39 Days to Mars PC review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on 39 Days to Mars by It’s Anecdotal.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the game from the developers for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, this had no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
39 Days to Mars is an indie puzzle based adventure game about a man and his cat (or Man and his robot in co-op) traveling to mars using a ship he’d built. The game takes place in the Victorian era so the artwork and shit designs match the era. Everything is beautifully drawn and it’s pretty impressive how smooth everything looks.
The game’s main focus is on it’s puzzles rather than a story. Each puzzle you encounter is unique and they’re just difficult enough to make you think about each solution. The puzzles aren’t all that difficult to figure out but I’m also a veteran of puzzle adventure games so I breezed through them. The puzzles are well designed though and they’re actually quite fun to figure out.
The game’s main pull is actually it’s local co-op feature. You can play through the entire game in co-op and it leads to some incredibly humorous moments. Especially because you and a friend control 2 different hands and you must work together to lift and move objects. May lead to some feuds about which one of you is doing something wrong. It’s great fun though and it’s also the developers recommended way to play it.
Overall, 39 Days to Mars is a charming game with some very fun puzzles to solve. Since the game is mostly a puzzle based game, it’s not very long. It’s also a bit lacking n story and replay value but I still came away impressed. I especially loved the artwork and the soundtrack was quite good as well. If you’re in the mood for a short puzzle game or are looking for something new and unique to play with a friend, then 39 Days to Mars is a pretty good option overall.
Thanks for taking the time to read this short review folks and I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
