Moon Patrol + ASCII = ASCII Patrol

Again, I did not realize that I had an itch that I needed to scratch.

I remember many a college day playing at the rinky-dink videogame place in Isla Vista.

Of course, there was the champion, Gauntlet, and the surprisingly titled, Gauntlet 2.  But Moon Patrol and SideArms were the oddball favorites.

But was I surprised to see this recently...

Yes.  Moon Patrol in ASCII.

It runs in HTML5, Linux, Windows and something called FreeDOS.

Get it here!  (link) NOW!!

  1. So what was the itch anyway?
    Enjoyed :)

  2. The unknown itch for 80's video games reimagined in ASCII form, I guess.
