DOS - 1984
Description of Moon Patrol
Moon Patrol is a great PC port of Atari’s classic coin-op and Atari console game. In one of the earliest 2D platformers, your goal is to blast aliens flying overhead while jumping over rocks and chasms, all in the heroic act of defending the Moon from alien invasion. The game has excellent controls (especially when played with a joystick), very detailed graphics (by 1983 standards of course), and even memorable music.
Fast, furious, and fun – the way games are meant to be. Another testament to Atari’s undisputed knack for making addictive arcade games, Moon Patrol is a must-have.

Did some testing on this. In DOSBox, a setting of 240 emulates the IBM-PC CPU running at 4.77MHz.
The game runs a little slow at this speed, and visibly struggles to keep up when there is a lot happening on screen. However, at the same era 8MHz IBM Compatible CPU's were more starting to be released, and these are emulated with a cycles setting of 400 in DOSBox. The game runs much better at this speed, but still slows down noticeably on scenes with a lot of action.

Played the original in the arcade at the local skate rink. I was wrapped when I finally got this on the C64.

just tested it, it works fine under BOXER app.
Just make sure you slow down the CPU speed (alt+cmd+arrow down) to play the game at a normal speed.
