A new version of the excellent shareware title Moon Lander was released recently, bringing the game to version 1.1 and making a number of changes. This surprise hit from the German-based OnlyMac Software is garnering great reviews so far and a good number of downloads on

Moon Lander is a 3D adaptation of the arcade classic Lunar Lander and maintains the original's easy-to-pick-up gameplay while adding impressive 3D graphics and even a story line. Version 1.1 makes some minor improvements to the original. Here is a full list of the changes:

  • Easy modus is easier now
  • Engine performance improved (5% faster)
  • Bug in unregistered version fixed
  • Itīs no longer possible to land below a base
  • Few minor bugs fixed
  • Better English translation
