The moon is under attack from a horde of aliens, and you must stop them in your armed buggy. Drive along the surface shooting the aliens and avoiding their bullets. The surface is not flat, there are craters and rocks to avoid contact with, and landmines on the surface. Flying saucers create new craters when they crash. The 25 restart points are letter-coded.
Moon Patrol is a great PC port of Atari's classic coin-op and Atari console game. In one of the earliest 2D platformers, your goal is to blast aliens flying overhead while jumping over rocks and chasms, all in the heroic act of defending the Moon from alien invasion. The game has excellent controls (especially when played with a joystick), very detailed graphics (by 1983 standards of course), and even memorable music. Fast, furious, and fun - the way games are meant to be. Another testament to Atari's undisputed knack for making addictive arcade games, Moon Patrol is a must-have.
