Critic Reviews for Lunar Lander Beyond

Lunar Lander Beyond updates the 1979 classic with success, introducing more ships, abilities, objectives, and situations, as well as a backstory and neat animation sequences. It has aspects that I have loved, such as stress, although others can be desperate, such as difficulty spikes. 45 years later, it's still something different.

Lunar Lander: Beyond is a loving reimagining of the Atari classic, with some seriously cool mechanics and a whole lot of variety.

Let's be frank: an evolution of Lunar Lander must do Lunar Lander's job, and Lunar Lander Beyond fulfills its task. Do you find the gameplay too simple and repetitive? This is a 1979 game repurposed in a deliberately faithful manner, for better or worse, adding some features typical of modern productions but aiming above all to preserve the spirit of the original. Nothing to object to in this respect then, but more effort could have been made in terms of aesthetics, with some elements looking too amateurish that almost makes you regret the vector graphics of the old arcade.

Lunar Lander Beyond is a solid recommendation for fans of the lander sim genre. It performs well on the Switch with no discernible frame rate issues and looks great. But as it stands, its missions too often feel abbreviated at around three to six minutes and too tightly sandwiched between narrative. The issue is not its gameplay mechanics, but the strictures of its campaign structure. It's a problem the developers could solve by staying the course and creating a mode focused squarely on what made the original compelling: flying, landing, and scoring better than everyone else.

Lunar Lander Beyond is an extremely difficult arcade action game aimed squarely at those who prefer a steep (and I would argue unfair) challenge. OK. The problem is that, aside from some great design work, that challenge is pretty much all it offers.

Lunar Lander Beyond shows that you can take the simplex gameplay of the '70s, give it a modern look, mechanics and story, and the result is an addictive game that will keep you entertained for those few hours.

Lunar Lander Beyond is a great example of how to modernize a classic game from the early days of video games without, however, detracting from its essence. With great controls, an art style full of identity and originality of purpose, the game surprises, entertains and addicts... Very much.

While Lunar Lander Beyond requires a delicate touch, the feeling that comes from mastering a perfect run and ship-shape crew cannot be beat. For the management fiends and skill-driven fans among us, get ready to kick the tires and light the fires during this Cosmic Event.
