Waking Mars Updated With Full Retina Display Support, Price Slashed
Tiger Style enhances the Red Planet, then adds new jetpacks.
Waking Mars is one of the App Store's best adventure games, as you explore the Red Planet interacting with various aliens to kickstart its ecosystem. It's both moody, challenging and attractive, a wonderful combination for success.
Thankfully, it just became even more appealing. Developer Tiger Style just released what it calls the May Day Update that adds new jetpacks to the mix, letting players hover in place, move faster and perform other cool tricks.
What's more, the game now fully supports the new iPad's retina display, as seen in the attached (and gorgeous) screen. That's 3.1 million pixels generated at 60 times per second, at a resolution of 2048X1536.
Finally, the game is currently on sale for $2.99, which is a great entry price for newcomers interested in experiencing this sci-fi trek. Do yourself a favor and check this one out.
