Vermes on Mars Review:
Overview: Positives: Negatives: Verdict: AppStore Details: Name- Vermes on Mars
Vermes on Mars is a simple yet fun game, where you control your vehicles around mars, defending yourself fron the ‘Vermes’ and fighting them as well, so you can advance to the next of the many levels it has. The theme is that there are valuable minerals on the planet Mars, so we send un-manned vehicles to extract it, but on arrival, we are meeted by unwanted and unexpected guests, so it is our job to destroy them, and do what we came to Mars for.
Vermes on Mars is a good game that can be put under the genre of Pick n Play. Whenever you feel bored and have some time to give to your iPhone, this is one of those you will play. It has neat graphics that support the retina display. One of the main features of the game are its sound effects and background music. The music fits the game well, and provides a fun experience while you play the game, adding to its positives. The fun sound effects also add to this.
One thing that I did not like that much were the controls. You tap on a side of the screen to switch to moving your vehicle, and you tap on the other to switch to firing weapons. In weapons mode, you tap where you want to shoot, and in movement mode, you draw a trail. Most of the times I forget which mode I’m in, and i end up tapping both sides of the screen to make sure I’m on the mode i need, and till that time the Vermes attack and I lose some health.
Other than an issue with the controls, Vermes on Mars provides a short, fun experience. Though it has tons of levels for you to play through, they will feel repetitive, and you won’t find yourself playing it for hours. Since it costs just $0.99, Its a good game if you have a few minutes to give to iPhone games, but if you’re the kind of gamer who sits and plays games for hours, well then, this game isn’t for you. On the whole, its a good game, a job well done. It deserves a rating of 3.5/5
