Moon-Shaped is an interesting twist on the "Little Red Riding-Hood" fairy tale. How to move the game forward is generally clear, and it flowed very well. There were a few weird responses but nothing serious. For example, "open wolf with hatchet" returned "He's unlocked at the moment." Attempts to go up or down in a yard yields a response about being blocked by a stone wall. All in all, a very solid game and worth the two or so hours it takes to play. Highly recommended for people with an interest in fairy tales.
