Description: Experience the all-time favourite Romans from Mars in Virtual Reality (VR) with Google Cardboard! You are a Roman soldier, and you and your crossbow are all that stands in the way of the invading Martian army. Use hands-free movement to launch arrows or use your elemental powers like Fire, Ice, Earth, and Lightning to take down enemies. Hold the line and defend your castle walls or risk Earth being overrun by these wacky Romans… from Mars!

Review: You might want to sit down, I have bad news. Aliens dressed as Romans are attacking earth and it’s up to you single handily to stop them. The good news is you have a crossbow and God-like elemental powers of Fire, Ice, Earth, and Lightning. Yes, it’s a crazy storyline, but it’s better than some game storylines I have read. Using auto-fire or the trigger to fire you will have to take care of wave after wave of evil aliens. Some arrive with bombs on their backs, some in a suit of armour and some almost bigger than your castle itself. Castles, Romans, Aliens? Yep, this game has it all.

While Romans From Mars 360 does get repetitive quickly, it is a great game to play for short bursts. With a score challenge to pass between friends and a good amount of hidden things to find this is one game, you will be playing for a while if you want to finish everything. With some great looking graphics and easy to play mechanics it really is well worth a download, but I would wait and grab it in a sale for sure as it does get rather relative quickly.
