Description

2058, Lunar Outpost Alpha. Contact with Outpost Beta was lost hours ago when routine excavation revealed a subterranean structure of unknown origin. You are Major Kane, Chief of Military Operations for the Extra Terrestrial Encounter Organization, and you and your team have been brought in to investigate. Erratic energy readings from deep below the lunar surface tell you that this will not be a diplomatic mission. Welcome to the Moon. Developed by Renegade Kid, creators of the award-winning Dementium: The Ward, Moon uses the Renegade Engine 2.0 Engine to push the Nintendo DS to its limits with an epic story, atmospheric environments and white-knuckle sci-fi FPS action. Moon is exclusively for the Nintendo DS.

  • Built on the Renegade Engine 2.0, Moon delivers rich environments and robust FPS gameplay that screams at a blistering 60 FPS.

The Other Dark Side of the Moon
Set on the Earth’s moon in the mid-21st century, in Moon, players take on the role of Major Kane. Chief of Military Operations for the Extra Terrestrial Encounter Organization (ETEO), you and your team have been brought in to investigate a series of strange happenings. Ever since the Roswell incident it has been clear that Earth has been visited by other beings, now a hundred years later it would seem that something similar may be happening on the moon. Contact with a distant lunar outpost was lost shortly after they reported discovery of a ‘hatch’ of alien origin during a routine excavation. What follows could be the next giant leap forward for mankind, but just what are we stepping into? Whatever it is, erratic energy readings from deep below the lunar surface has you thinking that it will not be a diplomatic mission. Welcome to the Moon Major.

Gameplay
Gameplay in Moon is split between what you would see in traditional action/adventure and a FPS games. This means that players can expect a variety of explorable environments tied to an immersive storyline, and lots of interaction with weapons and vehicles from a first-person perspective. But the driving aspect of gameplay in Moon revolves around its episodic format. Dedicated to the mobile nature and thus the need for multiple and easy save game saves, Moon is designed to be played in a continuous series of episodes. Each of these can be played at one of three levels: rookie, normal or veteran; providing a wealth of play options, no matter the level of skill of the player.

Weapons and Vehicles
The alien enemies, bosses and terrain that you will encounter in Moon necessitates the need for an arsenal of futuristic weaponry and transport options. Below are just a few of the weapons and vehicles players can expect to use both above and below the lunar surface:

A Fermion Sniper gun from 'Moon' for DS Fermion Sniper
An advanced sniper system utilizing a high-density laser to strike over long distances, its wire-thin beam is nearly silent and invisible and usually only noticeable as a huge eruption of heat at impact.
A LOLA-RR10 vehicle from 'Moon' for DS LOLA-RR10
With an armor piercing laser turret and all terrain capabilities, the Low-Gravity Land-Based Reconnaissance Repulse vehicle provides devastating recon and combat functions.
A Seeker Pod from 'Moon' for DS Seeker Pod
A prototype gravity weapon, the seeker pod generates a temporary gravity field around a slow moving projectile, crushing all material within the spherical targeted areas it is aimed at.
A Remote Access Droid (RAD) from 'Moon' for DS Remote Access Droid (RAD)
A small reconnaissance robot that links to user's sensory input and output, a RAD allows users to explore hostile lunar environments that would otherwise be off limits.
