[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Fan Studio, a mobile app and game development company boasting over 20 million total app downloads to date, today is thrilled to announce the release of Solaris: rover expedition 1.0, their latest mobile app game available for both iOS and Android users. This space-oriented game offers players of all ages the unique ability to design and test their own space rovers on the rough terrain of a Mars-like planet.
The game challenges players to design a rover that can travel the furthest distance while dealing with terrain obstacles such as loose rubble, crevasses, and rocky precipices. Set against a graphic outer space background, the space exploration vehicle maneuvers across the imagined rugged landscape, while a counter at the top of the screen shows the distance traveled in that test run. Solaris: rover expedition aims to appeal to amateurs and engineers alike, with a simple UI that makes it easy to play, while allowing for more advanced players to employ different design ideas through trial and error processes.
The rovers are designed by using the finger to draw any shape around an engine and adding up to six wheels (which can be resized) on the vehicle. The rover is then launched onto the planet's surface where it moves across the varying terrain. During gameplay, two power-ups are available: a hover boost, which lifts the rover up off the ground, and a speed boost, which propels the craft forward. There is no limit to the number of times a power-up can be used, but there is a re-charging period during which they are unavailable. Players also have access to a bonus feature that launches space rubble into the air. The test run (game) ends when the rover is stuck or no longer able to move forward.
Solaris: rover expedition focuses on distance over speed and is playable in either single player or multiplayer mode. Coins are earned each time a rover is designed and launched, and they can be used later on to enter into the weekly tournament. During these tournaments, Solaris: rover expedition players will compete against each other with their custom-designed rovers to see whose travels the most distance.
