Romans From Mars is a new game for Windows Phone 8 that pits you against an invading Martian army led by the God of War, Mars. You play the role of the Roman soldier perched high atop a castle wall armed only with a crossbow.
Romans From Mars has enjoyed a decent amount of success over on iOS and Android platforms. Based on just a short time playing the Windows Phone game, it should share similar success on our platform as well.
Game play is straightforward, take out the invading Martians before they reach the castle walls. There are ten different types of alien invaders and your crossbow can be upgraded to improve its destructive ability.You also have power-ups that give your soldier the elemental powers of fire, ice, earth and lightning.
Graphics are well-done, game play slow at first but quickly picks up speed and overall, Romans From Mars makes a nice first impression. The game does load a little on the slow side though.
Romans From Mars is a free game with in-app purchases to build up your bank account for gaming store purchases. Romans From Mars is available for Windows Phone 8 devices (including low-memory devices) and you can find your copy here in the Windows Phone Store.
