Mars: Mars is a platforming adventure that’s out of this world
Have any curiosity about what’s going on over on our next door neighbor in the solar system? Sate that inquiry with Mars: Mars, a game that puts you in the shoes of an astronaut exploring the red planet.
It’s a game that’s golden in its simplicity. A stylish platformer with cell-shaded aesthetics that doesn’t try to be more than what it is. Gameplay is simple and addicting. You tap either side of the screen to fire your suit’s jets, and you attempt to hop from platform to platform with finesse and alacrity. Honestly, surviving on Mars was a lot more complicated (and less fun) when Matt Damon did it. No potato harvesting here!
In addition to the stylish graphics, engaging soundtrack, and crisp controls, Mars: Mars features a cast of unlockable characters that make struggling through the game’s harsh terrain a rewarding delight. Even if your outing ends in your untimely demise, you’ll collect credits that you can then use to buy new upgrades and unlockables.
