The game play is very close to the original Moon Patrol game, but with several additions. Of course game menu is also added as Ascii Patrol is not coin operated, so players can choose, for example, a level to play.
Game itself is only one file at 475kb (exe is named temp.exe oddly enough)
Seems to save a sound setting for asciipatrol in the registry:
- Windows as pure console application
- Linux and Cygwin with optional X11 input handling
- DOS, FreeDOS, DOSBox and other DOS emulators
- Web Browsers with Canvas (WebGL is highly recommended)
