Is it any good?


A MOON FOR THE SKY is an arcade game similar to Break Out or Pinball where the goal is to bounce the moon (a ball) through the sky -- gathering stars and bonuses along the way -- by drawing a "trampoline." Players earn coins as they gather stars, avoiding obstacles like Martians. The game has two game modes, "No Limit" and "Adventure," providing limitless replayability. Players can use coins -- either earned or purchased -- to unlock new moons or, in the No Limit game, to restart from where they wiped out. The game is extremely easy to play, yet challenging as the difficulty ramps up with each game, and can prove addictive. The artwork is lovely, especially in the iPad HD version.
