Lander vs Lunar Lander[edit]

the new Lander (by Psygnosis, 1999) addition made the whole article pop up under the "1999 computer and video games" catagory. perhaps to fix this an additional "Lander" redirect article should be made, as the 1999 game is called "Lander" not "Lunar Lander".

I have created a new page for Lander and slightly edited the text here. I don't know what I'm doing with the categorisations so I haven't edited those, but it may need removing from this page now. JammyB 19:06, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

now fixed categorisations and added Lander (video game) link to "see also" section of article. Roidroid (talk) 09:29, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Brouhaha, thanks for the GT40 infobox (and picture)! I still wish I had one of those (systems). By the way, if you've ever seen the VT-55-based simulation of that game (that ran on RSTS/E, RSX-11, and OS/8), I'm the one who wrote that. It started as BASIC-PLUS but I migrated it to PAL-11 and PAL-8 machine language for improved speed of execution. On RSTS/E, it was actually a multi-user Run-time system.

Game Boy Advance[edit]

Anyone know anything about the GBA version? I don't, but it's in the category and a quick search confirms its existence. --Mgreenbe 19:40, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Proposed split[edit]

A split has been proposed sind August 2006. Seems a good idea to me. Rl 09:14, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Against. The Atari game is clearly derived from the PDP-11 one (as indicated by the screenshots). And it looks like all the variants are at least somewhat related. For that reason and also simply because the subject matter is the same so any splitting would end up duplicating a bunch of description. Paul Koning 17:37, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
For. Unless you can find documentation that one came from the other, its pure speculation and WP:OR. --Marty Goldberg 06:11, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

LUNAR for CDC Cyber[edit]

There's also a Lunar Lander game for the CDC mainframes. It's roughly contemporary with the PDP-11 version, perhaps a bit older. It differs from the others discussed here because it shows a view from the cockpit -- out the window (you see sky or terrain) and at the instruments. This makes it substantially harder because you don't have the "big picture" view. Paul Koning 17:35, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
