Moose on the Loose is a single player arcade game.

Melker the elk has fallen asleep and as a result he did not migrate to the national park before the hunting season commenced. Now he's awake and he must travel to park and rejoin the herd.

This is an arcade style game in which Melker is guided from a start point, down pathways, to an end-of-level point that is always a chequered flag. Along the way there are pieces of fruit which, when run over, score points and off the path among the trees are bonus items, usually gems of some kind, which score very highly. Of course there are also obstacles which rob Melker of his health and these are best avoided.

Melker can be guided through the game by the keyboard or a joystick
