Author Comments

In 2540 flying to Mars is an everyday thing, our little hero made a bad landing and broke his spaceship, so he took his emergency Mars vehicle and started his adventurous way to the nearest landing station to find another spaceship and get back to planet earth. Now is where your mission starts to help our hero to get to the spaceship, but be careful unfortunately in your way you will find a lot of meteorites falling on you, as well as some aliens that try to bite you or smaller rocks and big jagged rock sticking up from the ground.

good game to play I cant get past lvl 1

A game much akin to Stinger and Defender, minus the ability to shoot. The gameplay is repetitive and frustrating. The random spawn of enemies and obstacles is something common in games such as this, but this game sometimes just refuses the ability to evade them. A spike may pose as an obstacle with an asteroid blocking the only available exit. The ability to collect stars is also hindered by this. There are times where the terrain gives way to a jump where stars lay intangible just on the other side.

This game might improve greatly with a feature, besides a bomb with the sole purpose of protecting your ship in case you run into anything... which you will.

All in all, this game was fairly smooth running, and the biggest redeeming factor was the slightly whimsical artwork. Perhaps there is an audience for this game, but it's not something I'd play again. Good luck, and keep at it.

Easy to get in, nice music, relatively new enviroment..another avoid-obstacles-type of game. The controls seems easy first, but its hard to dodge the obstacles, since either the rover is to big or the obstacles are. The first level should be easier, its too hard that so much enemies follow your motions. Also if I lose a life, there should be more invincibility time to avoid getting hit twice. Thanks:)

Not a good game in general. Sorry but the whole concept has been done to death and this is just not good enough.

Interesting idea, but it really needs worked on. Controlling it with the mouse like that is awkward, and there are far too many hazards thrown at the player far too quickly.
