Life on Mars is a charming little exploration game where a stranded rover searches for parts and batteries to help it survive for as long as possible on Mars.
Created for Ludum Dare 50 by Anstabo (creators of Crumble), Life on Mars is a game where your demise is impossible, but you can try to stave it off for as long as possible. In the game you take control of a Mars rover that’s stuck on the barren landscape of the Red Planet. You start off as just a rolling box, but as you explore you can find batteries and parts that add better mobility options and help conserve battery power. You will run out of battery eventually, but hopefully you’ll be able to explore a bit and make some interesting discoveries along the way.
It’s a fun little bite-sized adventure with a good progression system and an interesting landscape to explore. You do feel a little sorry for the plucky little rover as it finally runs out of juice, but at least it’s had a nice little adventure along the way.
