Now isn't this an interesting one. It's a bit like Animal Crossing, just not as.....In depth, I guess. Fairly difficult to explain thoroughly.

The main premise of this game is to advance. You will sell fish and such for more money, spend that money on a variety of different items, and trade items with other people on your planet. It's a very new concept, and I feel the game uses it quite well.

Gameplay wise- It's very similar to games you've probably already played as a child, like Animal Crossing, but with a refreshing new concept that helps the game not only connect to these triple-A titles but also develop it's own unique style. The in-game time moves at a rate that works well, which lets the game have different things be able to happen at different times of the week.

I very much have to also appreciate the art style. I don't know what it is about it, but it reminds me of fond childhood memories every time I look at it. It may not have the best art in the world, but it very well deserves some attention.

Overall, Cycle; Fourth Moon is a game that brings a good amount of light to its genre and will have you giggling like a child the whole way through. I have to- and I mean HAVE TO give this game a 10/10. This is one of if not the best flash game I've ever played, and manages to challenge some triple A games as well.

Interesting concept! Like Grimex said, it was a little hard to see, but the game itself is pretty awesome! Maybe you could implement a zoom when the character stops moving, and when they move it zooms out a little bit. Eitherway nicely done! Reminds me ever so slightly of Stick RPG (it's nothing like it, but you know what I mean :3)

Lol. Plant saps, immediately hack em and get the same amount of wood as grown, buy axes on discount fridays.. You'll have your debt paid within a month.
