Love this game

ZRKRS November 28, 2015
The camera part of the app works but the game itself doesn’t. It’ll say tap to start so I tap but nothing happens and my phone freezes and I have to restart my phone. Not happy

Louise X November 17, 2015
Every time I try to load the AR or the game, the app crashes. This had so much potential but it doesn’t work

Alan Shilling November 21, 2015
Loads the initial screen with “tap here to visit moon and ” tap here to play game” but both links do nothing, just return to desktop. Epic failure John Lewis, perhaps you were trying to be too clever?

Kayla Reardon November 17, 2015

Jay Bailey November 20, 2015

This game is so Cool! I cant wait when my cousins see this on Christmas. This game also reminds me of the John Lewis #ManOnTheMoon advert (which is so sad)! THANKS JOHN LEWIS! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
