Hamburg, Germany - September 16th, 2015 – Today, German publisher Deep Silver FISHLABS and Spanish developers Tama Games and Mutant Games released their first joint project, a skill-based free-2-play game called Stranded - MarsONE, on the App Store. Despite its cute look and cuddly presentation, the charming-but-challenging pixel fest does not primarily cater towards a casual-gaming audience. Instead, it is located in the mid- to hardcore segment and tailored to committed skill gamers.
Set on Mars, the game centers around a little astronaut’s efforts to find a way back home after his space ship crash-landed on the red planet. However, before he can communicate his whereabouts to a rescue crew, he first has to brave his way through 40 dodgy levels spanning across five differing terrains.
Stranded - MarsONE keeps its players hooked with an addictive core gameplay loop, effective one-touch controls, clever level designs and an asynchronous multiplayer mode. In terms of presentation, the title wears its retro colors with pride and delights its players with carefully crafted pixel graphics, well-orchestrated sound design and delightfully staged cut scenes. For a first-hand impression of the game, check out the official trailer on YouTube via http://bit.ly/stranded-trailer.
Stranded - MarsONE requires iOS 6 (or higher) and runs on iPhone 4 (and above), iPad 2 (and above) and iPod touch 5G. While iOS gamers can already download the game from the App Store via http://bit.ly/stranded-ios-en for free, Android users will still have to wait a bit. The release of Stranded - MarsONE on Google Play is planned for the near future and will be communicated in a follow-up press release.
