Destination: Earth

Destination: EarthAnother game for the classics lover in you. Destination: Earth is actually a Flash recreation of a bootleg clone of the old Taito classic arcade game, Lunar Rescue, released in 1979.

The game is a mix between Lunar Lander and Space Invaders. The player first navigates the lunar lander module down through an asteroid field to land safely on a landing platform, which then rescues a stranded passenger. The player then pilots the craft back up to the mother ship through alien five-o'clock traffic, shooting any space craft that gets in the way. The goal is to rescue as many stranded passengers as you can.

This Flash version is quite good and captures the essence of the old-school arcade video game by sampling all the original sounds. A very nice conversion job by the folks at SyndicatesDomain. Click.

Thanks for the note. Link is fixed. The game will pop-up in a new browser window with all their ads in view. Sorry for that.

The link is not working, results in 404.

The website is down for updates. Hopefully the game will be back when the website comes back online. Otherwise, I'll remove the game from the recommended section.

Cheers, Dave. I've updated the links accordingly. =)

I can't believe how much I loved that game before they "updated" it, or how much I hate it now that it's changed. Anybody know where another more original version might be hiding?

The links now lead to a site composed entirely of ads. It looks like it's gone, at least from that location.
