Waking Mars is an Action/Adventure platformer. This game has an engaging storyline, beautiful graphics and engaging puzzles.

You must traverse the caverns beneath Mars. Along the way you’ll have to repopulate each cavern with a set amount of life before advancing. You’ll have to research the life and find out how they react to certain things. For instance if you throw a hydro seed at a green plant, it will flourish and emit health regeneration but also it will reproduce two green seeds. Another example would be if you throw a seed at one of the spider-like creatures, it will eat it and spawn another of its kind.

Overall this is a highly imaginative game and it’s the best game I’ve played in 2012 thus far and even though the price is higher than most iOS games, it’s worth it in my opinion.
