Slitherine has launched another simulation game for the iPad. Instead of its typical war title the video game publisher has released Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager. The game allows players to take on the role of Director for either NASA or the Soviet Space Agency in the 1960s.
In the campaign mode players can choose to recreate the famous "space race" between the Cold War rivals, or play as the fictional Global Space Agency (GSA). The NASA vs.USSR campaign allows players to build their own space agency from the ground up by assembling a team of Scientists, Engineers, Technicians (SET), Flight Controllers and Flight Crews. Players can also recreate famous space programs and launch missions such as the Sputnik satellite, and manage other aspects of their space agency while dealing with political pressure to beat their rival to the Moon.
