History Meets Science Fiction in The Great Martian War.
Imagine yourself in the midst of World War I. Now imagine yourself in the midst of World War I, but with Martians as the foe. That’s what you get with The Great Martian War, a new game for iOS and Android devices.
The Great Martian War is set between the years 1913-1917 during the great war that engulfed Europe. On June 28, 1913, a massive shockwave rocks Europe from the heart of the German Empire. While this looks to be the start of the war that everyone is fearing at the time, it turns out that the Martians have landed. The Great Martian War is based on the scripted drama of the same name that aired on HISTORY late in 2013 in the UK and Canada.
The player is immersed into this War of the Worlds-type Martian landscape as a runner name Gus Lafonde. His mission is to collect rations and Victisite, Martian technology, to help the Allied Powers survive the war.
Some of the main features of The Great Martian War include:
- Virtually endless gameplay: Randomly-generated levels allow for non-stop fun
- Visceral combat: Immersive 3D visuals and sound effects place you in the middle of the Martian War
- Massive scale: Escape through vast environments and exciting set pieces as you progress through 18 player levels
- Period-specific battle gear: Beat the odds with World War I-themed power-ups
- Achieve the impossible: In-game achievements challenge you to finish your mission and collect rewards
- Dynamic content: The Martian War universe is always expanding with ongoing content updates and new features!
After playing a few levels to test the game, I found myself hooked and wanting to play more. The game play is fantastic as it feels as though you are in the middle of a movie. The controls are very easy to use and the user has the option of either tapping the screen or tilting to direct the runner. The music is haunting and exhilarating at the same time.
It’s great fun and I recommend it to anyone looking for an addition to their mobile gaming collection.
