Waking Mars Reviews

    Waking Mars is a great adventure style game in the same vein as Metroid (more or less). There's a lot to do here, and it's just a blast to play. It isn't the cheapest game available, but it is a whole lot of fun. Highly recommended.

    If you're looking for a longer, meatier game, then you could try out Waking Mars. It's a game with a surprisingly decent story for a mobile game and with interesting game mechanics. Basically, you have to start life on Mars by planting seeds.

    Played. 5 stars. Very intriguing, executed very well, it has 3 characters so far, you're the astronaut who's exploring Mars. Controls are simple, graphics are great, soundtrack good, I like how you discover stuff on your own and have to think for yourself.

    UltraLisp: I loved this game so much. an adventure in space, exploring a cave system in a martian mountain, and regrowing alien vegetation. How cool is that.

    Waking mars... This one is in a genre all on its own! The art style is simple but very fitting in my opinion. The game plays much like an metroid or castlevania ( metroidvania ) if you will, with one small twist, there is no combat. One simply explores the caverns of mars but don't worry there are hazards and puzzles to be solved along the way. All this with a great soundtrack and this one is one of my favorites! 5/5
