Love this game so much. Glitch no longer occurring. Must have been something else...only happened that one time. Haven't had a chance to play it since

Top 5 spots on the leaderboard are all hacked.
There's 335,000 players now though, so I'm sure it's tough keeping up.

It's definitely a losing battle. So strange how determined some people are to submit completely made up scores.

I've been working on an update that should be done fairly soon. It's only an interim one, mainly to fix an issue with the game overriding any music/podcasts that might be playing, but also to add score sharing via social media. Once it's done I plan to start on a more fun/interesting update.

And then after, I hope to get a chance to play all the amazing games that have been coming out lately!

crazy game! Made me hate the moon!! Anyways great design and the small attention given towards the expressions of moon is epic.. Could play this game even with music turned off and was still having a pleasant time.

Wow, I just saw Shaun Musgrave's review here on TA, and I must say I'm thrilled to bits!

Apart from my total surprise at being reviewed (I assumed I had gone off the radar a while ago), I'm delighted with the the fact that Shaun so accurately conveyed the core elements of the game, particularly with lines such as:

"...taking a lot of shorter shots will leave you with fewer points and more red satellites."

"Really, the smart play is to shoot the moon and go for those long shots."

"...keep your cool and take the best shots, not the easiest or quickest ones."

Which is exactly right. In fact, anything less than a full-length shot is basically a consolation prize.

Also, I think it's good that Shaun pointed out that the game is unlikely to have much long term appeal for people who aren't into score chasing. Not only is that an accurate observation, but personally I feel it's better if players are aware of that going in, as some of the less positive responses I've had are from non-scorers who shortshot their way to 30 or 40pts, miss, and then think, is that it... what's the point?

Finally, if I had to pick one favorite line from the review to put on the 'box', I'd say it's this one: "It's a very approachable concept with a whole lot of personality and a surprising amount of nuance."

But I certainly got a kick out of the "powerful existential philosophy" line.

So thanks for taking the time to review Shoot The Moon. I was like the Karateka dance gif after reading it.

Now it's back to my bubble/cave (bubblecave?) to continue working on the update. It's basically done, but I'm experimenting with different game modes -- would like to squeeze at least one extra mode into this update.


@geet_gamer Thanks, but try not to hate the moon too much. Remember, all he wants to do is sing and sing and sing and occasionally laugh at you.
