As is typical in Ketchapp games, for each successful launch, you'll get an amount of coins proportional to how well you did. These coins can be invested in improvements for your rocket, to which you can add more parts all the time. The more parts you have, the farther you can go. And yes, the farther you go, the more coins you'll get from your next launch. You can also unlock different tops for your rocket.
Space Frontier is another superb game from Ketchapp that combines a simple but incredibly addictive gameplay with charming graphics. It's the perfect game for short rounds ... although you'll probably end up playing a bunch in a row.
Requires Android 4.3 or higher
