Author's Description: Mars is my entry for the 2003 TINS competition. This game was made in a single weekend. The game is a side scrolling space shooter. The earth has sent brightly colored jellies to invade mars. You are a martian trying to defend your planet. You are equipped with a high-speed flying saucer with molecule blaster. You start with a simple Helium cannon but during the game you'll find powerups for more devastating molecules such as oxygen and ammonia.

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 8.0
  • 8Excellent game! All is great. Just too bad it's so much similarity to Alex 4's space shooters game. And the lack of a pixel-perfect collision detection gives it a whole point off.
  • 8One of the best games submitted to TINS. Runs fast on my slow computer and was great fun.
