Info

Gameplay

Moonscrapers is a competitive 2-player tower building strategy game, in which your objective is to reach the moon before your opponent does. Expand your economy, block your enemy, and destroy what is left of his tower, all the while raising yours to greater heights.

There are many of tools at your disposal to achieve this goal. Every standard block that is added to the tower can be upgraded to help you defend your tower, attack your neighbour or increase your economy.

Outbuild, outwit and outplay your opponents and seize the moon!

Setting

Moonscrapers takes place during the 1960 – It has been 15 years since the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the Cold War Era. During these turbulent times, John F. Kennedy is president of the United States of America and Nikita Khrushchev is the Chairman of the Soviet Union. The population of the world lives in fear, as these two superpowers play a zero-sum game. Yet the US and USSR are about to show the world once and for all who is more powerful and scientifically advanced: they will claim dominion over the Moon!

Both nations have started building tall, monolithic towers which will represent the power and scientific prowess of the nation that first reaches the moon. The Cold War is about to heat up.
