Yet another game by Windmill Software inspired by arcade originals, Moon Bugs is a blatant clone of Galaxian that unfortunately adds little to the tried-and-true shoot all aliens in sight concept. Your goal is to defend earth against insect invaders who descend from the top of the screen. Thats pretty much itand there is no variety in gameplay to make things more interesting, either. Its just shoot, shoot, and shoot until you get bored of insects that are several pixels wide. Quite a disappointment compared to similar games such as Cosmic Crusader or even Galaxian itself. Windmills later games, most notably Digger, are much better at enhancing the original concepts. Even the 4-color CGA graphics of Cosmic Crusader is more detailed than EGA in this game. My advice: try it out, and go play Galaxian instead :)
