Moonlight is a platform game developed and published by the MonkeyMaw studio.
The main theme of this game is the moon. You play a kind of cat, squirrel, bear ... well, stuff that fell in love with the moon. His dream, his only dream is to get closer to the moon to meet one who stole her heart. I do not know if it's wanted, but in the West (ie us), the moon symbolizes the feminine sensuality but also motherhood.
Introduction to Moonlight
You play Kinubo. Kinubo is something, that is a mixture of different animals or can be something, someone new.
What characterizes Kinubo is that it does not cover (all the inhabitants of this village have their hats).
Nothing is known of him except that he is in a village where he knows no one and that he declares his love, his love for the moon. From that moment, it looks (you) the means of achieving it.
You tell me, why Kinubo looking to go to the moon in a village where he knows no one and not in the village where he was born and his friends? Well, simply because it would not play otherwise!
Kinubo needs the help of the villagers, but they do not trust him. Who is he ? What does he want ? Why does he come here? Why not at home? We now know the answer, because there would be no game!
Kinubo should be helpful. Machin has lost his dog, he must find him contraption wants to eat apples, you have to pick on the tree ... these are examples of real life, they are not in the game but the idea, yes . More Kinubo make services more it is closer to the one who can bring about the moon, the owner of the ball!
A few things around the game :
If you ever forget your quest for the time, press "ESC" and go to the newspaper, he will remind you of your mission. Your first quest is to speak with the top person in the lighthouse. If you have not yet found, the lighthouse is on the extreme right and there are platforms (going up) hidden in the wall.
The theme, symbolism, the atmosphere, the colors of the game, so good together. The choice made by the author are excellent. By cons, history and the text go a little less together. We realize that the one who wrote really do not master the subject (writing stories, it's a job) and I find it a little too much emphasis on the fact that the villagers are bad because they do not automatically trust Kinubo.
My conclusion :
This is definitely a good game platforms with few weaknesses in screenwriting level, but we can make do. I'd love to have a port on the other computer platforms (Mac and Linux). If you like platform games, love games, survey games and games at a low price, then do not deprive yourself of Moonlight , the game is available on Steam .
