It is not common to see a planet-exploring game on Google Play but in Mars: Mars you will do exactly this and then some more. This free Android app will take you to the red sands of this distant planet where you will have to survive… if you can.
The gameplay of Mars: Mars is simple but hard at the same time. You assume the role of an unknown astronaut who has crashed on Mars and now you have to find your way around, gather resources and ultimately survive and then make it home. To do that you must fly from one landing area to another by using a jetpack but the problem is that you have limited fuel. To make the astronaut fly just touch the display of your Android device and when he is airborne touch the left side of the display to make him go right or touch the right side to make him go left. When you are above a landing zone, make sure to touch both sides of the display to activate both engines so that you can slowly land. Crashing and dying is very easy and all it takes is for you to touch land anywhere, which is not part of the landing area. Fortunately the game gives you an unlimited number of lives so you can die as many times as you can. Also, by landing on a certain area (and there are many, many of them) you can collect resources such as additional fuel and others that will make your life easier. After a while you can get more and more astronauts on Mars, sent from Earth that will try to save you. With time this game becomes more and more fun and we cannot but appreciate what Mars: Mars gives to every player. This gameplay is wrapped in nice 2D visuals that successfully re-create what Mars looks like and this adds even more value to this app.
Mars: Mars is a really nice game that will bring you tons of fun. Although the game is hard and you will die a lot, it has the visuals to make you feel like you are on the Red Planet and it also has a challenge that is hard to resist. So get Mars: Mars now and have fun! We guarantee that you will!
