Codex Gamicus

Moon Patrol is an arcade game released in 1982. It has been ported to the Atari 2600, the Atari 5200, and home computers.


You control a moon buggy that's armed with forward and upward lasers. You must safely guide the buggy to certain checkpoints in the course while shooting rocks in your path and jumping over craters. Meanwhile, you must watch out for alien ships that will drop bombs on you, some of which will create new craters. Make it the checkpoint within a certain time limit and you'll gain bonus points.
