The Sun and Moon is a physics based puzzle game from Digerati Distribution. Players will navigate each level collecting pulsing orbs. Once you collect everything you can find your way to the exit.
Each stage is full of obstacles and traps to keep you from completing your goal. What makes this game unique is its interesting mechanic in traversing each stage. Holding any of the shoulder buttons while in the air will have you dive into the stage rather than land on the surface.
While “phasing” gravity is reversed and you will use the momentum collected to slingshot yourself out of the floor. This is necessary for some stages that have orbs simply out of reach by any other means. This can also prove hazardous. If you have too much momentum you will simply throw yourself out of the bottom of the stage.
With over 100 stages available to play, the difficulty exponentially grows over the course of the game. The games difficulty curve is reminiscent of Super Meat Boy. Each stage also has three medals, awarding you for how fast you can complete them.
The visuals are very, very simple, with a 16-bit camo background and gameboy-ish graphics. The games music is good yet repetitive, with a retro, “chiptune” style.
Beyond the main mechanism, there isn’t much else to this game. Use the phasing technique to progress through increasingly difficult levels. It’s perfect for puzzle fans looking for a challenge, and that’s about it.
