. At the least it should be possible to cycle trough stages after getting out of atmosphere...which would allow turning on and off things...at the most it should be possible to rearrange the existing stages....plus’s to all the other problems of the game. What a promising game that’s way to difficult in almost every way. I’ll check back for updates weekly or until something better comes along...like SpaceAgency 2. I’m done trying to play as is...I give up.
Fun game but a HUGE flaw
by mcg1969 on 2019/03/16 02:34
There is a control thing where you can drag an arrow around a circle to point your ship in that direction but it is majorly flawed. The engines turn the ship in that direction but don’t stop pushing until it is already past he arrow. If you know anything about space, it’s going to take a long time to point the ship in the right direction. This destroys th whole game and plus that the manual arrows can’t be pressed so your screwed. Fix this problem please
Like it...
by husky6273 on 2019/02/18 01:58
Like it but map is a rip-off of Spaceflight Simulator
Bad bug
by 56wrty329 on 2019/02/15 14:27
You can't do this and have all parts attach ============ I. I. I. I. I ============ Those parts on the top and bottom are the struts, and those parts in the middle are the detacher's. Here's the problem, only one of them can attach on both ends for some weird reason I think it's the way the game handles multiple piece segments. (B.t.w I found that the first piece that you place is going to be the dominant one in is going to be the one that will attach) Anyway this can lead to some pretty flimsy rockets if they're too big, please fix this!!! (even know you're probably going to have to entirely reprogram the way the game handles parts connecting)
Desperately needs an update
by Brandon24201isepic on 2019/01/22 03:05
Game doesn’t work properly anymore, can’t turn left or right, it’s lagged, I press it and it works like 40 seconds later, everything’s breaking, and it’s sad to see this game being so ignored, it needs a bug fix badly
No good on ipad
by kiwi_outdoors on 2019/01/13 01:40
Willnot rotate to allow play in lndscape format- wasted my $3
Please... add... MOONS IN THE SELECT MENU IN SANDBOX MODE!
by Gabriel 1908 on 2019/01/11 01:38
Add the moons of Jupiter and Saturn In the Planet Select in sandbox mode. PLZ! LOVE this app. AND F**K YOU BA****** WHO HATE THIS GAME!!
Got me into KSP
by Cool dude 19😎 on 2018/12/29 23:49
So I got this game when I was sick a while ago, and have been playing ever since. I feel so accomplished getting rockets into orbits. I decided to get KSP from this game.
AWESOME GAME!
by Happy Jc's butt on 2018/12/01 22:15
Most realistic rocket simulating game I have ever played! It is so fun trying to build a better rocket to get to different places and learn from that attempt and build your rocket better and hopefully make it. Some things that I would like to be added is a rotating item and customizable fuel blocks. Thanks,
Fun but.......
by qegxndjdjxjfhdh on 2018/11/25 04:07
It is fun but I would not pay for it even though I did,lol
Best game I’ve ever played.
by Oebrvax7&? on 2018/11/06 06:47
Space station around Mars!
Really fun but has bugs that haven’t been fixed
by Chris Norling on 2018/10/26 15:24
RCS thrusters are really broken (iPhone 7) and it’s like I have to use a force touch to maneuver my sat. Makes the task extremely difficult. I’m sure the dev is busy working on SR2 but it would be awesome if this could be fixed. I’m not sure if it’s worth it anymore since most of these reviews are years old but I would appreciate it.
Still fantastic!
by dmc75287 on 2018/09/13 14:21
SR2 will be out soon but SR1 is still great at teaching the fundamentals of orbital mechanics. Plus, it's a lot of fun! It's only rocket science.
Please upgrade this app
by imterpid yellow 46738 on 2018/09/03 21:51
The orbital mechanics are to bad
This game is great
by z3r01516 on 2018/09/03 20:13
If you like this game than you will love a game called ksp
Great but one bug
by Legend599 on 2018/08/29 01:44
So the game is great but I have a major delay on the lean buttons on the very bottom.
This is a great game!
by Seamisian on 2018/08/22 03:07
This is a groundbreaking game that can potentially teach you about rocket science and lets you launch a vast fleet of spaceships to explore the solar system. The best part about it is that it takes up very little storage! I would definitely recommend this masterpiece.
Waste
by Dantm what on 2018/08/16 19:51
Ok, so this game may have more parts and more planets and the earth has water, but space flight simulator is free and has better controls, try it before this, also there’s gonna possible be multiplayer in it, also you could get kerbal space program (like the game recommends) and on PS4 if you have one it’s only like $42 with tax, and apparently there’s a discount code, or if you can’t get it, wait for simple rockets 2, it seems MUCH better.
Great game takes a bit to learn how to do advanced manuvers
by nachocheesman on 2018/07/22 16:18
When I first got the game I skipped threw all of the missions and the game was really hard. I went back latter and it changed the way I play.
Add 3D
by Maxvaldes Iv on 2018/06/30 01:56
Cool Game but I want 3D
Controls
by LED. Man on 2018/06/20 04:09
Bottom row of controls do not work very well, great game anyway!
Can’t wait
by Hello360jr on 2018/06/14 15:48
My god I can’t wait for SimpleRockets 2
Latest update ruined RCS
by Bumble1022! on 2018/06/12 15:44
The bottom row of controls only works if you tap the top of the button making rcs navigation difficult. Please fix
Thanks for fixing it!!!
by moonrock44 on 2018/06/10 15:10
Now I can effectively make and drive a rocket. Thank you so much
Great game
by Clash Warlords YT on 2018/06/04 15:38
I like the game A LOT. Great game. Although could you please make the button size bigger.
Latest update makes game unplayable
by natesax7 on 2018/06/02 21:30
Love this game! The last update, however, set the screen zoomed in and off center to the point where you can't see most of the on screen controls. Please fix this! I was just about to do a 'Smoon' landing mission. (I'll change this to a 5 star review when you do) EDIT: update fixed screen issue! Thank you!
Fix screen ratio bug!!!
by jamespierce95 on 2018/06/02 02:15
EDIT: They fixed the issue! 5 stars all the way!! Absolutely love this game but now it’s unplayable because the screen ratio is all jacked up. Giving one star to hopefully draw attention to the issue.
Just purchased, can’t play!
by Zbomb33 on 2018/06/01 23:16
Wish I had read recent reviews, unplayable on my 7plus due to screen ratio bug. I will give more stars if I can ever play the game! Update: quick response from the developer, fixed a few days later. Having a ton of fun now!
Resolution issues
by Harlow112 on 2018/06/01 20:56
So I’m on a iPhone 6 Plus and my screen doesn’t adapt to the right resolution, my throttle and the time warp are completely gone I’ve tried uninstalling it even soft resetting my phone Help
Game doesn’t fit to iPhone 7 Plus screen
by DI2ID on 2018/06/01 12:11
Bought. Installed. Opened the game only to have everything off centered...Reinstalled. Nothing changed.
Good game but new update added a problem
by +super sonic on 2018/06/01 00:18
So this game is worth it but my screen is all jacked up so if I could get some help on that it would be nice
Please fix the enlarged screen
by القناااااااااااص on 2018/05/30 02:32
After updating the game to the one that has SimpleRockets 2 link, the screen just zoomed in and is not well calibrated. I can't play anymore because I can't view stages button nor ignition button. Please fix.
Last update broke it :(
by K2David121 on 2018/05/29 10:31
Was a 5 star game but now the top part of the screen is cut off and vital info can not be seen. May work on the X with the different dimensions but doesn’t on a iP7+.
Latest update
by Rathon Sector on 2018/05/28 22:50
This could be from my gen4 iPad but the screen is off after the may2018 update. The top of the screen is a few inches lower then the top of the iPad screen.
Buggy
by Thatt White Girl on 2018/05/28 16:39
Since the new update, the screen is super zoomed in and I can’t do anything. I have an iPhone 7+. P.s. is simple rockets 2 going to be on iOS?
They Gave Up
by FROSTYxICY on 2018/05/15 08:19
Hasn’t been updated in 2yrs, the game get’s kinda bland it would be nice if they added more stuff. But other than that they have up on the game.
Can’t even get the app back
by XxRenedyxX on 2018/04/24 16:03
I bought this game like a month ago and now I can’t even download it back and also same problem with the simple plane or something like that. Please help
Meh...
by TheOneAndOnly, Cre8or on 2018/04/03 03:36
I loved this game at first. I've been playing since it had come out- but there is an absence of something. The creator(s) of this game are not adding updates! FOR TWO TEARS. Come on guys, I saw more potential and I know you can do it. Don't let the new game, Spaceflight Simulator beat you up too much. They will catch up. I promise
Great Game thanks Jundroo!!!!!
by SimpleRockets21 on 2018/03/30 22:19
Thanks! I will be buying every SimpleRockets and I love this game! I love the mods option, rockets, realism, and I the fun! The only thing I would want in SimpleRockets 2, is for sure mods, but also maybe keyboard and mouse support? So it’s more like a Rocket ship control deck. Thanks again Jundroo!
Love the game, one problem
by Dnhduddvvvdhd on 2018/03/16 22:04
I absolutely love the game. There is only one aspect of the game which I can not accomplish. It is the rendezvous with satellites I’ll either be too high or too low. With the launch of SimpleRockets2 I ask you to please incorporate a navigation system to smoothly guide your rocket to the target so long that the so called target also has a navigation system on board and is in the same planets gravitational pull. Thank you for reading and I hope to see this In SimpleRockets2.
Good game, but needs more!
by Wesley McDonald on 2018/03/06 22:07
It’s fun and exiting! But needs more options and parts for editing and building your rocket. I doubt this plea will be heard but if it is that would be greatly appreciated. Also if you add more you could up the game price to $4.99
Awesome game
by IceburgSandwich on 2018/03/03 00:20
This game has taught me alot about physics and how fun it is it to play with it.
Idea for a game PLEASE read
by ThePickLe69 on 2018/02/26 07:43
I love this game. But there should be a game that is like this but it is a burning city simulator, where you have to start a fire and see if you can burn down bigger cities as you go on.
ADD THIS IN SP 2
by Ejejdvjrhfhfjfndndjrnfbf on 2018/02/10 01:11
WINGS AND SHUTTLE PARTS PLEASE. ALSO ADD EVA ABILITY
This game gets a sequel!
by Zero (a boy) -:- on 2018/02/07 16:25
As some of you have heard Jundroo has announced Simplerockets 2! That will be 3D and stuff! Yes it's coming this year.
