More about Surviving Mars

Humanity has entered a new era of development. The era of colonization of new and unexplored planets has arrived. Earth has become too small for humanity. In this game you have to go to the planet Mars to colonize it and build an economy there. Yes, Surviving Mars is an economic strategy with elements of urban simulation. So what have the developers achieved in this idea?

The main objective of the game

Imagine in the not-too-distant future, when you don't need a lot of money to go on an expedition to Mars. Mankind is already ready for it, both technically and morally. It is at this beautiful time and the events of the game unfold.
You will become a discoverer on the surface of the Red Planet. First, you'll create a small bridgehead and set up infrastructure by remotely controlled droids. And then provide comfortable living on the planet for colonists in the form of volunteers.

Mission Organization

You'll need to choose a mission planner for your mission to Mars. This choice will determine, among other things, the complexity of the campaign.
You are allowed to choose from several nations:

  • USA.
  • Russia.
  • China.
  • International Organization.

Then you have to choose a starting cargo and set off. Where to land and start exploring, at which specific area of Mars - you choose!


The main goal of the player in this story is to survive and build a strong and great colony with a large number of colonists inhabiting it. So construction takes up an important part of the gameplay. If we speak about tasks - they are really very various and futuristic beautiful.

The Red Planet in the game was recreated with striking realism and attention to detail. You then build a dome to protect your population from meteorites and storms.

Then you pull power lines to provide electricity for the construction of new nuclear power plants and wind farms.

In addition, the game provides a system of technological development. It is built on the achieved points of science. In the course of development, technology will improve, becoming more efficient. And the player will have to pay attention and the aspect of ecology within the domes. The domes in this game are prototypes of Earth cities.

You will be able to mine the surface of the Red Planet for various valuable resources for development and, over time, even water. Cultivate cultivated plants.

Surviving Mars is based in many ideas on the board game Terraforming Mars. Its gameplay is truly addictive and you often forget the passage of time. The gameplay process is solely geared for single player play. But even alone the game will not make you bored for a minute. You can download Surviving Mars at ODVme.com.
