It's up to you, a lone space pilot operating the most advanced fighter ever.

Aliens have landed on the moon with the intention of taking over the world. It's your job to fend off the impending alien invasion, or die trying. Six levels of fast-paced action await you in a cart that has finally reached the U.S. Power-up the four weapons of your choice, using the one that is best suited to your own style. The mega-hot graphics will blow you away!
This game was a real blast when I first played it over a year ago. It shows its age next to other blasters, but still remains a good addition to anyone's shooter library. The game's rich detail and smooth interaction is tainted by a short adventure, but the trip is worthwhile and guaranteed to put even top gunners to the test.
It is good to see that someone is finally bringing out this super shooter. Although old it is hard to tell it from the intense action on the screen! Spectacular bosses, lots of power-ups and a good variety of weapons, all displayed on excellent backgrounds make this one of the best shooters for the Turbo!
This is shooter that is long overdue. The game resembles a side scrolling Blazing Lazers with less power-ups. The graphics are stunning and the music is extremely well done for a card. The game play is great and provides solid shooting action from start to finish. The cart is too short and there's not enough weapons.
Dead Moon is a top notch shooter that Turbo owners shouldn't pass up. While taking its sweet time to reach the states, it lost a few hairs, but it still has plenty of life in it! Great power-ups, bosses, and smooth game play are masterfully done. Though it's a ripe fruit, very few will taste as sweet.