Great game
by Unstable- t on 2017/12/22 16:21
I love the way you install mods first off! This is an extremely addictive game. I haven't been able to put it down for 2 years now.
Great game
by Fjeheuue on 2017/12/14 21:36
Kinda like a mini version of kerbal space program (which is a great game btw)
Played KSP?
by ΑΨΣSΘΜΞ on 2017/11/16 18:37
This is like a 2D, pow powered version of KSP. definitely a good game
Awesome!!!
by Kshogun on 2017/09/30 04:08
This game is amazing, and it has an unbeatable price!!! It taught me a lot of basic rocket science while having fun. The 2 things I would add though would be multiple attachment points, for stability, and the ability to create and unlock locations, like simple planes. Other than that, this is one of the best space games and mobile games I've seen!
Please read, good info for potential buyer
by VaderInvader03 on 2017/09/18 12:21
It is the best game I ever played. It takes a while before you get everything but then it is awesome. I rank it up there with or past Minecraft and Clash of Clans (for me that means a lot) the thing is though it is relatively simple I do not recommend it for young children. They will not get it, give up and never look at it again. Also it sometimes crashes, which is really annoying because whatever ship you were on disappears. But it does save the design of whichever ship you last launched. Please fix the crashing but other than that it is awesome.
I LOVE IT
by Dead destroyer on 2017/09/17 21:26
This game is really fun but please put in a command pod in the craft please
Best game ever
by 038403740 on 2017/09/07 21:25
I don't write reviews much, but when I do, it's a good game
Great game but..
by This is really cool! on 2017/09/05 01:59
First off, this game is worth every cent I put into it. Second, please fix struts. If I want to attach multiple struts to each other, the only will attach to one, and the whole thing will go haywire. Third, while mod support is great, it could be better. Just look at your other game, Simpleplanes. That has amazing mod support. If you could implement that into this, then that would be amazing.
Update
by Opie1134 on 2017/08/27 18:57
Update please
Best IOS game ever made!!!
by kandip on 2017/08/24 00:00
I love this game so much! I can't even explain how much I love this game! But could you add some more advanced technology to add on the space crafts? Also add rotation to planets. But honestly I would rate this game 10 stars if I could!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Don't know what the hype is all about
by Tfaurie on 2017/08/09 11:26
This is a 99cents game at most, to sum it up quickly, you put and engine and a fuel tank and you're good to go. The selection and building process can be very confusing and irritating because it's impossible to select the specific piece of the rocket you want to move. Really wish I could get my money back on this one.
Please read
by The ISS Man on 2017/08/06 15:22
Could you please add dwarf planets and more moons. When building a rocket, could you please add more parts to add a customizable aspect to the game. When launching a rocket the different parts tend to "fray" while flying. I'm currently building the ISS and it has over 30 docks and counting. When I build it the game makes it possible to dock satellites at an angle, over time this makes the space station become curved and wobbly. Could you please make the docks more stiff and add a button that says,"Straighten all dock." When I was trying to land on Smalley's Comet, it said I had an encounter when I really didn't. I think this is a great game. You don't find many game on the AppStore with this capability. I hope you will read these request and take them into your considerations. Thank you.

Satisfying science simulation
Awesome........ but improvements
by the comet catcher on 2017/05/13 19:54
Love it but it needs some improvements 1 other stars ,planets, and moons .2 new plasma engines , plasma containers, and plasma collector 3 new comets 4 fix a bug that makes comets shake to death
Needs update
by Rorro4ev3r on 2017/04/26 19:47
The game is AWSOME!!! But needs an update. Would you consider adding a heat shield and atmosphere heating to the game? I would REALLY appreciate it! Once again... GOOD GAME -Me
Enjoyable but boring after a wile
by Winstondgarrett on 2017/04/06 17:28
HOW DARE YOU NOT INCLUDE PLUTO AS A PLANET
Very fun
by A future pilot on 2017/04/01 14:45
I like this game because of its insane physics engine. I highly recommend this game for people searching for a realistic, fun mobile game. Real rocket science is adopted into the game making it a challenge. Highly recommend the tutorials, for they are very helpful.
Good but
by Not my nick hhfbgyfggghhh on 2017/03/27 01:20
This is so fun but it needs a re-entry effect it also need people and a smluto(pluto) Keep up the good work.😄
Great game but needs...
by Lol:)MAGIC on 2017/02/25 19:06
This game needs more rocket customizations to make it better for space travel. There is a new solar system that we found called Trappist-1 it would be amazing if you guys could put that in the game. P.S. thanks for reading
Incredible!!!!
by Jimmyshome310 on 2017/02/07 22:38
This game is amazing. My son loves space. He begged me to get him the game, and I'm glad I did. He plays it all day and he loves to come sit on my lap we build rockets together. We've not had many successes😅 but it's the time that I get to spend with him that matters, if you are reading this please buy this game, I promise you, you won't regret it
Great game
by Fat man633390 on 2017/01/31 21:28
It's a fun enjoyable game. It is almost like 2D kerbal space program. Only reason I give it four stars is the rocket parts are just too cartoony for my liking.
I just love it
by Pended a on 2017/01/01 17:48
Masonj
Worth it
by Pd123asd on 2016/12/28 14:40
This game is definitely worth your money and time. Highly recommend.
AMAZING
by Trainz are cool! on 2016/12/18 03:51
I LOVE this game! This game shows the best physics I've ever seen on a rocket game! I think next the developers should make a simple boats game to create ships and submarines and it would be a good addition to the three games.
This is such an amazing game...
by =ForrestFire= on 2016/12/05 00:17
I love all of it. Only wish the items menu was a little easier to use, and the wheel mechanics are a bit off, but besides that it's completely accurate on how much effort it takes to get something to work.
Sooooooo good
by Jon Kessler on 2016/11/30 20:59
This I one of the best games for mobile I have ever played. Unlike most mobile rocket games it dose not try to go 3D, wich is a good thing. There is a game called kerble space program for computers that I have not played, but I did look at some videos of people playing it. And it is cinda like this game in 3D. Love the challenges in the game as much as the sandbox and to give you an idea of the Humor in this game this is what the first page of the manual in my words: congratulations on looking at this thing most people just skip it. Amazing game and tons of humor if you look closely!
I love it!
by Lukephant on 2016/11/07 23:24
I watched a YouTuber play this game and I always wanted to play kerbal space program so when I saw that this game was for mobile I immediately bought it. It's a lot like kerbal space program and I'm glad it's for mobile. It is a very fun game and it may not be worth the money too some people but I think it's still very fun!
Great game!
by robert-e on 2016/09/16 06:28
This game is a blast! Spent plenty of hours messing around with it. Could use more parts and and an update that allows for more than two pieces to be connected to each other.
Needs something...
by Gamebuilder on 2016/08/12 12:22
I think you should add fairings to the game like those fairings in ksp
Yes!..Space Station creation
by Weehoo on 2016/06/25 05:44
This game needs warheads and random UFO encounters 🤓.
Awesome
by Dnidxbfs on 2016/06/04 15:00
This game is awesome and great if you obsess over it in the first 72 hours of owning it, but then it gets a but boring and sometimes the long space travel takes forever, especially when you are try to match orbit with a planet but still get the game
Great, but crashes
by HellomynameisBoba on 2016/05/27 17:05
I love this game so much and think it might be the best game on the App Store but recently it has been crashing on my iPad mini after I play for approx. 6 minutes. Devs, if you are reading this, please fix the crashing so I can continue to enjoy this wonderful game you have created. If it wasn't for the crashing, I would give this game 5 stars. Thank you for your time.
Doesn't rotate.

No fun to use phone app on tablet. Even if it doesn't take up the whole screen it should at least rotate.
This game is so much fun!!!
by Chadspace999 on 2016/05/26 00:55
This game is so much fun because you can build rockets engineer rockets design rockets and go into other planets! You can also download mods from Reddit or enjoy exploring planets and much more more planets are available from Reddit mod shop!! I recommend this science rocket game for everyone who love space and science and like to learn more about space flight!!
5stars
by Suckadickscribblenauts on 2016/05/25 20:29
Very fun game the only thing I hate is the connection I think we should be able to connect to 2 points not just 1 other than that 5 stars
YES, but no, at the same time.
by CoverFireSix on 2016/05/23 13:11
I like the whole game in general, as it is very well built, but it doesn't have enough parts. I would like some more parts. Maybe include the ones from the PC version as well?
Love it
by ryry51 on 2016/05/20 06:46
Great game. Very fun and educational. Just needs iCloud support
Consider

Hey, I am a huge fan of both simple planes and simple rockets, but my favorite game of yours is kernel space program!! You should seriously consider releasing KSP for iPhone 6/6s (because they as of right now have better processing power). I don't know the possibilities of this, but if you price it at around $7 I bet you would make tones off it!
PERFECT GAME
by Pink Sheep #19372937283728 on 2016/05/08 15:42
Thank you, thank you for the amazing game... I have been looking for a mobile KSP ever since I got it. PERFECT game.
PLEASE READ!! Sweet! But...
by Mr. Rocket exploder on 2016/04/14 19:13
Ok so 1. This gamer is awesome! 2. The fact that if you want to make a rocket to go to like smaturn, you have to make a HUGE rocket... And you cant connect more than once to everythnig. :/ but when you want the make something detach it make be touching something else so please make a thing were you can choose to attach it or not. Ps. Did i say this game is awesome?
LOVE IT
by Mastership84 on 2016/04/07 02:54
I absolutely love this game, I play it every day. My only request is that you add a command pod in the items list so you can send more than one satellite, lander or rover on one ship. Also flags so I can make a landing and return mission
Where's smuto?
by Person1213 on 2016/04/07 01:07
why isn't Pluto on here?? I wanted to go to Pluto even though they claim it's not a planet anymore you should still have it in your game! Now my dreams have been ruined once again by communist pigs!!
Really fun! But it could use...
by Kawaii person on 2016/04/01 22:30
I only recently started using this game, but so far, it's great! I already got a probe on the moon (smoon in game) and have satellites orbiting Earth and Mars. But my only problem is the lack of more complex peaces to attach to your ship (for example, I would like it if they added satellite dishes, smaller parts of already existing objects, and grappling hooks just to name a few.). Otherwise, I think the game is great!
