Remake of internet game MISSION MARS out now! FREE (AGAIN)!!

FREE

Hi guys,

Just to let you know that i have just released my first game on the app store

it a remake of mission mars - which can be found on miniclip

Description which is on the app store:

"Take part in the alien invasion!

Your Martian Command Centre has given you the task to fly your UFO over the enemy city and destroy it.

In order to land your UFO and conquer that level, you must use your space bombs to level the enemy city. By destroying all the enemy towers you will secure a safe landing area for your spacecraft.

The alien towers have been built in such a strategic way, that it is easy for you to miss your target hence a greater chance to crash into them.

The altitude of your UFO will continue to drop so you must ensure that the level is complete before your UFO flies too low.

Each level gets harder as the enemy continues to build higher towers!

To make things even trickier, your enemy has altered your UFO to make sure you can only drop one bomb at a time!! 

Thatís right!! You can't drop another bomb until the previous one explodes."

Its free for now so please feel free to download it and spread the word!

Hope i havnt broken any of the rules in posting this here. sorry if i have!

Oh wow! I remember this game from about... damn, 1980-something! I think the last time I played it was on an Amstrad CPC. Good memories!

not to be cheeky or anything but can anyone advise a decent way of spreading the word?

Thanx

Ah, the sweet wave of nostalgia... may be from 2004, but nostalgia nevertheless

Just had a super quick go and it's pretty damn good. Simple, but then so is the game it's based on so really it's spot on. I think it would be nice if you could make the background change in later levels, maybe different times of day?

I think the audio may have been making some clipping noises, but it could be intentional... I didn't use my earphones so I couldn't hear it much anyway. Also the UFO on the menu screen... looks too clean for space travel

aloha.

Welp, downloaded and played a few times. Little bland for me, with little purpose (bar the obvious), but I have to say, for a first game, very well done mate

Plays smooth, graphics are good, simple game play

I'm trying to hook up with someone to do a game (me the graphics)...so if you'd like to work with me on the idea, drop me a pm
