This visually beautiful game will pull players in right away. The beginning Mercury levels all have the same kind of challenge (using gravity to swing around the planet and hit asteroids to gain their mass) and are relatively easy, so gamers can learn the basics of the game without worrying about complicated mechanics right off the bat. It's fun to be able to control and maneuver a moon in space, but easily frustrated kids may not enjoy the higher levels of the other planets because of the number of times they may have to attempt each level; with each new level, the difficulty ramps up, goals are harder to reach, and trial and error is pretty much required. Even with that said, the game mechanics are simple and easy to use, and the large number of levels helps this game last for a long time, providing loads of replayability. Gamers who love to solve science-based puzzles and trying to improve on previous performance will enjoy Luna's Wandering Stars.