Great
by RileySW on 2016/04/01 02:46
Great!!!
Boss
by Cj110000 on 2016/03/24 22:57
Awesome
3D it needs this feature
by Halosupporteranddefender on 2016/03/21 15:15
It would be awesome if you guys made it 3D
Ok
by Jamestireler on 2016/03/17 04:00
This is an ok game, but more of a time waster. The reason I say this is because it's easy to go in a straight line, but without help saying boost here, how long, and at what direction, its difficulty to do much else sky rockets (no pun intended). Otherwise great game in design, look, and mechanics
Awesome!
by ChaseRU2 on 2016/03/16 21:45
So addicting! As you learn the physics and builds, it gets even more fun. Challenging, educational, fun. Worth it!
SO COOL
by It is cool and awsome on 2016/03/16 16:37
A very realistic game and it's very very fun.
Needs Controls Like PC
by Hospital bug, please fix. on 2016/03/13 04:17
I love this game to death. But I have one problem with it on mobile. On the computer, even when you lock the gimbal, you can still use RCS. This needs to be added into the mobile version as well. Otherwise, great game and hours upon hours of fun.
Just........WOW!
by Hrndiso I on 2015/10/30 03:53
I like rocket games but hate how simple it they can be. This is the perfect game for the adult engineer. Build a cool multi stage rocket and fly? Can you get much better then that!?! The replay value is endless. I've been making all kinds of cool stuff you can even pretend that you are going thru a roll program. Oh man....it's like they made this game just for me! After I clean the front of my pants I'm going to try the plane game that they have, I already downloaded it but I'm holding off as long as I can because I'm just so into this rocket game right now. To the developers of this game: Games like these should be a staple in the industry, that is; games where a grown up can play with Legos. What I mean is Legos that are a little more advanced. I'm bet your guys could make a sick drag racing game with all the crazy motor mods....with details down to vacuum differences when changing valve angle! Keep up the great work. This game riggidy rules! Miggidy mawfu(k€rs!
Meh
by MAN IN THE M00N on 2015/07/13 02:11
The orbital mechanics are quite fun to mess around with and the spacecraft designs are pretty cool, but one thing I really don't like is how you can't stack certain parts on top of others. For example if you wanted to do an Apollo style mission, you really can't make it realistic because you can't stack a docking port for some reason so you have to put in on the side which makes it look kinda dumb. Also something that irks me (even though you can't change it) is the 2-D world and how planet rotation is not taken into account because it is a top-view of the S(m)olar System. It also makes it so you have to cram stuff onto your main craft. You should make it able to have in-line docking ports and plugs as well as being able to put stuff on the outside of the RCS thrusters and solar panels (like struts so it kinda looks like a fairing.) Also some kind of fairing system would be nice to add some type of atmospheric stability and maybe some fins as well so you don't have to use RCS in atmo. I think these should be easy to implement since you can stack other parts in-line and I would really think they would improve the game. I hope you read this because it would really make this game if these were to be added. Other than the suggestions it is a great game and has the potential to be the Kerbal Space Program IOS equivalent.
Please read
by The ISS Man on 2017/08/06 15:22
Could you please add dwarf planets and more moons. When building a rocket, could you please add more parts to add a customizable aspect to the game. When launching a rocket the different parts tend to "fray" while flying. I'm currently building the ISS and it has over 30 docks and counting. When I build it the game makes it possible to dock satellites at an angle, over time this makes the space station become curved and wobbly. Could you please make the docks more stiff and add a button that says,"Straighten all dock." When I was trying to land on Smalley's Comet, it said I had an encounter when I really didn't. I think this is a great game. You don't find many game on the AppStore with this capability. I hope you will read these request and take them into your considerations. Thank you.
Please read, good info for potential buyer
by VaderInvader03 on 2017/09/18 12:21
It is the best game I ever played. It takes a while before you get everything but then it is awesome. I rank it up there with or past Minecraft and Clash of Clans (for me that means a lot) the thing is though it is relatively simple I do not recommend it for young children. They will not get it, give up and never look at it again. Also it sometimes crashes, which is really annoying because whatever ship you were on disappears. But it does save the design of whichever ship you last launched. Please fix the crashing but other than that it is awesome.
Sooooooo good
by Jon Kessler on 2016/11/30 20:59
This I one of the best games for mobile I have ever played. Unlike most mobile rocket games it dose not try to go 3D, wich is a good thing. There is a game called kerble space program for computers that I have not played, but I did look at some videos of people playing it. And it is cinda like this game in 3D. Love the challenges in the game as much as the sandbox and to give you an idea of the Humor in this game this is what the first page of the manual in my words: congratulations on looking at this thing most people just skip it. Amazing game and tons of humor if you look closely!
AMAZING GAME, Could use more
by Potato Fridge on 2016/02/07 22:18
I absolutely love this game super simplified version of Ksp another great game simplified onto mobile, completed all mission been to all planets (not smaleys comet, Yet!) but been running out of things to do 3 Satellite, 4 "rovers" games fun but lost its spark add some more parts and mix up the gameplay a little, always looking forward to new updates and new parts sattelite was one of my favorites but could really use some more parts or many anouther planet or dwarf planet (hint hint "Pluto") Overall great game looking forward to more
Love the game, one problem
by Dnhduddvvvdhd on 2018/03/16 22:04
I absolutely love the game. There is only one aspect of the game which I can not accomplish. It is the rendezvous with satellites I’ll either be too high or too low. With the launch of SimpleRockets2 I ask you to please incorporate a navigation system to smoothly guide your rocket to the target so long that the so called target also has a navigation system on board and is in the same planets gravitational pull. Thank you for reading and I hope to see this In SimpleRockets2.
So, fun
by Fun cool guy😎 on 2016/01/23 05:51
This is really fun, but it need a few more things, #1 - A Claw Grabber, so u can pick things up, different sizes and specialties, like small, big, and large, and grapple claw (small), moveable armlike claw (big) and stationary claw (large), #2 it needs a way to dig like a drill, or a jackhammer thing, and #3 it needs randomly generated space stations and outposts at each planet (on a different mode, not on sandbox), other than that it's an awsome game and I would definitely recommend that if ur looking at this and don't know if u should get it, ITS "OUT OF THIS WORLD" lol. srry, like puns
Wow.
by Tbob424 on 2015/07/05 23:40
First off I want to say this is a brilliant game based off of Kerbel Space Program. (Both are amazing) The only problem is that there is no objective after the missions like for example: I get something to orbit the Smoon right? Well there are no scientific equipment you can add so there's nothing you can really do. If they added let's say... Idk a barometer? Thermometer? Maybe some camera type thing with communication antennas so you could transfer data. But other than that this game is amazing!
Awesome game!
by ReactiveAlkali on 2015/07/09 09:09
This is one of the best simulation games I've ever played and I have some ideas that might make it better. Maybe you could add reentry effects, it doesn't have to be fancy just to make it look cool. Also, maybe you could add fairings so the rocket doesn't break as much. One last thing you could add is a career mode. These are just suggestions that I wanted you guys to see. Keep up the fantastic work.
Really fun! But it could use...

by This is really cool! on 2017/09/05 01:59
First off, this game is worth every cent I put into it. Second, please fix struts. If I want to attach multiple struts to each other, the only will attach to one, and the whole thing will go haywire. Third, while mod support is great, it could be better. Just look at your other game, Simpleplanes. That has amazing mod support. If you could implement that into this, then that would be amazing.
Great game!!
by Rab921 on 2015/09/21 03:48
This game is really a great game, my favorite app actually. Based on real life physics, the game really did a good job capturing all the features of space navigation reality. It strongly resembles a similar game on steam "Kerbal Space Program" Simple rockets have most of the features and all the physics but costs $40 less. There is only 1 feature that ticks me off, and that's the warp restrictions. It takes forever to orbit and escape with the warp restrictions. Also note to the creators/developers, I've been waiting for an update for awhile. Some new parts and scenarios would be nice. All in all the game is fantastic it has a perfect physic design and creatively put together to resemble our solar system. Love the game, absolutely fantastic. A++
Awesome!!!
by Kshogun on 2017/09/30 04:08
This game is amazing, and it has an unbeatable price!!! It taught me a lot of basic rocket science while having fun. The 2 things I would add though would be multiple attachment points, for stability, and the ability to create and unlock locations, like simple planes. Other than that, this is one of the best space games and mobile games I've seen!

Great, but crashes
by HellomynameisBoba on 2016/05/27 17:05
I love this game so much and think it might be the best game on the App Store but recently it has been crashing on my iPad mini after I play for approx. 6 minutes. Devs, if you are reading this, please fix the crashing so I can continue to enjoy this wonderful game you have created. If it wasn't for the crashing, I would give this game 5 stars. Thank you for your time.

Great game but could have improvements
by Space killer of death on 2015/12/06 02:10
I REALLY like this game. But one thing that really sticks out is smalleys commet. When you look at it, it's just shaking to death. It would also be good if you could make a way to launch from the new moons and comets. I have 0 idea what they look like. I also thing something like fairing of re-entry effect would be nice.

by Epik virus 849361$,$: on 2015/06/22 18:34
This is a very good game with a ton of things to do. There is nothing to say bad about this game other than the satellites are very hard to combine/dock. In my opinion the price is great for a game like this. Simple, yet complex. Even after I have beaten every mission, I still mess around with the sandbox for hours. I could not ask for a simpler, better game.
I love it!
by Lukephant on 2016/11/07 23:24
I watched a YouTuber play this game and I always wanted to play kerbal space program so when I saw that this game was for mobile I immediately bought it. It's a lot like kerbal space program and I'm glad it's for mobile. It is a very fun game and it may not be worth the money too some people but I think it's still very fun!
Incredible!!!!
by Jimmyshome310 on 2017/02/07 22:38
This game is amazing. My son loves space. He begged me to get him the game, and I'm glad I did. He plays it all day and he loves to come sit on my lap we build rockets together. We've not had many successes😅 but it's the time that I get to spend with him that matters, if you are reading this please buy this game, I promise you, you won't regret it
Fun, Easy, and Informative
by warmphase on 2015/10/09 03:10
The challenges build up simply, making it very playable. Build and fly simple rockets to achieve goals. Then build on your knowledge slowly with discoveries you make on each successful mission. I've also really enjoyed learning a little bit about orbital mechanics as I send these rockets up.
