Launch rockets at him to make him stop.

Hmm. That only annoyed him ... Good! KEEP DOING IT.

Take an animated journey through the weirdest reaches of space...

* Balance risk vs reward. Longer shots = more points. But do not miss!
* Reach goal milestones for score-boosting bonuses and unlock a bunch of silly costumes!
* Features two game modes: Classic Mode and Sixty Second Challenge.
* How mad can you make the moon? Can you make him stop singing?

It's you versus the moon. As you always knew it would be someday.

"A very approachable concept with a whole lot of personality and a surprising amount of nuance." - Touch Arcade

What’s New

Version 1.75

This is a minor update that fixes the following bugs:
- A cheeky bug that could allow ads to still show after purchasing the Unlock All Costumes IAP.
- A tiny bug that sometimes prevented saved data being loaded from iCloud.
- A surprisingly stubborn bug that messed up the layout of the score share screenshot.
That's it for now! I wish you good luck in the ongoing battle against humanity's oldest and greatest foe, the Moon. - Shaun

Absolutely adorable illustrations

This game is truly one of the cutest, funniest, challenging games I've ever downloaded. I've actually beaten the moon, but STILL have games where I find myself getting roasted, teased and taunted by this little brat of a moon. I think he holds a grudge.
I'm pretty sure this is the only game that has ever made me laugh out loud—more than once! I'm also pretty sure this is the only game I've ever not felt compelled to mute at least the music. And the kazoo version is ridiculously cute.
I have also never encouraged people to download a game before—with this game, I'm like "You have to!"
OK ... big favors/requests:
Please, please, please make new costumes! (I've got thousands and thousands of coins and nothing on which to spend them!) Also—PLEASE make more games period. I really love this one.

Because Everyone Wants To Shoot The Moon

Wow this is one of the best games I’ve been playing on my phone and it is definitely not addicting because I totally did not spend three hours playing it in a row last week and really the game is totally logical especially the part where the moon gets so angry that it pops a little angry red thing out of its head and anyways I’m sure everyone has wanted to shoot the moon, you probably have wanted to shoot the moon and I know I’ve wanted to shoot the moon so that is why you should go now and download shoot the moon but don’t shoot it too much or it gets so angry that pops seven little angry red things out of its head and goes cross eyed and explodes.

Extremely Addicting!

What an awesome game! Amazing Graphics with a Huge selection of characters and never boring! Those little guys get you all riled up when you miss a shot because they make fun of you with there hilarious facial expressions, which makes you want to kill them even more. The game is certainly more challenging than it looks:)) The background music and sound effects compliment the game to perfection.

I had a small issue after purchasing to unlock all characters and remove ads. The developers responded immediately and fixed the problem ASAP! I was very impressed:))

Developer Response ,

Update: Thanks for the positive feedback! Glad to hear that restarting the game helped. New update is out now that squishes that bug for good! :D - Shaun.

Oops, I'm sorry about that. It's certainly not meant to keep showing ads, so thanks for letting me know. I managed to replicate the issue and believe I've found the problem, so I should be able to submit an update soon to fix it. In the meantime, I think you can stop the ads from appearing if you completely quit out of the app and then run it again, as it checks whether ads have been removed when the game loads, and that part appears to be working properly according to my testing. Thanks again for alerting me, and also for playing Shoot the Moon and unlocking the characters! - Shaun
