Shuttle is a one player game available as a freeware game. The game involves the player navigating a spaceship shuttle through various gaps in space barriers. The shuttle has a destination and during its journey, it has to cross these hurdles and lastly park the spaceship on a predesignated spots. The game has 8 levels and as the player goes through each level the spaceship starts to go faster and faster, making the game more and more difficult. The number of barriers also increase and the time limits decrease. This makes the game become exponentially more difficult.
Shuttle is a simple single directional space based game that is an excellent choice for beginners. At the start of the game, the player has to click on the shuttle to make it move forward. The player can move up in two directions, 'right' and 'left'. When the shuttle reaches its destination the direction of view shifts and now the player has to land the shuttle at its destination using the up and down arrows that will be displayed instead of the left and right buttons. The game has to be played continuously from one level to the next. A new game can be selected when the player crosses the level or fails at it. To load a new game the player has to go to the file menu and select New.
