Ratings and Reviews
Explore the red planet with the help of A.R.T, your (slightly wonky) computer sidekick, and unravel the mysteries of an ancient martian cave system. Your astrobiological research will be essential to surviving this hostile environment, so use it wisely as you cultivate an alien ecosystem of Zoa — or just float around in an awesome jetpack, that’s fun too!
A wonderful game!
This is a really great game. Combine science fiction, gardening, and resource management in a beautiful environment. The best value for money game I've played in ages. The story leads to a satisfying conclusion and you get what you paid for up front.
No in-app purchases sucking you into spending extra money, and a game that relies on quality of game play rather than addiction!
Well done, Tiger Style and the Waking Mars team. I'd give this game 10 stars if I could!
Worth it's price
Great story, gameplay, graphics and the best controls I have ever used on the iPhone. Multiple endings from what I can tell, you can spend many hours perfecting your ecosystem. Very addictive
