App description: ULLA! Play 12 Minigames based on Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds!

The chances of anything coming from Mars are a Million to One, he said...

All 12 Episodes now available!

The original HG Wells story was first published as an episodic adventure for Pearsons magazine in 1897, so in homage we've created a 12-part episodic Minigame Adventure of The War of The Worlds. Each minigame is based on one of the scenes in Jeff Wayne's Musical Version, and features the music, sounds, and dialogue from the award-winning musical.

At Midnight, on the 12th of August, a large mass of luminous gas erupted from Mars and sped toward Earth...

Advance the story as you complete each minigame. Start with the Prequel puzzle adventure quest, where you learn how the Martians surveyed Earth. Work your way through different game styles with each Episode, from puzzle to action to arcade games.

Survive the streets of London under attack! Pilot the Thunder Child to keep the Martian Fighting Machine's at bay while Carrie escapes! Hide from the Martians with the Parson@ Ply cards with the Artilleryman! And ultimately, defeat the Martians.

Featuring the music and sounds of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds, www.thewaroftheworlds.com.

Your purchase gets you all 12 minigame episodes, with music from JEFF WAYNE, narration from RICHARD BURTON, featuring JUSTIN HAYWARD of the MOODY BLUES, and 20+ minutes of CGI VIDEO!

Start your Minigame Adventure today!

Prequel
~ An adventure style game that sets the stage for the coming of the Martians!

The Eve of The War

Horsell Common and The Heat Ray
~ An action survival game. Stay alive, avoid the Heat Ray, and rescue as many surviving humans as possible

The Artilleryman and The Fighting Machine
~ A strategy game of (literally!) unequal forces. Battle the Martians as you sacrifice artilleryman after artilleryman in a desperate attempt to defeat the Martian Fighting Machines.

Thunder Child
~ With a whoosh of spray, swing the Thunder Child toward the incoming Martian Fighting Machines, fire your cannons, and defend Carrie and the steamers escaping the shores of London.

The Red Weed (Part I)
~ Try to stop the slimy Red Weed from spreading over the land as it changes every patch of green grass it touches into red tendrils.

Spirit of Man
~ The Parson Nathaniel is convinced the Martians are demons from the Devil. Is defending the Earth from the demons something worth living (or dying) for?

The Red Weed (Part II)
~ Avoid the claw of a Martian Handling Machine as you make your way to the cellar in this puzzle mini game.

The Artilleryman Returns
~ Help the Journalist navigate the streets of destroyed London.

Brave New World
~ Sit and play cards with the young Artilleryman as he talks about his dream of an underground city.

Dead London

I have been looking at buying this app for some time now but I have read mixed reviews. Some say the mini games are all terrible and have bad controls while other people say its brilliant.

This was a great progressive rock album back in the late 70s, but I'm having trouble grasping its move to a video game. Will the follow up be an action RPG version of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway?

That great progressive rock album is Jeff Wayne's vision of the HG Wells' novel The War of The Worlds. That's no wonder - almost all video games have a plot, and this particular game just follows the storyline of the musical created by Jeff Wayne.
There is no reason not to put the CGI from the show (all those 3D models of Martian machines and so on) into the game.
