Far less com­pli­cated than real space travel

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

If the weight of the world is drag­ging you down, con­sider us­ing Mars: Mars to take a lit­tle trip to … well, you know. This sim­ple game makes you an ad­ven­turer on the Red Planet and asks you to guide your jet­pack-equipped self from plat­form to plat­form while keep­ing your speed and di­rec­tion un­der con­trol. Miss a plat­form — or come down too quickly — and you’ll fall apart.

As you progress, you can un­lock ex­tra goodies that make the game more in­ter­est­ing, in­clud­ing dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters. The game has in-app pur­chases, but you won’t need them to en­joy the float­ing, fall­ing and fly­ing in this un­com­pli­cated plat­former. Just don’t get too at­tached to your as­tro­naut.

Free, for An­droid and iOS.
