In the year 2098 the Geologic Industry, a jaint corporate entity, is driving a resettlement project on the Mars. The Martian soil is rich in valueable materials and became the target of profit maximization. So Geologic Industry send four unmanned vehicles to harvest the precious elements, while the terraformation of the planet is still in progress. These vehicles are used to patrol the area and search for minerals. The game has dozens of levels and in each level the players must move their tanks around the environment in search of worms hidden randomly throughout the terrain. While you get close to a worm it will burst out of the ground and attack the tanks.
Vermes on Mars needs 26.3 MB free space on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The whole patrolling process works very nicely with the iOS touch controls. But some times the game’s controls get a bit complex when many worm attack at a time. To move the tanks you can tap anywhere on the device screen to move their tanks and group together at that point. You can also draw a line on which the tanks will automatically space themselves. A very challenging game, but the difficulty is well balanced. Sometimes you may get stuck on any level for so long. But take the challenge to overcome. The graphics interface is also good to play. So you may try this game as you can get it for free.
