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!

Wow! Amazing Story unfolding!

I don't often give reviews but I've never played anything quite like this game. You actually feel like you are exploring a new environment. There are a few coordination/speed steps, but it is largely trying things and seeing what happens. I've died 3 times, but it doesn't spoil the game. Great not to have in app purchases. I was sucked in 2 hours ago and just came up for air. I will re rate the game if it does not continue living up to 5 stars, but so far it's great.

RUINED thanks to gameclub

I used to LOVE this game! I played it on my ipad all the time! The gameplay is incredible, love the sound design— this game is perfect…
…Or, WAS perfect. Once Gameclub got this game, they make you pay a subscription to play it. I just tried downloading it on my iphone and I WASTED a bunch of my cellular data to download a game that I did not recognize at all. They make you log in or get a subscription just to start the game! What they SHOULD have done (and I would be fine with this) is allow you to play the game for free, no subscription or trial, but have ads whenever you enter another chamber. But no, they make you have a subscription. I am not about to pay $5 a month just to play my favorite mobile game ever. I’m just glad I managed to get 100% on my game before Gameclub got hold of it.
And no, I do not want to get any of the free mobile games. Most of them are scams/shameless repeats and the rest are just moronic. This was one of the few games that was actually good on ios, now it is just ruined.
Thanks SO much, Gameclub. I would rate this 0 stars if I could.
