The Sun and Moon, the winner of Ludum Dare 29, is a platformer with a unique mechanic: you can dive into the ground. Momentum is conserved but gravity is reversed, letting you fling yourself high into the air or deep beneath the surface. The goal is always straightforward - collect the three orbs in the level and jump into the wormhole - but spikes, endless drops and impossible heights make this more and more difficult.Key Features
Dive into the ground - This unique mechanic preserves your momentum, letting you use the level itself to overcome a huge range of challenges.
Conquer over 150 levels - Run, jump and dive your way through levels spanning from easy to brutally difficult. You'll need to both master the controls as well as think outside the box.
Non-linear level unlock system - Explore the game in whatever order best suits you.
Achieve Time Goals - Three tiers of medals provide an additional challenge for even the easiest levels.
Minimalistic graphics - Straight-to-the-point graphics help you focus on the gameplay.
Music by Dubmood - A killer track that grows as you progress.

The Sun and Moon reviews and comments

What is The Sun and Moon? A Game that you can best compare with Super Meat Boy Because it goes from the System in a similar Direction. You have to collect Points in each Level and then leave the Level through a Portal. In order to create Motivation, there are three Times In each Level you can beat in order to create the Level 100%, it must also be said that Times are quite short and that it takes an Exercise to cope with the Level Perfect. However, an important Gameplay thing still needs to be mentioned, You can dive through the Platforms by pressing The string button, which gives the Game even faster Gameplay and creates a lot of Accuracy for managing the Level. Because of these Facts, I would advise any Fan of fast and heavy Platforms to Buy every time, Thumbs up.

Rather simple by its concept and its visual aspect, the Sun and moon hides its game well. If embodying a small ball that needs to recover other small balls by crossing obstacles and avoiding others before entering its hole does not seem to be a very catchy concept, the gameplay makes the difference. Lovers of platform games, puzzles but also of Speedrun (do not expect to win gold everywhere...) will be delighted to embark on this little game for a dozen euros. It certainly proposes reflection in small closed levels and proves in the end quite repetitive but it emanates a certain sensation of freedom of movement never tainted would be only by an ounce of frustration despite an insurmountable difficulty or almost as far as the records of time to beat.

COMPLETELY FUN AND ADDICTIVE. This game is both excellently pleasant and a nightmare. You can go through the levels in a relaxed fashion if you're here just for fun and don't care about times. And as soon as you try to get your first medals, even the easy ones, you begin to enter the real core of this game : it is well thought, a long series of puzzles for each level! What the quickest way to go? The most efficient one? You need to think hard and learn how to use the special diving skill. Sometimes you find roads just by chance. But it is a really satisfying game when you try. And I have a lot of fun dying and retrying . This is incredible. I have had a hard time with the music, but the visual is really beautiful. Simple and schematic, few colors and textures, using contrasts. Levels with different charts. There are a few additions each time, it's surprising. And since it's hard, it is really a LONG game. There's a free demo on the developer's website if you wish to see for yourself before you buy it. You can also wait for promotions.
