App description: Only 12 men have stepped foot on the mysterious lunar surface that lurks mysteriously in our night sky. Will you be the next?

To The Moon! is highly addicting but, in a different way. Instead of mind numbingly trying to get as high as possible you have to use your piloting skill to try to hit boosters, upgrades, and fuel. Although by just doing that you have no chance of reaching the moon. You must also use your money earned to buy upgrades for your ship, so you have a chance of reaching the moon.

Developed by a 3 member team including two 8th graders!

TylerS's comments:

Currently the version on the App Store is 1.1. The new version 1.2 should be available by Monday which includes improvements on older devices as well as streamlining the over all feel of the game.

Have any questions,comments,suggestions right them below and I'll get back to you quickly. I'm the developer

Please don't use your age as a selling point. I'm tired of seeing "made by a _ year old!" it makes it sound like the only reason we should buy your game is because you're young. You don't see other devs describing their age and situation in the app description.

I agree with not using age as a selling point.
It honestly doesn't make me want to buy it at all.
Also, being a young dev may imply that it's not as polished as other games, because of lack of experience and time.

Just removed it from the store description. It did come off a bit cheesy, I'll save it for the press release.

Well, I have to admit this: when I see "developed by a 12-13-14 ecc yeard old!" I know immediatly I will not buy that game!
I don't know why, but that's my reaction.

I love this world!

"Developed by a 97 year old." Now that would get my attention.

Nobody gives a hoot how old a developer is. If the game is good then it is good regardless and also if it is rubbish it is rubbish regardless of age or anything.
If anything I's say the age thing puts people off.

I will agree on the immediate notion NOT to buy a game developed by a XX year old, but I still find it impressive to create a game and have it listed on the Itunes store at such an age...I couldn't do it.