🚀Amazing🚀
by C sthehdthrhxgjr on 2015/06/28 15:33
🚀This game is something that you can spend hours on. let's go to the moon. First try doesn't work let me try again and again and again then before you know it you have been playing for hours. This game is a great game to play anywhere at anytime.🚀
Bad bug
by 56wrty329 on 2019/02/15 14:27
You can't do this and have all parts attach ============ I. I. I. I. I ============ Those parts on the top and bottom are the struts, and those parts in the middle are the detacher's. Here's the problem, only one of them can attach on both ends for some weird reason I think it's the way the game handles multiple piece segments. (B.t.w I found that the first piece that you place is going to be the dominant one in is going to be the one that will attach) Anyway this can lead to some pretty flimsy rockets if they're too big, please fix this!!! (even know you're probably going to have to entirely reprogram the way the game handles parts connecting)
AWESOME GAME!
by Happy Jc's butt on 2018/12/01 22:15
Most realistic rocket simulating game I have ever played! It is so fun trying to build a better rocket to get to different places and learn from that attempt and build your rocket better and hopefully make it. Some things that I would like to be added is a rotating item and customizable fuel blocks. Thanks,
Really fun but has bugs that haven’t been fixed
by Chris Norling on 2018/10/26 15:24
RCS thrusters are really broken (iPhone 7) and it’s like I have to use a force touch to maneuver my sat. Makes the task extremely difficult. I’m sure the dev is busy working on SR2 but it would be awesome if this could be fixed. I’m not sure if it’s worth it anymore since most of these reviews are years old but I would appreciate it.
Best Space Sim Ever
by SciFi-Gamer3546 on 2015/11/17 23:28
This is the best and most realistic space simulator I have ever played!!🚀🚀🚀🚀 it's fun and can be challenging which makes it even more.😊😊😊☺️ I also think it would be cool if Jundroo updated the game every time NASA came out with new inventions (like maybe a nuclear powered thruster if they ever invent one) 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
This is a great game!
by Seamisian on 2018/08/22 03:07
This is a groundbreaking game that can potentially teach you about rocket science and lets you launch a vast fleet of spaceships to explore the solar system. The best part about it is that it takes up very little storage! I would definitely recommend this masterpiece.
Don't know what the hype is all about
by Tfaurie on 2017/08/09 11:26
This is a 99cents game at most, to sum it up quickly, you put and engine and a fuel tank and you're good to go. The selection and building process can be very confusing and irritating because it's impossible to select the specific piece of the rocket you want to move. Really wish I could get my money back on this one.
Awesome
by Dnidxbfs on 2016/06/04 15:00
This game is awesome and great if you obsess over it in the first 72 hours of owning it, but then it gets a but boring and sometimes the long space travel takes forever, especially when you are try to match orbit with a planet but still get the game
Bug with the heading buttons.
by Monster maker 2345: on 2019/04/14 02:42
During any docking missions the bottom heading buttons don’t work. The rotate left and right buttons along with the reverse buttons don’t work on iPhone 8 on the latest software. It’s really frustrating to not be able to use those buttons as the missions require it to complete. Otherwise it’s a super fun great game! Please fix!
Fun game but a HUGE flaw
by mcg1969 on 2019/03/16 02:34
There is a control thing where you can drag an arrow around a circle to point your ship in that direction but it is majorly flawed. The engines turn the ship in that direction but don’t stop pushing until it is already past he arrow. If you know anything about space, it’s going to take a long time to point the ship in the right direction. This destroys th whole game and plus that the manual arrows can’t be pressed so your screwed. Fix this problem please
Awesome Game! Just one suggestion.
by 123456789012A on 2015/12/17 02:43
This game is the most awesome space simulator I have played. The only thing I wish is in the game is the weight of all of the parts and the power of the thrusters were listed in the game. Even though this isn't in the game this is still a awesome game.
Needs Controls Like PC
by Hospital bug, please fix. on 2016/03/13 04:17
I love this game to death. But I have one problem with it on mobile. On the computer, even when you lock the gimbal, you can still use RCS. This needs to be added into the mobile version as well. Otherwise, great game and hours upon hours of fun.
I Love it
by Thunderhawk100 on 2015/08/28 04:38
It worth it all. It has great physics, graphics, and it runs smoothly. I just wish their were more solar systems and galaxy's because I finely made it outa the system to find their is nothing nothing and more... Yup nothing. And we want more parts mods and STUFF!!!!!
Good game, but needs more!
by Wesley McDonald on 2018/03/06 22:07
It’s fun and exiting! But needs more options and parts for editing and building your rocket. I doubt this plea will be heard but if it is that would be greatly appreciated. Also if you add more you could up the game price to $4.99
Very fun
by A future pilot on 2017/04/01 14:45
I like this game because of its insane physics engine. I highly recommend this game for people searching for a realistic, fun mobile game. Real rocket science is adopted into the game making it a challenge. Highly recommend the tutorials, for they are very helpful.
Fix screen ratio bug!!!
by jamespierce95 on 2018/06/02 02:15
EDIT: They fixed the issue! 5 stars all the way!! Absolutely love this game but now it’s unplayable because the screen ratio is all jacked up. Giving one star to hopefully draw attention to the issue.
Great Game thanks Jundroo!!!!!
by SimpleRockets21 on 2018/03/30 22:19
Thanks! I will be buying every SimpleRockets and I love this game! I love the mods option, rockets, realism, and I the fun! The only thing I would want in SimpleRockets 2, is for sure mods, but also maybe keyboard and mouse support? So it’s more like a Rocket ship control deck. Thanks again Jundroo!
Wow
by Aliens8 on 2015/12/04 04:08
Amazing but I have suggestions such as adding a campaign to follow and an out of solar system target, tau ceti e could be a target where you have to populate another planet and get to it with ion engines of a mission to explore the Oort cloud, if there is an Oort Cloud make it so u can refuel rcs over there. One word, solar sail!
Just purchased, can’t play!
by Zbomb33 on 2018/06/01 23:16
Wish I had read recent reviews, unplayable on my 7plus due to screen ratio bug. I will give more stars if I can ever play the game! Update: quick response from the developer, fixed a few days later. Having a ton of fun now!
Great game but needs...
by Lol:)MAGIC on 2017/02/25 19:06
This game needs more rocket customizations to make it better for space travel. There is a new solar system that we found called Trappist-1 it would be amazing if you guys could put that in the game. P.S. thanks for reading
This is such an amazing game...
by =ForrestFire= on 2016/12/05 00:17
I love all of it. Only wish the items menu was a little easier to use, and the wheel mechanics are a bit off, but besides that it's completely accurate on how much effort it takes to get something to work.
Great game!
by robert-e on 2016/09/16 06:28
This game is a blast! Spent plenty of hours messing around with it. Could use more parts and and an update that allows for more than two pieces to be connected to each other.
Resolution issues
by Harlow112 on 2018/06/01 20:56
So I’m on a iPhone 6 Plus and my screen doesn’t adapt to the right resolution, my throttle and the time warp are completely gone I’ve tried uninstalling it even soft resetting my phone Help
Best IOS game ever made!!!
by kandip on 2017/08/24 00:00
I love this game so much! I can't even explain how much I love this game! But could you add some more advanced technology to add on the space crafts? Also add rotation to planets. But honestly I would rate this game 10 stars if I could!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
LOVE IT
by Mastership84 on 2016/04/07 02:54
I absolutely love this game, I play it every day. My only request is that you add a command pod in the items list so you can send more than one satellite, lander or rover on one ship. Also flags so I can make a landing and return mission
5stars
by Suckadickscribblenauts on 2016/05/25 20:29
Very fun game the only thing I hate is the connection I think we should be able to connect to 2 points not just 1 other than that 5 stars

Description
Be sure to check our new game, SimplePlanes. Build airplanes and test them with realistic physics and see how they fly. You can find it on the App Store now or check out the website at http://www.SimplePlanes.com Design your own rocket ships. Blast off into space. Explore the solar system. See if you have what it takes to be a rocket scientist. CREATE Choose and connect parts together to build rocket ships. You can choose from a variety of rocket engines, fuel tanks, and other gizmos. You can even build rovers with powered wheels. You are only limited by your imagination. EXPLORE Blast off from any planet you want. You can fly through the intense atmosphere of Venus, or you can take advantage of the low gravity of Mercury. Whip around the sun and launch yourself out to the far reaches of the solar system. CHALLENGES Several challenges are built into the game so you can see who can go the fastest, fly the farthest, orbit with the least amount of fuel, land on the moon, and so much more. rocket SCIENCE Kepler wrote the equations 400 years ago, and SimpleRockets uses those equations to model extremely realistic orbital physics. Players will learn about rocket science and astrodynamics while they are having a blast exploring the solar system. This makes SimpleRockets ideal for the classroom, or as a healthy alternative to the barrage of brainless games available on the App Store.

Bug with the heading buttons.
by Monster maker 2345: on 2019/04/14 02:42
During any docking missions the bottom heading buttons don’t work. The rotate left and right buttons along with the reverse buttons don’t work on iPhone 8 on the latest software. It’s really frustrating to not be able to use those buttons as the missions require it to complete. Otherwise it’s a super fun great game! Please fix!
I LOVE THIS GAME
by Julie Ann in Ohio on 2019/04/07 15:20
I have been playing this game for years now and I can say that this is the best game for traveling space on your phone. If you did not buy this game BUY IT NOW!
