You’ve landed on the Lunar research station.
Too bad you *crash* landed.

There’s no need to install the game, just unZip the file and double-click the Crashed Lander icon. You should get good framerates with pretty much any dual-core machine or budget gaming system. If you’re on an older/slower machine, choose Fastest from the quality settings.
Download for Mac (105MB)
This version is here thanks to Unity’s cross-platform magic. I don’t have access to a Mac, so this version is not well tested. Previous versions have worked well on several models of Mac, so I expect this on will work for most people. Reports that it is working well on Macbook Air. Unity system requirements for Mac say: “Mac OS X 10.5 or later.”
Download for Linux – (102MB) untested
I can do the same magic trick with Linux, I think. This version is untested but should work on Ubuntu and some other builds. I’ve heard from one player who’s using Ubuntu 12.10 with nVidia GPU. Give it a try if you’re feeling adventurous.
An (old) intro to the Preview version.
new video in the works
Crashed Lander is a simple game inspired by classics like Space Taxi, Lunar Lander, and QWOP. Pilot your craft from pad to pad trying to beat your best time – then flirt with that fine line between speed and control.
La Mancha Ridge
If you’re brave enough to fly without the AutoPilot assist you’ll be flopping around like a drunken, low-gravity turtle. Get a feel for it and you’ll be zippin’ around shoutin “Do a Barrel Roll!”
You’ll see sites from the cutting edge of fractal mathematics – bizarre, organic shapes, arcane archaeological digs, and all manner of WTFderful alien vistas. Each level is a detailed hand-crafted landscape that encourages the player to explore - and goof around!
This is a one man project – powered by Don Whitaker and Unity 3D.
“A billion credits worth of this InstaWorld terraforming tech – and I‘m building a janky ship outa propane tanks and spare parts. I’d give my left lugnut for a simple SubEtha ThumbDrive.
At least there’s still air in this damned greenhouse. Crazy freakin plants and noodle-knows-what out there. What’d those terraforming nimrods expect to happen when they shifted evolution into fast forward?
Pfft…Whatever. I gotta get this thing in the air and land at all three of those pads. That should enable the MultiVerse ‘port station. Get to that, and I. am. Outa here.”
