Editorial Reviews


This game was all right, but apparently had a bug which prevented it from being completed. Also, there were spelling errors which should have been noticed.

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

When Moonbase isn't being adversarial, it mostly seems just sloppy and disinterested. There are plenty of spelling and grammar errors. The writing is flat and utilitarian, making wondrous experiences like teleportation and lunar exploration seem as humdrum as going to the corner store.

A short, mostly bland but well-clued space game, July 16, 2017

This game has you teleporting to a moon base to investigate a disappearance and stop a monster.

It has an instant death puzzle, but thankfully no mazes or light source puzzles. The game is well-clued, and its fairly easy to know what to do at all times (except right near the end).

The game has numerous spelling and grammar errors, but otherwise could be dressed up to be a fun game.
