I really don't see how this got listed as one of the best games of the year. Honestly, the art is okay since it was done completely by mouse, but that's the only quality about the game, however not redeeming.
When I first started the game I was upset that there were only two main controls. Left. Right. Not to mention that John moves like a cripple. It's like there's gravity on the moon, nothing floated, nothing felt like I was on the moon besides the empty moon background. Boring. Boring was my first thought.
Then I saw the blood astronaut, who I thought was John in the future, who's spirit came to haunt him about a gruesome fate that would become of him. Nope. He was actually a completely different astronaut that had no relevence what so ever. That ruined everything for me completely, but let me go back to where I was: I kept going left. Right. Left. Right. Over and over. Moving the plot along. Also, the dialog was not very well edited. It was quite bland and just plain incorrect grammatically in some places.
Plus, when it comes to controls, I would find myself automatically going right or left sometimes when I wouldn't be pressing a button and I could literally moonwalk off the screen and into a black abyss. That was fun.
Really, this game does not deserve such abuse, but it's rated SO HIGHLY. Why? It's a good game if this is your first game or just something that you're putting out as one of your first projects, but it does not deserve acclaim whatsoever. This would have been better as a flash animation instead of a game.
I can't do better since I can't make games, and I guess other people really liked it, but I'm just here to say what's wrong with it. It's not opinion, it's just fact.
This is not my first game, you are basing only on the technical side of the game and this is wrong, I see that you did not understand the game, you must observe each scene, place and every words because the is not just a game where you move left and right, there is much more and that other users have understood this, but I cannot explain to you the meaning of the game, you have to understand the meaning, I repeat this is not just a game where you move left and right.
Great Game :D
I like how the atmosphere and the creepinees blended with the idea of the lonely astronaut on the moon was well made. And there was something about that weird astronaut covered in blood that looked great, maybe his bigger visor broken and the blood.
I just noticed some issues that really doesn't hinder the playthrough:
The slow walk... It made me bored a little bit by walking around so much but the suspense of what might happen kept me playing.
Another minor issue is in the secret room. When you are typing you can't press E otherwise the whole thing retries. I think clicking a button would do better.
Anyway, 5 Stars bro, nice job
PS: English is my 2nd language so I might mispell some shit and whatever :P
Do not worry about the English, the slow movement is used to maintain the atmosphere of fear In addition to the moon is impossible to run, however thanks for your good review and I'm glad you liked the game! :) :)
Why always pixels games are good why ...... I just Saying ''THIS IS SUPER''
Thanks and I'm glad you liked the game! :D
somehow it makes me remember to Apollo 18, i always liked the horror games that put you in scenarios like the moon, underground facilities, etc, it makes them a lot more scary, because you know no one can help you.
keep the good work!
Thanks for your great review and I'm glad you liked the game, the next mission for me is to see the movie "Apollo 18"
I Loved This game :) , I will play it again.
Thanks, I'm glad you like the game! :D :D
