    Moon Patrol is an arcade game by Irem released in 1982. It was licensed to Williams for distribution in North America. Moon Patrol is often credited for the introduction of parallax scrolling in side-scrolling video games. Taito's Jungle King side-scroller, released the same year as Moon Patrol, also uses parallax scrolling. The player takes the role of a Luna City police officer assigned to Sector Nine, the home of the "toughest thugs in the galaxy". There you go, not a boring place like back home on Earth.

    Only 2 days to go until this game is closed.

    Final Results ...

    The 5th annual arcade awards, which were more commonly known as the Arkies, gave a certificate of merit to moon patrol in the category of “1984 Best Science Fiction/ Fantasy Video Game”. It received 8 out of 10 in its review by Arcade Express in January 1983. In 2019 during MGL42, we had a lot of fun driving on the moon, as you step into the shoes of a member of an intergalactic police force by the name of Luna.

    Scoring over 100K on this game is more than a certificate of merit from the Arkies. Great gaming by megaderek, RMacauley, Foot, ILLSeaBass, Prow, DaLar, John73 and D.B. Cooper saw them finish from 3rd to 10th place respectively.

    Andrew Barrow scored a new PB and an incredible high of 488,520 points. In 1st place with one day to play, he was just pipped by less than 10K into 2nd place.

    Congratulations to Jason Vasiloff for winning Game 2 with a final lunar score of 498,050 points. That was an amazing effort under pressure, and he now takes home his 12th game win in MGL tournaments. That's a very nice collection.

    Roc’n Rope and Twin Cobra are currently in play. Plenty of action, in the arcade, is on the floor right now.
