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.
Thanks, Tomi, for the tip!

The game is pretty good, but the review screen after every 2 or so levels is kinda irritating. The game runs pretty smooth, but has an occasional lag and might just crash at the loading screen. Otherwise pretty good game.
Wonder if Jessica Lares has completed it already? ;)
What's it with Jessica Lares? Who is she? Just curious.
I never played the game,but it's very addictive.One of best games available on the store,there is only a little lag on my l620 but still very playable.I recommend it !
I'd like to give notice to developers out there, if you drop me to a review screen without asking, and particularly if you keep doing it after I hit cancel, it's an automatic 1 star review. If you'd honestly like me to review your game, ask first. And if I say no or not yet respect my wishes and move on. Pissing me off is not the way to good reviews. And really after two waves (about 45 sec. of play time) I'm supposed to have an honest review? I really hope this is some drop in control that's just buggy, but if it keeps up, not only will it be a one star review, but it will be uninstalled.
Wow, that's powerful! I likey it.
Wouldn't be caught dead playing it but I like the name.
Unconceivable problems on 920. Code is shown instead of text, so it gets out of the bubbles. Pressing [MENU_MAIN_BUTTON_PLAY] (or commonly "play") leads to a white screen. Would love to share the screenshot, but can't.
Happy to have it on my 520. It's awesome on my iPad.
