Default Moon Patrol

Hi all,

can anyone please help me with naming an old PC game... it was totally 2d, you were a little moon buggy thing and you drove along jumping craters and shooting at mountain mound things to get away from the space ships. Also the same space ships would fire at you on the higher levels to make the game that bit harder. You got the classic arcade style 3 lives and 7 continues before being put back to the start.

To help with timeframes we're talking back in the days when the monitors were RGB (only three colours) and I was only around 4 so 1986ish.


Any ideas?


Thanks

Stu

For the sake of correct terminology, that was CGA. When you use the designation RGB, you imply 24-bit mode (aka "True Color").
