App description: Vermes on Mars is a top-down sci-fi shooter, which is available for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Vermes on Mars is a action-laden 2d game with
* a multitude of very beautiful, procedurally generated levels,
* an exciting and inspiring gameplay experience,
* a unique and stunning visual look and feel,
* a great soundscape and electronic-orchestral score, and
* an excellent input scheme with a very nice touch!

In each level four unmanned intelligent vehicles are placed at the players disposal. The player is supposed to find and neutralize each worm that hides in the soil, while collecting the priced materials, which can be found on the terrain. The difficulty varies during the game and always delivers a challenging and entertaining experience. There are different species of worms on Mars, ranging from snappish sandworms to stampeding rockworms and scorching fireworms. Each of the players bots can be upgraded and can be replaced with more efficient vehicles while the game progresses.

Thanks again for all the comments from the community, espacially to the beta tester, which were recruited here. Without you Vermes would not have been as it is now!

Feel free to provide any feedback!
