Moon Patrol


Recommended Posts

 

One of my very favourite arcade games growing-up was Moon Patrol. Sadly, it does not seem to have been re-released as part of any compilations.

 

I can certainly play it through MAME, but has it ever been officially re-released on a console? (I have the Atari 2600 version, of course, but I wanted something closer to the original.)

The arcade version was released on Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Midway Collection 2  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcade's_Greatest_Hits:_The_Midway_Collection_2

 

It's also available on modern consoles and mobile as part of the "Arcade Archives" series

That's probably the only PlayStation and PS 2 arcade game collection that I do not currently have. Sigh.  

 

I'm sure I remember having that one, but suddenly I can't find it!   (also sigh) 

 

 

Unless I'm thinking of the PS2 release that also had Joust 2 (but no Moon Patrol).

I remember buying it brand new when it first came out.  I still have it somewhere.  Moon Patrol was also released with Spy Hunter on a 2-for-1 cartridge for the Game Boy Color right around that time.

Outside of arcade archives on various eshops, the arcade version also recently made it to the Irem arcade 1 cart on evercade.

Yeah I had all the other games except Moon Patrol so there must've been a separate Midway release.

Why would just settle for the original, when you could enjoy the awesome reboot for the Intellevision Amico?

I hear the limited editions are nearly sold out.

The original arcade versions have also been promised to be released, all of them.
