Please see this thread for more game information: 

 

I never experienced this game growing up.  It sounds like it was very popular for the ZX Spectrum and released by the company that later became Rare.   I'm looking forward to trying it out this month.

It's actually not a very difficult game to complete. I have even completed it myself.

 

Please use the cartridge version, because the disk version is only a beta.

I don't think this one has been a part of this challenge, although I did find another thread for a "man-enough" competition in 2014:

 

 

Interesting history here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_Patrol

 

ROM files are here: (unexpanded system)

 

moonpatC.BIN

moonpatD.BIN

 

Prize: a Moon Patrol buggy to display your game playing prowess.   Remind your friends (or grandchildren) who the real video-gaming master in the family is!

Well, first time in several years...

I hated that minefield as a kid, and I hate it as an adult too. Maybe at some point in the next week I'll memorize the moves to get through it. Or at least remember the moves to get through the first leg, since I'm sure my younger self NEVER cleared the entire minefield before growing angry at what I recognized even then as blatantly unfair game design.

An early example of my love/hate relationship with irem.
