In Moon, the year is 2058 and the United States has established a series of stations on the moon to perform scientific experiments and construct a Mars launch facility. An extraordinary discovery has been uncovered at one of the dig sites, a sealed hatch leading beneath the moon's surface. The player assumes the role of Major Kane, the leader of a special task force sent to investigate the mysterious hatch and reveal its secrets.
Moon will feature first-person shooter gameplay and full 3D environments that the player will explore. Over the course of the game, the player will collect a variety of weapons to fight enemies. The game has three difficulty modes and is presented in multiple episodes with checkpoints scattered throughout. The upper screen of the DS will display the player's view of the environment, while the lower screen will display menu commands and a real-time map.The game's story will be revealed as the player progresses through each level with pre-rendered cutscenes, as well as through communications with the player character's superiors at the home base. Much of the fighting the player will experience will take place in narrow corridors, although the developer has mentioned that the updated game engine will allow for wide-open environments and large groups of enemies. Also, the game will not feature any multiplayer mode, with the focus of the game being the single-player campaign.
While the gameplay is mostly action-oriented, several puzzles will be included to challenge the player. Some of these puzzles involve the player taking control of a small robotic drone to travel through vents and tunnels to unlock doors. The drone will be armed with several weapons to fight off enemies in the tunnels.
During gameplay, the player can accumulate a maximum of seven different weapons, not including the drone. Weapons can be selected using the touch screen, and gameplay is automatically paused during weapon selection. Aiming is also accomplished on the touch screen, with movement assigned to the D-pad or buttons, depending on the player's settings
