Skunny: Lost in Space is a side-scrolling shooter released in 1993 by Copysoft.
All TV Satellite dishes have been stolen by a horde of crazed Schnozes. Astronauts were sent to the Moon to retrieve the dishes but have been captured by the villains and are now being forced to take part in bizarre alien rituals. The secret agent Skunny Hardnut is then sent to the Moon rescue the astronauts and retrieve the dishes, equipped with the state of the art Moonbuggy.
Skunny: Lost in Space is a rework of Atari's Moon Patrol. Skunny has to scroll all the way right at each level, firing the Moonboogy's twin lasers against enemies and jumping craters. The Moonbuggy has limited ammo and energy. As he wanders throughout Moon's landscape, he can collect lives, ammo and health items.
The player can choose any of the ten levels to start playing (two in the shareware version). The game features a "smart" save feature, which automatically saves the game if the player exits the level during gameplay.
This Video Game contains examples of:
- Meaningful Name: "Schnoz" must refer to the aliens having big noses.
- Nintendo Hard: Be prepared for a tough game.
- Take That!: The people who made the game don't seem to like Harry Manilow and his singing.
