Description

Send your chimps into space!

It's the 50s, the cold war is under way. Soviets and Americans are in a race to send the first ape into space. Choose a side, equip your rocket and send your ape as high as you can.

Every meter counts as you gain additional funds to build a better rocket the next time. Your goal is the open space but there are many obstacles on the way that your rocket should evade.
