The rover vehicle can be driven on Mars surface, and there is also a stage underneath the terrain.

The Unearthing Mars story begins at least 20 years after the landing of the Curiosity Rover on the Red Planet.

Players will explore and traverse the Mars landscape, and solve puzzling ancient mechanisms which seem to hold the secret to the past. Players must also survive against the onslaught of an alien invasion, requiring fast hands and defensive skills. Those who survive may finally know the secrets of Mars.
