Official The Martian title for iOS offers a unique take on gaming by adopting an interactive and text-based gameplay. The concept however is one as you would have already imagined if you’ve seen the movie; Mark Watney, the NASA astronaut, is stranded on Mars, and you are the only contact who can help him survive the predicament that he faces on the red planet.

The game evolves in real time as the help and advice you message over to Mark ultimately dictate how the story develops, which does include Mark meeting his end if you provide him with the wrong information. Such text-based games definitely have an element of thrill and suspense, and as such waiting around for Mark to report back on how your advice panned out, definitely makes you feel like you’re in the middle of it all.
The team behind the title has also thrown in support for the Apple Watch. If you own the Apple wearable, you will also be able to view and track Mark’s vitals in real-time on the Watch to make sure that he is healthy and safe. Additionally you will also receive all incoming messages as notifications on the wrist-wear, while decisions can also be passed on directly from the wrist as well.
The Martian does not contain any in-app purchases either, making it a full experience. The game requires iOS 8 and above, and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
