Moonbase, the Lunar Colony Simulator puts the player in command of a base on the moon. You have to supply the oxygen, water, power, heat and shelter for the entire colony. Starting with a virgin lunar plain rich in minerals and elements (but alien to everything human), you establish your shelters and life support facilities while keeping an eye on your population, supplies, and support levels from earth. You succeed only if your city becomes self-sufficient.

Two of the "unique" items which can be found doing exploration missions are the golf ball left by one of the Apollo astronauts, and a 'rock that looks like Elvis' which will then show up on the screen in the shape of a small electric guitar.
