This ninja flies with the best of them

In Moon Chaser, you are a stealthy ninja, controlling gravity, sliding along hills and valleys, and launching yourself high into the sky. Your challenge is to travel as far as you can, through different mountain stages, before the moon is completely eclipsed. Luckily, between each mountain stage, your moonlight is replenished, giving you just a bit more time to do your thing. Very similar to Dragon, Fly! and the extremely popular Tiny Wings, Moon Chaser is another addition to an already classic genre of mobile game.

By tapping the screen on declines, you can increase the pull of gravity and in turn your acceleration. Release your finger on inclines to launch yourself high into the sky. You can earn bonuses by collecting coins, sliding perfectly along the contours of the hills and valleys, or covering a particularly large distance in the air. So, as you polish your precision tap-and-release skills, you can boost your point totals and climb your way atop the worldwide leaderboard.

One thing we wish Moon Chaser included was a way to somehow add time to the clock, or should we say, light to the moon. As it is now, the only way to earn more time is by passing a stage. This makes it incredibly difficult to make up for bad start, which can be frustrating if you're just learning how to play.

Overall, we think Moon Chaser gives Tiny Wings a run for its money. While it may not bring anything particularly new to the genre, its game play is very smooth, and its graphics are sharp and attractive. We highly recommend giving it a try.
