Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 9.5
  • 8There are some very fun aspects to the game, such as latching onto a rocket and steering it around the level. :) But there's a bug in the martian's movement Try jumping to the right whilst holding a spring. :o
  • 10Former version was awesome years ago without the music and other plusses, it just got even better ! As for the retro graphics, I like them very much and consider it to be one of the BEST aspects in the game to keep the old-school feel.
  • 10Lovely game and excellent music! I'm sure some won't give it a chance due to the extreme retro graphics, but I found them quite charming, and the gameplay is wonderful.

Michael WeissI taught myself how to program in BASIC on a commodore PET when I was still in elementary school. In high school I taught myself assembly language on the Apple II. Purple Martians is the first video game that I've completed. I learned C at the same time. Many thanks to the team at DJGPP and Allegro. Open source rules!!! I also write and record songs, check them out at: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/4/michaeldavidweissmusic.htm (View Profile)
