The Great Martian War:
This is an interesting game, that has been released by TheSecretLocation developing team. TGMW takes you to 1913 where you’ll play as Gus Lafonde, a great soldier, you need to survive while trying to defeat the Marian warriors. Earth has been invaded and it seems like you are the one who can save our beloved planet.
It resembles Temple Run games but with a bigger world that you can run through in order to save Earth and defeat the Martians. Also, The Great Martian War for Android comes with a great story that takes you to major battlefields as you have to avoid stepping on land mines, artillery strikes, tanks and some other type of Martian war machines. The gameplay is endless, as you will notice while progressing through levels. You will need to collect Victisite and Rations in order to enable ‘powerups’ that will eventually allow you to complete levels easier.
This game offers a strong World War I vibe due to the great 3D visual elements, sound effects, weapons, equipment and other similar elements that we all remember seeing in pictures from WWI and movies set in that terrible period of our human history.
