An innovative side-scroller, Moon Patrol puts players behind the wheel of a six-wheeled moon buggy along a lunar surface, firing a forward short-range cannon and an upward anti-aircraft gun at a variety of enemies and obstacles, including rocks, armored tanks and alien aircraft. The aliens drop bombs, some of which dig craters that must be jumped over. Other obstacles, such as mines, should be jumped over as well. One of the first videogames to allow continuation by inserting more money, Moon Patrol is a classic for many reasons, including buggy maneuverability, oddly compelling backgrounds, the challenge of timing jumps and shots, and a repetitive, yet catchy musical score. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
