About Those New Reviews..

The recent reviews show the game isn't fairing well long term, and we won't release it into any more bundle packs, because surprise to me, playing it for 25 cents or so generates a lot of negativity compared to the launch - which was mostly positive. Why? It's a little odd.

If anyone wants in a on demo alpha for the new mars game send an email to tech @ awestruck games dot com. And make your case. You'll have a lot more bells and whistles in the new Star Rangers game, and 3 years of new tech.

This little game is meant to be played once and it's fun. It's several years old now, but the voice actors and music is superb and the mini-lesson is okay, but a first attempt at some "serious" learning in a game. I'm going to of course, recommend this, but it's up to you; I suggest watching the first minute of a youtube review (there are a lot), and then do not spoil it.

Also - there's like 23 people playing it right now, so please add a review; we can take it - maybe ask for features - it's okay by us; we haven't stopped simulating Mars in the last 3 years. :)

Despre acest joc

Experience the thrill of standing in the boots of a future astronaut on Mars in the world of Starlite.

Participate with your crewmate in a single-player 20 minute mini-adventure that soon turns into more than you bargained for on the Red Planet.

Players navigate a future Mars mission in which they must construct a habitat, craft tools and use advanced robots. The game contains hands-on science inquiry and problem solving in mathematics, physics and engineering.

Starlite: Astronaut Rescue is the first release in the series leading up to alpha testing of the multiplayer online game Starlite: Astronaut Academy in summer 2014.

People who purchase Starlite: Astronaut Rescue will be guaranteed a spot in the Starlite: Astronaut Academy beta test.


  • Unity Terrain Mars Environment and Shadows
  • Futuristic "MNRV" advanced rover setting
  • Advanced "biosuit" style space suits by M.I.T.
  • Professional Voice Acting
  • Integrated Intelligent Science Crafting Engine
  • Realistic Physics for Mars Gravity
  • Realistic Locomotion
  • Advanced Robotic Rover Navigation
  • Original Story and Dialog

The application awards an official Mozilla Open Badge to those who successfully complete the mission.

Did you ever dream of going into space.... becoming an Astronaut and being one of the first people to stop foot on mars? When you were younger did you put on a tin foil helmet, tie a sheet around your neck, and climb piles of dirty clothes pretending you were walking on Mars... If so you were probably super stoked for this game... I never did these things though ..... (shifting my eyes from side to side to hide the fact I'm not being honest)...

I figured for less than a dollar I'd grab this game, try it out for the 20 or so minutes that people claimed I'd get from it, pat myself on the back for taking a trip to the red planet and feel joy.

Unfortunately that didn't happen, this game glitches like crazy..... the first glitch was the work bench, it wouldn't let me combine the items.... After trying about 1000 different directions I decided to check on line to see what I was doing wrong.... I did nothing wrong the game just didn't want to register that I was crafting....

So I finally get past this glitch and nearly immediately afterward I'm hit with a puzzle.... awesome... I solved the puzzle using the calculator..... sigh... again the game glitches up.

It's not the worst thing in the world, but gets kind of annoying that you need to continually restart from the beginning after every glitch.. I can't recommend this game at all, even for .89 cent. It's far too short and bug ridden to be worth a purchase at all.

Save your money for something else. The only saving grace is the fact that buying the game will allow you to get it's 1 achievement fairly easily... Is that enough to purchase the game.... well ask yourself if the extention of your e-peen is worth whatever price the game is selling for... I don't personally think it is.

Well, it may have been created by professional people, "advanced "biosuit" style space suits by M.I.T.", but honestly, it's shocking how badly made this game is. You'd figure it would be amazing since it was made by people working at MIT and NASA, but no. This game is short, boring, glitchy, and the graphics make me want to cry. But hey, it's $3, so who cares?

This program presents itself as a game, and to be honest, it fits the definition, but it's definately not something you'd expect to see on Steam. It isn't terrible per se, but it can do with a LOT of improvement.

For starters, the player moves around like a steady-cam; Everything is smoothed out, from the movement over hills down to the motion of the mouse. It feels unnatural to the point it seems you're playing a drone of sorts.

Then there is the geometery; Terrain smoothing has been around for about a decade now, and it could have been used to some extent and look better than it does right now. Even with graphics set to the max I can see the edges a mile away. It is sloppy and it shouldn't have to be that way. And this doesn't go for just the terrain. The objects, entities and vehicles themselves look bad because of this. It is impossible to make a curved geometery that works on all hardware, but there are shaders and filters and all sorts of tricks that are very effective on that front.

Texture quality; Well, there is some, just not a whole lot. This is again one of those points that would have been acceptable a decade ago. With an option 'Beautiful' I expect to see high resolution textures.

This would all be acceptable in a simulator, which I suppose this falls under, if the actual simulation demanded high detail or amount of calculations that would justify sacrificing graphical fidelity. And that is probably what upsets me the most; It looks and feels quickly assembled in a Unity editor with little to no attention to detail or features.

It looks and feels like a demo, which, at the time I bought it (a few years ago) was a bit more expensive than the 5 bucks (if not less) that's advertised these days.

It does a good job as an educational tool, however, for both children who want to be astronauts and game developers alike (the latter probably isn't a complement though). It has some nice lessons in frequencies and stuff, but that's about the only thing it has going for it. Wel...it has the NASA logo up front, and it pained me to see the Gates Foundation in there as well, especially since it has the tendancy to crash when ALT+TABbing, but that may just be me.

All in all I cannot recommend this for what it is. I love the idea, but there is no game here. What little simulation it has is completely on rails and there is no way to mess up or discover something that deviates from the main story, which plot also escapes me...

I hope some developers got a lot of experience out of this, and I'm not sure about it's current price, but if you see this for anything over 50 cents, just leave it be.

One final sidenote, this is an alpha test for Starlite: Astronaut Academy, to be released in 2014. That was a year ago. It has been sold (and still is) as seperate full-release title (There is no Steam Early Access disclaimer on the store page). These 2 things don't bother me as much as the fact that over the years there have been no updates, improvements or anything that indicates this being a work in progress or part of a bigger project which is still in progress (although I'm pretty sure that one's dead as well).

A 20-minute look into the bleak future of United States space exploration if we continue cutting NASA's budget and failing to educate our citizens in math and science compared to other countries. It's a little-known fact that, during the development of Starlite: Astronaut Rescue, highly intelligent individuals who once helped put man on the moon were forced to simulate having no scientific education. The result is a game with physics that are all wrong and only 20 minutes of plodding, unrealistic content—all they could manage to create under these conditions before giving up. A real eye-opener, and a future none of us want to live in.

It looks good in the video and the notes seem intriguing, but for a a game that you play once, this should be free. It's an interesting educational tool that should be flushed out much more fully. The really is one task - determine the wavelength of a radio signal. The description makes it sound like there are more of these types of puzzles, but there aren't.

Even the surrounding terrain, which is supposed to be from Curiosity, is very low-res and could easily be improved upon.

All told, this looks like a 3D game kit's demo rather than a true game - even educational.
