About

NASA has once again landed on the lunar surface with the goal of colonization, research, and further exploration. Shortly after the return to the Moon, NASA has established a small outpost on the south pole of the moon called Moonbase Alpha. Utilizing solar energy and regolith processing, the moonbase has become self-sufficient and plans for further expansion are underway.
In Moonbase Alpha, you assume the exciting role of an astronaut working to further human expansion and research. Returning from a research expedition, you witness a meteorite impact that cripples the life support capability of the settlement. With precious minutes ticking away, you and your team must repair and replace equipment in order to restore the oxygen production to the settlement.
Team coordination along with the proper use and allocation of your available resources (player controlled robots, rovers, repair tools, etc.) are key to your overall success. There are several ways in which you can successfully restore the life support system of the lunar base, but since you are scored on the time spent to complete the task, you have to work effectively as a team, learn from decisions made in previous gaming sessions, and make intelligence decisions in order to top the leaderboards.
Key features: Team up with your friends...

The fate of a lunar colony rests on the shoulders of you and your team. Communicate and coordinate efforts with up to six players (LAN and internet) by using voice over communication.
Utilize the latest in NASA technology...

A fully functional rover that utilizes lunar physics is available to transport both players and supplies to all reaches of the lunar colony. You can build and pilot your own repair robot in order to fix crucial systems before time runs out.
Immerse yourself in an awe-inspiring lunar environment...

Take your first steps on the moon's surface in a truly accurate lunar moonscape that is unmatched in any other application.
Compete with your friends to reach the top of the leaderboards...

Do you have what takes it to be number one? When you win, your score will automatically be posted to the leaderboards for everyone to see.
A unique experience each time..

With multiple paths for game success, you'll need to learn to work effectively as a team, learn from decisions made in previous gaming sessions, and make intelligent decisions in order to top the leaderboards.
Tailor your game to fit your gameplay style...

Do you want to play with two players or six? With multiple game maps you can select the game environment that best suits your team's needs.

The speed of the game gave me dizziness. I got sick and had to turn off and uninstall the game.

I Do Not know what the game is, I spent the whole time with the chat doing the fool, and only for that I recommend downloading, and if you have friends to make the fool with the chat all at once is even better.

This good to be alpha but still has bad things with the resolution only reaches 1024x768 or something, being the case that my computer needs 1336x768. But if the game is good keep doing it MLG 420/10

This is a very good multiplayer n little long game due to the moving but interesting. The graphics are very beautiful and the missions are good. I recommend it for people who like played in multiplayer with strangers.

I never actually give negative Reviews for Games, but here I just Felt like I had to do it. The one Quest You can get done is not exactly exciting and very repetitive. There are few Components, always the same Mini-game and no Story at all. I really don't know why I spent 1.2 Hours in this Game and the Game still has 90% positive Reviews just because of the Text-To-Speech Feature. But luckily it's Free to Play ...

"Moonbase Alpha" is a beautiful little Game where you Play an Astronaut On a Lunar Colony. Due to a "Slich case," the Energy and Oxygen Supply is capped, so that you have to repair it now. One, including two vernsteuerbahre Roberter and one Mondrover, are available for this project. From my point of view, this Game is not bad, yes you can Play it maybe once or twice, but since it is a Free-to-Play Tiltel, it is not bad. Especially that this Game has a Multiplayer Mode, it makes it very easy for me to recommend the Game further.
