A Moon For The Sky
I have noticed a trend in some games on the iPhone/iPod Touch. That
trend is to have the action go from the bottom of the screen to the top.
This allows developers the ability to use the most space on the hand
held device. Additional speed can be used because there is more real
estate (so to speak). A Moon For The Sky has the player bouncing the
moon up into the sky. You are laughing aren't you?
Players draw small lines on the screen and the moon bounces off of them. If you do not catch the moon with one of your lines it falls off the screen and it is game over. The graphics range in A Moon For The Sky. There are some nice details in certain parts, and there is a lot of repetition. In fact after a few tries I knew when there would be something blocking my way in the center or sides. The moon has to smash through certain obstacles to progress. That is as violent as A Moon For The Sky gets.
The music in A Moon For The Sky is very mellow, soothing and relaxing. The frustration factor of this app needs that kind of music. It is very easy to make a mistake and see this weird guy rotating his head around. Special effect sounds fit the theme of this game, especially the collection of items. I also liked the bounce sound used when I hit them.
A Moon For The Sky allows players to enjoy this app in two major modes. There is endless play, or playing a level at a time in a world. I humbly suggest trying the levels. They are shorter, but are definitely challenging enough. The price point for A Moon For The Sky is good - ninety-nine cents. Even though Family Friendly Gaming was given a download code, I do believe A Moon For The Sky is worth the price of admission.
The rise of hand held devices and casual games mean playing a game for a few minutes and putting it back down are a reality. A Moon For The Sky is one of those games that can be played for a few minutes, and then put down. I appreciate that. The speed of the moon is the one aspect of A Moon For The Sky that can be a problem. A slower speed setting for it would have been nice. Not everyone has fast enough reflexes.
Maybe there will be a sequel to A Moon For The Sky. A Pie In the Sky is a thought that comes to mind. This app is safe for the entire family, and teaches us to learn the angles as something is obeying gravity. I had fun with A Moon For The Sky on the iPod Touch. The concept of bouncing the moon back into the sky is very intriguing.
