Deliver Us the Moon is a Sci-Fi thriller set in an apocalyptic near future where Earth's natural resources are depleted. In an effort to solve the energy crisis, global powers created the World Space Agency and secured a promising new source of energy on the moon. The World Space Agency colonized and operated from the moon until one fateful night all communications with Earth ceased and the energy source was lost. Now, years later, you assume the role of Earth's last astronaut on a do-or-die mission to investigate what happened and save humanity...

Review imageIn the opening stages of Deliver Us the Moon you're tasked with putting on your spacesuit, and preparing to launch your space rocket towards the Moon. This is really a training level to get you used to the controls without it feeling forced.

Once you dock with the space station orbiting the Earth, your quest is to get life support back online, collect clues on what happened to the scientist who once lived and worked there before they mysteriously lost contact with Earth.

Your only companion is ASE, a small robot who can reach areas you can't, as you explore the open lunar landscape with weightless freedom - by foot, rover or monorail. To help you in your quest you can use various equipment including cutting lasers, rockets and robot arms.

Review imageThe designers have captured the feeling of weightlessness in space particularly well, and it's surprisingly good fun to float through the air. At times it's a little disorienting, with no clear idea of which way is up and down, but there are plenty of little touches in your environments to help ensure you never get completely lost.

The puzzles are pitched at just the right level so that you never feel like it's a breeze, while at the same time you don't get so frustrated that you rage quit.

The soundtrack is also incredibly atmospheric, helping to add another level of intrigue and mystery to the story. It's a beautiful looking puzzle game that is a breath of fresh air in a crowded marketplace.
