Mars Defender - 3D Asteroids

Mars Defender is a space shooter with an RPG storyline, in development for the iPhone/Android. It's loosely based on the classic game Asteroids, although with proper 3D models and a large game area. Later missions also involve other spaceships fighting with you and against you.



You can try out an early web-player demo here: Mars Defender Web-player demo (4 levels prototyped so far - requires installation of the small Shiva/Stonetrip web player plug-in)

In the game you are generally trying to defend the planet itself or the Bova Space Station from asteroids and enemy ships; some missions also involve travelling to Phobos/Deimos and later to other locations in the solar system. The story focuses on a war between Asteroid Belt colonists and a Mars/Earth alliance.
