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
"Anyone will be able to pick up the game and have a blast playing it." - Modojo
"I had a lot more fun than I expected to, which is no small feat for a casual free-to-play arcade game." - 148Apps

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

It’s perfect in every way

I grew up with Shoot The Moon when I was a kid, and I was addicted. I was really sad that there was nothing else more than the 60 Second Challenge and Classic Mode, but I also was kissing my screen and wanting to punch that moon in the best ways imaginable. I loved this game and I played it a lot, and I was having a good time. And did I mention the humor? It’s insult humor, but also in the best way.

When the moon sticks his tongue out at you, it makes you hate that guy but also makes you laugh a bit. I was mad and cracking up simultaneously as my volume was blasting the sound of the moon’s “Ooooh!” The game surprisingly was ad-free, so I was saved, and the lag isn’t really existent. This game is such a time killer, and I grew up with this great play through.

Me and my sister would be playing all day throughout evening, afternoon, morning, and night, frustrated and smiling like a roller coaster. If this game ever got a sequel, I would be so happy. But for now, this classic was so fun (and still is) to stroll through! It has an endless supply of difficulty, and I feel like this game should be recognized as a role model for other games.

Thank you for making this amazing masterpiece. I highly recommend it to everyone who owns a device. -Salty Coffee Bean

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.
