"It's Metroid with a different set of questions for the player to answer: ‘How will this plant react to these conditions and to this creature?’"

食物連鎖を作りあげ、火星の洞窟内に生命を復活させていくというゲームです。生態系を作り上げる…なんていう大げさな物では無く、緑の種を植えると緑の種を吐き出す植物が生えて、その種を食べる動物が増えていき、動物を食べる食虫植物がその動物を食べてさらに種を吐き出すのでそれをゲットしていく、そんな簡単なパズルゲームになっています。それほど難易度も高くなく、なんとなくダラーっとプレイできる、そんな感じの小粒な良作でした。

アクション性はありますが……。
現時点では(一か所、めっちゃ厳しい箇所を除くと)まあアクション苦手のぼくでも楽勝です。
むしろパズルに近いですが……ううん、そこまででもないか。
そういう言葉を使っていいのかよくわからないのですが、
RPGみたいな感じです。
情報を集めながら城へ行ったり、洞窟へ入ったりしたドラクエを思い出しました。

ただ……そういうどちらかというとストーリー性のあるゲームなので、
キャラの会話がわからないと面白くない。
やることはほんと大したことじゃないから。

それで……日本語MODを入れてプレイしたのですが、
そうすると、いくつかの機能が使えなくなります。
植物図鑑を見るだったかな?
まあその程度はぼくは気にならないんですが
……なぜか、とたんにフリーズも増えてしまった。
それで、なんかいじってるうちに、日本語MODが外れてしまって、
今は英語プレイしているのですが、
そうなると、もう、ぼくはまったく面白さがわからなくなってしまいました。

なんかヘンテコレビューでごめんなさい。

Deciding take a break from the great and loud AAA projects and start download this game. What can I say, the recent indie games please me more than popular brands. If you are looking for mega graphics then just pass by, and if you want to turn your brain to think a little, enjoy a beautiful story and finally awaken Mars, you should definitely try it!
Recommend 10/10

Story = Interesting / pretty good
Gameplay = really good
Graphics = good (aside from cutscenes / dialoges)
Guidance = overwhelming to the point of confusion
Controls = pretty good
Voice acting = decent
Replay value = not really... once 100% completed, why bother?

Overall = Well worth the money, even at full price.

Sumary: I haven't completed a game in quite a long time... and I've never once gotten 100% achievements unlocked for any game. But this game was compelling enough for me to keep going and actually get it 100% completed. I'll admit that it got a little frustrating / confusing towards the end and I ended up resorting to some outside guidance through steam discussions in order to figure out my next move, but I'm sure I could have eventually figured it out on my own if I had that kind of patience. The 3 endings for the game (not including the optional pre-mature exiting the cave ending) really helped keep me interested in re-loading the game to see the other endings, and of course, the other endings kept getting better and better. The voice acting was a bit weird in places though. Like the 3rd ending where he goes up into space, her reaction was a little anti-climactic and didn't really feel like a realistic reaction. As far as the guidance goes... the game really tries to help you out throughout the entire game, it even gives you an interface of details for each species in the game which helps a lot, unfortunately, if you forget something task related, or make a big mistake (namely the explosive seeds when you first get them and ending related areas)... it's possible to end up being stuck in the game with no clue how to progress further since you can't get the cutscenes / dialogs to repeat, so make sure to read and listen very well the first time.

Overall, I really enjoyed the game. Highly recommended for those looking for something different than usual.

Waking Mars is an exploration platformer where your primary direct game mechanics are picking up and throwing seeds. Really. And it is quite good.

Basically, life has been discovered on Mars. You are one of the astronauts who has been sent to explore said life on Mars. You make first contact with them and discover that they are these plant-like lifeforms, that produce seeds, which you can use to plant more of them. There are also, conveniently, barriers that open when you have enough of them growing.

That last bit might seem like a convenient gameplay mechanic, but it actually ties into the story. Yes, a surprisingly intriguing story follows from all this. The whole game took me about 11 hours to complete, and I can vouch that the story is interesting.

The game is an exploration-heavy metroidvania, consisting of interconnected areas to explore and grow things in. There is a certain depth of strategy to how to grow things, since different things have different biomass values, and you need to exceed a certain biomass value to proceed, or to unlock other features. Also, you can pick up some seeds, but not others, and not all terrain is suited for planting all things. And then there are more complex mysteries that lie deeper within...

Your exploration is punctuated by your contact with your fellow crew members -- one person back at base, and one AI who is a little annoying (and the other characters lampshade this). These characters are okay -- if anything, their voice acting is better than their actual scripts, which are a little redundant. That said, the characters are (needless to say) part of the plot. And there are even multiple endings.

In fact, you could actually make this game more like a silent-protagonist Metroid-like game with a strong element of the player learning game mechanics without being told -- I mean, heck, that's basically what happens anyway, except for the "I wonder how you might be able to do such-and-such" that the characters sometimes say. I strongly recommend this if this game ever gets remade.

Aside from the somewhat chatty NPCs and the occasionally irritating physics (the player-character insists on taking a moment to get his footing very often), this is an excellent game, so I definitely recommend it.
