Apollo 2 is the second part of the story- The journey home.

After repairing your ship during the events in Apollo 1, you leave the alien planet in a desparate attempt to make it home. You must avoid asteroids and defeat a defense sattelite protecting Earth from unknown vessels, before attempting to land on the Earth's surface on randomly generated terrain.

In the first level, try to make it to Earth whilst avoiding asteroids and making sure your Cockpit, Hull, Engine and Oxygen tanks aren't damaged! In the second level, you must find suitably flat terrain and attempt to land on it!

This game was made by 3 people in under 12 hours. All the coding and planning was done by Jay Fox, graphics by Katy Bisson and music and sound by Will Fox.

Controls: Use the arrow keys or WASD to move the ship, press SPACE to fire and R to repair broken modules.

Other stuff: The game's colours can be customized using the 1, 2 and 3 buttons for each sprite colour. F11 switches fullscreen, and F5 resets the game.