Station
by Allglad on 2019/03/29 18:36
** update ** The below review was true till I started to learn the tricks to addd more than 1 Dock Plugs & stuff....now I am getting the hang of it...really tricky. I wish there a way to turn off orbit text...makes it hard to see vehicles...but that’s minor compared to not even getting Vehicles to orbit without explosions. Great game...changed from 1* to 5... ***update** I’ve played Space Agency.......Spaceflight simulator...and others getting to build at least the start of a station....which is something like 2 solar...4 batteries...rcs on the station and usually at least 3 connection docks minimum...and 2 ion drives....plus a section that has a rocket to move the station &/or the rocket separately from the station....and no game like this is any where near as complicated as this game. Only 1 station connection can be made with the station I’ve been trying.....and heck I still can’t launch past 10k height. The rubber like connections for the side connectors make things unbelievably difficult to space things out. Plus no #’s on rocket power, fuel levels, or weight values. I’m so close to giving up after 4 days with hours of trying every day. Lack of fairings &/or struts to keep the rockets from being so rubbery sure is a step...into the not simple. Moving around and zooming on the rocket construction area is more difficult than any other game I’ve seen like it..or any other software since before the year 2000...and the lack of settings to have more grid squares also helps make things the most difficult that I can think of...the dang side panel blocks parts unless building that section last. Why this game has side connectors I only assume is for more explosions...otherwise they look near useless. Even with only 2 stages and no side boosters the rockets still can’t stay side by side..it’s like building rockets of jello....really? Yes. I could do this simple station in 10 min or less on any other game like it.... It’s too NOT SimpleRockets...it’s getting to look to be ToodamnNOTSimpleRockets!! In my perspective. Well I did it...no not what I wanted. I didn’t try for the full station I wanted. I just did everything except the extra rocket...it took 37 each super sized fuel sections & super size rockets...rcs...too much rcs...usually I only use rcs after reaching apoapsis or when I’m close (in other games to a stable orbit (but not close for this game) to a complete orbit this launch took close to 50% rcs and I have enough force to take me to apoapsis...but I still need to set orbit or I’ll crash. What? Now that I passed the stage for my ion rockets I can’t restart them? ....that’s it I have to 1 * this junk game. Also please rename the game to difficultrockets so others know before attempting to play. ...going on 6 days trying to launch the start of a basic station...no luck...I’ve gotten to apoapsis....but so little fuel left to establish a stable orbit I had to quit....8 days now. I should delete this lame game for good...every time I think hey maybe this will do it...and nope. Omg on the 8th day I got the almost a station up. No extra rocket. ....I still have 1/2 fuel and around 90%rcs....with apo-hight of 165 and peri of 118.....shouldn’t take much more to get the orbit more stable. ...still omg it’s like jello rockets!! I did finally manage using side booster disconnectors also...man they are so complicated though and you can’t tell what fuel is what...it only displays main fuel...no side booster levels. ....common way too difficult!! OMM!! It’s impossible to cycle through stages to allow for reigniting engines? Yep I am sure it’s undoable as is. This game is unplayable. At the least it should be possible to cycle trough stages after getting out of atmosphere...which would allow turning on and off things...at the most it should be possible to rearrange the existing stages....plus’s to all the other problems of the game. What a promising game that’s way to difficult in almost every way. I’ll check back for updates weekly or until something better comes along...like SpaceAgency 2. I’m done trying to play as is...I give up.
Fun game but a HUGE flaw
by mcg1969 on 2019/03/16 02:34
There is a control thing where you can drag an arrow around a circle to point your ship in that direction but it is majorly flawed. The engines turn the ship in that direction but don’t stop pushing until it is already past he arrow. If you know anything about space, it’s going to take a long time to point the ship in the right direction. This destroys th whole game and plus that the manual arrows can’t be pressed so your screwed. Fix this problem please
Like it...
by husky6273 on 2019/02/18 01:58
Like it but map is a rip-off of Spaceflight Simulator
Bad bug
by 56wrty329 on 2019/02/15 14:27
You can't do this and have all parts attach ============ I. I. I. I. I ============ Those parts on the top and bottom are the struts, and those parts in the middle are the detacher's. Here's the problem, only one of them can attach on both ends for some weird reason I think it's the way the game handles multiple piece segments. (B.t.w I found that the first piece that you place is going to be the dominant one in is going to be the one that will attach) Anyway this can lead to some pretty flimsy rockets if they're too big, please fix this!!! (even know you're probably going to have to entirely reprogram the way the game handles parts connecting)
Desperately needs an update
by Brandon24201isepic on 2019/01/22 03:05
Game doesn’t work properly anymore, can’t turn left or right, it’s lagged, I press it and it works like 40 seconds later, everything’s breaking, and it’s sad to see this game being so ignored, it needs a bug fix badly
No good on ipad
by kiwi_outdoors on 2019/01/13 01:40
Willnot rotate to allow play in lndscape format- wasted my $3
Please... add... MOONS IN THE SELECT MENU IN SANDBOX MODE!
by Gabriel 1908 on 2019/01/11 01:38
Add the moons of Jupiter and Saturn In the Planet Select in sandbox mode. PLZ! LOVE this app. AND F**K YOU BA****** WHO HATE THIS GAME!!
Got me into KSP
by Cool dude 19😎 on 2018/12/29 23:49
So I got this game when I was sick a while ago, and have been playing ever since. I feel so accomplished getting rockets into orbits. I decided to get KSP from this game.
AWESOME GAME!
by Happy Jc's butt on 2018/12/01 22:15
Most realistic rocket simulating game I have ever played! It is so fun trying to build a better rocket to get to different places and learn from that attempt and build your rocket better and hopefully make it. Some things that I would like to be added is a rotating item and customizable fuel blocks. Thanks,
Fun but.......
by qegxndjdjxjfhdh on 2018/11/25 04:07
It is fun but I would not pay for it even though I did,lol
Best game I’ve ever played.
by Oebrvax7&? on 2018/11/06 06:47
Space station around Mars!
Really fun but has bugs that haven’t been fixed
by Chris Norling on 2018/10/26 15:24
RCS thrusters are really broken (iPhone 7) and it’s like I have to use a force touch to maneuver my sat. Makes the task extremely difficult. I’m sure the dev is busy working on SR2 but it would be awesome if this could be fixed. I’m not sure if it’s worth it anymore since most of these reviews are years old but I would appreciate it.
Still fantastic!
by dmc75287 on 2018/09/13 14:21
SR2 will be out soon but SR1 is still great at teaching the fundamentals of orbital mechanics. Plus, it's a lot of fun! It's only rocket science.
Please upgrade this app
by imterpid yellow 46738 on 2018/09/03 21:51
The orbital mechanics are to bad
This game is great
by z3r01516 on 2018/09/03 20:13
If you like this game than you will love a game called ksp
Great but one bug
by Legend599 on 2018/08/29 01:44
So the game is great but I have a major delay on the lean buttons on the very bottom.
This is a great game!
by Seamisian on 2018/08/22 03:07
This is a groundbreaking game that can potentially teach you about rocket science and lets you launch a vast fleet of spaceships to explore the solar system. The best part about it is that it takes up very little storage! I would definitely recommend this masterpiece.
Waste
by Dantm what on 2018/08/16 19:51
Ok, so this game may have more parts and more planets and the earth has water, but space flight simulator is free and has better controls, try it before this, also there’s gonna possible be multiplayer in it, also you could get kerbal space program (like the game recommends) and on PS4 if you have one it’s only like $42 with tax, and apparently there’s a discount code, or if you can’t get it, wait for simple rockets 2, it seems MUCH better.
Great game takes a bit to learn how to do advanced manuvers
by nachocheesman on 2018/07/22 16:18
When I first got the game I skipped threw all of the missions and the game was really hard. I went back latter and it changed the way I play.
Add 3D
by Maxvaldes Iv on 2018/06/30 01:56
Cool Game but I want 3D
Controls
by LED. Man on 2018/06/20 04:09
Bottom row of controls do not work very well, great game anyway!
Can’t wait
by Hello360jr on 2018/06/14 15:48
My god I can’t wait for SimpleRockets 2
Latest update ruined RCS
by Bumble1022! on 2018/06/12 15:44
The bottom row of controls only works if you tap the top of the button making rcs navigation difficult. Please fix
Thanks for fixing it!!!
by moonrock44 on 2018/06/10 15:10
Now I can effectively make and drive a rocket. Thank you so much
Great game
by Clash Warlords YT on 2018/06/04 15:38
I like the game A LOT. Great game. Although could you please make the button size bigger.
Latest update makes game unplayable
by natesax7 on 2018/06/02 21:30
Love this game! The last update, however, set the screen zoomed in and off center to the point where you can't see most of the on screen controls. Please fix this! I was just about to do a 'Smoon' landing mission. (I'll change this to a 5 star review when you do) EDIT: update fixed screen issue! Thank you!
Fix screen ratio bug!!!
by jamespierce95 on 2018/06/02 02:15
EDIT: They fixed the issue! 5 stars all the way!! Absolutely love this game but now it’s unplayable because the screen ratio is all jacked up. Giving one star to hopefully draw attention to the issue.
Just purchased, can’t play!
by Zbomb33 on 2018/06/01 23:16
Wish I had read recent reviews, unplayable on my 7plus due to screen ratio bug. I will give more stars if I can ever play the game! Update: quick response from the developer, fixed a few days later. Having a ton of fun now!
Resolution issues
by Harlow112 on 2018/06/01 20:56
So I’m on a iPhone 6 Plus and my screen doesn’t adapt to the right resolution, my throttle and the time warp are completely gone I’ve tried uninstalling it even soft resetting my phone Help
Game doesn’t fit to iPhone 7 Plus screen
by DI2ID on 2018/06/01 12:11
Bought. Installed. Opened the game only to have everything off centered...Reinstalled. Nothing changed.
Good game but new update added a problem
by +super sonic on 2018/06/01 00:18
So this game is worth it but my screen is all jacked up so if I could get some help on that it would be nice
Please fix the enlarged screen
by القناااااااااااص on 2018/05/30 02:32
After updating the game to the one that has SimpleRockets 2 link, the screen just zoomed in and is not well calibrated. I can't play anymore because I can't view stages button nor ignition button. Please fix.
Last update broke it :(
by K2David121 on 2018/05/29 10:31
Was a 5 star game but now the top part of the screen is cut off and vital info can not be seen. May work on the X with the different dimensions but doesn’t on a iP7+.
Latest update
by Rathon Sector on 2018/05/28 22:50
This could be from my gen4 iPad but the screen is off after the may2018 update. The top of the screen is a few inches lower then the top of the iPad screen.
Buggy
by Thatt White Girl on 2018/05/28 16:39
Since the new update, the screen is super zoomed in and I can’t do anything. I have an iPhone 7+. P.s. is simple rockets 2 going to be on iOS?
They Gave Up
by FROSTYxICY on 2018/05/15 08:19
Hasn’t been updated in 2yrs, the game get’s kinda bland it would be nice if they added more stuff. But other than that they have up on the game.
