    I bought this one off Steam last week. You play as a scientist exploring underground caverns on Mars. There's an interesting storyline guided along by several companion characters who communicate with you as you progress. The controls are simple, and there are many different paths you can take through the game. Highly recommended.

    Is it a side scroller? What did you think of the graphics?

    It's a platform game where you fly around on a jetpack in all directions. You're also able to run, walk, crawl and pick up or throw objects. Each section of the underground cave gives you an objective, such as finding the resources to fuel an energy source, or cultivating life. There are many different paths you can take around the map, and you can fast travel to areas you've already visited.

    The graphics are good. The creatures and plants in the game move and react in a way that makes the game feel immersive. This is an indie game that costs $10 upon release. It's not going to blow your mind. But, unlike most of the more popular and more expensive games I've bought, this one had virtually no glitches or problems.
