From its winning art to its calming music and puzzle design, Luna has a lot going for itself.

An enchanting adventure that boasts some magical hand-drawn animation, but will inevitably leave some players perplexed.

I wanted to explore Luna's world and soak in its sights for hours. Many of its puzzles are rewarding, but a few stinkers mar the experience

Luna: The Shadow Dust is a lovely fable dressed up as a classic point and click adventure. The art direction, the visual style and the soundtrack are simply beautiful, while the gameplay mechanics convey in a solid way the path to the consciousness of the main character. The puzzles are gentle and interesting, but sometimes the game plays too much safe and it feels a little bit too light. Anwyay, Luna: The Shadow Dust let the players live a handful of heartwarming hours.

With all its puzzling adventures, out-of-the-box thinking, and stunning hand drawn visuals, it's a memorable game in its genre. Solving the puzzles offers such gratification that one looks forward to continuing climbing the tower and solving the next. But with a lack of a meaningful story, it lacks complete immersion from the player.

LUNA The Shadow Dust is a very sweet and heartfelt adventure with simple puzzles and pleasant animation, suffering from the slowness of the characters and not always obvious solutions to a particular problem. Anyway it is a great game that must be released on home and portable consoles.

LUNA The Shadow Dust is a magical point-and-click adventure with amazing hand-drawn backdrops and animations. Too bad the puzzles are trivial and the pacing is a bit messy.

Its point-and-click adventure elements eventually feel alternately rudimentary and more than a little tedious.

A lovingly animated and clever point-and-click which, despite issues with pacing and signposting, is still likely to capture many hearts.

LUNA: The Shadow Dust is a hand-drawn, story-driven puzzle game that is sure to catch attention, and even trigger some tears. LUNA is more than just a game; it is an artistic creation. Between its music and artwork, and its touching, unique story, this game offers much more than your typical PC game.
