Description of Apollo 18: Mission to the Moon

Apollo 18 is an early space mission simulation by Artech, converted from the C64 to the IBM-PC by Ted Gruber Software. Problems might occur on fast computers. Try a slow-down util. Also don't forget to download the manual, you won't get far without it. Included in the archive is also the hi-res version. From Diana Gruber's home page (Ted Gruber Software): "The shipped version ran at a 320x200 resolution, but for a few dollars more, you could mail in a postcard and get a high-resolution (640x350, 16 colors) EGA resolution, considered revolutionary at the time. It was written in Fortran and assembler. Can you imagine that?"

Overall, a nice space simulation that focuses more on playability than on accuracy or realism. Fun for a while, but die-hard fans of the subject should check out Microsoft Space Simulator or Orbiter instead.

I have no idea how to play this. Something keeps beeping even though I follow everything in the instructions.

The review from REYCE, RICE - whatever - misses the point of playing the game, it's place in retro gaming, etc.
Don't take his word.

As is, I can’t see you playing this game for more than 15 minutes. If you’re good at it go learn martial arts where your skills would be better suited. If you are bad at it. Try it a handful of times and then fuck in the cold dark sea. If you take all of the above and tie into my opening statements, Apollo 18 Mission To The Moon is an absolute travesty of anything space related. I would suggest sending it to space but I assume there’s enough astronaut shit floating around without adding this to the flotilla.

You have to throttle the game way down to play, it is much to fast on modern computers. Moslo used to work, but DosBox has it's own throttle: CTRL-F11 will slow the game down to a playable speed. Use CTRL-F12 to speed it up if you go too far.
