Moon Raider is a Retro Action Platformer out now for iPhone and iPad

Looking for some hardcore platforming action this weekend? Then we reckon you should definitely give Moon Raider a look. It’s out now, it’s got super chunky graphics and it looks like a whole moon boat full of fun.

The game’s story involves the queen of the moon, a scientist and their daughter. You need to battle through the catacombs under the surface of the moon to grab moon gems to keep your mum, the queen, alive.

There are ten different areas to explore, and eleven massive bosses for you to try and take down. The inhabitants of the moon aren’t too friendly, and they’ve got some offensive technology that packs a punch.

Expect traps, tricks and plenty of heavy weapons to block your way. You’re going to need your wits about you if you’re going to get to the end. Check out the trailer we’ve embedded below to find out more.

Oh, yeah, did we mention that the game features co-op gameplay? You’ll need two pads to do it, but it makes the whole package even more enticing. There’s an awful lot to like here, if jumping, shooting and alien slaughter is your thing.

You can download Moon Raider from the App Store right now by clicking here. The game will set you back $5.99, but we reckon that’s a small price to pay for all you’ll be getting.