Can’t even get the app back
by XxRenedyxX on 2018/04/24 16:03
I bought this game like a month ago and now I can’t even download it back and also same problem with the simple plane or something like that. Please help
Meh...
by TheOneAndOnly, Cre8or on 2018/04/03 03:36
I loved this game at first. I've been playing since it had come out- but there is an absence of something. The creator(s) of this game are not adding updates! FOR TWO TEARS. Come on guys, I saw more potential and I know you can do it. Don't let the new game, Spaceflight Simulator beat you up too much. They will catch up. I promise
Great Game thanks Jundroo!!!!!
by SimpleRockets21 on 2018/03/30 22:19
Thanks! I will be buying every SimpleRockets and I love this game! I love the mods option, rockets, realism, and I the fun! The only thing I would want in SimpleRockets 2, is for sure mods, but also maybe keyboard and mouse support? So it’s more like a Rocket ship control deck. Thanks again Jundroo!
Love the game, one problem
by Dnhduddvvvdhd on 2018/03/16 22:04
I absolutely love the game. There is only one aspect of the game which I can not accomplish. It is the rendezvous with satellites I’ll either be too high or too low. With the launch of SimpleRockets2 I ask you to please incorporate a navigation system to smoothly guide your rocket to the target so long that the so called target also has a navigation system on board and is in the same planets gravitational pull. Thank you for reading and I hope to see this In SimpleRockets2.
Good game, but needs more!
by Wesley McDonald on 2018/03/06 22:07
It’s fun and exiting! But needs more options and parts for editing and building your rocket. I doubt this plea will be heard but if it is that would be greatly appreciated. Also if you add more you could up the game price to $4.99
Awesome game
by IceburgSandwich on 2018/03/03 00:20
This game has taught me alot about physics and how fun it is it to play with it.
Idea for a game PLEASE read
by ThePickLe69 on 2018/02/26 07:43
I love this game. But there should be a game that is like this but it is a burning city simulator, where you have to start a fire and see if you can burn down bigger cities as you go on.
ADD THIS IN SP 2
by Ejejdvjrhfhfjfndndjrnfbf on 2018/02/10 01:11
WINGS AND SHUTTLE PARTS PLEASE. ALSO ADD EVA ABILITY
This game gets a sequel!
by Zero (a boy) -:- on 2018/02/07 16:25
As some of you have heard Jundroo has announced Simplerockets 2! That will be 3D and stuff! Yes it's coming this year.
Great game
by Unstable- t on 2017/12/22 16:21
I love the way you install mods first off! This is an extremely addictive game. I haven't been able to put it down for 2 years now.
Great game
by Fjeheuue on 2017/12/14 21:36
Kinda like a mini version of kerbal space program (which is a great game btw)
Played KSP?
by ΑΨΣSΘΜΞ on 2017/11/16 18:37
This is like a 2D, pow powered version of KSP. definitely a good game
Awesome!!!
by Kshogun on 2017/09/30 04:08
This game is amazing, and it has an unbeatable price!!! It taught me a lot of basic rocket science while having fun. The 2 things I would add though would be multiple attachment points, for stability, and the ability to create and unlock locations, like simple planes. Other than that, this is one of the best space games and mobile games I've seen!
Please read, good info for potential buyer
by VaderInvader03 on 2017/09/18 12:21
It is the best game I ever played. It takes a while before you get everything but then it is awesome. I rank it up there with or past Minecraft and Clash of Clans (for me that means a lot) the thing is though it is relatively simple I do not recommend it for young children. They will not get it, give up and never look at it again. Also it sometimes crashes, which is really annoying because whatever ship you were on disappears. But it does save the design of whichever ship you last launched. Please fix the crashing but other than that it is awesome.
I LOVE IT
by Dead destroyer on 2017/09/17 21:26
This game is really fun but please put in a command pod in the craft please
Best game ever
by 038403740 on 2017/09/07 21:25
I don't write reviews much, but when I do, it's a good game
Great game but..
by This is really cool! on 2017/09/05 01:59
First off, this game is worth every cent I put into it. Second, please fix struts. If I want to attach multiple struts to each other, the only will attach to one, and the whole thing will go haywire. Third, while mod support is great, it could be better. Just look at your other game, Simpleplanes. That has amazing mod support. If you could implement that into this, then that would be amazing.
Update
by Opie1134 on 2017/08/27 18:57
Update please
Best IOS game ever made!!!
by kandip on 2017/08/24 00:00
I love this game so much! I can't even explain how much I love this game! But could you add some more advanced technology to add on the space crafts? Also add rotation to planets. But honestly I would rate this game 10 stars if I could!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Don't know what the hype is all about
by Tfaurie on 2017/08/09 11:26
This is a 99cents game at most, to sum it up quickly, you put and engine and a fuel tank and you're good to go. The selection and building process can be very confusing and irritating because it's impossible to select the specific piece of the rocket you want to move. Really wish I could get my money back on this one.
Please read
by The ISS Man on 2017/08/06 15:22
Could you please add dwarf planets and more moons. When building a rocket, could you please add more parts to add a customizable aspect to the game. When launching a rocket the different parts tend to "fray" while flying. I'm currently building the ISS and it has over 30 docks and counting. When I build it the game makes it possible to dock satellites at an angle, over time this makes the space station become curved and wobbly. Could you please make the docks more stiff and add a button that says,"Straighten all dock." When I was trying to land on Smalley's Comet, it said I had an encounter when I really didn't. I think this is a great game. You don't find many game on the AppStore with this capability. I hope you will read these request and take them into your considerations. Thank you.
Won't change view
by Kbeal207 on 2017/05/21 16:45
It won't let me turn my view to horizontal
Fantastic
by Love the NFL, hate the DirecTV on 2017/05/14 04:41
Satisfying science simulation
Awesome........ but improvements
by the comet catcher on 2017/05/13 19:54
Love it but it needs some improvements 1 other stars ,planets, and moons .2 new plasma engines , plasma containers, and plasma collector 3 new comets 4 fix a bug that makes comets shake to death
Needs update
by Rorro4ev3r on 2017/04/26 19:47
The game is AWSOME!!! But needs an update. Would you consider adding a heat shield and atmosphere heating to the game? I would REALLY appreciate it! Once again... GOOD GAME -Me
Enjoyable but boring after a wile
by Winstondgarrett on 2017/04/06 17:28
HOW DARE YOU NOT INCLUDE PLUTO AS A PLANET
Very fun
by A future pilot on 2017/04/01 14:45
I like this game because of its insane physics engine. I highly recommend this game for people searching for a realistic, fun mobile game. Real rocket science is adopted into the game making it a challenge. Highly recommend the tutorials, for they are very helpful.
Good but
by Not my nick hhfbgyfggghhh on 2017/03/27 01:20
This is so fun but it needs a re-entry effect it also need people and a smluto(pluto) Keep up the good work.😄
Great game but needs...
by Lol:)MAGIC on 2017/02/25 19:06
This game needs more rocket customizations to make it better for space travel. There is a new solar system that we found called Trappist-1 it would be amazing if you guys could put that in the game. P.S. thanks for reading
Incredible!!!!
by Jimmyshome310 on 2017/02/07 22:38
This game is amazing. My son loves space. He begged me to get him the game, and I'm glad I did. He plays it all day and he loves to come sit on my lap we build rockets together. We've not had many successes😅 but it's the time that I get to spend with him that matters, if you are reading this please buy this game, I promise you, you won't regret it
Great game
by Fat man633390 on 2017/01/31 21:28
It's a fun enjoyable game. It is almost like 2D kerbal space program. Only reason I give it four stars is the rocket parts are just too cartoony for my liking.
I just love it
by Pended a on 2017/01/01 17:48
Masonj
Worth it
by Pd123asd on 2016/12/28 14:40
This game is definitely worth your money and time. Highly recommend.
AMAZING
by Trainz are cool! on 2016/12/18 03:51
I LOVE this game! This game shows the best physics I've ever seen on a rocket game! I think next the developers should make a simple boats game to create ships and submarines and it would be a good addition to the three games.
This is such an amazing game...
by =ForrestFire= on 2016/12/05 00:17
I love all of it. Only wish the items menu was a little easier to use, and the wheel mechanics are a bit off, but besides that it's completely accurate on how much effort it takes to get something to work.
Sooooooo good
by Jon Kessler on 2016/11/30 20:59
This I one of the best games for mobile I have ever played. Unlike most mobile rocket games it dose not try to go 3D, wich is a good thing. There is a game called kerble space program for computers that I have not played, but I did look at some videos of people playing it. And it is cinda like this game in 3D. Love the challenges in the game as much as the sandbox and to give you an idea of the Humor in this game this is what the first page of the manual in my words: congratulations on looking at this thing most people just skip it. Amazing game and tons of humor if you look closely!
I love it!
by Lukephant on 2016/11/07 23:24
I watched a YouTuber play this game and I always wanted to play kerbal space program so when I saw that this game was for mobile I immediately bought it. It's a lot like kerbal space program and I'm glad it's for mobile. It is a very fun game and it may not be worth the money too some people but I think it's still very fun!
Great game!
by robert-e on 2016/09/16 06:28
This game is a blast! Spent plenty of hours messing around with it. Could use more parts and and an update that allows for more than two pieces to be connected to each other.
Needs something...
by Gamebuilder on 2016/08/12 12:22
I think you should add fairings to the game like those fairings in ksp
Yes!..Space Station creation
by Weehoo on 2016/06/25 05:44
This game needs warheads and random UFO encounters 🤓.
Awesome
by Dnidxbfs on 2016/06/04 15:00
This game is awesome and great if you obsess over it in the first 72 hours of owning it, but then it gets a but boring and sometimes the long space travel takes forever, especially when you are try to match orbit with a planet but still get the game
Great, but crashes
by HellomynameisBoba on 2016/05/27 17:05
I love this game so much and think it might be the best game on the App Store but recently it has been crashing on my iPad mini after I play for approx. 6 minutes. Devs, if you are reading this, please fix the crashing so I can continue to enjoy this wonderful game you have created. If it wasn't for the crashing, I would give this game 5 stars. Thank you for your time.
Doesn't rotate.
by Kolkjhujm on 2016/05/27 00:01
No fun to use phone app on tablet. Even if it doesn't take up the whole screen it should at least rotate.
