LUNAR runs the game.

You are trying to land a space craft on the moon and must judge how to fire your braking rockets. You specify how fast they are to burn by pressing one of the digit keys 0 to 9.

The dashboard tells you
1. The jet, i.e. which of the digit keys you pressed last
2. The velocity, how fast you are falling (should be zero or one when you land)
3. The height, how far you have yet to go (you have landed when this reaches 0)
4. Fuel, how much fuel you have left.
