Description[edit | edit source]

The shooter game Moonsweeper is like an arcade game. Your mission is to rescue all miners from the Jupiter. You started in the space of the star quadrant Jupiter. There you must shoot or evasive deadly aurora flares, photon torches and space bullets from the sun. From time to time you can fly to the surface of Jupiter and collect the stranded miners, but also appears laser towers and lunar satellites and sometimes alien surface destroyers. If you have the maximum of miners collect, you fly into the space again by using the accelerator rings. It exists different levels and different moons...

Design[edit | edit source]

The graphics is very good. Only sound effects are used by shooting or changing the phase.

On the bottom line the cockpit shows (from left to right): The velocity, the direction (left, right or straight ahead), the max. number of Jupiter rescue missions, the radar of the stranded miners and your score, the lives (numbers of ships, max. 5) and the numbers of collected miners (max. 5), also the fuel.


Phase 1: Landing on Jupiter
Phase 2: Collect miners on Jupiter
...game over!
