Theme interpretation
Moon Shield is a game where the moon gets shot around. Well, that's it :D

This game is a lot of fun to play, enjoyed the graphics as well! It is a bit of a struggle to click drag the moon initially, but after that it works really well with aiming as it goes into slow motion for the shot.

Cool idea, although found it nearly impossible to play with a trackpad.  Is it super necessary to actually click the moon itself to do the drag?  Might be more playable / fun if I was just able to swipe a direction and watch the moon go off in that direction, but not have to chase it with my cursor.

Wow rough game! I think the down time between moon shot is a bit too long. 

Developer

Thanks for playing (and for you comment)!

Nice entry, however you can continue to play during the game over screen :D.

The music is pretty damn cool, but the SFX are too loud !

Adding a button to getting back the moon instead of waiting for it would be better :) 

Developer

Thanks for playing!

As I was saying in another comment, I was looking for some sort of penalty when the moon goes too far from the Earth. I guess I'll have to improve on that point. :)

Nice idea! Also loved small details, like rotation of the stars on background :)

Developer

Thanks! That was a last minute idea! :D

I like the concept and the theme interpretation. But I have two things, which you could improve: 1. I would do screnn wrapping, so you can not fly off the screen and have to wait 5 seconds. And if possible change it, that you can click and drag anywhere to shoot the moon, because it is sometimes hard to click on the moon, when it travels fast. But Overall i really enjoyed playing this. Change these things and you could publish your game. Great Work!

Thanks for the comment!

I was looking for some sort of penalty for occasions where the moon goes too far from the planet, but perhaps forcing the player to wait for 5 seconds is a bit too much.. Anyways, thanks for your considerations, much appreciated!

I think the mechanics could do with a little tweaking, perhaps delaying when you can next "shoot" again and making the earth gravity have a bit more role? I found I could always sorta spam-click to move.

Cool idea, love the music. You could expand on this a lot, I bet!

Developer

Thanks for playing!

The moving mechanics were quite a pain to balance, especially when you want to "escape" from the gravity when you want to go somewhere, but at the same being kept under Earth influence. I could definitely tweak some more and your suggestions could fit well,  thanks!
