really fun short game. You can beat it in an hour and a half, so it's nice to just sit back and relax while you play this game. really great atmosphere and the story is very simple. good if you just want to zone out and relax.

Great game. I love the music. The dialogue between the Moon and the planets is also pretty interesting.

This game is short but enjoyable. Not something you would ever come back to but worth playing once. Would reccommend it at any price around £1 - £1.50.

Charming, relaxing, great soundtrack. Unique twist on platforming. More than one "right" way to beat a level. A beautiful minimalistic game.

Short and cuter than you'd expect a jumping circle to be.

Fun game, unique puzzles, too short of a game. Not worth four dollars for the 1:26:00 it took me to complete. Buy when on sale.

6180 is a short, and not extremely difficult, sidescrolling platformer that makes interesting use of the 'screenwrapping' technique. This can be a challenge as I find you don't immediately think in the right mindset to deal with this, but once you get used to it it can provide a nice challenge.

It tells a story about space, but I don't really think there's much to that other than the cutscenes.

The game is pretty short, but it does offer extra levels once you beat the game (but these are just the same, in reverse).

10/10 Great soundtrack.
Apart from a few minor issues, this game is pretty good. I was able to complete 100% in about 2 hours, and that was without even actually seriously trying. The most defining feature for me was the soundtrack. It was so relaxing and fantastic. Worth every penny.
As usual, get it on sale!

This is a small minimalist platformer in which you guide the Moon in quest of finding the Sun which has stopped shining. Main mechanic of the game is that there are no borders; screen just wraps around. Whereas in other games falling into the abyss would kill you, here you just emerge from the top of the screen. New things are introduced when you progress throughout the game such as spikes, breaking blocks and moving platforms. Game has 50 levels which are distributed into 5 areas in solar system; when you finish them in order to complete the story you need to go through them once more, this time in reverse. Gravity is also changed to keep the game less repeating, it takes a small time getting used to falling upward.

There is a small story presented and consists of moon chatting with some planets and the Sun itself. Dialog is nicely written, you can easily imagine planets as real persons. It reminds me of Thomas Was Alone in this regard, too bad there isn't more of it. Game does not overstay its welcome, it will take you about 1.5 hours for completion.

6180 the Moon is amazingly good! The movement mechanics became almost natural with surprising speed, and such a great idea to have wraparound! The story was amazing for such a short game, and was rather touching. The music is amazing, and really adds to the atmosphere, what little there is in space! ;) Everyone should play this, you will never look at a platformer the same way again.
Bottom Line: Totally worth the money!

6180 the moon has some interesting mechanics, a very cute and simple story and a really good soundtrack. It can take a few levels to get one's head around the screenwrapping but the game does a nice job of easing you in. A nice, casual platformer overall.

Fun platformer with great music about the moon saving us mere humans from extinction due to lack of sunlight. Gameplay is good and its a pleasant trip to the sun and back.

I'd recommend you take it.

Short but sweet, definitely worth the low price if you enjoy puzzle platformers. The soundtrack is great.

I play a lot of platformers and 100% completed this game in 1h 50m for reference.

True journey "There and Back again" (4 hours only, not 8) without hobbits, dwarves, old wizards, elves (sorry Legolas) and all that kind of stuff.

It’s about:
  • Moon searching for the Sun;
  • jumping "through the screen" and thinking "in reflection".

Why you should play this:
  • stylish minimalistic design;
  • unusuall mechanic: it's not only platformer, it's also a simple puzzle-game;
  • it will remind you the correct order of planets in our Solar system... well, they missed most of them, but what's left is right;
  • nice soundtrack and suitable sound effects;
  • you are scanning your games library and have no idea what to choose.

Why you may not like it:
  • as any other platformer game it can raise hackles;
  • dialogs between Moon and planets might seem to be a little bit pretentious.

It's perfect "no-rush-platformer", almost meditative - sounds strange, but that's the truth. May be that is the main philosophic meaning of the game: unlike people, galaxy has no reason to hurry.

This is one of those rare games that transcends words like "challenge" and "puzzle" to become something more sublime and enjoyable. The music, the controls, the simplicity -- all elegant and refined. While some levels are tough, there's a deep sense of possibility and probability that keeps the player going. "One more try" isn't a self-abuse tactic here; it's a warm feeling of encouragement. Meanwhile, mistakes often evoke laughter instead of aggravation.

Highly recommended.

6180 the moon, for as terrible a title that may be, plays a little like a platformer wrapped up in a children's book. The sun has gone missing, and with the people of Earth becoming distressed as the light disappears, you the moon have taken it upon yourself to heed their plight and discover where the sun has gone off to.

The writing, shockingly, actually wound up being my biggest issue with the game. Not so much because the narrative is flimsy and only the last handful of lines actually matter, but because it continually tries to fit in a rather odd, ambiguous meaning to the experience that never surfaces, and instead just floats around in the spectrum of weird space occupied by discarded poems and first drafts of better works.

If you disregard the story entirely though, 6180 is a rather delicious little platformer with an interesting (if basic and one note) mechanic of continual motion through the top and bottom of the screen. Falling through the ground pops you back out the top, and its with this in mind that platforms and obstacles are setup to require you to manipulate gravity and momentum to get past. The level designs are fairly simple and the difficulty consistently low (save a few frustrating spikes, pun not intended), but it's engaging and relaxing in a way that kept me interested in playing at least for the 40 or so minutes it took to complete the game.

Similarly, the modest but pleasant aesthetics and sleepy soundtrack fit in right along with an experience that seems designed to be played on a raining afternoon, sipping a cup of tea or cocoa without requiring you to process much more than a single button and the position of a few odd platformers. It's not deep, it's not innovative, and I likely won't remember it for very long, but I don't at all regret the time I spent with the moon and find it easy to recommend as a small snack of a game.

If you enjoy platformers with relaxing music, challenging enough to be fun and with a simple story to follow, this is the game for you. Mandatory if you love this kind of game!

6180 to moon is a charming game, but has a layer of difficulty behind it.

In this game we play as the moon. We are on the search to find the sun which has stopped shining and it made the earth worried.

The game is a platforming game where you try to reach the portal at the end of the level. You avoid spikes and other stuff to reach the portal. But this game has a twist if you jump of a level you will appear at the top of it and vice versa.

The soundtrack is very relaxing and even if the levels get frustrating the music does somewhat calm you down.

With graphics there's not much I can say, cause there's basically nothing to say about them.

The game is fun and for the price it's worth the pick up, but there are a few bad things I want to address.

The game is short, only 1 hour long, but there are reverse levels after you finish the first batch of the levels.

Not to mention the story dialogue sometimes glitches and you have restart the game to fix the problem.

Overall the game is fun and for the price I highly suggest trying it out.

Final Rating:
7/10 - Worth Playing

Pretty addicting game, I was just gonna check it out today, ended up playing for over an hour :p

You play the moon, searching for the sun and visiting all the planets on the way there , asking if they know something about the sun's disappearance. You start with a basic super jump mechanic and then each planet introduces new mechanics and gameplay. although I don't think I've seen the new mechanics combined all together, but then again I haven't played that far into the game.

The levels start off easy as the "moon village" levels are used as a tutorial course, After that you have to buckle up and take some deep breaths as the level's difficulty peaks here and there and you'll need a lot of patience to succeed.
Judging by the achievements, there are quite a few levels to conquer!

I was excited and put my first impressions into a video, check it out -
