Life on Mars is very much steeped in retro style territory, from its visuals, gameplay, and feel. Anyone who is familiar with the Metroid or Turrican games, or even the original MSX2 version that was originally released in 2015, will know what to expect with Life on Mars: plenty of action, platforms, and exploration. Mix in some RPG elements against the backdrop of an intriguing science fiction story and we have a fascinating gaming experience.
Influenced by classic sci-fi films of the 80s and 90s, the game’s plot involves a space scientific colony on Mars, of which Earth has lost contact with. The player’s task is to go to the red planet, restore contact with the colony, and find out exactly what went wrong — classic sci-fi setting. According to the game’s Steam page, Life on Mars features four difficulty levels, weapons upgrades, shield/energy improvements, weapon workshops, non-linear level design, and explosions.
