I recently came across a space program simulator called the Kerbal Space Program Simulator. I’ve always been interested in the different sciences and astronomy all my life, so downloading and trying out the game was a no-brainer for me. Kerbal Space Program is described by the developers’ as a space program simulator.

As the player, you’ll be in control over the space program of a race of green human-like beings called the Kerbals. Set in Kerbin, a fictitious Earth-like planet on a solar system much like our own, your goal is to create a fully functional space mission, from start to finish. This means you’ll have at your disposal, a space center or space port, space crafts, including rockets and boosters, and many other auxiliary aspects and components necessary to carry out a space mission. Space missions range from the very simple, such building a spacecraft and achieving orbit, to the very complex, such as interplanetary exploration and building of space bases.

As I played the game, I realized that it requires quite a steep learning curve, since there are many technical aspects that must be considered, especially when creating the more complex space missions. However, for those who are really interested in astronomy and space flight, Kerbal Space Program is a game that will provide hours and hours of endless fun.

Pros

  • A unique space program simulator game
  • Very complex game aspects mean an almost endless range of space flight scenarios

Cons

  • Many of the game’s physics are not realistic

I have the love for engineering as well as aircraft, science , and space. This game bring it all to life and creates a very fun game to learn and to test your ability to make and fly your own space craft. First, try to think of your mission in order to create an aircraft to suit your needs, then begin building your aircraft to your specifications. What's great about this game it that it allows you to fully customize your aircraft with it's very wide varieties of customization parts and allows you to put it anywhere your want to in your aircraft, which then allows you to test it all out to make minor or major adjustments. After building your aircraft, try to make it fly and navigate to your chosen destination or just explore the depths of space, try to test your efficiency to make the most of your limited fuel source.

The great thing about this game is that it does not have any real plot rather than go explore with different combinations of parts and explore space. The more you spend time in this game, the better you will be at playing it, just like a real engineer trial and error will cause you to learn and be better

Pros

  • Very immersive gameplay and simulation
  • Wide variety of parts to put on your space craft
  • allows you to explore it's huge map
  • very educational for future scientists and engineers

Cons

  • Camera views seems to flicker when in space
  • less amount of camera modes
