Galway based studio 9th Impact have today launched Biker Mice: Mars Attack! globally on iOS and Android based on the 90’s kids’ favourite Biker Mice.
The game is a turn-based strategy game based on the Biker Mice from Mars TV show and inspired by the classic 90’s game Advance Wars.
The action takes place on Mars and players control infantry, artillery and air units of the Freedom Fighters as they seek to reclaim Mars from the Plutarkian invaders.
Players choose the move and attack of each of their units, then await the opposing force’s response. Upgrading troops and equipping them for each battle is core to successful missions, of which there is over 30 to complete.
Fans of the show will know the backstory and recognise all the characters, but for other players the game is a war strategy challenge with many hours of tactical gameplay.
This is the second game the company has made based on the TV series Biker Mice from Mars. The first game, simply called Biker Mice from Mars, was an episodic story based runner. Players ride motorcycles through the streets of Chicago, dodging obstacles, shooting Greasepit’s goons and foiling Limburger’s plots. The game has been well received by fans of the show judging by the Play Store ratings and comments.
“Biker Mice: Mars Attack! is a completely different feel to the first Biker Mice game,” said Finn Krewer, head of development at 9th Impact. “In the first game we focused on the action, parody and the funny one-liner elements from the TV show. This game is slower and more strategic – the flashbacks scenes to the war on Mars were always poignant and intense.”
