More an experience than a game So far this app works ok on my Galaxy s5. Lost a star for the time it takes for stuff to happen. Wish it were a game that you can sit down and play through. Instead it's more of a story, and it often takes Mark a while to respond. Still worth it for the price if you're a fan of the book/movie. Update: Lost another star because it keeps notifying me of a new message that just doesn't appear. Update 2: I finished the game and reset it. Now it keeps crashing on startup. Will try reinstalling.
If you like "Lifeline" by 3mGames you need to play... This game is similar to my all time favorite series of games, Lifeline by 3 minute games. An interesting twist is that in this you need to look up answers to real scientific questions. Also, the time in which you respond matters. That's actually difficult and not something Lifeline enforces. Certainly worth a play while waiting for the next Lifeline game to come out. Failing in lifeline allows u to remind to any decision at anytime moving forward. This only lets u rewind 1 choice then u have to fail again.
Don't waste your money It worked the first few days, then the app wouldn't start for weeks. With the hope of an update to fix the issue I waited but it was for nothing. I had to reinstall the app to get it working again and lost all my progress. I'm very disappointed. I recommend Lifeline instead, which never had any issues.
innovative and fun I enjoyed this game quite a bit. I loved The Martian book and movie so the app just extended the pleasure. I did have some difficulty where the app would hang. Needed to restart my phone to fix the issue.
Awesome concept... ..not so well executed. Force closes and other bugs that keep you from progressing. Plz fix. UPDATE: game just reset itself, now i have to go through everything again?? -1 star. I'm at a point where I'd not recommend buying this. I love the idea and the movie but it's kind of unplayable like this :(
The app is very glitchy. Just like how it was on my Kindlefire thats with Amazon I know. So the app doesn't even open anymore. A screen pops up and said unfortunately the app has stopped working. I just recently watched the movie and all so I thought about giving this game another try. But of course nope. Doesn't work. I'll try again when I wake up or in a few hours. UPDATE: I tried it again. I get farther than i did before. But once i got to the point where Mark was all packed up and leaving, the app stopped working. The title screen would show up then this would pop up "Unfortunately, The Martian has stopped." and then close. I do enjoy the story. The greater detail of him going through the construction modifications and reading the personal emails and the movements where he absolutely loses it. I kept me thinking and on the edge of my seat. Good story and game mechanics but the app is very crappy.
