Today’s game was posted online in 2008 but has some rather great ideas and one key feature which has been taken and implemented in the game Snapshot. I Wish I Were The Moon was created by Daniel Ben and is currently playable on Kongregate.
I Wish I Were The Moon is a rather interesting game in which you must pick up and move around the characters and items on screen to create different endings to the game. It is a rather innovative game that may lack in gameplay, but is full of great ideas that just seem to work.
The game as it stands I believe has seven different endings with five of these being rather obvious, the final few will prove much more challenging as they begin to get a little elaborate but nonetheless the gameplay is rather interesting.
Average play time – 10 minutes
I Wish I Were The Moon contains several nice ideas and has been created in a brilliant pixel-art manner with some great detail that highlights the mood excellently. Although very short and lacking level variation the overall premise is great and is really what makes it a must play.
