[bvgmsfyd] How high

Make the "tyranny of the rocket equation" (Tsiolkovsky), i.e., the requirement of exponential amounts of fuel, into the basis of a (very frustrating) game.  Probably discretize the differential equation.

Maybe a platformer: many jumps carrying containers of fuel to floating platforms, with each jump also consuming fuel.  Gravity gets weaker as you go higher.
