A Python Lunar Landing game using the turtle module #Python @s_gruppetta_ct
How difficult can it be to land on the moon? No idea? All I know is that it’s not that easy landing the lunar module in this Python turtle game.
The lunar module starts in a spot in the top-left corner of the game screen. It is also spinning with a random angular velocity at the beginning of the game.
The aim of the game is to land the lunar module safely on the landing pad by controlling its descent.
You can turn on either of the two thrusters or both at once. If only one thruster is turned on, the module’s rotational velocity increases. This affects how fast the lunar module is spinning and in which direction. The longer the thruster is on, the faster it will spin.
