What is it about?

SimpleRockets has you channel your inner rocket scientist and build a custom rocket ship, and even rovers, to explore space and planets. Based on Kepler's equations you experience a very realistic orbital experience as you explore the planets, moons and the sun. You will learn about rocket science and Astrodynamics while having fun playing challenging games making this a great app for the classroom as well.


For those who...

  • It’s ideal for those who enjoy playing with physics like in SimplePhysics. It’s also great for classroom settings.

Not for those who...

  • It’s part game, part science experiment. If you’re looking for something you can simply jump right into, this isn’t it.

Why we love it

The realism of this app sets it apart. SimpleRockets is not only fun is a real learning experience. Who doesn't want see what it's like orbit Mars?

App Store 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
