Mars Explorer

Itunes Link:


Basically you roam around a Mars like environment just playing around in a buggy that can sprout wings and a hovercraft that can float on lava.Its $3 and there is a free online version.

But it seems that the iPhone version is missing most of the features (mainly online)

They have said that online is in the works, so this may be one to watch.

does it have an uplink to actually control the 5 yr old rover directly

ah, i couldn't resist

thanks for pointing it out, will have to try the online version first though

edit: its funny, looking at the screenshots, i could of swore, although i haven't been there myself to confirm, that mars does have an atmosphere, and not a galaxy looking skyscape..but its all good

and as for the online play, i dont feel like downloading the unity web player, if it was flash, i might of wasted a few hours, maybe later

Yeah, I had to download the Unity player too.

It is a lot of fun to start an empty game an just drive around trying to trash your vehicle. May actually buy this game.
