Ever wanted to build your very own home-made rocket, and fly it to the moon!? If so, then this is definitely the game for you! It’s time to realize your ambition, and follow in the footsteps of the great space travel pioneers. I Am Flying To The Moon is a fun and challenging online rocket maker game for kids where you have to repeatedly launch a rocket into the air, flying as high as you can each time. Your ultimate target is to fly high enough and beyond the atmosphere to land on the moon!
During each flight, you have to earn virtual income to improve your rocket from a simple wooden craft, into a jet-fueled super spacecraft! Collect Gold Coins as you go along to purchase things like extra-powered wings, boosters, engines and more. As you add these to your rocket, each flight brings you closer to your ultimate goal – flying into space and landing your rocket on the moon! While you navigate around to collect floating Power-up (Fuel Cans) and Coins, be sure to avoid other flying obstacles such as balloons, helicopters and UFOs. Impact off any one of them, and your rocket-launching adventure comes crashing back down to earth!
Your strategic decision making will come into play, as you have to carefully choose which upgrades to purchase to improve your chances of blasting higher and higher. If you’ve got quick reactions and nifty fingers, you won’t need NASA this time round – you can reach the moon all by yourself! Ready for blast off, Master Rocket Maker? 3, 2, 1 Lift-Off.
How to Play: While your ultimate goal is to get to the moon, your rocket needs a lot of improvements before you can think about that! You start off with a modest little wooden rocket. After it launches, fly as high as you can for as long as you can before your rocket fuel runs out (you can see how much fuel is remaining in the bottom left corner of the game screen). Control the rocket using the Arrow Keys, or the WASD keys on your computer keyboard. Your rocket automatically flies up, so use Left and Right / A and D to steer it. Use the Up Arrow to activate your Boosters once you have purchased them.
Avoid obstacles in the air such as helicopters, balloons, zeppelins and UFOs (which end your flight), and collect as many Gold Coins and Fuel Cans as you can along the way. At the end of each flight, you are shown how much virtual income you have earned. Use this to purchase upgrades in the store (shop) between flights. Each time you add an upgrade to the rocket, it flies higher next time round – adding to the amount of virtual income you can earn.
