Amazing game! I wasn't so sure at first but i'm glad I gave it a chance because it became my favorite game. I am hooked on it! Its not like any game i've played before. You are basically exploring a giant cave on mars and finding out about different plant life but it slowly becomes more complex as you go because you must use your knowledge of various things you've come across in order to proceed to other areas. Its way cooler than I think i'm explaining it. This is a Must Play!!!
I know this game is quite a bit older, but it's still really good. Cultivating an ecosystem on Mars is more fun than it sounds. Love the art style and professional voice acting. Really adds to the atmosphere of this game. My only gripe is the control scheme. Touching in the direction you want to go is fine, but it covers the screen at times. A joystick option would have been perfect. Other than that, this game is a steal at only a dollar.
This game offers so much more than you think. It is truly a rare exploration adventure game with a lot to do and keeps you intrigued. Worth every penny. Edit : After replaying the game a year later, I finally managed to raise "broken reservoir" to max and also finish the game in hard mode with over 20000 biomass which took some patience and dedication. Thank you dev. for an amazing game.
I love Waking Mars! Despite its occasional crashes, this is a great game. Beautiful graphics. It is a good mix of adventure puzzles and video game. I like that dying doesn't set me too far back.
Absolutely amazing! I've never enjoyed a puzzle game like this one before. The story is spectacular with a good balance of science and fiction to make it a great sci-fi lover's game. There is a bit of learning and strategizing that opens it up for replay even after you have finished, and know the story. Played several times and I keep finding things I missed before! The music is calming and most of the sound effects are pleasing. Sometimes they 'pile up' but leaving the area and coming back fixes it. I have only noticed an occasional crash when changing locations, and I think it is more of an issue with available memory than it is with the game itself as it seems completely random. It is a very unique sort of game that I would love to see more of. I will be watching this developer as I hope for more. The story and mechanics go flawlessly together, and I'd love to see expansion of both either as future installments of the same story, or building along the same lines on other planets/moons ect. I see a lot of potential here. This really is a spectacular game for the price.
Being a big story guy when it comes to my games, the big draw was the interesting plot running behind all the different sections you gain access too. But the game didn't just stop there, on top of that they also integrated the mechanics into the plot in an interesting way. Especially interesting is the game is designed in such a way that you don't defeat enemies to proceed, instead you need to figure out a way to get life to thrive in each section in order to progress, which was a fantastic touch. Very unique game all around and well worth the recommendation.
Thanks for playing Waking Mars! Here's what's new in version 2.0.5:
- Additional fix for in-game lighting effects for high-resolution devices like the Galaxy S4 - this was incomplete in 2.0.4
- Android L support (new!)
Thanks for your patience!
- 1GB RAM recommended
- Note that the compressed download is about 300MB in size (most of this will install directly to SD card if available)
