Mars Rising 1.0.2

Terran military assets on Mars and in Martian space were attacked in a devastating and overwhelming surprise attack. All but Deimos have been lost. Despite the magnitude of the loss and bewilderment as to how the Martian Defense Force could have seized control of the planet so easily, Terran Command has ordered a strategic retaliatory action against key Martian facilities. You are to strike from Deimos using prototype Vac-Fighters. It's a good thing you're wearing clean underwear.

Developed by David Wareing, Mars Rising is the hottest shooter to hit the MacOS this century. The vertical-scrolling game puts one or two players in the pilot seat of the prototype Vac-Fighter. Armed with a Wave Motion Gun and a bottom-mounted explosive payload delivery system, the Vac-Fighter is one hot piece of hardware - the perfect fighter-bomber for settling interplanetary disputes.

Mac Games Rating Steje Vobs (8/14/2004 - version 1.0.2)
I like this kind of game, but Mars Rising was not that good. Why? First, it is challenging, but very slow-paced - it lacks intensity. I wonder if the developers had ever played any modern shooter - DoDonPachi, for example - because this game plays more like Xevious. It ignores all the evolution brought forth by developers like Cave, Toaplan, and Raizing. And, the biggest problem: tapping the fire button sucks. This really makes my fingers hurt. It would be better to hold the damn thing to blast the enemies. Good things about it? The levels looks crisp (albeit lifeless), the music is good (even though the sound effects blow), and it seems to be a solid, very well coded program. Good if you want old-skool fun, but I take more off MacMAME and some nice ROMs.

Mac Games Rating Maniac (5/29/2001 - version 1.0.2)
A wonderful game, full of action. One of the best Mac shareware games ever written. Great value.
Mac Games Rating Daniel M. Dreifus (12/31/2000 - version 1.0.2)
This is my favorite game of all time. The attention to detail is excellent, levels are extremely well thought through, and the replay value is unsurpassed. This game is really fun to play, yet always fresh.
