Great, but... I think this game is awesome, and I would love to give it 5 stars, but there are a couple bugs that are really annoying. The first bug doesn't allow you to cut the cord and release the rover, which is problematic... The second bug occurs during the change between interplanetary travel and atmospheric entry. This bug completely skips the entry sequence and has you plummeting to the surface, without the option to deploy the parachute, resulting again in mission failure.
Great little game. Challenging and inspiring. Well done to the development team, keep it up. Willing to pay for more stuff! @Marco you have to have a low horizontal speed to cut the cables. +/- 1-3 m/s. Same for releasing the Rover. You get a real sense of achievement when u do the whole mission. :-)
Great game, lots of fun Great game, I suggest a few improvements: the ability to pinch zoom the screen, spoken commands rather than popup help, help on releasing and cutting cable (no help for these steps currently, it should say the horizontal speed and altitude required to do these steps) ground missions for curiosity such as drilling and driving (programming minigame) these features would make it worth paying for.
GREAT FUN Super Challenge Makes you appreciate what it takes to get to Mars. I'll never get any funding for my next mission. What a great app. Major challenges and cool graphic design and interesting levels. Curiosity is a keeper. I love it. Ventura
Loving itt. Great game with very good graphics. The only thing is that there is no way to run the rover. Otherwise love it. Please add option to run the rover on the surface.
Pretty tuff First thing I noticed was you don't get to release the parachute on time for the descent and landing. They start you on the mission too freakin late. If the descent and land mission is the easiest I'm in trouble. The ads are pretty shady too. Kinda scared me so had to uninstall the app.
Added Mars Express(mrx)
Added Mars Odyssey(ody)
