Shortly after its release last March, my colleague Juli reviewed Waking Mars and concluded that it’s “an incredibly immersive aural and visual experience that you won’t want to miss.” Then, last May, I reiterated its not-to-be-missed quality following its full Retina optimization for the third-generation iPad.
If you still happen to have missed Waking Mars even after our ringing endorsements, now’s a great time to rectify your omission, be it conscious or not.
For a limited time only, Waking Mars is available in the App Store for only $1.99. That’s three dollars off its regular price. It’s a universal game compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, so a single purchase should cover all your iDevices.

Made by the same creative team behind Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, Waking Mars is an engaging exploration adventure game set in the red planet.
“In 2097,” its story goes, “life is discovered on Mars. When your mission of first contact becomes trapped by a cave-in, you must master the alien ecosystem to survive. With time running out, you will make a decision that determines the fate of a lost planet.”
Waking Mars is simply spectacular. And $1.99 is a more than reasonable price point to meet in order to satisfy your curiosity about a game that’s out of this world.
