If so, check out Moonfighter from Astraware and Pazzazz Games, a gravity-based shoot-em-up game that will have you fighting off aliens while trying to avoid become part of the lunar landscape.

Moonfighter offers three types of alien enemies: Turrets – static units placed at strategic points around the terrain; Spiderbots – walking units that climb the cavern walls and Saucerbots – anti-gravity platforms that can float around. Enemy attacks take the form of Guns – unguided laser bolts with unlimited range; Missiles – medium range guided torpedoes; and G-weapons – short range gravity distortion fields that either attract or repel your craft. As players fly around the alien terrains they will encounter narrow valleys, lunar peaks, and underground caverns many of which are protected by heavy-duty blast doors.
