For System 1 - 5 - System 6.x
Emulation
This game works with: Mini vMac

Not to be confused with a Taito arcade cabinet with the same name, this is a Mac-exclusive game featuring artwork by Mike Saenz.

The moon's defense system has been sabotaged, causing it to fire on all ships trying to cross the supply lines between cities. Your job is to trade goods (at a profit), battle the automated weapon platforms, and scour the lunar canyons for the stolen defense system components that will restore order.

The game seems to have been initially developed and published by Ann Arbor Softworks, and later published by PCAI (which itself seems to be an early name for XOR Corporation).

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

Designed for the 512K through SE; does not run on SE/30 or any color Mac. Can be emulated with Mini vMac.
