Where do I begin with this review? This game almost made me break down and cry because it was such a good story. I kind of felt bad that I didn’t break down, because the majority of the people who played this game actually cried. Other than that it really made me grow attached to the characters, and you’ll feel sympathy for the characters too. It also kind of reminded me of a visual novel when I was playing.
Story: To The Moon is an indie adventure RPG, where two doctors go into a dying man’s memories to fulfill his last wish- to go to the moon. In order for them to go back into his memories they must get mementos. Mementos are locked; you must go looking throughout the memory that you are in to look for links to break the memento. That’s how you gain access to other memories. You go back to the main character’s past and find out how he met his wife, River. You also find other things that the doctors have trouble with, but you’ll have to play the game to know what they had to deal with.
Gameplay: Throughout the game, you mostly use your mouse to move around and to click on links. After you break a memento, you must get it ready by completing a picture. Near the end of the game, you dodge spikes on the ground, flatscreen TVs, zombies, and big balls that come across your path. That’s when you must use your arrow and WASD keys to throw plants at the zombies that are attacking you. I think most people will like it.
Graphics and Audio: The graphics are pretty good for an indie game. It reminds of RPG Maker on Steam; you can use it to create this game. The audio is really great! I personally loved the soundtrack throughout the whole play through. I especially like the opening theme. It brings a sense of peace when you hear the song. You’ll not only hear it in the opening theme, but also in the game as well when you look back at the dying old man’s past that he wrote the opening theme song.
– The game has controls that are really easy to use. Anybody could just pick it up and start playing it without having trouble.
– The story line is great; it has its moments where you might cry because you get really attached to some of the characters.
– You won’t know what to do at times. I remember having to look up a walkthrough to see what I had to do next. A walkthrough is handy at times.
There is some language in the game, most of which is censored.
I really enjoyed playing this game. It’s worth the buy if you like games that will make you cry or make you grow attached to the characters. I honestly don’t regret buying this, but it’s up to the viewer to make that decision, not me. I’ve already played it. Hope this review helps!
