Trivia

Rebel Moon Rising came into fame as being one of the first games to support the 'MMX Instruction Set' on MMX-enabled Pentium chips. Unlike other MMX-enabled games at that time, Rebel Moon Rising actually used MMX for something useful, and achieved 16-bit color textured rendering at the same speed (or faster) than 8-bit rendering.
