Humanity yearns for the stars and the race to explore is in full swing! Hire the best specialists and upgrade your rockets to tackle ambitious missions and win the race the stars.
Race to the Stars
The unexplored cosmos awaits you in Lift Off. Build your space agency and compete to claim the most glorious milestones of space travel. New research has refined techniques to send astronauts into space. Compete against other agencies to hire the best specialists in the field. With the skills and technology to reach space finally in humanity’s grasp, there are many different possibilities to explore. Send up the first satellites, mine for asteroids, build a trading post, or land on a new planet. Select your missions carefully! A more complex mission will have a bigger payoff for your agency but will require more work.
To prepare for your missions you’ll need to gather technology: life support, oxygen, energy, and fuel. You’ll also need to carefully manage your agency’s funds to upgrade your rocket to carry larger loads and fly further with rocket boosters. An upgraded rocket will be better suited to tackle the more ambitious missions. With careful planning and resource management, your agency can win the race to the stars.
