There might be a robot roving around on Mars but Lunar Flight has done what so many dream of and sent men to the nowhere-near-as-red-as-I-was-led-to-believe planet. They are men who pilot lander modules, collecting cargo and data, spinning gracefully through the sky and plunging into the planet’s surface. I found the odd mixture of tranquility and panic rather splendid when dallying on The Moon, and the free Mars update adds a decent chunk of content. New physics, a dynamic dust storm system, crosswind forces and new routes and locations to drift around. The game is also a mere £1.75 on Steam for the next ten hours or so. Less than two pounds for both Moon and Mars! Trailer and dust storms below.
This next bit is the Martian equivalent of driving down the M62 and being blinded by Biblical downpours.
Only the Steam version of the game has been updated with Mars at the moment, but copies bought elsewhere will receive the new content soon.
