Title: MoonBase Commander
Release Date: 13 Aug, 2002
Man, I remember this game... Back when I was in middle\/high school, picked this up at a Big Lots' bargain bin sale. Thing looked old, but I figured "why the hell not?".
It's a fun little game with an interesting feature: You fight with your buildings, not soldiers.
You become more powerful by expanding your base, setting Energy Collectors to boost the amount of energy you have to spend each turn, which allows you to perform more actions, such as launching more buildings and attacks.
The base is expanded by launching structures from a "Hub", which is the primary building for attacking and expanding the base. The hub can launch other hubs for further expansion, or set defensive buildings like forcefield generators and anti-air missile bases. And, of course, they can launch energy collectors for collecting energy. The Hub can also launch attacks against other buildings by launching a variety of ranged attacks, such as regular bombs, scatterbombs, missiles, and even a virus! The Hub can also launch a special "offensive" building which can only launch attacks, but at a far greater distance than the regular Hub.
This game also has a unique feature where all the bases are connected to each other by Power Cords. The power cord shows not only which bases are connected, but which hubs are supplying them power (aka which hubs they were launched from). If you destroy a hub that is supplying power to other buildings, those other buildings are also destroyed.
All in all, this game is fun. My favorite attack is the Energy Spike. You can hit cords and attack the two buildings on both ends of it!. I used to play this game as a kid. I loved it then and still do today. It's great to see it released on Steam. already bought it for myself and for several friends as well. Runs on anything. great game for lan parties, In my past I've also spent countless hours in single player. Never gets old. Highly recomend. A+++ rating. A must have. Honestly cannot say enough about how awesome this game is!. Simple to learn, hard to master.
It's an old game, but a good one none the less.
Shooting buildings without letting power lines cross is a simple concept, but has infinite depth. It forces you to consider your actions ahead of time and plan wisely, and then when you inevitably miss a high priority shot, you must adapt.
The choice of structures and weapons make the game interesting, but high stakes as the prices can be quite high.
Overall, this game hit the jackpot between skill and strategy, interweaving them so much, they're almost indistinguishable.
I may not have extensive play time, but i know a good game when i see one.
A few quirks, but still amazing.
9\/10. Casual game for the not so casual gamer.
This game is awesome and absolutely infuriating.
Great , simple, strategy game that makes you shoot your base from key-buildings .. you will miss often ...
Best played vs friends, preferably with voice-chat turned on :). I used to play the hell out of this game. The main issue with the game is lack of multiplayer support beyond LAN connections. My friends and I used to create a virtual LAN by using Hamachi but it's difficult to get most people to go through all that trouble to play an old game like this. Otherwise I would buy this for some friends but at least I can enjoy it and know it'll be in my steam library so I won't lose access to it.. This is the greatest game to ever bless the world with its presence. A true classic, Moonbase Comander immerses the player in a sci-fi world of intense strategy and beautiful destruction. Battle your friends, or take on the AI on a multitude of premade maps, or use the level editor which is easy and fun to use. A sassy, robotic voice is hilarious and the funky music will always keep you groving. The wonderful simplicity of Moonbase Commander gives games on the caliber of Starcraft 2 a run for their money. Moonbase Commander is a must-buy.. I used to play this game when I was around 8 or 9 and loved the\u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665out of it, this game has caused me to have the biggest nostalgia boner possible.. When I heard this was on the auction block, I seriously wondered how much it would go for. Was saddened when it disappeared into the maw of Atari, never to be seen again. Until now!
This may be the best strategy game that nobody played, and it just begs for a modern port for touchscreen devices. It's just an awesome strategy game with simple controls, and a depth that really grows on you over time. Yeah, the graphics are nothing special, they looked 10 years old when the game launched 10 years ago. The multi-player is LAN only. The voiceover accents are cheesy. It doesn't matter.
You play by launching one of 18 nodes onto the battlefield, scorched eath style. Every node costs energy, and is connected to the node that launched it by a chain. If a node is destroyed, the nodes launched from it are destroyed in a chain reaction. There's the skill of placement, the tactics of deciding what to launch, and the strategy of resource management and the fog of war. There's never been another game quite like it, before or after. And that's sad. But at least you can still play this, even on Windows 8.1, 64 bit.
Penny Arcade's effusive love for this game is still as relevant today:
As this is an old game, there's not a lot of handholding. The challenge mode works as a tutorial, but you really should read the manual. Seriously.
It shows that this was a labor of love by a developer otherwise known for children's games. They must have polished this sucker in the back room for years playing amongst themselves. I've no idea how they made the pitch for this game work, but I'm still glad they did. Personally, I bought this just to convince Rebellion that a modern port is worth their time, this is one of the few game CDs that I've kept on the shelf since I bought it, and carefully re-installed on every new machine.. This game will always be a classic I think, likely because I've never seen anything else like it. The way it blends strategic, turn-based mechanics with the action and precision of the aiming mechanics is really something very unique, and insanely addictive.
I like the unique mechanics, the innovative aiming system that vaguely reminds me of golf games but better, the well-balanced gameplay and weaponry, the sick music, and also the ability to create your own maps. Only things I dislike are relating to its age really, the resolution is kinda poor and you have to somewhat jump through hoops to play online. There are community tools to make online play easier, but it doesn't function through Steam.
I'd highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys both action and stra...