This game is so much fun!!!
by Chadspace999 on 2016/05/26 00:55
This game is so much fun because you can build rockets engineer rockets design rockets and go into other planets! You can also download mods from Reddit or enjoy exploring planets and much more more planets are available from Reddit mod shop!! I recommend this science rocket game for everyone who love space and science and like to learn more about space flight!!
5stars
by Suckadickscribblenauts on 2016/05/25 20:29
Very fun game the only thing I hate is the connection I think we should be able to connect to 2 points not just 1 other than that 5 stars
YES, but no, at the same time.
by CoverFireSix on 2016/05/23 13:11
I like the whole game in general, as it is very well built, but it doesn't have enough parts. I would like some more parts. Maybe include the ones from the PC version as well?
Love it
by ryry51 on 2016/05/20 06:46
Great game. Very fun and educational. Just needs iCloud support
Consider
by -t-r-e-v-o-r- on 2016/05/09 13:41
Hey, I am a huge fan of both simple planes and simple rockets, but my favorite game of yours is kernel space program!! You should seriously consider releasing KSP for iPhone 6/6s (because they as of right now have better processing power). I don't know the possibilities of this, but if you price it at around $7 I bet you would make tones off it!
PERFECT GAME
by Pink Sheep #19372937283728 on 2016/05/08 15:42
Thank you, thank you for the amazing game... I have been looking for a mobile KSP ever since I got it. PERFECT game.
PLEASE READ!! Sweet! But...
by Mr. Rocket exploder on 2016/04/14 19:13
Ok so 1. This gamer is awesome! 2. The fact that if you want to make a rocket to go to like smaturn, you have to make a HUGE rocket... And you cant connect more than once to everythnig. :/ but when you want the make something detach it make be touching something else so please make a thing were you can choose to attach it or not. Ps. Did i say this game is awesome?
LOVE IT
by Mastership84 on 2016/04/07 02:54
I absolutely love this game, I play it every day. My only request is that you add a command pod in the items list so you can send more than one satellite, lander or rover on one ship. Also flags so I can make a landing and return mission
Where's smuto?
by Person1213 on 2016/04/07 01:07
why isn't Pluto on here?? I wanted to go to Pluto even though they claim it's not a planet anymore you should still have it in your game! Now my dreams have been ruined once again by communist pigs!!
Really fun! But it could use...
by Kawaii person on 2016/04/01 22:30
I only recently started using this game, but so far, it's great! I already got a probe on the moon (smoon in game) and have satellites orbiting Earth and Mars. But my only problem is the lack of more complex peaces to attach to your ship (for example, I would like it if they added satellite dishes, smaller parts of already existing objects, and grappling hooks just to name a few.). Otherwise, I think the game is great!
Great
by RileySW on 2016/04/01 02:46
Great!!!
Boss
by Cj110000 on 2016/03/24 22:57
Awesome
3D it needs this feature
by Halosupporteranddefender on 2016/03/21 15:15
It would be awesome if you guys made it 3D
Ok
by Jamestireler on 2016/03/17 04:00
This is an ok game, but more of a time waster. The reason I say this is because it's easy to go in a straight line, but without help saying boost here, how long, and at what direction, its difficulty to do much else sky rockets (no pun intended). Otherwise great game in design, look, and mechanics
Awesome!
by ChaseRU2 on 2016/03/16 21:45
So addicting! As you learn the physics and builds, it gets even more fun. Challenging, educational, fun. Worth it!
SO COOL
by It is cool and awsome on 2016/03/16 16:37
A very realistic game and it's very very fun.
Needs Controls Like PC
by Hospital bug, please fix. on 2016/03/13 04:17
I love this game to death. But I have one problem with it on mobile. On the computer, even when you lock the gimbal, you can still use RCS. This needs to be added into the mobile version as well. Otherwise, great game and hours upon hours of fun.
Just........WOW!
by Hrndiso I on 2015/10/30 03:53
I like rocket games but hate how simple it they can be. This is the perfect game for the adult engineer. Build a cool multi stage rocket and fly? Can you get much better then that!?! The replay value is endless. I've been making all kinds of cool stuff you can even pretend that you are going thru a roll program. Oh man....it's like they made this game just for me! After I clean the front of my pants I'm going to try the plane game that they have, I already downloaded it but I'm holding off as long as I can because I'm just so into this rocket game right now. To the developers of this game: Games like these should be a staple in the industry, that is; games where a grown up can play with Legos. What I mean is Legos that are a little more advanced. I'm bet your guys could make a sick drag racing game with all the crazy motor mods....with details down to vacuum differences when changing valve angle! Keep up the great work. This game riggidy rules! Miggidy mawfu(k€rs!
Meh
by MAN IN THE M00N on 2015/07/13 02:11
The orbital mechanics are quite fun to mess around with and the spacecraft designs are pretty cool, but one thing I really don't like is how you can't stack certain parts on top of others. For example if you wanted to do an Apollo style mission, you really can't make it realistic because you can't stack a docking port for some reason so you have to put in on the side which makes it look kinda dumb. Also something that irks me (even though you can't change it) is the 2-D world and how planet rotation is not taken into account because it is a top-view of the S(m)olar System. It also makes it so you have to cram stuff onto your main craft. You should make it able to have in-line docking ports and plugs as well as being able to put stuff on the outside of the RCS thrusters and solar panels (like struts so it kinda looks like a fairing.) Also some kind of fairing system would be nice to add some type of atmospheric stability and maybe some fins as well so you don't have to use RCS in atmo. I think these should be easy to implement since you can stack other parts in-line and I would really think they would improve the game. I hope you read this because it would really make this game if these were to be added. Other than the suggestions it is a great game and has the potential to be the Kerbal Space Program IOS equivalent.
Please read
by The ISS Man on 2017/08/06 15:22
Could you please add dwarf planets and more moons. When building a rocket, could you please add more parts to add a customizable aspect to the game. When launching a rocket the different parts tend to "fray" while flying. I'm currently building the ISS and it has over 30 docks and counting. When I build it the game makes it possible to dock satellites at an angle, over time this makes the space station become curved and wobbly. Could you please make the docks more stiff and add a button that says,"Straighten all dock." When I was trying to land on Smalley's Comet, it said I had an encounter when I really didn't. I think this is a great game. You don't find many game on the AppStore with this capability. I hope you will read these request and take them into your considerations. Thank you.
Please read, good info for potential buyer
by VaderInvader03 on 2017/09/18 12:21
It is the best game I ever played. It takes a while before you get everything but then it is awesome. I rank it up there with or past Minecraft and Clash of Clans (for me that means a lot) the thing is though it is relatively simple I do not recommend it for young children. They will not get it, give up and never look at it again. Also it sometimes crashes, which is really annoying because whatever ship you were on disappears. But it does save the design of whichever ship you last launched. Please fix the crashing but other than that it is awesome.
Sooooooo good
by Jon Kessler on 2016/11/30 20:59
This I one of the best games for mobile I have ever played. Unlike most mobile rocket games it dose not try to go 3D, wich is a good thing. There is a game called kerble space program for computers that I have not played, but I did look at some videos of people playing it. And it is cinda like this game in 3D. Love the challenges in the game as much as the sandbox and to give you an idea of the Humor in this game this is what the first page of the manual in my words: congratulations on looking at this thing most people just skip it. Amazing game and tons of humor if you look closely!
AMAZING GAME, Could use more
by Potato Fridge on 2016/02/07 22:18
I absolutely love this game super simplified version of Ksp another great game simplified onto mobile, completed all mission been to all planets (not smaleys comet, Yet!) but been running out of things to do 3 Satellite, 4 "rovers" games fun but lost its spark add some more parts and mix up the gameplay a little, always looking forward to new updates and new parts sattelite was one of my favorites but could really use some more parts or many anouther planet or dwarf planet (hint hint "Pluto") Overall great game looking forward to more
Love the game, one problem
by Dnhduddvvvdhd on 2018/03/16 22:04
I absolutely love the game. There is only one aspect of the game which I can not accomplish. It is the rendezvous with satellites I’ll either be too high or too low. With the launch of SimpleRockets2 I ask you to please incorporate a navigation system to smoothly guide your rocket to the target so long that the so called target also has a navigation system on board and is in the same planets gravitational pull. Thank you for reading and I hope to see this In SimpleRockets2.
So, fun
by Fun cool guy😎 on 2016/01/23 05:51
This is really fun, but it need a few more things, #1 - A Claw Grabber, so u can pick things up, different sizes and specialties, like small, big, and large, and grapple claw (small), moveable armlike claw (big) and stationary claw (large), #2 it needs a way to dig like a drill, or a jackhammer thing, and #3 it needs randomly generated space stations and outposts at each planet (on a different mode, not on sandbox), other than that it's an awsome game and I would definitely recommend that if ur looking at this and don't know if u should get it, ITS "OUT OF THIS WORLD" lol. srry, like puns
Wow.
by Tbob424 on 2015/07/05 23:40
First off I want to say this is a brilliant game based off of Kerbel Space Program. (Both are amazing) The only problem is that there is no objective after the missions like for example: I get something to orbit the Smoon right? Well there are no scientific equipment you can add so there's nothing you can really do. If they added let's say... Idk a barometer? Thermometer? Maybe some camera type thing with communication antennas so you could transfer data. But other than that this game is amazing!
Awesome game!
by ReactiveAlkali on 2015/07/09 09:09
This is one of the best simulation games I've ever played and I have some ideas that might make it better. Maybe you could add reentry effects, it doesn't have to be fancy just to make it look cool. Also, maybe you could add fairings so the rocket doesn't break as much. One last thing you could add is a career mode. These are just suggestions that I wanted you guys to see. Keep up the fantastic work.
Really fun! But it could use...

by This is really cool! on 2017/09/05 01:59
First off, this game is worth every cent I put into it. Second, please fix struts. If I want to attach multiple struts to each other, the only will attach to one, and the whole thing will go haywire. Third, while mod support is great, it could be better. Just look at your other game, Simpleplanes. That has amazing mod support. If you could implement that into this, then that would be amazing.
