Explore The Creepy Depths Of Mines Of Mars For Treasure And Secrets


Deeper on we go.

Mines of Mars is a fantastic mining and crafting game with a mysterious story, developed by WickeyWare and published by Crescent Moon Games. It’s along the lines of Super Motherload or SteamWorld Dig, in that you must manage your fuel and cargo space while you dig deep into the crust of the Martian planet to find ores, gems, and other secrets.

You’ll come up to the surface to fuel up, exchange ores for ingots, play some fun mini-games based on arcade classics like Berzerk.

It’s a game full of mystery and atmosphere, mostly due to the creepy storyline and amazingly atmospheric soundtrack by composer Evan Gipson. Check out the trailer below to see what it looks like.

There’s a story here, full of scary hints about what might be hidden somewhere in the mines. The map is procedurally generated, which means it’ll be a different game each time you play. As you go deeper and deeper into the mine, you’ll find pits where you can add your raw materials and craft better weapons and mining tools to allow you to go deeper and take on bigger and badder monsters.

Not only does it include huge bosses, a night and day system, and a ton of flora and fauna to find, but the developer plans to add co-op play to the game soon in a free update, which will make it even more fun.

If you’ve got a spare $4.99, head on into the App Store now and grab a copy of Mines of Mars for your own and get in on the action.
