Earth Vs Moon Review
- The game features a simple and easy to use control scheme.
- Nice lighting and visual effects.
- There are three game modes to choose from.
- The slow missile speeds tend to slow down the gameplay.
- The gameplay is very repetitive.
- There are no online leaderboard options, restricted to local highscores only.
There really isn’t enough action here to keep players entertained for long periods of time. This game is not worth the current price.

Earth Vs Moon is a shooter game where players take control of Earth’s missile defence systems and must stop all incoming missiles from the Moon. Your goal is to protect the Earth from destruction and defeat the various boss characters that appear throughout the game.
Players control where missiles are fired by tapping the screen. Your missiles will fire and hopefully get hit an incoming missile. If two or more enemy missiles are in close proximity, players can try to get a chain explosion for a combo multiplier. But be careful as Earth has a limited ammo supply and shots must be fired accurately in order to survive the oncoming attack.
The visuals, while simple, look quite good and detailed. The sound is subtle but adds tension as the beep of incoming missiles gets faster the closer it gets to impact. Players are also free to use their iPod during the gameplay with no loss of these sound effects. The game has three modes; story, survival and timed boss battles. Each of which is single player with local highscore options only.
Earth Vs Moon is a shooter game in the same style as Missile Command. However, the slow gameplay and limited ammo count tends to restrict players a bit. But beyond that, there really isn’t enough diversity in the gameplay to be a great title. That said however, if you like slower more calculated gameplay, then you might find a fun little timewaster in Earth Vs Moon.

“Earth vs. Moon is truly a well-crafted missile command game. Its sense of humor is a welcome addition, and its clever story, even given its genre, is just one of the ways in which this game goes above-and-beyond its fellows.” (4 out of 4 - Must Have) --- Slide to Play
