As the CEO of a space company, you compete with other companies, all vying to turn Mars into a habitable planet.
They use vast resources and innovative technologies to raise temperatures, create a breathable atmosphere and water-filled cities and oceans; everything we humans need to survive.
Terraforming Mars is a turn-based mix of card and board games. You use your starting capital to buy cards that, when played, provide you with various resources or bonuses.
You can see exactly how this works in practice in the trailer:
Some cards can only be played when certain temperatures prevail or a certain oxygen level is reached. Of course, stronger cards that give you a lot of resources or particularly strong bonuses per turn have higher requirements.
In order to surpass your opponents, you must have collected the most victory points at the end of the game, especially for building challenging projects.
Those who like strategy game can download
Terraforming Mars is useful for anyone who likes strategy games where quick reactions don’t matter. Instead, you have to develop a basic tactic at the purchasing stage of playing cards and adapt them over and over throughout the game.
Even those familiar with the board game model will get their money’s worth, as the computer takes on some annoying tasks like counting resources.
