Mines of Mars

JohnBTime to get digging. Mines of Mars is a wholly addicting mining and exploration game created by Crescent Moon Games. It plays a lot like the classic Motherload or the criminally underappreciated early iOS release I Dig It Expeditions. Take your pickaxe and start pecking away at the soil, gathering metals and gems you can carry back to the surface to refine into useable materials. Then take those materials and upgrade your tools so you can dig even deeper!

Mines of MarsMines of Mars is equal parts mining, crafting, and exploration. The touch controls divide the screen in half, dedicating the left side to movement and the right side to aiming and firing your gun. Yeah, you get guns. Who said Mars was a safe place? Since the game pushes the discovery angle, you'll find much more than just blocks of bronze underneath the surface.

There are a few drawback to Mines of Mars, including the miniscule text size, the needless narrations, and a somewhat slow upgrade process. But the game still has that ability to draw you in from the start. Once you start mining, you absolutely won't want to stop. Not until you get all the upgrades and dig to the very core of Mars. The added bonus of a story and objectives to complete only makes the addiction stronger!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
