BackgroundMars is a Sci-fi RPG action game that innovatively merges character development and light and rythmic fights. It takes you on a journey deep into an original futuristic universe and presents you with scenarios dealing with difference, racism and environment.
You play the role of Seth, an elite soldier with a dark past, or Pandora, an ambitious technomancer, experiencing two different gameplays thanks to the fact that each character played independently from the other has different backgrounds, skills and features.
In the destroyed world of Mars, two destinies mingle together. Two beings searching for their identity travel across a broken planet, constantly facing bloody political conflicts which tear the old colonies apart. Often divided, sometimes fighting the same enemies, both are the source of the advent of a new era…
Game PlayThe combat phases are dynamic and spectacular no matter your level of implication during the quests.
Most confrontations are brief : you move from one enemy to the other striking or throwing spells one after the
other. Combat against the bosses or champions lasts longer though, as you must use different tactics to beat them.
As you can also modify your environment by breaking part of a roof or moving metal plates to use light as a weapon, the fights gain a more strategic dimension.
Playing the role of Pandora is as intense as playing Seth. To make her cast her most powerful spells a precise timing is required as well as constant movement to avoid being interrupted. Even though she is less powerful she is more agile, and just like the warrior needs his weapons, she is nothing without her gauntlets which allow her to canalize her fluid.
All enemies, if wounded enough, can be finished off in a spectacular way.
