Moonlanding program for the HP-15C

Description

This program simulates landing a rocket on the moon.

You Press the A function key to start the game then wait for the countdown to reach zero (0) then press the R/S key to interrupt the automatic decent and enter a new Fuel-Burn number.

A Fuel-Burn number of 3 will maintain your decent rate. Burnig more than 3 units of fuel will decrease your decent rate while buring less than 3 units will increase your decent rate. The objective is to have a velocity of zero when your altitude reaches zero feet.

The First number that flashes in the display shows a number in the form -DD.AAAA format where DD is the decent rate (negative means falling) and AAAA is your altitude. The second number that flashes is your remaining fuel.

Press the R/S key when the countdown reaches zero (0) or do nothing to allow the rocket to accelerate without a burn.

The display blinks when the game is over. The blinking value shows your decent rate at the time of impact. If your impact velocity is less than 2 feet per second you probably survived!
