Never played the original moon patrol, but this is a pretty good arcade game. The password system really saved it, without that I'd probably just be complaining about the difficulty. Speaking of that... you really need to decrease the delay on your actions in general. When I touch the ground it takes quite a bit to move or jump again. Some of the parts are nearly impossible and I only got to the 2nd level. I'll probably be back to finish this, I'll edit this review when I do.
