The visual elements of this adventure are dessert for the eyes, while the story will keep players hooked and coming back for more. Deliver Us The Moon tells a story about a lone astronaut and his robotic companion who try to outwit rogue robots, uncover the mystery behind the shutdown of the Earth's power feed from the Moon, and overcome the shock of what happened. Levels feature a mix of timed missions, some of which are easy to understand, while others are confusing. There are also some moments during the story that can be intense and potentially too much for younger players. Take, for example, the early timed quests in the cockpit. There's little direction and yet, you have to figure out how to scan the cockpit of the rocket for anything that can be used to activate the machine. Or when you first get to the space station and you're trying to restore power, there's no clear indication of what you should be collecting or what to do with the items once collected. All the while, the clock is ticking down, increasing the pressure on you. The only saving grace is that if you fail the task, it simply restarts.

The musical elements are terrific and the graphics do a wonderful job in transporting players into the ​​​​​​sci-fi realm. The game uses environment lighting and music to drive the sense of urgency during some missions. Helping to boost the tension is the fact that the point of view alternates between first person and third in some sections, which works well to draw you in. Some visuals are a bit choppy and ugly, but the game scores overall with its graphic presentation and is a fun experience. The biggest drawback is that Deliver Us the Moon doesn't have a lot of replayability value, so once you're done, you may not return to this one. Obviously, the game's strengths are only minimally diminished by its faults. If a solid story, and terrific graphics carrying a long an evolving adventure story are appealing, this is definitely worth checking out.