Great game!!
by Rab921 on 2015/09/21 03:48
This game is really a great game, my favorite app actually. Based on real life physics, the game really did a good job capturing all the features of space navigation reality. It strongly resembles a similar game on steam "Kerbal Space Program" Simple rockets have most of the features and all the physics but costs $40 less. There is only 1 feature that ticks me off, and that's the warp restrictions. It takes forever to orbit and escape with the warp restrictions. Also note to the creators/developers, I've been waiting for an update for awhile. Some new parts and scenarios would be nice. All in all the game is fantastic it has a perfect physic design and creatively put together to resemble our solar system. Love the game, absolutely fantastic. A++
Awesome!!!
by Kshogun on 2017/09/30 04:08
This game is amazing, and it has an unbeatable price!!! It taught me a lot of basic rocket science while having fun. The 2 things I would add though would be multiple attachment points, for stability, and the ability to create and unlock locations, like simple planes. Other than that, this is one of the best space games and mobile games I've seen!

Great, but crashes
by HellomynameisBoba on 2016/05/27 17:05
I love this game so much and think it might be the best game on the App Store but recently it has been crashing on my iPad mini after I play for approx. 6 minutes. Devs, if you are reading this, please fix the crashing so I can continue to enjoy this wonderful game you have created. If it wasn't for the crashing, I would give this game 5 stars. Thank you for your time.

Great game but could have improvements
by Space killer of death on 2015/12/06 02:10
I REALLY like this game. But one thing that really sticks out is smalleys commet. When you look at it, it's just shaking to death. It would also be good if you could make a way to launch from the new moons and comets. I have 0 idea what they look like. I also thing something like fairing of re-entry effect would be nice.

by Epik virus 849361$,$: on 2015/06/22 18:34
This is a very good game with a ton of things to do. There is nothing to say bad about this game other than the satellites are very hard to combine/dock. In my opinion the price is great for a game like this. Simple, yet complex. Even after I have beaten every mission, I still mess around with the sandbox for hours. I could not ask for a simpler, better game.
I love it!
by Lukephant on 2016/11/07 23:24
I watched a YouTuber play this game and I always wanted to play kerbal space program so when I saw that this game was for mobile I immediately bought it. It's a lot like kerbal space program and I'm glad it's for mobile. It is a very fun game and it may not be worth the money too some people but I think it's still very fun!
Incredible!!!!
by Jimmyshome310 on 2017/02/07 22:38
This game is amazing. My son loves space. He begged me to get him the game, and I'm glad I did. He plays it all day and he loves to come sit on my lap we build rockets together. We've not had many successes😅 but it's the time that I get to spend with him that matters, if you are reading this please buy this game, I promise you, you won't regret it
Fun, Easy, and Informative
by warmphase on 2015/10/09 03:10
The challenges build up simply, making it very playable. Build and fly simple rockets to achieve goals. Then build on your knowledge slowly with discoveries you make on each successful mission. I've also really enjoyed learning a little bit about orbital mechanics as I send these rockets up.
🚀Amazing🚀
by C sthehdthrhxgjr on 2015/06/28 15:33
🚀This game is something that you can spend hours on. let's go to the moon. First try doesn't work let me try again and again and again then before you know it you have been playing for hours. This game is a great game to play anywhere at anytime.🚀
Bad bug
by 56wrty329 on 2019/02/15 14:27
You can't do this and have all parts attach ============ I. I. I. I. I ============ Those parts on the top and bottom are the struts, and those parts in the middle are the detacher's. Here's the problem, only one of them can attach on both ends for some weird reason I think it's the way the game handles multiple piece segments. (B.t.w I found that the first piece that you place is going to be the dominant one in is going to be the one that will attach) Anyway this can lead to some pretty flimsy rockets if they're too big, please fix this!!! (even know you're probably going to have to entirely reprogram the way the game handles parts connecting)
AWESOME GAME!
by Happy Jc's butt on 2018/12/01 22:15
Most realistic rocket simulating game I have ever played! It is so fun trying to build a better rocket to get to different places and learn from that attempt and build your rocket better and hopefully make it. Some things that I would like to be added is a rotating item and customizable fuel blocks. Thanks,
Really fun but has bugs that haven’t been fixed
by Chris Norling on 2018/10/26 15:24
RCS thrusters are really broken (iPhone 7) and it’s like I have to use a force touch to maneuver my sat. Makes the task extremely difficult. I’m sure the dev is busy working on SR2 but it would be awesome if this could be fixed. I’m not sure if it’s worth it anymore since most of these reviews are years old but I would appreciate it.
Best Space Sim Ever
by SciFi-Gamer3546 on 2015/11/17 23:28
This is the best and most realistic space simulator I have ever played!!🚀🚀🚀🚀 it's fun and can be challenging which makes it even more.😊😊😊☺️ I also think it would be cool if Jundroo updated the game every time NASA came out with new inventions (like maybe a nuclear powered thruster if they ever invent one) 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
This is a great game!
by Seamisian on 2018/08/22 03:07
This is a groundbreaking game that can potentially teach you about rocket science and lets you launch a vast fleet of spaceships to explore the solar system. The best part about it is that it takes up very little storage! I would definitely recommend this masterpiece.
Don't know what the hype is all about
by Tfaurie on 2017/08/09 11:26
This is a 99cents game at most, to sum it up quickly, you put and engine and a fuel tank and you're good to go. The selection and building process can be very confusing and irritating because it's impossible to select the specific piece of the rocket you want to move. Really wish I could get my money back on this one.
Awesome
by Dnidxbfs on 2016/06/04 15:00
This game is awesome and great if you obsess over it in the first 72 hours of owning it, but then it gets a but boring and sometimes the long space travel takes forever, especially when you are try to match orbit with a planet but still get the game
Bug with the heading buttons.
by Monster maker 2345: on 2019/04/14 02:42
During any docking missions the bottom heading buttons don’t work. The rotate left and right buttons along with the reverse buttons don’t work on iPhone 8 on the latest software. It’s really frustrating to not be able to use those buttons as the missions require it to complete. Otherwise it’s a super fun great game! Please fix!
Fun game but a HUGE flaw
by mcg1969 on 2019/03/16 02:34
There is a control thing where you can drag an arrow around a circle to point your ship in that direction but it is majorly flawed. The engines turn the ship in that direction but don’t stop pushing until it is already past he arrow. If you know anything about space, it’s going to take a long time to point the ship in the right direction. This destroys th whole game and plus that the manual arrows can’t be pressed so your screwed. Fix this problem please
Awesome Game! Just one suggestion.
by 123456789012A on 2015/12/17 02:43
This game is the most awesome space simulator I have played. The only thing I wish is in the game is the weight of all of the parts and the power of the thrusters were listed in the game. Even though this isn't in the game this is still a awesome game.
Needs Controls Like PC
by Hospital bug, please fix. on 2016/03/13 04:17
I love this game to death. But I have one problem with it on mobile. On the computer, even when you lock the gimbal, you can still use RCS. This needs to be added into the mobile version as well. Otherwise, great game and hours upon hours of fun.
I Love it
by Thunderhawk100 on 2015/08/28 04:38
It worth it all. It has great physics, graphics, and it runs smoothly. I just wish their were more solar systems and galaxy's because I finely made it outa the system to find their is nothing nothing and more... Yup nothing. And we want more parts mods and STUFF!!!!!
Good game, but needs more!
by Wesley McDonald on 2018/03/06 22:07
It’s fun and exiting! But needs more options and parts for editing and building your rocket. I doubt this plea will be heard but if it is that would be greatly appreciated. Also if you add more you could up the game price to $4.99
Very fun
by A future pilot on 2017/04/01 14:45
I like this game because of its insane physics engine. I highly recommend this game for people searching for a realistic, fun mobile game. Real rocket science is adopted into the game making it a challenge. Highly recommend the tutorials, for they are very helpful.
Fix screen ratio bug!!!
by jamespierce95 on 2018/06/02 02:15
EDIT: They fixed the issue! 5 stars all the way!! Absolutely love this game but now it’s unplayable because the screen ratio is all jacked up. Giving one star to hopefully draw attention to the issue.
Great Game thanks Jundroo!!!!!
by SimpleRockets21 on 2018/03/30 22:19
Thanks! I will be buying every SimpleRockets and I love this game! I love the mods option, rockets, realism, and I the fun! The only thing I would want in SimpleRockets 2, is for sure mods, but also maybe keyboard and mouse support? So it’s more like a Rocket ship control deck. Thanks again Jundroo!
Wow
by Aliens8 on 2015/12/04 04:08
Amazing but I have suggestions such as adding a campaign to follow and an out of solar system target, tau ceti e could be a target where you have to populate another planet and get to it with ion engines of a mission to explore the Oort cloud, if there is an Oort Cloud make it so u can refuel rcs over there. One word, solar sail!
Just purchased, can’t play!
by Zbomb33 on 2018/06/01 23:16
Wish I had read recent reviews, unplayable on my 7plus due to screen ratio bug. I will give more stars if I can ever play the game! Update: quick response from the developer, fixed a few days later. Having a ton of fun now!
Great game but needs...
by Lol:)MAGIC on 2017/02/25 19:06
This game needs more rocket customizations to make it better for space travel. There is a new solar system that we found called Trappist-1 it would be amazing if you guys could put that in the game. P.S. thanks for reading
This is such an amazing game...
by =ForrestFire= on 2016/12/05 00:17
I love all of it. Only wish the items menu was a little easier to use, and the wheel mechanics are a bit off, but besides that it's completely accurate on how much effort it takes to get something to work.
Great game!
by robert-e on 2016/09/16 06:28
This game is a blast! Spent plenty of hours messing around with it. Could use more parts and and an update that allows for more than two pieces to be connected to each other.
Resolution issues
by Harlow112 on 2018/06/01 20:56
So I’m on a iPhone 6 Plus and my screen doesn’t adapt to the right resolution, my throttle and the time warp are completely gone I’ve tried uninstalling it even soft resetting my phone Help
Best IOS game ever made!!!
by kandip on 2017/08/24 00:00
I love this game so much! I can't even explain how much I love this game! But could you add some more advanced technology to add on the space crafts? Also add rotation to planets. But honestly I would rate this game 10 stars if I could!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
LOVE IT
by Mastership84 on 2016/04/07 02:54
I absolutely love this game, I play it every day. My only request is that you add a command pod in the items list so you can send more than one satellite, lander or rover on one ship. Also flags so I can make a landing and return mission
5stars
by Suckadickscribblenauts on 2016/05/25 20:29
Very fun game the only thing I hate is the connection I think we should be able to connect to 2 points not just 1 other than that 5 stars
