Mines of Mars - a mining and exploration game (Forest Moon)

Mines of Mars has actually been in production for quite some time.
Its sort of a sci fi mining game with quests, guns, a jetpack, lots of pick axe upgrades - and fantastic music. It should be out later this year - in collaboration with Wickey Ware.

The design look like a mix between Stargate and Staracraft

Is it going to be 2D?
How does it compare to Waking Mars, because that's the first thing I think of when I hear IOS, Mars, and jetpack?

yes its 2d. its basically all about mining for gems and what not, with quests, aliens, guns. its a bit similar to terraria - has very ambient and atmospheric music.

Also, those aren't concepts, those are the actual buildings in the game.

Is it similar to I Dig It and Motherload in terms of movement and mining?

There are defined blocks, of stuff. I suppose that part is more like minecraft. However, I love I Dig it. Its got a similar mechanic where you go down, mine for stuff, then bring it back to the surface, refuel, revive, craft, etc.
