    Deliver us the Moon is a fun, tension filled puzzle game with a great story and a few flaws. You can tell the developers did research to make this Moon puzzle as realistic as possible. This game contains little to no violence which makes it a great brain teasing game for mostly everyone. What could improve this game is a better menu system, more camera control, and perhaps more NPC engagement. I give this game an 85 out of 100 for the enthralling puzzles, compelling side stories, and realistic game play.

    Deliver Us The Moon excels on multiple counts, delivering a story filled with hope and despair. A handful of issues hinder the game a bit, but nothing gets in the way of what makes the game successful.

    Deliver Us the Moon is a short but exciting adventure set in the beautiful depths of space. With the fate of humanity in your hands you’ll feel determined to see things through to the end. There’s a good variety of puzzles you’ll need to solve, and while none of them are particularly difficult, the real pleasure is in seeing what new wonders the game has in store for you in each area.

    Deliver Us the Moon is an excellently made game that succeeds in story and atmosphere. The lunar settlement is a fascinating place to explore, and even though it’s just filled with holographic ghosts, you get a sense of how it was once thriving and what exactly went wrong. The experience starts out strong and ends strong; some of the middle ground is a bit repetitive, but the narrative is engaging throughout and makes the journey worth taking.

    Visually appealing with sound effects and music to match, Deliver Us The Moon is a cosmic trip worth your consideration.

    Deliver Us The Moon is the kind of game where it's kind of obvious that it could have been much, much greater with a bigger budget and more development time, because the premise is great and there's good ideas all over the place. If you love good stories -space stories, particularly- you'll have a great time with it.

    The engaging plot serves as an effective carrot that makes players want to chase that next narrative milestone. It isn’t perfect, but would-be astronauts will find plenty to love once they commit to taking that one, giant leap for mankind.

    I was never bored solving the puzzles because they are always new & different.
    A very good game and a pleasant surprise.

It's one of those little indie games that won't change the industry, but that always feels good to play. Not especially long, and definitely not hard, but fun to play and interesting. Just one moment that got me yelling, when you have to go slowly between some electricity things, several times in a row, with no gravity. Maybe I'm just bad but it was frustrating haha. Only that moment tho, the rest of the game was good. Loved also the parts when you go outside, with the heavy silence of the moon. Expand

    I love space games. I thought for an Indie game, it's pretty amazing. Graphics are good, gameplay is mostly smooth. There are some occasionsI love space games. I thought for an Indie game, it's pretty amazing. Graphics are good, gameplay is mostly smooth. There are some occasions where control over the character is difficult and actions are clunky. You can tell it was made for PC and use of mouse and keyboard/gamepad would make it 20x easier. The loading screens take forever, and sometimes I have to aim to the right of something for it to register. Saving could be a bit of an issue. You can't hop in and out as you please. There are save points and unless you make it to one of them before logging off, when you log back on you'll start at the last checkpoint you did reach.

    It's a short game that's fairly direct in objectives you need to accomplish. I succeeded at completing most tasks with little effort; except one glaring exception. I made it through launch, battery retrieval, enemies, tracks, and reactors first time. However, the last "mini-game" with the MPT has so much drag and reduction I haven't done it. I've tried repeatedly at this point. If I was able to use mouse and keyboard on PS4, I'd have done it first try like all the others. But with a single controller, I've done it 10x and it's just too much drag. I get games being made for PC and I love playing games there. However, greater consideration needs to be taken when adding it to a controller console. It doesn't function right, imo. I hope they fix an issue with the drag, otherwise I won't be finishing this game.

The final thing to end it I found frustratingly awkward, nigh on impossible. On a Steam thread the devs said there was a patch for this problem, maybe you want to try patching the PS4 version eh lads. Ruined a perfectly good game would have given it a respectable 4, minus 3 for a shoddy janky annoying broken end task. Expand
